Fall Desserts

Apples-and-spices-smComforting desserts are back — think apples, spices, and maple and caramel flavors. Read on for donut news!

It's hard to believe, but it's getting to be the time of year when putting on a thick, wooly sweater and curling up with a warming dessert sounds nice again. Fortunately, we're already prepared for this shift in the seasons! Pear Ginger Crisp and Apple Crisp will be appearing on the shelves again — these traditional favorites are made with local fruit whenever possible. Apple Spice Bundt Cakes with Chai Glaze will also be making a return to the dessert case, and look for Maple Cupcakes, and Caramel Apple Cake as well — any of these would be a hit at your first autumn potluck! We're also excited to announce that the vegan donuts will be arriving more frequently in the stores — on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays ---— and will be coming over first thing in the morning to accompany our other delicious breakfast selections. Grab one before they're gone!

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.
