Liberation Bakery

October 15, 2017

If you want a healthier dessert option, Liberation Bakery offers gluten-free, paleo, raw, and vegan desserts. I see them every Sunday at the Capitol Hill Farmer’s Market, and last weekend I decided to give them a try (even though I am not the kind of person to seek out a healthier dessert option).

They have everything from vegan “cheesecake,” to raw chocolate, to gluten-free vegan chocolate chip cookies. Not my usual cup of tea, but I got a small sampling.

On the left is a coconut truffle, with a layer of pretty intense chocolate. The middle bite is a coconut bliss ball – my favorite of the three. On the right is a peanut butter cup, which could have used a little more sugar (natural of course). If you’re in the mood to be healthy, don’t read this blog. But do get treats from Liberation Bakery.


Cinnamon Works

September 4, 2012

So many Pike’s Place Market bakeries… what’s a girl to do? (Try them all. This is the logical conclusion). On a recent trip to the Market, I stopped by Cinnamon Works for the first time.

It’s one of those places that I’d walked by dozens of times, never quite tempted enough to sample the wares (too much focus on gluten-free for my taste).  People say their gluten-free cinnamon buns are very good, but I just can’t imagine life without flour. I selected a regular chocolate chip cookie and an oatmeal raisin cookie.

To tell the truth, I found both to be fine but unremarkable. The chocolate chip cookie was too crackly and thin, and the oatmeal raisin cookie was too dense. People have given this place pretty good reviews on Yelp, so I imagine I’ll try some different goods next time and be more impressed.
