It couldn't get easier to enjoy a healthy snack while on Plan, with this delicious cloud bread recipe.
So, what is cloud bread? And where has its popularity come from?
Cloud bread is made from very few ingredients, in fact, our low-calorie cloud bread only has two; egg and quark… and did we mention it’s a great keto-friendly bread alternative! It has taken off on Tik Tok, which is where its recent rise in popularity has come from.
What does cloud bread taste like?
Cloud bread tastes fluffy and doughy, similar to sourdough.
How does it stack up against shop-bought bread?
Cloud bread has less calories than the average slice of shop-bought bread, and has few to no carbs, meaning you’re less likely to feel bloated and heavy after eating it.
Pre-heat the oven to 160°C fan, 180°C or gas mark 4.
Separate the egg yolk and the white into two bowls.
Add the 30g of Quark to the yolk and beat until smooth.
Whisk the egg whites until firm. They should form stiff peaks that will hold even when you tip the bowl upside down!
Fold the whites into the yolk and quark mixture.
Separate into two mounds onto greaseproof paper on an oven tray and cook for 15 minutes until golden brown.
