We Like it Raw

wheat-free-dessertsWe're working on new vegan, raw, and wheat-free recipes. Try new peanut- or coconut-filled hearts, or Sesame Power Bars.

Here in the Bakehouse, we've been working on a few new things to address everyone's needs and tastebuds. We're exploring some new directions, with a focus on developing more vegan and wheat-free recipes and also working more with raw ingredients. You may have already tried the peanut or coconut-filled hearts we made for Valentine's Day. Concocted with very few ingredients (all raw with the exception of the cocoa powder!), and sweetened with agave syrup, they're super healthy for being so decadent and delicious. We've also been making Sesame Power Bars, which are packed full of nutrition — sesame and chia seeds, dried cherries, flax meal, and tahini, sweetened with brown-rice syrup. Find them in the cookie case. In a slightly more traditional vein, we're introducing another delicious new item: Phoebe's Thai Peanut Butter Cookie — sweet and spicy. You'll have to try it to believe how good it is!

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.
