When it comes to pancakes, almost no one can resist. Unfortunately pancakes are not the healthiest to eat. Many have tried to replicate the fluffy buttermilk pancakes loved by america, but most fail. This recipe is a full proof way to enjoy your pancakes while sticking to your diet. They are low carb and provide high amounts of protein without the addition of protein powder.

Review

Consumers trying to keep their diets low carb while still being able to enjoy a nice sandwich once in awhile, will find satisfaction in cloud bread. It has minimal ingredients, takes little to no time to prepare, and its texture and flavor mirrors almost an exact copy of bread. It’s a carb craving smasher. No other low carb, low calorie bread recipe compares to this one.
