About Me

Welcome to my blog - my ramblings about trying to find healthy, affordable gluten free food in St. John's, NL.
Despite being gluten free, I love to try new products and am always interested to hear about new places to eat.
I try to help the environment and purchase organic products where possible.

Enjoy :)

Organic Works Bakery Review



Over the summer I stumbled upon an Organic, gluten free store in LondonOntario – Organic Works Bakery. I was excited because 1. I found a new gluten free source for breads and sweets, and 2. It is made with organic ingredients! Something you can’t find much around here.

The company was really friendly, and after my first shipment via CanPar was too slow to arrive, they re-shipped via UPS and it was here the next day! The whole kitchen smelled wonderful thanks to my 2 boxes of goodies J

This bakery is unique in the types of breads and baked goods that they sell. You can check out their website here, but some highlights include Brown Rice and Garlic Bread, Focaccia buns, Quinoa and Honey bread, Buckwheat, Oat and Flax bread and Cinnamon Raisin bread. Their sweets include cinnamon buns, oatmeal raisin cookies and a sugar free date, apricot and hemp protein powder cookie.

So far I’ve tried the Brown Rice and Garlic Bread, the Cinnamon Raisin bread and the sugar free cookies.
 
It is so delicious! The breads are so full of flavor and the Brown Rice and Garlic Bread makes a deadly avocado and tomato sandwich! (see picture on left). You can eat the bread toasted or not, and it stays together J

The cookies are have a unique taste, are not sweet, but do provide a dessert feel to them, while still being healthy!

The breads can be purchased whole, thick sliced or thin sliced. I choose the thin slice option and they were pretty standard size for GF bread. Also, pre-sliced makes for easy access out of the freezer!

This is such a great company, full flavored organic food that’s gluten free – I’m not sure how you can beat that!

PS They have an actual store in LondonON if you happen to live close by!

Until then I may have to do a little sampling, via shipping, and pick out some favs.... As always, thanks for the post!

  2. Their bread is so yummy! - it actually has a flavour and taste! I tried the Buckwheat and Chia last night - excellent as well. Great sandwich bread! :D
    Be sure to call if you do order to ensure they will ship to you using UPS!
