raspberry-chiaA vegan, wheat-free, sugar-free, AND raw dessert? Yep, we made one, Raspberry Chia Seed Pudding, available now!

Here we are, in the heart of winter. The days are short, the nights are cold, and it's the perfect time of year to cuddle up with some of our made-from-scratch desserts. We have a few exciting new things coming your way! The first are Earl Grey and Lemon cupcakes, featuring Earl Grey tea-infused cupcakes with our decadent lemon Swiss buttercream. We'll be selling them in two-packs in the dessert grab-and-go, so there's one for you and one to share! Also available in the grab-and-go cooler is our new Raspberry Chia Seed Pudding. We're especially excited about this because it's the first product we have offered that is vegan, wheat-free, sugar-free, and raw! It's also pretty darn delicious. Also be on the lookout for a few new types of vegan breakfast pastries. Look for Bear Claws and Pinwheels, and — pssst — there are even danishes in the works!

GreenStar's Bakery Expands Wheat-Free Offerings

By Kristie Snyder,

wheat-free-dessertsYou 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.
