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.
Tasting Notes for Little Northern Bakehouse
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 very pleasant flavor! Mild warm cinnamon notes, a very light sweetness, and the perfect amount of plump raisins. The texture is indeed soft and delicious without toasting. There’s 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. The flavor is 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, this loaf had a slightly heartier vibe. Yet, it still had a light, white bread feel. I enjoyed the flavor, which was a little warmer than the Millet & Chia.
Price: $7.99 per loaf
