    White Lion Bakery - we make grain-free breads, crackers, cakes and cookies!

    Hi everyone,

    My partner and I started a grain-free, refined sugar free bakery here in Brookline, MA earlier this year and so far we're doing great and are looking for a storefront to take our baking to the next level. We make paleo breads, crackers and some sweeter paleo-friendly items such as birthday cakes, cookies and cupcakes. Check us out at White Lion Gluten-Free Baking Company, Brookline Massachusetts | Home - White Lion Gluten-Free Baking Company, Brookline Massachusetts: Tasty Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Low-Carb Baked Cookies, Cakes, Biscuits and Breads! and let us know what you think. We ship across the entire US!

    Best,

    Elena and John

    Gluten-free crap is still crap. Sorry. Your product line isn't paleo. It's made from highly processed ingredients.

    It reminds me of some friends who went ape over organic pop-tarts. "These are healthy!" C'mon, they're freaking pop-tarts.

    they said grain free, not just gluten free. if you go to their website they tell you they use almond flour in their recipes. almond flour is paleo. also they list the ingrediants to all their products and everything i looked at was in fact very paleo

    i think its a pretty neat idea, hopefully more places like this will open

    I won't eat it. Coconut flour either. Both are too highly processed. Besides, they're pretty much only used to make junky foods. You want almonds, eat some nuts. The second you break the integrity of a nut, it starts turning rancid.

    Hey Gordo,

    I respect your personal eating style however almond flour is just ground almonds. We go through so much of it that it never gets rancid - and we store it in the fridge. Sure we make a few 'treats' because we cater to the gluten-free crowd too but all of our buns fit the guidelines of what Mark promotes in his books. We make substitutions for our paleo customers eg swapping the agave/honey mix we use to sweeten our sweeter offerrings with straight honey and we sub coconut oil for the grassfed butter we use upon request.

    I used to eat ground flax seed. When I traveled I'd keep a bag ready-ground in the cooler. It usually started to smell awful within a week. That's because PUFAs oxidize so easily once the integrity of the seed is broken. PUFAs also react easily with sugar. So let's take some partially oxidized PUFAs, add sugar, and heat the mess up. What does AGE stand for again? The ingredients may all be primal, but the resulting product is not, at least in my book. Besides, the last thing I need is to get used to eating cookies and pastries again. Crackers, OK, I could get behind the occasional cracker strictly as a convenience, but I've been doing just fine without them.

    Again, if you store almond flour in the freezer like we do it does not get rancid. See our biscuits, buns and crackers. They are primal/paleo. We like to offer our guests crackers when they stop by.

    So when you 'cheat' what do you choose? And don't tell me that you never cheat :-)

    I can't count the times I've been served rancid nuts or bought nuts from healthy stores when thet are aleady rancid. Our almond flour is never rancid - I'm picky so make sure of that.

    Hi Rita Rose - we ship at a very reasonable price. See our website (which I won't list here because I don't want to be accused of spam).

    Best,
