Sweet or Savory

We don’t eat gluten or sugar as best we can, but that doesn’t mean we need fake foods trying to substitute for the deliciousness of wheat and sugar.

You can’t.  Wheat and sugar bake the cake, or something like that.

But there are other foods, that are just other foods, healthier or treats in their own right.

Like this bread, that isn’t, but we use as pancakes or bread or crackers or just a yummy bite of air because that’s how light they are.

Separate three eggs.  

Add some cream cheese, not more than three tablespoons, to the bowl with the yolks, and mix.  

Add a teaspoonish of baking powder to the whites bowl, and mix until it can hold its peaks. 

Then fold the yolks into the peaks, ever so carefully:

Then drop it onto a baking sheet, using parchment paper if you have some:


Bake at 350 for fifteen minutes, then broil for one or two to brown. They will burn fast when broiling, so be careful. Trust me.
If you want to make sweet ones, throw in some honey with the yolks.  If you want savory, spring garlic and rosemary before baking.

I like them with smoked salmon, or sweet ones can be an easy road trip breakfast from baggies without being messy, or they can be plain as a side to soup, or a snack on their own.  For savory, use vegetable spread with some peppers; for sweet, spread a little cream cheese with sugar free fruit preserves:


About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
