Welcome the Tropical Taste of Coconut!

It was just yesterday when we said good-bye to two of our favorites recipes, Chocolate Almond Scones and the Honey Carrot Pineapple Muffins. Well, even though they will be missed, we are happy to announce the return of Coconut Scones!

These scones have a copious amount of large organic coconut flakes. They are mixed in the dough with coconut extract. Then the scones are rolled in coconut flakes before they are baked, and the exposed flakes get lightly toasted. We then drizzle a vanilla-coconut icing over the top. Coconut times three: inside, outside and in the glazing. They are perfectly decadent!

Try one while they are available in February!

Last Day—Honey Carrot Pineapple Muffin and Chocolate Almond Scone

Two of our personal favorites take a bow in the bakery on Tuesday.

Honey Carrot Pineapple Muffin sweetened with honey, not refined sugar, it is a special treat! Also leaving us at the end of January is the Chocolate Almond Scone. This is a recipe we brought back during January after an extended period of "recipe retirement."

Stop in and try them before they are gone. We think of both as a great way to say, "Hello!" to the morning—now we'll enjoy them until they "sunset" on Tuesday!

Healthy Eating Tips–A Reminder

This is an article we posted a while ago. We thought it might be worth a reminder.

Bread is an important part of a healthy diet. It’s something that most of us consume daily as a part of our meals. We bake a great variety of breads. You can find many in the marketplace with varying levels of nutritional value. We aim for healthy, tasty and traditional in our recipes. Please review our nutritional information so you can enjoy the Breadsmith breads that best align with your health goals.

Here are some additional notes about nutrition, diet and health that you may enjoy:

What does that mean for you? Our products do not contain any dairy ingredients. For the few products that contain an oil ingredient, we use non-GMO canola oil or a specialized nonhydrogenated margarine that contains no artificial trans fat. Most of our products contain 2 percent or less of your daily value of fat.

We choose organic ingredients we are confident meet our goals and standards. Organic eggs from Larry Schultz Farms is one example. We chose local honey over organic honey sources because we are more confident in the honey cared for by local farmers. We examine each ingredient we use and look for the best possible choice. This is an ongoing part of our work.

It is smart to compare portion (what you eat) with serving size. But keep in mind that serving size is not a recommendation of what you should eat; it is a standardized way to compare similar foods with each other. Considering portion and serving size side by side allows you to calculate the nutrition you actually consume. This helps to be more aware of what you eat and therefore consume more of what’s healthy and less of what’s not.
For example, if you have a sandwich (one portion) with two slices (two servings) of Breadsmith 100% Whole Wheat, you accounted for two of your grain servings for the day. And when you’re in the mood for something sweet, that Mini Cinnamon Bun is not only cute, but it is also a good way to not overindulge.

Breadsmith breads are made in a facility with nuts, eggs, wheat and soy milk. Review the Breadsmith Nutrition Guide for detailed information.

Gluten is a type of protein that appears primarily in wheat, rye and barley. Some individuals have a gluten free diet in order to treat celiac disease. Others go gluten-free because of allergies or dietary choice. A gluten free diet is not necessary for most people.
It is difficult to bake high quality, consistently delicious breads that are 100 percent free of gluten. After significant research and inquiry, Breadsmith has determined a fully separate bakery would be the best way for our Minnetonka, Edina and St. Paul bakeries to serve gluten free breads. At this time there are no plans to open a separate location for this purpose.
