Try our beloved bundt cakes with a new twist — peanut butter glaze, citrus icing, and a new wheat-free version!
While the summer heat blasts, we're working on re-imagining some of our bakery classics — recipes that have been loved by Co-op shoppers for years but could use a little new pizazz. Look for your favorite vegan bundt cakes drizzled with new icings and glazes — chocolate cake with peanut butter glaze, orange cake with zesty citrus icing, and even a brand-new wheat-free (but not vegan) lemon poppy bundt cake!
For you hazelnut coffee lovers out there, be sure to try our new mousse cup — mocha mousse topped with hazelnut whipped cream and garnished with toasted nuts! We're also working on new flavors of savory scones using local produce and cheeses, coming soon to enhance your breakfast! And downtown shoppers will be excited to find that our vegan donuts are now available at the DeWitt location as well — look for them Thursday afternoons!

|GreenStar's Bakery Expands Wheat-Free Offerings|
By Kristie Snyder,
You know a diet is popular when a Google search returns over 12 million results, as it does for "gluten free diet." Compare that with "vegan diet," which turns up a paltry 2.6 million. It's clear that people are increasingly avoiding wheat products and gluten, the stretchy protein found in wheat and many of its relatives. Many who avoid gluten have been diagnosed with celiac disease, in which gluten consumption can cause intestinal inflammation and damage the lining of the intestines. Others experience wheat allergies or intolerances, which can lead to a host of symptoms.
Ten years ago, finding gluten- or wheat-free baked goods could be a real challenge, and finding ones that tasted good proved even more difficult. But a trip to GreenStar's bakery case today yields over two dozen delicious wheat- or gluten-free options.
