I decided to pack my family in the car and take a drive over the bridge to check them out. There is seating available inside of the bakery, so we were able to sit down and enjoy our treats along with a cup of tea and other drinks. They also offer a variety of teas, coffee, juice boxes, bottled water and sodas with agave nectar.
The bakery is owned and operated by Allison Lubert and Heather Esposito. Heather is also a natural gourmet chef and they are both certified holistic health counselors. They opened Sweet Freedom in January of 2010 and have been serving very happy customers ever since. They offer a variety of cupcakes, muffins, donuts, cookies, loaves, and classic favorites such as brownies, blondies, macaroons, oat crumble and magic bars. There are some seasonal selections, as well as some new and changing items that are not listed online. All of the ingredients are clearly displayed with each selection.
During our visit, we tried a chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting, chocolate donut with chocolate frosting, ginger snap cookie (a seasonal option), carrot cupcake with vanilla frosting, "magic bar" and vanilla crumb cake with chocolate ganache (which is not listed on their website). We savored every bite of every treat. They were all absolutely delicious. What's more, they are free of dairy, egg, wheat, gluten, soy, peanuts, tree nuts (with the exception of coconut), and even refined sugars. They use a variety of gluten-free flours, such as rice, garbanzo, fava, tapioca and sorghum, and they use natural, unprocessed low-glycemic sweeteners such as coconut sugar, agave nectar, and maple syrup in lieu of refined sugars.
