Under the same parent company as Silver Hills Bakery Sprouted Bread, Little Northern Bakehouse focuses exclusively on gluten-free bread, which they claim that it doesn’t need toasting!
Positioned in British Columbia, but distributed in both the U.S. and Canada, Little Northern Bakehouse offers a handful of gluten-free loaf varieties plus hamburger buns. To date, I’ve only tried their three flagship breads, but the buns are reportedly made with the same bread as the Millet & Chia (details below).
Cinnamon & Raisin – This has a pleasant flavor with mild warm cinnamon notes, a very light sweetness, and the perfect amount of plump raisins. The texture is indeed soft and delicious without toasting, with only a slight telltale hint in the texture that it isn’t wheat (seems like a hint of brown rice flour). I’ve always liked untoasted bread best, so this is a real treat! That said, when toasted, it’s spot on for texture and the warm cinnamon notes burst just a little more when heated.
Millet & Chia – This is very much like “normal” bread, but with its own mild flavor flair that’s slightly bitter, gently sweet, and overall fairly neutral. The nice texture of the Cinnamon & Raisin is duplicated in this flavor.
Seeds & Grains – Dotted with all types of little grains and seeds for interest (including whole sunflower seeds), this loaf had a slightly heartier vibe, but still a light, white bread feel. I enjoyed the flavor, which was a little warmer than the Millet & Chia.
