  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Separate the eggs (save the yolks), and place the whites into a large bowl or stand mixer. Add salt and cream of tartar if using and whip the whites for a few minutes until VERY stiff.
  3. Gently mix the protein powder into the whites.
  4. Slowly fold the reserved egg yolks into the whites (making sure the whites don't fall). OMIT YOLKS FOR PROTEIN SPARING MACROS.
  5. Grease a bread pan with Primal Kitchen Avocado oil spray and fill with "dough."
  6. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Turn oven off and leave bread in the oven for 15 minutes to avoid the bread from falling.
  7. Let completely cool before cutting or the bread will fall. Cut into slices.
  8. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to a month.
  9. OPTION: Make bread into 18 buns on a greased cookie sheet.
