Since I’m back on that #lowcarblife I thought I’d share one of my fave recipes. It is a little tedious but trust, it’s worth it!

Cloud bread is a great alternative for bread or hamburger buns for those of us that are on a low carb or keto diet. It has virtually no carbs (about 1g per piece) and for those of us that crave bread especially when we can’t have it *raises hand* this is the perfect solution, for me anyway. I’m not going to lie, it’s not exactly like a hamburger bun. It’s more light and airy than it is spongy. But hey, beggars can’t be choosers right?! 😛

I like to have salami, brie, and romaine lettuce on these bad boys. The romaine gives a nice texture crunch 🙂 The recipe below yields about 12 pieces.

  8. Spoon batter onto baking sheet into desired size. Note: the batter won’t spread too much so you can create the size you want with the raw ingredients.
  9. Put into oven and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Place onto baking rack and let cool.
  11. Put into a ziplock back or tupper ware and allow to set in refrigerator overnight.
