  • Oven
  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • Hand mixer or whisk


  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4.5 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 tbsp ground psyllium husk powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar optional


  • Separate the egg whites from the yolks into two different bowls.
  • Whip the egg whites and salt with an electric mixer or a handheld whisk until very stiff. This will take a few minutes with the electric mixer and several minutes if done by hand. They're ready when you scoop out a mound of egg white and it holds its peak. If you're using the cream of tartar (see tips below), add it as you whip the egg whites.
  • Mix the egg yolks and the cream cheese well. If you want, add the psyllium seed husk and baking powder — this makes it more bread-like.
  • Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mix – try to keep the air in the egg whites.
  • Place as many dollops of the mixture as servings in the recipe on a parchment paper-lined baking tray. Spread out the circles with a spatula to about ½ inch (1 cm) thick.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven at 300° F (150° C) for about 25 minutes until golden.
