Unless you have been living under a rock, then you have surely heard of the Gluten-Free and Vegan lifestyles that many people are adopting for a healthier diet. While the severity of food allergies can vary from person to person, more and more restaurants and bakeries are striving to accommodate the growing need for ingredient-conscious consumers. Whether you’re a farmed veteran in the gluten free department, or you’re solely looking for an excuse to eat dessert that you can feel better about, A Better Choice Bakery could just be the right choice for you!
When I went gluten-free over a year ago due to a developed food allergy, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to satisfy my aching sweet tooth and love for all things pastry. Luckily, there are a multitude of alternative baking ingredients that can be used to produce delectable breads and scrumptious cupcakes that are free of any gluten, dairy, or animal proteins that can aggravate an allergy. A Better Choice Bakery never uses food dyes nor do they bake with any GMO ingredients to produce their baked goods, making their products a no-brainer for a healthier treat. Items include sweet or savory breads, pizza crusts, cookies, brownies, cupcakes, and pies (…oh my!).
Their store front resides in historic downtown Brunswick, where they also participate in the local farmers market which provides excellent locally grown produce for all who stop by. You can also find A Better Choice Bakery items at The Frederick Coffee Company, Black Dog Coffee Company, Super Foods, Loco Joe’s and The Common Market. Check out their menu and upcoming farmers market events online or on their Facebook page- A Better Choice Bakery.
