Keto Cloud Bread – Low Carb Burger Buns

Cloud bread is a great substitute for bread on the ketogenic diet. The term “cloud” comes from the fact that its quite light and fluffy tasting, which comes from the egg whites being mixed and folded into the rest of the recipe.

It is seriously a good burger bun, or even an asian bao bun! I have used cheese and ham in the photo above, but you can pretty much put whatever toppings on it you like.

Cloud bread is a staple recipe for the ketogenic diet. There are many kinds of different bread subsistutes, but if you’re looking for something light and fluffy like white bread, then these are your go to recipe.

Ideally, on a ketogenic diet you would be edging more towards whole foods and mixed vegetables, but sometimes all you want is something easy to take to work, or to have a sandwich and feel like a normal person again.

Do Eggs Contain Good or Bad Fats?

One large egg has around 5g of fat. About 3g of that fat come from healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, or MUFAs and PUFAs. Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats help protect your heart by regulating cholesterol levels. These fats may also help reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes by helping to regulate insulin levels, which stabilises your blood sugar.

An Egg A Day Keeps The Doctor Away… If you’re a good shot!

You can read more about the ketogenic diet in the post at the bottom of this page. It outlines how fats are not the culprit they were once made out to be. Fats combined with high carbohydrate diets however can cause issues as the body loses its ability to burn fat once there is plenty of carbohydrate energy available to burn.

I hope you like this recipe!

Instructions
  1. Crack the eggs and seperate the whites from the yolks. Put all the whites into a bowl and whisk with an electric mixer for 1 - 2 mins.
  2. Add the Cream Of Tartar and whisk again for another 1 min. The mixture should start making soft peaks
  3. In another bowl, add the yolks and the cream cheese and mix on high until well combined. Gently fold this mixture into the egg whites.
  4. Spoon out the final mixture onto a tray lined with baking paper. They do fluff up a bit in the oven so leave enough space to breathe!
  5. Put in the oven on 180 c ( 375f) for 15-20 mins until slightly golden brown on top. Serve and enjoy!

    Adding Pysillium Makes a more bread like product and still no Carbs added and very filling as well.

      Nice one Jax! Yes Pysillium Husks are a good addition as well.

    How much Pysillium Husk would you add?

    How much psyllium do you add?

    • Aaron Day April 14, 2017 at 11:03 am - Reply

      Hi naasirah,

      I would probably add 1 teaspoon

      • Sarah May 20, 2017 at 1:41 am - Reply

        Would you use a teaspoon of powder or whole husks? I have never used psyllium before, but I am always down for a “more bread-like product” without adding carbs. I would like to try it both ways.Thanks!

    This may a dumb question, but is the nutritional info you gave for the whole recipe or just for 1 of the 8 slices? Thanks.

    • Aaron Day May 3, 2017 at 3:31 pm - Reply

      Hi Brenda, The nutritional information is per serving which is 2 slices 🙂

    Can the cloud bread be frozen?…

    • Aaron Day May 7, 2017 at 8:37 am - Reply

      Due to the nature of the mixture, i would only eat these fresh or keep them in the fridge. Freezing would break down the structure.

    When do you add the salt?

    • FatForWeightLoss May 14, 2017 at 8:29 am - Reply

      Hi Rivera.vg,

      I usually add the salt when folding the two types of ingredients together.

    How long do thes keep if you want to make them a head of time for lunches or snacks?

    • FatForWeightLoss May 24, 2017 at 10:39 am - Reply

      I usually make mine on a Sunday, and they still appear to be good by the Friday. You can use them for the whole week, so it depends on how many you would like to make 🙂

    What is the nutritional breakdown?

  9. Lauren May 26, 2017 at 12:12 pm - Reply

    I like to think I’m a great cook/baker, but I must be missing something because my cloud bread turned out super thin and ended up being after 6 minutes in the oven…
