Unrefined Bakery: Baked Goods You Can Feel Good About

April 24, 2017 3:00 pm

True to its name, Unrefined Bakery only offers baked goods that are crafted without any refined sugars. In fact, its bakers opt for all-natural, organic, gluten-free, and soy-free ingredients exclusively because they want to provide healthier versions of your favorite sweets. To this end, they also enlist healthy fats and complex carbs whenever possible, and they skip preservatives and GMOs.

This means that you can indulge at Unrefined Bakery without abandoning your healthy lifestyle. For instance, savor a slice of the banana bread, made with a mix of mostly whole-grain flours, bananas, turbinado sugar, yogurt, and other natural ingredients. If you opt for the egg-free and dairy-free version, bakers swap the eggs for flaxseed and canola oil and yogurt for applesauce. You can expect the same types of whole ingredients in the bakery's cookies, cupcakes, muffins, and loaves of bread, so be sure to try all that this local bakery has to offer!
