What is Cloud Bread?
Cloud bread, also known as Oopsie Bread, is a low carb bread made with just a few ingredients. It’s high protein, gluten free, low carb, low calorie, and keto friendly, making it a great option for those with dietary restrictions.
This bread dates back to the 1970’s when the Atkins diet was introduced. The texture is light and airy, resembling more of a meringue like texture. I tried the orginial version using cream cheese and felt it just stuck to the roof of my mouth and was not appealing at all.
I adapted my own version and turned the cloud bread into a loaf with much better taste and texture.
The newest version is Dairy Free Cloud Bread Loaf and today I'm showing you how to turn the loaf into mini keto bagels!
What Does Cloud Bread Taste Like?
Traditional cloud bread tastes a lot like meringue, light, airy and not much too it as far as texture.
This dairy free cloud bread is like no other version you've ever had. These dairy free cloud bread bagels has amazing texture and chewiness!
Keto Cloud Bread Bagel FAQs
Can I replace the Egg White Protein with Whey?
Yes you can replace the egg white protein powder with whey protein but the loaf will deflate some so you have been warned. The texture will be different than using egg white protein but will still taste delicious and more similar to my Cloud Bread Loaf with dairy.
Can I replace the mayonnaise with dairy?
I would not replace dairy for the mayonnaise because then you will essentially have my previous cloud bread recipe and you won't have the same texture.
Can I replace the mayonnaise with avocado oil?
No, the texture will not turn out the same if you replace the mayo with avocado oil.
Can I replace the eggs with an egg free substitute?
No, do not replace the eggs with an egg free substitute. You will end up with a dense bread as hard as a rock.
Can I make these into rolls?
Yes you can make my dairy free cloud bread into rolls instead of a loaf if you prefer. You will bake for 30 minutes and you will need this hamburger mold for best results.
What can I replace cream of tartar with?
If you don't have cream of tartar you can substitute white vinegar. I used 1 teaspoon to replace ½ teaspoon cream of tartar.
Do I need to use the liquid Allulose?
No you can replace the liquid Allulose I used with granular Allulose if that's all you have on hand. But be warned that the granular or another low carb granular sweetener could make your blender too thick to blend. You may need to add water to the granular to be able to mix in blender.
Best option might be to mix using a hand electric mixer instead. You could also just leave out the Allulose as some commenters have had success making the bread minus the Allulose.
How to Make Cloud Bread Bagels
Preheat oven at 300 degrees F.
Place your egg whites in a stand mixer with the cream of tartar and whip until stiff peaks. This should take about 10-15 minutes. Set aside.
Place the egg yolks in a high powered blender with the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
Spoon some of the yolk mixture into the whipped egg whites. Do this in 3 batches until combined.
Grease 18 silicone donut molds and pour batter into each to the top.
Bake on the middle shelf of oven for 25 minutes. Shut the oven off but do not open the door and allow it to stay 10 more minutes in the oven.
Is this the same as Protein Sparing Modified Fast Bread?
Cloud bread has fat in it, though high in protein just like protein sparing bread, it is not the same bread in texture or taste.
Protein sparing bread is for those on a protein sparing modified fast and those looking to greatly reduce their fat intake.
Cloud bread is for everyone else, whether on a keto diet or not, anyone looking for a tasty low carb bread to enjoy right out of the oven warm. With 1 total carb or zero net carbs, depending on how you track your macros, this is the ultimate, tastiest best cloud bread recipe you will ever need!
The Best Egg White Protein Powder
I use KetoChow egg white protein powder. I realize it is expensive but it is a huge bag so you can make lots of my loaf or bagels with it.
