Have you heard of cloud bread? This grain-free, high-protein “bread” is typically made with eggs, cream cheese, cream of tartar, and spices of your choosing.

I swapped out the cream cheese in classic cloud bread for some plain Greek yogurt. For cheese, cream cheese is surprisingly low in protein. Using plain Greek yogurt instead gives you a little extra protein boost.

If you’ve tried and been disappointed by the banana-egg pancake recipe that is floating around the web, I still recommend trying this. (We thought the banana-egg pancakes tasted like banana omelets, but YMMV.) I was worried that these “breads” would be omelet-like, but thankfully that was not the case.

Instead, these “breads” are light, flexible, and taste like whatever spices you choose to flavor them with. I went with Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Seasoning for its versatility and pop of flavor. Some other ideas are garlic powder, Italian seasoning, cinnamon, or Chinese five-spice.

If you wanted to make 3 ingredient cloud bread, you could skip the seasoning altogether! The simple and inexpensive ingredients make this an easy recipe to whip up whenever a craving strikes.

How to Make Perfect, Fluffy Egg Whites for Cloud Bread

What I’m about to say may seem obvious and silly to experienced bakers and chefs. However, I have never had success in making a fluffy meringue until very recently. If you are making meringue, my top tip is to make sure you use unpasteurized egg whites.

I had been trying to make meringue using pasteurized egg whites from a carton, and it was always a flop. Yes, it is a bad idea to consume raw egg whites. Uncooked egg whites contain a glycoprotein called avidin, which can interfere with biotin absorption, possibly leading to a deficiency.

However, meringue is always cooked, so there is no reason to take the extra precautionary step of using pasteurized whites. Cooking denatures avidin, rendering it unable to prevent biotin absorption.

Some sources claim that it is possible to use pasteurized whites for meringues. However, you may have to beat the whites for four times as long. I can tell you that even after 20 minutes under the mixer, I’ve never produced a fluffy meringue with pasteurized whites.

Since we’re using shell eggs, we need to separate the whites from the yolks. Though I dislike cluttering my kitchen with additional equipment, having an egg white separator is very handy. This inexpensive tool quickly drains the whites from the yolks with little mess.

You can see it in action in the video in the recipe card below.

I was unable to find this neat little gadget in my local stores, so I picked one up here. If you ever need to add a little something extra to your Amazon order for free shipping, I’d check it out!

Cloud Bread with Greek Yogurt Ingredients

Cloud bread with yogurt is made with some healthy whole foods. Here’s your shopping list:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened Greek yogurt (nonfat)
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ¾ teaspoon Everything Bagel Seasoning

If you modify the main ingredients in this recipe, I can’t recommend it will work. Don’t just try throwing some almond flour in there or something like that. The egg whites might not get fluffy like you need them to here.

That said, you do have some leeway in making seasoning substitutions. I’ve also seen recipes for cloud bread using sour cream in place of yogurt.

How to Make Cloud Bread with Greek Yogurt

Let’s make cloud bread with yogurt! Preheat the oven to 300°F (149°C). Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks.

Put the egg whites and cream of tartar in a big bowl. Using an electric hand mixer, whip them on high until stiff peaks form. This took me 4-5 minutes.

Here’s what they should look like:

In a medium bowl, combine the egg yolks, Greek yogurt, and Everything Bagel seasoning until smooth. Gently fold this mixture into the whipped egg whites. Your cloud bread batter should be an even color, but don’t overmix it.

Line a dark cookie sheet with parchment paper. Divide the batter into six evenly spaced blobs on the cookie sheet.

With the back of a spoon, gently spread each blob into a 4-inch (10 cm) circle. Try to make the circles a uniform thickness to help ensure even cooking. Mine were about ½-inch thick (1.27 cm).

Bake the cloud bread for 30 minutes on a rack one-third down from the top of the oven. They should be golden on the outside and not jiggly in the middle when they are finished cooking. Let them cool to room temperature before eating.

How to Serve Cloud Bread with Greek Yogurt

I’m listing this cloud bread with Greek yogurt under “snacks,” but we sometimes enjoy them as a side dish with meals. This recipe can easily be modified to include spices that go with the rest of your meal.

We quickly learned that when you dip cloud bread in a hot soup, it disappears. Whoops! So, I’d say cloud bread is not your best option if you want a dipper for a hot entrée.

What works much better is using it as a vehicle to eat chilled salad. I think this turkey salad or this chicken salad would be great choices.

You could also use cloud bread as a burger bun if the fillings aren’t too hot. Here’s a super yummy air fryer burgers stuffed with cheese recipe for you.

How long does cloud bread last?

You can wrap cloud bread pieces individually in plastic wrap and store in the fridge. They keep about a day and can become a bit soggy after that.

Can you freeze cloud bread?

Yes, believe it or not, you can freeze cloud bread! Wrap the breads individually in plastic wrap and store them in a freezer bag in the freezer.

You can microwave frozen cloud bread (unwrapped) for 20-30 seconds on high to defrost it. Check it in 5 second increments, since all microwaves cook a little differently.

Another way to defrost frozen cloud bread is to use an air fryer. Unwrap the bread and cook for 2 minutes at 400F (200C). Put the bread in a single layer for air frying, and use the top rack if you have an air fryer oven.

To thaw frozen cloud bread in the fridge, unwrap it and let it thaw on a plate in the fridge for a few hours. I was surprised at how cloud bread maintains its texture when frozen and thawed.

FAQs

Is cloud bread healthier than regular bread?

“Healthier” always depends on what your personal goals and needs are. If you are looking for a low carb bread alternative that is very low calorie, cloud bread is a good option. If you’re looking to gain weight, some regular whole grain bread is probably a better choice.

What does cloud bread really taste like?

I’ll be honest here- cloud bread doesn’t taste like regular bread. It’s probably closest in taste and texture to angel food cake without the sweetness. It’s got an airy quality from the egg whites that regular bread doesn’t have.

Why is my cloud bread not fluffy?

You must beat the egg whites into stiff peaks or your cloud bread will be flat. Cream of tartar helps to stabilize the egg whites so they stay airy. Remember to use unpasteurized egg whites, not pasteurized egg whites from a carton.

Why is my cloud bread batter runny?

After beating the egg whites, there should be no liquid left in the bowl. The egg yolk mixture should be gently folded in, so the egg whites don’t get deflated. Watch the video in the recipe card for visuals on what the cloud bread batter should look like at each step in the recipe.

Is cloud bread actually bread?

Most definitions of bread refer to it as a food made of flour, water, and leavening that is baked. Since cloud bread has no flour, it doesn’t technically fit most definitions of a bread.

Who invented cloud bread?

Some attribute the invention of cloud bread to the TikTok user @linqanaaa. Their cloud bread recipe contains sugar and is pastel colored. However, versions of no sugar cloud bread (AKA oopsie bread) have been floating around the Atkins community for decades.
