Unrefined Bakery: A Gluten-, Soy-, and GMO-Free Bakery Near You

August 23, 2016 8:01 am

Just because you want to indulge doesn't mean you have to totally undo a day of healthy eating, at least according to the team at Unrefined Bakery. They enlist healthier versions of traditional ingredients to make their baked goods, including unrefined sugars and complex carbs, healthy fats, and other components. What they leave out is just as unusual; the bakers never use gluten, soy, preservatives, or GMOs.

From bread to FoodBars—Unrefined Bakery's version of the grab-and-go protein bar—everything boasts whole, healthy ingredients. The FoodBars balance protein, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates to create a filling snack designed to power you through your afternoon slump, not just quiet hunger pangs for 30 minutes. So don't feel guilty about grabbing a slice of banana-walnut bread or indulging in a fudge brownie. You can rest assured that the kitchen team used much healthier ingredients than the stuff in store-bought versions.
