Foodies, Meet Clafoutis

Pastry Chef

Did someone say vegan donuts? Why yes. We'll have them in the pastry case this month, along with clafoutis and fall desserts.

We're still testing varieties as of press time, but we can tell you that you'll find them in the pastry area in the Deli. We're also working on individual clafoutis. Need a definition? They're French custard tarts, simple and delicious, and we've made them wheat-free to make the joy accessible to more people!

Can you believe fall has crept up on us? Put on your cardigan and look for your favorite cool-weather desserts, to be appearing in the cases soon: Apple Crisp, Autumn Spice Parfait, and Pumpkin Tiramisu in the grab-and-go; Pumpkin Squares, Apple Spice cupcakes, and Pumpkin Cranberry Pecan cookies, too. If you've having trouble letting summer go, these should help! We're also bringing back a classic cookie, Maple Lace, sweetened only with local maple syrup, and a new Dark Chocolate Cherry cookie as well.

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.
