An egg fast friendly cloud bread cheese danish recipe that’s super low in total carbs. It’s a nice low carb treat to enjoy any time of day.
After finishing my extended egg fast, I have been maintaining a five pound weight loss. I lost about seven pounds total.
I did gain a couple pounds back after returning to regular low carb high fat eating. However, I’m still eating a lot of eggs and trying to keep my total daily carb intake as low as I can.
By egg fasting, I was able to recognize foods that tend to trigger weight gain. Fiber sweetener is a big one.
When I came off of this last egg fast, I wanted some chocolate and snacked on some Lily’s chocolate chips. Big mistake!
Those chips are sweetened with erythritol and inulin. The next morning, I woke up bloated with stomach pains.
Most likely caused by the inulin, a fiber sweetener. Swerve also uses a fiber sweetener and it has a similar effect, but milder.
The problem with erythritol is that it tends to make me overeat. Otherwise, it’s pretty safe. But, I need to cut back on the amount of erythritol I consume.
During my egg fast, I made a lot of cloud bread. The bread is really quite light and airy.
I thought it would make a perfect danish. So, I came up with this cloud bread cheese danish recipe. It’s very low in carbs and egg fast friendly.
Since whey protein is a primary component in Soul Bread, I used it instead of coconut or almond flour. This keeps total carbs to only 1.1g for each low carb cloud bread cheese danish.
I didn’t have much time to experiment with this recipe. But, I may try just a little coconut flour next time and a bit of baking soda.
The coconut flour and baking soda may give the pastry a better texture. I tried to keep the recipe as simple as possible as well as egg fast friendly.
For the filling, I thought about adding an egg yolk as most cheese fillings do add that. But, I didn’t have an immediate use for the white so I just left that out. I will put that in as an option.
This cloud bread cheese danish recipe makes a dozen good sized danishes. I brought them into work and they were tasty and filling breakfast treats. They may freeze well, but I ate them all before I could test that out.
I’m really in love with cloud bread lately. I’ve been following a low carb way of eating for a long time yet I just discovered this popular low carb recipe.
This is a great low carb bread option. I also see it as a perfect way to make a super low carb cake like this one.
I really have to start watching total carbs rather than net carbs. So, you can bet that I’ll be experimenting more with the basic cloud bread recipe.
Using eggs as the main component rather than low carb flours really cuts back on total carbs. With this cloud bread cheese danish recipe, I can easily eat two danishes and not overdo my total carb count.
