Cloud Bread : gluten-free, low-carb

Now I know what you’re thinking, bread is the ultimate form of carbohydrates. Is there really such a thing as low-carb bread? Well yeah! There is. It is important that you keep in mind that this bread won’t taste like the starchy kind you are used to. But it will hold the ingredients of a typical sandwich. You can even make burgers or mini pizzas. I chose to make Manoushe. Lebanon’s favorite breakfast item, usually consisting of pizza-like dough topped with either a cheese mix or thyme and sesame (or as we like to call it Zaatar).

Low-carb diets are not only for weight loss, although they have proven to have body slimming advantages. Some people are forced to go through life with limited intakes if not completely deprived of bread and its subsequent relatives. From pizzas to burger buns, bread is off-limits. This recipe would definitely come in handy.

The cool thing about this recipe is that it can be sweet or savory depending on how you want to use it. For example, you can have it for breakfast with a little butter and jam. Or you can put a little marinara sauce and some cheese to have mini pizzas. 

As I mentioned before, a low-carb diet can help you lose weight as it diminishes your cravings. Also, your HDL level, which is the good cholesterol, tends to go up. Another benefit of a low-carb diet is that it reducesblood sugar and insulin levels, which is especially useful for patients suffering from Type-2 Diabetes. This type of diet is also effective in reducing blood pressure.

This recipe is also gluten-free so it would be perfect for patients who have Celiac Disease, gluten intolerance, or gluten sensitivity. So listen up and follow me, this recipe is quick to whip up and only needs 4 ingredients!

After separating the egg yolks and the egg whites. Mix the yolks with the cream cheese, the salt and the honey. Make sure that you take the cream cheese out of the refrigerator ahead of time. it should be room temperature and smooth so that you won’t suffer while you whisk. Next, beat the egg white with the baking powder on high speed. this step is very critical so keep watching your mixer. No matter how bored you get don’t turn away. I’m serious, don’t look away to catch your favorite series on TV, don’t answer that whatsapp message, you have a watching mission. Soft peaks should look like this. So when you reach this stage you can turn off the mixer.

Then carefully mix in the egg yolk mixture, stirring slowly. If you over mix, you can lose the fluffiness consistency. Using a spoon, place dollops of the mixture onto the baking trays in order to make them look like this. I wouldn’t recommend making them any bigger as they won’t bake all the way through.
