Cloud Bread

Apparently these have almost taken over Pinterest within the last week or so,they are called Cloud Breads and are completely carb and gluten free. There are only three ingredients, eggs, cottage cheese and cream of tartar.

I had no cream of tartar so I substituted with a few drops of lemon juice and added white poppy seeds and black sesame seeds for added flavour.FullSizeRender

As far as I'm concerned, there is no substitute for real bread, but at a push these would probably be a nice protein rich snack. I think the real charm of these is that you can add whatever flavourings you want to.  Finely chopped herbs, freshly grated parmesan, spices, and garlic or for the sweeter toothed vanilla, cinnamon or lemon zest. The original recipe uses cream cheese, I used low fat cottage cheese instead.
