Low Carb Cloud Bread Loaf is one of the lowest carb breads you will ever make! You can even turn this loaf into rolls as well!
Cloud bread has been taking the internet by storm and for good reason. It’s one of the easiest ways to enjoy “bread” without all the carbs.
Don’t worry this shrinks as it cools!
I’m to quite sure of the original creator, but it may have been from here. Either way, many, many and many more bloggers have gotten on the bandwagon to make it and share it as well.
The only problem I had when trying the original recipe?
The kids and I hated the fact that upon the first bite, it was stuck to the roof of your mouth and all we tasted was the cream cheese. So I wasn’t that impressed, even with all the rave reviews.
But I too wanted a “bread” to enjoy and really hoped it would be my new Go -To recipe.
I had to change it. That’s what I do. So I did. And it is so much better, we’ve been making it a lot around here lately. I’ve got a few other recipes coming this week using it and they are phenomenal!
So I guess maybe it’s not quite considered “Cloud Bread” because if you are doing an egg fast, such as this one my blogger friend Lisa did, I’m not quite sure sour cream would be allowed.
But I’m not on an egg fast and this really needed some substance to it to make it work for me and for the family. So you could try it without the protein powder or use something else besides sour cream if you are doing an egg fast and see how you like it, then try it with the protein powder and tell me how much you love it! There will NOT be any “sticking to the roof of your mouth” with this recipe!
- The rolls are perfect for burgers or sandwiches. The loaf is better for toasting, French toast, Grilled cheese, and my newest recipe, TEXAS TOAST!!

- PLEASE NOTE: When making these as rolls and not as a loaf, the cooking time will only be 20- 30 minutes.
- If you need this to be dairy free, try subbing the sour cream with coconut cream or make your own homemade dairy free sour cream and use egg white protein powder.
- Here’s my French Toast Recipe using this loaf!
UPDATED April 2017: The orginial recipe used only 1/2 cup or 1.5 ounces of whey protein powder. I’ve made this quite a few times since I posted this recipe and have increased the protein powder to see if it would make a difference in how well the loaf kept it’s height. I adjusted the whey protein powder just slightly and it results in a better loaf. I also have found cooking loaf on the middle shelf of the oven is best to cook through properly and mine was done in 50 minutes as opposed to 60min. When I’ve made the sandwich buns they were done in 20 minutes as opposed to 30 min.
