Gluten-Free Baked Goods: The Girl Scouts are now offering gluten free cookies but I doubt they're going to measure up to Breakaway Bakery's Lil Mint Scoutie, a gluten free thin mint-like disc of deliciousness. And that's not the only yummy treat at this tiny little bakery on Pico Boulevard. You'll find cupcakes, bread, a variety of cookies and muffins and Jewish specialties like rugalach, babka and mandel bread. Some vegan, some not. They also sell frozen batters and dough for bake-at-home muffins, cookies, pancakes and brownies. Owner Janice Lavine was recently featured on oprah.com sharing some of her recipes and is working on developing products that she hopes will be available at grocery stores in the future. Everything made here is kosher and free of gluten, dairy, casein, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, gums, preservatives, trans fats and GMOs and is certified organic!
Local Expert Wendy O'Dea Says:
Gluten-Free Baked Goods: "Do not leave the premises without trying a Lil Mint Scoutie. Unless you don't like chocolate. Or mint. Or life in general."
Best for Gluten-Free Baked Goods Because: Breakaway Bakery is one of the first entirely gluten free bakeries that has gone out of its way to make baked goods available to everyone.
