Diet Revolution Rolls (aka Oopsie rolls or Cloud Bread)
There are tons of variations of this recipe out there (and I have tried quite a few, including substituting avocado for the cottage cheese) but this one is the best! These are not excessively moist, do not collapse to nothing (they do collapse when they cool but not nearly as bad as other recipes), and they have a great texture.
Makes 6 Rolls (2 rolls per serving)
- 3 eggs separated
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 3 Tablespoons cottage cheese (NOT low-fat)
- 1 package Sugar Twin (or 1/4 teaspoon sweetener of choice)
- Pam spray (optional)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Spray Pam on Teflon cookie sheet (or use ungreased parchment paper).
Separate eggs very carefully (make sure that none of the yolk gets into the whites). Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until whites are stiff but not dry.
Blend yolks, cottage cheese and Sugar Twin together until thoroughly incorporated. Fold yolk mixture into beaten egg whites (be extremely careful not to break down the egg whites). Mix for no more than a minute.
Place the mixture carefully on the teflon cookie sheet (parchment paper), gently putting one Tablespoon full on top of another until each “roll” is about 2 inches high (or use 1/3 cup ice cream scoop). Repeat this until you have 6 piles. Rolls should resemble delicatessen rolls.
Place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for about 1 hour. Let them cool before removing from the baking sheet (the will deflate a bit).
Do not slice to use for a sandwich (they are not thick enough).

- One entire batch of Diet Revolution Rolls (without sweetener or salt, if you plan on using either in the bread crumbs)
Put the six cooked (and cooled) rolls into a blender or food processor. Process until the rolls become fine crumbs. For drier crumbs, either let the rolls dry overnight before processing. Season according to your tastes/recipe and use in any recipe to replace traditional bread crumbs. When used as breading, this tastes like flour breading (not actual bread crumbs).

Diet Revolution Bread
- 2 Tablespoons Soya Powder (if you have to buy this, here’s a non-affiliate link to what I bought: http://a.co/d/ggqvd01)
- 1 Tablespoon water
While making the Diet Revolution Rolls above, mix these ingredients in with the yolk/cottage cheese mixture. Let this sit for 15-20 minutes. This allows the soya powder to re-hydrate (and not become hard rocks in the bread). Proceed with the rest of the recipe above.
