Ryan and I have been part of a test group the last three weeks. For those of you who don't know what a test group is, it's when a group of people are selected to try out a workout program from home and follow it and the nutrition plan to see if you can get results before the program officially launches. This particular program deprives you of carbs as the weeks go along until the last week you do not get any. I am a lover of all things carbs and this was a challenge for me. So Ryan and I were looking for ways to make us feel like we were eating carbs without actually doing so. And we found the best substitute for bread! It's called Cloud bread and it counts as a PROTEIN! How awesome is that?
We tried it out and can't say enough about it. The only difference is that we recommend adding garlic powder on the bread after you are done or sprinkle it into the yogurt before cooking. We hope you love it as much as we do!
Serves: 3 (2 pieces is one serving)
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Portion Fix containers: 1 red
Nonstick cooking spray
3 large eggs
1 dash cream of tartar
1 dash sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
1/3 cup 2% plain Greek yogurt
Optional: garlic power to taste
Preheat oven to 300 F
Lightly coat large baking sheet with spray. Set aside.
Separate egg yolks from egg whites. Place whites in a medium bowl. Place yolks in a separate medium bowl. Set aside.
Add cream of tartar to egg whites. Beat with mixer on high until stiff peaks form. Take approximately 4 mins. Set aside.
Add salt and yogurt to egg yolks (optional - add garlic powder). Beat with mixer on medium until blended.
Gently fold 1/3 of egg white mixture into egg yolk mixture. Fold in the remaining egg white mixture until just incorporated. Careful not to overmix.
Using a spoon, transfer a scoop of egg mixture onto prepared baking sheet, gently spreading into a think pancake shape (about 3 inches in diameter. Repeat with remaining batter.
Bake for 25 -30 mins, or until golden brown and the exterior is crispy to the touch. Immediately loosen cloud bread with a spatula and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 3 mins. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Serve immediately or store in an airtight container.
We personally love using it to make Breakfast Sandwiches. We place one over easy egg, sauteed mushrooms, and shredded cheese on the cloud bread to make a sandwich. It was amazing and no different than the real deal! We highly recommend trying the bread for this!
