✨ Recipe Ingredients

For this egg white bread carnivore recipe you will need:

  • 5 Eggs
  • 0.5 oz Egg White Powder (15g)
  • 0.4oz  Whey Protein Isolate  (12g)
  • 0.4oz Beef Gelatine Powder (12g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Xanthan Gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt

👨‍🍳 How To Make

Follow this easy carnivore bread recipe:

Step 1

Start by preheating your oven to 320°F (160°C). While it heats, separate the eggs. The whites go into a large mixing bowl, while the yolks go into a smaller bowl.

Step 2

Add the salt and cream of tartar to the whites. Use an electric whisk to whip them on low speed, and then on high speed until peaks form.

Step 3

Mix the remaining dry ingredients. Sift half over the egg whites and whip to combine well. Then, add the remaining half.

Step 4

Continue to whip until the mixture becomes dense.

Step 5

Use the same whisk and whip the egg yolks until they become creamy.

Step 6

Using a silicone spatula, add the whipped yolks to the whipped egg whites and combine them using an electric whisk until the batter is thick.

Step 7

Pour half of the batter into a 2lb silicone loaf mold. Remove air pockets by banging it on the worktop. Then, fill with the remaining batter.

Step 8

Bake for 30 minutes. Turn the oven off and leave the bread inside for another 25-30 minutes. Take the bread out, let it cool, then slice and serve. Enjoy this delicious carnivore egg white bread! 

P.S: I used a kitchen gas blow torch to give the bread the “crust” layer we all love on regular bread.

💡Tips

1. Allow Proper Cooling and Drying Time

Patience is necessary when baking this unique carnivore bread. Allow the full 30 minutes of baking time followed by 25-30 minutes of cooling down with the oven turned off.

This extra drying out time helps set the structure properly so your loaf doesn’t collapse. Opening the oven door too soon can make it fall. Resist peeking!

2. Gently Fold in Other Ingredients

Preserving those airy beaten egg whites is crucial. After whipping, any other ingredients like egg yolks, whey powder, and xanthan gum need to be folded in extremely gently.

Use a flexible silicone spatula and mix just until there are no more streaks. Rough mixing at this stage will deflate all your hard foam work. Fold, don’t stir!

3. Using Room Temperature Eggs 

One of the most important tips for achieving maximum lift and fluffiness with your carnivore egg bread is to ensure your eggs start at room temperature before whipping. Eggs pulled straight from the fridge will not whip up nearly as well.

Variations

1. Carnivore Bread with Olive Oil- Drizzle 2-3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil over the bread 10 minutes before the end of baking for an amazingly soft texture and richness. The grassy olive flavor pairs nicely with meaty tastes.

2. Spicy Carnivore Bread- For those who like it hot, this variation is for you. Add 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes to the dry ingredients. This will give your bread a spicy kick that can liven up any meal.

It’s a great way to add some heat to your carnivore diet without overwhelming the palate. Perfect for serving with soups or stews, or even on its own.

3. Cheesy Carnivore Bread- Add 1/4 cup of finely grated Parmesan cheese into the mix. You’ll keep everything else the same but prepare for a cheesy explosion in your mouth.

The Parmesan adds a salty, umami flavor that complements the lightness of the bread. 

Storage

Store this carnivore egg white bread tightly wrapped in plastic wrap or in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

For longer storage, place slices in freezer bags and freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw slices at room temperature when ready to enjoy again.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can beef gelatine powder be replaced with another type of gelatine?

Yes, beef gelatine powder can be substituted with other types of gelatine, such as pork gelatine.

2. What is xanthan gum?

Xanthan gum is a common gluten-free thickening agent. It helps give structure and a slight “stretchy” texture to baked goods without wheat.

3. My bread collapsed after I removed it from the oven. Why did this happen?

This can happen if the bread isn’t completely baked through. The additional resting time in the turned-off oven is crucial to fully solidify the structure. Make sure your oven temperature is accurate and consider increasing the baking time slightly if needed.

Low Carb Bread on Carnivore Diet

The carnivore diet, as the name suggests, centers around eating only animal foods like meat, fish, eggs, and small amounts of dairy. By removing all plant foods, people aim to eliminate digestive issues, inflammation, and other health problems.

However, the limited food variety can become monotonous for some. Eating only plain beef, chicken, etc. day in and day out is not terribly exciting long-term. This is where creative recipes come into play for carnivores.

While you still avoid all carb and plant-based ingredients on carnivore, there are numerous ways to add variety and make the diet more sustainable. This egg white bread recipe is a perfect example.

Using Only Carnivore-Compliant Ingredients

The ingredient list contains eggs, egg whites, beef gelatin, whey protein isolate, and basic seasoning/leavening agents. No non-carnivore foods are included whatsoever.

It allows carnivores to enjoy a tasty, bread-like food without cheating on the diet. This bread can be served alongside eggs for breakfast or as a vessel for burgers, pulled pork, or anything that would normally go well with bread.

Eliminates Cravings for Off-Limit Foods

One of the biggest pitfalls that causes people to fail on the carnivore diet is cravings. When you cut out all sweets, breads, fruits, etc. that you previously ate regularly, intense cravings kick in.

Being able to create and enjoy this satisfying bread can prevent people from caving and eating a carb-loaded bread. It provides the experience of bread without any non-carnivore ingredients.

Makes Sticking to Carnivore Easier Long-Term

A lack of variety and intense cravings often make carnivore adherence challenging beyond the initial honeymoon phase. But recipes like this make the diet much easier to stick to lifelong.

Having tasty alternatives to common foods you previously relied on keeps you feeling satisfied. So rather than restricting variety, you actually expand the flavors, textures, and dishes you can eat.

Allows For Recipe Experimentation

Part of the fun with carnivore is finding ways to mimic typically non-compliant foods like bread. This encourages people to get creative in the kitchen and try out different ingredients/techniques.

And when recipes turn out well, they spread rapidly throughout the carnivore community. This continually expands the database of recipes people have at their disposal while eating only animal foods.

So in summary, carnivore recipes like this egg white bread enable better adherence, more variety and flavors, fewer cravings, and endless recipe experimentation. This makes the diet much more enjoyable and sustainable long-term for many people.


This easy carnivore egg white bread is light, fluffy, and perfect for your low-carb or carnivore diet. The ingredients come together easily to make a tasty bread that will satisfy any cravings.
