This keto bread is incredibly easy to make. You only need three large eggs, cream cheese softened at room temperature, some cream of tartar, some salt, parchment paper and of course, a baking sheet. It will just take 10 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes in the oven, for a total of 40 minutes.
3 Tips for the Very Best Cloud Bread
Start with a clean, dry bowl for whipping the egg whites. A clean bowl will guarantee that the egg whites whip up nicely into stiff peaks, which is an essential part of making this bread. Make sure that there are no yolk gets into the whites, because if they do, the fat content of the yolk will inhibit the egg whites’ fluff power.
2. Take your time when folding the yolks into the whites. You’ll want to fold gently just until the two mixtures are combined. If you fold too fast or too much, you’ll lose air in the whites and they’ll begin to flatten.
3. Let the baked loaves cool and completely rested. If you pull the cloud breads off the baking sheet too quickly, they may tear and break apart into small pieces, and you don’t want that.

How to Make Keto Cloud Bread
3 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons full-fat cream cheese (1 1/2 ounces)
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons white or black sesame seeds
Rimmed baking sheet
Stand mixer or electric hand mixer
Small mixing bowl
Preheat the oven. Arrange a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 300°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Separate the eggs. Separate 3 large eggs, placing the whites in a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, and the yolks in a smaller bowl.
Add baking powder to the egg whites. Add 1/2 teaspoon baking powder to the egg whites.
Beat the egg whites. Beat with an electric hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes for a hand mixer or 2 minutes for a stand mixer.
Microwave the cream cheese. Place 3 tablespoons cream cheese in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 10-second bursts until very soft, about 30 seconds total. Stir until smooth and let cool slightly.
Add the cream cheese and seasonings to the egg yolks. Add the cream cheese, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/8 teaspoon onion powder to the egg yolks and stir to combine.
Fold the yolks into the whites. Add the egg yolk mixture to the whipped egg whites and gently fold until there are no visible streaks and completely combined.
Dollop the batter onto the baking sheet. Dollop a quarter of the batter (about 3/4 cup) onto the prepared baking sheet and using a spoon, gently flatten into a round that’s about 6-inches wide. Don’t fuss too much, it doesn’t have to be perfect. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Top with sesame seeds. Sprinkle each round with 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds.
Bake. Bake until golden brown, 25 to 28 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for at least 20 minutes (the breads will firm up slightly as it cools). Gently lift from the parchment paper.
Storage: Cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.
