Let me tell you, the first time I even saw a picture of this bread I was very skeptical. Some call it cloud bread and that is what put me off because who wants to eat air? Anyway I decided to try it out and OH MY GOODNESS it is so worth eating and does not taste like air at all hahaha! The chia seeds and hemp seeds add some essential proteins as well as fibre and good oils.
Ingredients: Makes about 6 small rolls or bread slices
3 Large eggs (whites and yolks separated)
3 Tablespoons of double thick greek yoghurt or cream cheese (I used yoghurt)
0.5 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
1 Tsp chia seeds
1 Tsp hemp seeds
0.5 teaspoon himalayan salt
Method (15 Minutes to Prepare and 20 Minutes to bake)
Whisk the egg whites until stiff – they should not slide out of the mixing bowl once stiff.
In seperate bowl – mix the egg yolk with the rest of the ingredients.
Once mixed, gently fold in the eggs whites so as to maintain the air incorporated in the egg whites. Video below:
Once that is done. Gently place onto a greased pan or muffin pan. Please bear in mind: they will stretch a bit on flat pan then you will cut them into squares once done. Or, for a round shape: place into greased muffin tin.
Bake for 30 Minutes until golden brown. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes then gently remove. Fill with your favourite filling and enjoy.
