If you're new to me and my content, you may not know what cloud breads are, but when I was pregnant with baby number 3, cloud bread was all I craved! And it quickly became one of the first videos in my viral video series I created to grow my TikTok following in 2020. Almost every day I experimented with a new fun way to enjoy the cloud bread recipe, most of the time inspired by suggestion from someone in my comments.

Read on to see how I turned my cloud bread into delicious cinnamon pancakes!

You'll Need

  • 1 cup (237 ml) egg whites
  • 1 tbsp. (8 g) cornstarch, almond flour, or arrowroot starch
  • 2 tbsp. (25 g) monk fruit sugar substitute or 2 packets of stevia
  • ½ tbsp (4.5 g) cinnamon
  • ⅓ tsp. (2 g) salt
  • ¼ tsp. (1.5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. (5 g) butter, ghee, or coconut oil
  • ½ tsp (1.3 g) powdered sugar

How to Make It

  1. Beat 1 cup (237 ml) egg whites until big and cloud-like.
  2. Add in tbsp (8 g) cornstarch, almond flour, or arrowroot.
  3. Add in 1 tbsp monk fruit sweetener or one packet of stevia, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla extract to the raw egg white batter.
  4. Beat again.
  5. Grease a skillet with butter or oil and bring to medium heat. Spoon ⅓ cup (80 ml) cloud bread "pancake batter" into the pan in the same way as you would cook pancakes. After 2 to 3 minutes, flip and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes on the other side.
  6. Top with cinnamon or optional powdered sugar (or another sweetener) and enjoy.
