Ingredients Notes

  • Egg Whites: separating the whites from the yolks for this recipe is key
  • Powdered Sweetener: this holds the moisture in the bread and results in a less dryer loaf, plus it adds a touch of sweetness.
  • Redmond Real Salt: Real Salt will make everything you eat taste better.
  • Cream of Tartar: to help stabilize the whites.
  • Muskoka Mornings Egg White PowderThe protein is fermented, which helps to prolong shelf life and ensures you are getting 100% pure egg white protein!
