Easy 3-ingredient keto bread recipe
One of the downsides of eating paleo, low carb or keto is the fact that you cannot eat a regular sandwich. And while I generally don’t really miss bread I do miss having the option to quickly eat something on the go. Which makes these 3-ingredient keto bread sandwiches absolutely perfect. They’re fluffy, easy to make and just plain delicious. Perfect if you’re following a keto diet or low carb diet. So if you’re missing bread? This is the easy keto bread recipe for you.
What goes into this 3-ingredient keto bread recipe
Quite frankly; not much. You need the following ingredients
- 3 eggs
- baking powder
- Greek yogurt
O and a little bit of salt. And that’s all.
The main ingredient for this keto cloud bread recipe is obviously eggs. It’s simple ingredients you use for this grain-free bread.
The first thing you do to make them is to split your eggs into egg whites and egg yolks. You add the vinegar to the egg whites and whisk them into stiff peaks with a hand mixer. Add the salt at this stage as well. In the meantime preheat the oven to 150˚C. (302˚F)
Officially I believe you should be using cream of tartare for this recipe, but since that is not to be found in the grocery store I went for the alternative which is vinegar and baking powder. Worked totally fine so that saves a trip to specialty stores (and having another ingredient that you use very rarely)
The next step is to whisk the egg yolks with the Greek yogurt. Instead of yogurt you can also make this with cream cheese, ricotta, cottage cheese and possibly similar things as well. Once you whisk the egg yolk mixture until it is smooth, you can add the egg whites to the yolks. I use a spatula to fold these together. Just to make sure that I am left with the fluffiest of results.
You line a baking tray with parchment paper and you scoop the mixture onto the tray. I used a 1/4 cup to scoop the mix and drop it onto the baking tray. I was a little worried it would blend all together but it held perfectly.
You bake the 3-ingredient keto bread sandwiches in the oven for around 30 minutes or until golden brown. Don’t open the oven in between as that might deflate them while baking. Take them out of the oven and leave at room temperature for a bit before taking them of the paper. I used a spatula to take them off.
They can sometimes stick a little to the paper, so with a spatula it’s easiest to remove them.
Apparently this delicious bread is sometimes also called oopsie bread. I’ve read that the reason for that is the fact that it’s invention was more or less an accident. To be honest I thought that the name had to do with the fact that they will get a lot flatter after baking. That doesn’t take anything away from the flavor though. It puffs up in the oven but will deflate somewhat after baking. I had expected it to deflate more, so was pleasantly surprised at how they turned out. I’ll definitely be trying out different version for next time.
Where did this keto bread come from?
Apart from the above story of it being a mistake I’ve also seen stories that it was originally created for the Atkins diet. Ages ago. It also seems to be a hit on tik tok where they make a version of egg whites, sugar and cornstarch. Which is obviously different from this healthier version.
What does this keto bread taste like?
To be honest the flavor of this keto cheese bread is quite subtle. I did not find it too eggy but I guess it also largely depends on how you eat it. I ate mine with cheese, salad and avocado. You can spread it with other things like peanut butter or a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Since this is a low carb bread you want to keep the toppings low carb as well.
Why would you eat keto bread?
There are many variations of keto bread out there and some commercial ones are filled with lots of additives. This simple recipe really uses only 3-ingredients and is the perfect vehicle for any other toppings you might want to eat. So this particular bread is delicious if you are on a weight loss regimen and want to stick to low carb bread. It’s the best option I’ve been able to find so far.
It’s also easy to add different flavors into the keto bread. Think about easy things like adding a bit of garlic powder or dried herbs such as rosemary or thyme. Since this was my first time making this 3-ingredient keto bread I will definitely be trying out different things. This 0 g carbs recipe is great for testing out various things.
What to eat on the cloud bread?
I like to pretend these are simple sandwiches. In order to use them in a hamburger style fashion I use two of them. You can obviously use one and create an open sandwich but I also like sandwiching something in between.
I like eating them with cheese, avocado and egg, mayonaise, salad, tomato. Really simple sandwich ingredients. That works best but you can also spread them with peanut butter, jam (that would obviously not be low carb!) and more.
