Cloud “Bread”

Kevin and I wanted to really crack down on a diet this year. I decided on us trying a Keto Diet. I did Atkins years ago but always had a few issues with it. This seems much more controlled and, at least for right now, manageable for us.

Well, Kevin was complaining about how all he wanted was a sandwich. Everything we had been eating felt so heavy. He isn’t wrong….  after some looking online I found this recipe for Cloud Bread.

My issue happened halfway through making them. My hand mixer broke so I needed to beat the egg whites by hand….I think that’s why they came out a little flatter then I would have liked. I have to say though….it fulfilled that bread craving almost all the way. It held together well, it was spongy and a nice flavor. I will be making it again!
