As an editor, I get samples in the mail all the time. It’s impossible to write about everything, so I only cover the stuff that’s really delish. Enter Canyon Bakehouse’s Gluten-Free Raisin Bread, the latest foodstuff to arrive in my mail.
We’ve been in a breakfast rut, so I was psyched to try something new. I toasted a few slices of bread with a little cream cheese for breakfast yesterday since Mason finally woke up fever-free. No sense having him try something when he’s sick and not in the mood to eat.
The bread was moist and soft, not dry and crumbly like so many GF baked goods. And it wasn’t greasy either (some bakers put extra fat into their breads to try to combat the dryness). Toasted, it was chewy with delicious sweetness from the cinnamon and raisins. I absolutely loved every bite–and so did Mason. It was one of the rare times that I wasn’t crawling around his highchair picking up scraps of whatever he was eating after the meal was over. Bug isn’t gluten-free, but he eats a lot of GF products since I am–and he definitely knows what he likes!
You can pick up a loaf at Whole Foods, or order it online, if you’d like to try it. We’ll definitely be stocking up on it in our household.
