You can have Celiac disease or non-Celiac gluten sensitivity, be allergic to eggs or dairy, choose to avoid wheat, gluten, dairy and animal products in your diet, or “normal”, a.k.a. you simply love a good cookie! Whatever the reason you are learning about Zen Cat Bakery – we welcome you and your questions.
Know that your health is important to us too!
When we can, we select products that are organic and processed minimally. We choose to bake with more healthful sweeteners – organic evaporated cane juice (yes, this is sugar, but less processed than white sugar), dates, agave nectar and maple syrup. We use unsweetened dark cocoa powder and chocolate chips that are very tasty and dairy free. When a recipe calls for dried fruit, its fruit without preservatives or artificial sweeteners. Fruits and fruit juices are organic, which we think are better tasting than conventional. The specialty flours we use are nutritious and certified gluten-free. We use sorghum, millet, brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa, tapioca flours in our recipes. We do use nuts and seeds – almonds, pecans, walnuts and pepitas (pumpkin seeds) – in some of our desserts and RAW foods. Zen Cat loves almond and coconut flours and extra-virgin organic coconut oil and uses them in some cookies and frostings, so please avoid these items if you have these types of allergies. Ingredients are not listed, so talk to us about any special requests or restrictions you have.
