Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-Free Bread includes Loaves, Buns, and Bagels

84

According to the rumors, Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-Free Bread has such an amazing texture that it doesn’t need to be toasted. Needless to say, I was eager to try this allergy-friendly line out, and see if it really was true. This seems like a big feat for bread that’s not only made without gluten, but also dairy, nuts, and soy!

Tasting Notes for Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-Free Bread  Loaves, Buns, and Bagels

I had to freeze most of our Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-Free Bread when it landed because I’d ordered several different varieties. So technically, we didn’t get to try it completely un-toasted. But I only lightly heated it and found the texture quite appealing and very, dare I say, bread like. It was tender rather than chewy, while being soft and crisp in all the right spots. When it cooled fully, there was just a hint of that gummy gluten-free consistency, but not enough to be very noticeable when used for sandwiches or slathered with a spread.

When I tried these products, Canyon Bakehouse was just beginning to experiment with stay-fresh packaging. They now offer a few loaves with this packaging, which keeps the bread fresh for up to 90 days before opening. If you choose a loaves without the fancy packaging, don’t worry, they freeze well!

I’ve included full details and tasting notes below for the Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-Free Bread varieties that we tried, followed by a quick list of the other varieties available. Please do leave your own rating and review below if you try any of them.

Mountain White (pictured above)

I’m a whole grain fan, but this loaf was impressive right out of the shoot. It made great sandwiches, and had a pleasant, mild flavor that was just rich enough and slightly rustic. Tony agreed that it was a hands down winner.

7-Grain

From the name, I had expected this to be my hands down favorite, but the flavor was rather flat. It also had slight bitter after-notes. It wasn’t bad, but didn’t have the natural, nutty sweetness I usually enjoy with whole grains.

Deli Rye

To preface, I do not like rye bread. And as it turns out, I don’t really like caraway seeds, which are the prominent spice used hear to give it that authentic taste. If you like rye, then this could be your gluten-free, dairy-free holy grail for making Reubens.

Cinnamon Raisin

Due to the higher moisture content in this sweeter, more indulgent loaf, it did have a little more of that slightly chewy gluten-free bread texture. It was fairly good overall, but I felt like it needed a touch more salt to bring out the cinnamon and savory notes rather than letting the raisins carry so much of the flavor burden.

Plain Bagels (pictured below)

These things are crazy monsters! They’re jumbo sized, with an appearance, texture and taste that is more akin to crusty French bread than traditional bagels. They’re hearty on the outside with a perfectly chewy middle and pleasant bread-y flavor. Different, yet very easy to like. My only qualm was how they were sliced too close to the tops. The bottoms were so thick that they wouldn’t fit in my toaster! I would prefer that this Canyon Bakehouse gluten-free bread product was sold un-sliced, instead.

Cinnamon Raisin Bagels

These are big, like the Plain, but have a lightly sweet vibe. They offer whole grain flavor with no bitterness and generous amounts of plump raisins. We enjoyed the nice bagel “chew,” which was a bit more chewy than wheat-based bagels. That said, they are definitely best when toasted.

Blueberry Bagels

This flavor was the sweetest of the bunch, but not sugary, with generous bites of tender, sweet blueberries. It had that same nice bagel chew and was delicious with dairy-free cream cheese alternative. In fact, it was a bit of a treat!

Hamburger Buns

On the contrary to the bagels, these buns are a bit small. They’re certainly more than tall enough, but our burgers spilled over on all sides of these girdled buns. They were okay, not quite as tasty as the Mountain White and Bagels, but it would be great if they were allowed to fatten up a bit, spreading, rather than rising so high. Tony said he still preferred my homemade dairy-free, gluten-free buns, but if the sizing was fixed on these buns, they would be a whole lot easier than homemade when we get a random burger craving.

Plain bagel is great but I am reacting to it.

Looking to see if anyone else is reacting to the bagel. Every time I eat one I get canker sores in my mouth and pimples in my rear end just as I do when I eat oats. Ate them over three occasions and the same happen. Sad that I can’t no longer eat them because they are good bagels.

Miguel Rosado

Response from Go Dairy Free

They do use certified gluten-free oats in some products and in their facilities -> https://canyonglutenfree.com/stories/update-on-oats-and-country-white-recipe-change/ – but the bagels appear to be oat-free. You might want to reach out to the company on this issue.

Not sure still testing it but have had a reaction

I love this bread. Tried 3 types of it so far, but about a week into eating it, I started to get sick and not feeling well all over especially my stomach. I had to stop eating it and 2 days after stopping, starting to feel better. Now I will wait a couple more days and start back eating it to see if it’s the bread. I have not added anything other new items to my diet except for this. Hoping it is not it.

The first “bagel” in the vacuumed sealed pouch was actually a hockey puck disguised as a bagel. That’s how stale it was. The quality control for slicing was also terrible!! Not one bagel was sliced even close to in the middle. I had to perform a little “surgery” before it was even usable. I’ll NEVER purchase your product again. “Once bitten…twice shy.”

OMG< are you kidding me???I've been eating gluten products and just recently decided to try gluten free along with my new, eating 6 times a day small portions, and I COULD NOT believe the flavor when I lightly toast the 7 grain bread, the taste was AWESOME, less filling (gladly), and so satisfying! I was shocked how small the loaf was, but it makes better health sense! We all need to start eating smaller and more often and balanced. It is a little pricey, if they could bring it down a bit, I would buy more often. Thank you Canyon, your my new best friend!!!!

The best bread I’ve found so far! My favorite is the Deli Rye and then 7-grain.

I buy Deli Rye and Mountain White and both are wonderful–I couldn’t ask for better. The Deli Rye satisfies my taste buds with its caraway flavor; I toast it and lightly butter it. I’m looking forward to trying some cream cheese and lox on it. The Mountain White is just like a rustic, homemade white bread. So far I’ve used it in place of a burger bun–just delicious. My fussy husband even loves it.

We were dazzled by the perfect bread-like taste and texture of the Mountain White, and pleasantly intrigued with the Plain Bagels, that were more like a good crusty French bread than the typical breakfast tradition. The others were good, with pluses and minuses as noted in our full review here.

  1. I would try the bagels first. I’ve generally gotten used to eating lettuce wraps because I’ve just not been a fan of most breads. I haven’t found canyon house sold by my house but if it’s good I’d buy some when I get to a store that sells it.

    • It might be sold in the freezer section – I’ve seen the GF breads both sold fresh and frozen. Those bagels would make an awesome sandwich!

  2. Would love to try the cin/raisin bread. I’ve had the bagels, they are not traditional bagels, but pretty tasty.

  3. I love the 7 grain bread, it’s my favorite and I always have it stocked in my freezer. I’ve also tried the bagels and like those too, but agree about the slicing placement. 🙂 I’ve never tried their hamburger buns, I don’t think my grocer stocks them. I’ll have to look into that. Thanks for the review! It’s always fun to see what’s available!

    • I’ve tried the 7 grain as well- it is to date my favorite gluten free bread of all brands. I heard the angels sing when I tried it – I was getting pretty discouraged and sad after trying other brands. I can’t wait to venture out and try others by Canyon Bakehouse.

  4. I would love to try the Deli Rye! I miss a nice piece of toasted rye for a sandwich.

  5. I buy the 7 grain and love it!! It’s never dry like other gluten free breads can be. I am excited to see they have bagels and will be on the lookout for them now!

    • Thank you for mentioning this Kate. It was hard for me to comment on the dryness since I had the bread from frozen, but it definitely didn’t seem as dry as many other GF brands.

  6. Kelly Payton on

    I want to sink my teeth into a piled high sandwich with all the fixings!!

  7. I have never heard of this brand, but would love to try! I miss my sandwiches!

  8. I have never had an opportunity to try Canyon Bakehouse products as of yet, but the mountain white looks delicious! I’d love to try their products out. Thanks for sharing this!

  9. Those look amazing, and not just for gluten-free bread! I would really love to try the bagels… I have yet to meet a GF bagel that truly satisfied my cravings.

  10. I want to try the hamburger buns but the Mountain White bread looks really good too

  11. These look really good, I’d love to see some vegan versions – so many GF breads have eggs. They look better than many GF breads I’ve seen!

  12. Wow–these really do look and sound amazing! My hubby has been eating gluten-free breads lately and I bet he’d love any one of these. How lucky are you to be able to sample them all!

  13. I have tried the 7grain and liked it. (Even my very picky gluten eating husband eats it, which says a lot.) However, after reading your review I am anxious to try the mountain white and the bagels!
