Cloud Bread or Oopsies Recipe

Advertisements

Cloud bread or oopsies is what these low-carb buns are called.

I am not one to restrict foods from my diet. The belief that carbohydrates are the villain of our diet no longer resonates in my ears, but I still see lots of people cutting carbs and more carbs…

I believe that for a healthy life the most important thing is to have a balanced and nutrient-rich diet. A diet based on carbohydrates, proteins, and vegetables.

Above all, I like to have a lifestyle that allows me to eat what I like and gives me room for some fatty treats from time to time. After all, since when did chocolate ever kill anyone?

Although I think we should eat a little bit of everything and without crazy restrictions, having easy and practical recipes is essential! Who nowadays has time to waste in the rush of our daily routines?!

And this is exactly where this cloud bread, which I like so much, comes in!

Yes, it’s a low-carb recipe and I just said I’m not one to cut foods from my diet. But on the other hand, it is essential that we know how to balance our diet with good, healthy recipes and above all that we know how to counterbalance our meals.

That said, I admit that at times when I feel like I’m overdoing it (just like during the holiday season!), I opt for lighter alternatives. And there is no harm in that!

But I repeat, as long as it is in a balanced and conscious way!

Carbohydrates are essential for the functioning of our body since they are responsible for giving us the energy we need for the day. Therefore, if I choose a low-carb meal for breakfast or snack, I always try to eat a more complete meal for lunch or dinner and thus achieve a balance between these more low-carb meals.

Why is this? So that there are no deficiencies and the body doesn’t suffer. And of course, to keep my sanity. Nobody survives on water and lettuce!

Besides, I find it super important to have a varied diet and for that, it is necessary to have good recipes always at hand. And this recipe for cloud bread or oopsies is wonderful! The buns are light and fluffy and fall apart in the mouth (they don’t even look low carb!).

They are such a big hit around here that people can’t believe how healthy they are… They fly in 5 minutes!

Let’s check the step-by-step?

 

CLOUD BREAD OR OOPSIES RECIPE (APPROX. 10 UNITS):

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 csp baking powder
  • Poppies seeds to taste

PREPARATION METHOD:

  1. Start by preheating the oven to 180º.
  2. Separate the yolks from the whites. Set the egg yolks aside and place the egg whites in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. Beat the egg whites until stiff, doing the bowl test (turn the bowl upside down and if the egg whites don’t fall out, it means they are ready). Set aside.
  4. Add the cream cheese to the egg yolks and mix well. It’s easier with the help of a wire whisk.
  5. Add a little salt and the yeast. Stir the mixture well so that it is evenly distributed.
  6. Fold the egg whites into the previous mixture until they are well incorporated. But be careful not to crumble them.
  7. Place a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray and pour spoonfuls of the previous mixture onto the tray, in a circle. Usually, 2 to 3 tablespoons at a time are enough for 1 serving.
  8. Sprinkle with poppy seeds.
  9. Bake for 20 min or until the color starts to turn yellowish.
  10. Let cool a little and serve.

Suggestion: Serve these cloud bread or oopsies spread with avocado paste, it’s delicious. And with a poached egg, mnhaaam, how wonderful!

You can use these oopsies to make lighter sandwiches or as a substitute for hamburger buns.

Use whatever seeds you like, from chia seeds to sunflower seeds, flax seeds, you name it… I used the poppy seeds because I really like them.
