Summary:

Produced in a gluten-free facility that's also free of nuts and dairy, the price on this bread may be a little high, but they go above and beyond in accommodating special diet needs with "traditional" taste and texture. Each slice holds true to the company's claim that it doesn't require toasting to be enjoyed.

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.

    I happened upon this brand at our new Fresh Thyme a few weeks ago but now it’s gone. I must go back to find someone in the know because all of the gluten free breads are amazing.

  2. Ever since accidentally getting shockingly delicious gluten-free toast while traveling and eating out, I’ve been mildly obsessed with it. This looks like a fabulous option to try, especially the seeded loaf.
