How to make low-carb and gluten-free soul bread

Print this recipe
Soul bread may sound like just the kind of carb-heavy food low-carb dieters avoid like the plague, but it’s exactly the opposite. Invented by a low-carb blogger and perfected through diligent testing and tweaking by the low-carb community, soul bread is the low-carb sandwich replacement you've been wishing for. The recipe below is a delicious example.
Using cream cheese as a base and whey protein powder in place of flour gives this bread flavor and keeps it light and airy. This makes savory sandwich bread, but with a few minor changes, you can make dozens of variations such as chocolate soul bread, cinnamon pecan soul bread, lemon blueberry soul bread. Eat these plain, slathered with butter or nut butter or made into French toast. Yum.
