Ingredients in Low Carb Cloud Bread

  • Baking Powder: This gives the bread its fluffy, cloud-like texture.
  • Eggs: Separated gently!

How to Make Low Carb Cloud Bread with Greek Yogurt

Before you begin, preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. You can line your cookie sheets with parchment paper under the cloud bread, but I prefer a silpat mat on top of my cooking sheet to avoid sticking. Cloud bread will stick if you let it!

  1. Separate the eggs: First, separate egg yolks from the egg whites. I like to put my egg whites into a larger bowl than the egg yolks.
  2. Mix it up: Using an electric hand mixer, mix together egg yolks (yolks only) and greek yogurt until blended smooth. I’d almost say over blend these, and try to get rid of as many lumps and air bubbles as you can. After that, set the egg yolk mixture aside.
  3. Beat the eggs: Next, beat the egg whites and baking powder (some have used cream of tartar instead) until fluffy. Again, whipping the egg whites a little longer than necessary won’t hurt. You’ll know it’s done when stiff peaks form.
  4. Fold it in: In a large bowl, gently fold the whipped egg whites mixture into the yolk and Greek yogurt mixture. Be careful not to overmix, but know that these need to be fully incorporated for your cloud bread to come out fluffy and beautiful. I recommend using a large whisk of some kind to do this.
  5. Scoop them out: Then, using a cookie scooper, take a scoopful of batter out of the bowl. Drop the batter on your silpat baking mat or parchment-lined baking sheets, leaving a little room in between.
  6. Note: Towards the bottom of the batter bowl, you might see some separation, where there is yellow yolk batter separating from the white. That’s normal–usually, the last couple pieces are a little runny and don’t cook as pretty as the first few with all the egg whites. When baking, this bottom mixture will brown a little more than the other cloud bread. This is normal, I promise.
  7. Bake: Bake for 25 – 30 minutes in a 300 degree F oven, or until golden brown. Sprinkle sea salt or other toppings on the cloud bread as soon as they come out of the oven, then move the cloud bread to a cooling rack.

Recipe Tips

  • There are different versions of cloud bread. Some contain cream cheese, others have ricotta cheese, cottage cheese, or sour cream. I’ve found that this recipe works best for my healthy lifestyle and I love that it only requires three ingredients!
  • This isn’t a recipe to experiment with–swapping main ingredients isn’t recommended, but you can easily add your favorite spices to the top as soon as they come out of the oven.
  • If your cloud bread comes out runny or flat, it’s because either the egg whites weren’t stiff enough or you mixed too long and flattened the egg whites. The fluffy texture is all because of the egg whites.
  • The most common issue people run into making cloud bread with Greek yogurt is that they’re flat. Like I mentioned above, it’s all about how stiff your egg whites are and how much you mix your batter.
  • Sprinkle anything you want on cloud bread when it comes out of the oven. Some of my favorites are bagel seasoning, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, garlic powder, or just a simple sprinkle of sea salt.
  • It is important that the eggs are room temperature–not warmed in a bowl of warm water or the microwave, but true room temperature. I leave mine out for at least 3 hours on the counter. I think this helps the cloud bread batter turn out fluffy and not runny. I also pull out my Greek yogurt before, but not necessarily 3 hours before. 
  • Freezing: I have never had a batch of cloud bread last long enough to freeze–we always eat it that day. Since cloud bread is so fragile, I’d be nervous about it becoming soggy after you freeze it. I have had readers say they have frozen it with good results.

Low Carb Cloud Bread with Greek Yogurt

Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 1
Cloud bread is a tasty low carb bread substitute for those following a low-carb diet or any other healthy eating plan. It's a healthier option than regular bread and made with just three ingredients.

Ingredients 

  • 3 eggs separated (room temperature)
  • 3 tablespoons Greek Yogurt plain
  • ¼ teaspoons baking powder

Instructions

  • Before you begin, preheat your oven to 300 degrees. I use a silpat baking mat on top of my cookie sheet, but parchment paper works too.
  • First, separate egg yolks from the egg whites. I like to put my egg whites into a larger bowl than the egg yolks.
  • Using an electric hand mixer, mix together egg yolks (yolks only) and Greek yogurt until blended smooth. I'd almost say overblend these, try to get rid of as many lumps as you can.
  • Beat egg whites and ¼ teaspoon baking powder (some have used cream of tartar instead) until fluffy. Again, I’d overblend these and make sure to get the same consistency from top to bottom of your bowl.
  • Fold the egg white mixture into the yolk and Greek yogurt mixture carefully. Be careful not to overmix, but know that these need to be fully mixed for your cloud bread to come out fluffy and beautiful. I recommend using a large whisk of some kind to do this.
  • Using a cookie scooper, take a scoopful of batter out of the bowl and tap it a few times lightly on the counter to let the big air bubbles out before baking. Drop the batter on your silpat baking mat, leaving a little room in between.
  • Bake for 25 minutes at 300 degrees, or until golden brown. Sprinkle sea salt on the cloud bread as soon as they come out of the oven, then move to a cooling rack.

Notes

  • Sprinkle anything you want on cloud bread when it comes out of the oven–Italian spices, salt, garlic powder, etc.
  • This is not the recipe to swap ingredients in–each of the three ingredients has a place in the recipe and should not be swapped for other foods.
  • It is important that the eggs are room temperature–not warmed in a bowl of warm water or the microwave, but true room temperature. I leave mine out for at least 3 hours on the counter. I think this helps the cloud bread batter turn out fluffy and not runny. I also pull out my Greek yogurt before, but not necessarily 3 hours before.

  1. I was so excited to try this recipe but it was an epic fail. My mixture didn’t resemble anything close to a batter. It remained yellow and completely liquid-y. I put it in a muffin tin and baked it anyway just to see what would happen and they came out like egg muffins. They were basically scrambled eggs. Yuck. No idea what I did wrong. Maybe I’ll give it another try and hope for the best.

    1. Megs, this is a tough recipe, for sure. It took me a few times to get it right. I’d try again after watching the video and making sure to read the tips (like overbeating the egg whites!).

      1. I try till l get it right and I have had SO MANY fails .

    Was nervous to try cloud bread, but with all these helpful tips it turned out perfect! Thank you so much!

  3. 5 stars
    The tips were perfect in helping this bread come out exactly how it is supposed to! Thanks!

  4. can i use full yogurt instead of greek yogurt?

    1. I haven’t tested it with regular yogurt -it might be too thin.

    I’ve made this before and it helps to cure bread cravings.

    YES!!! I have been needing a recipe like this for so long, and now it’s a favorite! Thank you so so much!

  7. Typically when you do an egg white beat you need the egg whites and bowl to be very cold have you tried all the ingredients at room temperature except the egg whites?

      1. A metal bowl and cold beaters to help when bearing egg whites. To compensate for room temp, put a small metal bowl in the refrig for 30 minutes or so or in the freezer for 10 min. To chill.

    Perfect results the first time. I had never even heard of these before I went on WW. It’s a myth that you need cold egg whites. All the research I did confirm they should be room temperature to get the most volume. Though, they separate best cold. So, I let them sit after separating. I made more than my sheet pan could accommodate so put the rest in a cast iron skillet. Worked great, no sticking. If you’re not an experienced “folder” of whites into other ingredients, that’s also VERY key. Plenty of youtube videos on that. I used a spatula as that’s what I’m comfortable with and how I was taught. Thanks for the recipe.

    Great recipe! I’m lactose intolerant so I used dairy free coconut yogurt vanilla flavor and it worked perfectly!

  10. Quick question. Is the calorie count for one piece of cloud bread? I checked other receipts with cream cheese and the calorie count is much lower but you would think with yogurt the calorie would be lower than with cream cheese? Am I being stupid?

    1. For this recipe, the calorie count is for the entire batch.

  11. The first time I made it they came out ok. I used room temp eggs and separated the yolks by sucking them into a plastic bottle. The second time did the same thing and it was an absolute fail. The third time I didn’t even bother and used cold eggs separated the old fashioned way, cold Greek yogurt and added Italian herbs, garlic powder and a little salt into that mixture…and guess what they were the fluffiest tastiest air pockets I’ve ever tasted.

    HOW CAN I ADJUST THE PORTION TO USE AS A HAMBURGER BUN?

    1. Hi Marlo, Just make the pieces bigger by adding more batter to your baking sheet :)

  13. 5 stars
    Great recipe
    Turned out perfect first time
    One of the best I’ve tried. Yogurt is better than using cream cheese.

  14. This woman needs to hush..

    Toooooo much talky talky

    1. How old are you? Seems manners and words aren’t your forte. You’re welcome to go elsewhere for your recipes.

  15. I’m going to try this for the first time. If I want to take it for work the next day, should I make it up as a sandwich or should I keep the Cloud Bread in a baggie by itself and then make sandwich at work? I just wonder how it holds up with some mayo and turkey lunch meat on it.
    Thanks!

    1. I’d keep them separate for sure, and keep the bag opened a little so the “bread” doesn’t get too wet :)

  16. Perfect the first time! Video and hints were so helpful. Thanks so much.

  17. This looks very interesting,going to try

  18. Anonymous says:

    Mine mostly turned out great, however some of the egg didn’t cook all the way through, even after adding 15 more minutes in the oven. It’s mainly on the thicker parts, should I make them more flat?

    1. It sounds like you should make them flatter for sure – do they look like the pictures?

      15 more minutes seems like a lot. Did you change any of the ingredients, by chance?
