Julia's Kitchen

Nourish your body, feed your soul.

The Bakery February 19, 2012

I believe that all food should nourish us, even when it’s a treat. I start with organic whole foods, then mindfully prepare them to create unique, delicious treats that satisfy every sense and leave you feeling great. I believe in balance, so use sweeteners with what I think is just the right loving touch. Of course, this is subjective.

Here are a few of the things that make Julia’s Kitchen’s bakery different…

  • We offer many amazing flourless options, made from sprouted grains. Our flourless muffins, breads, and cinnamon rolls have a beautiful, moist texture and delicate taste.
  • When we do use flour, we first sprout the grains, then dry and grind them ourselves so we can provide you with the freshest, most nourishing baked goods possible.
  • We have a full line of raw treats, many of which are made solely from sprouted nuts, fruits, and spices.
  • We use homemade nut milks, freshly made from sprouted organic nuts and chia seeds.
  • We use organic ingredients, healthy unrefined olive, and coconut oils, and low-impact or whole food sweeteners like dates, coconut sugar, and brown rice syrup.
  • Everything we make, our entire kitchen and bakery, is gluten free. It’s also vegan. Don’t let this throw you off though, it’s all delicious. It may or may not be a little different than what you’ve eaten before, but variety is the spice of life!

Most importantly, we are happy bakers and chefs. We love what we do. We often listen to mantra in the kitchen. We pour our love into everything we make. We are honored to make food for you and we are proud to serve it with the knowledge that it is truly nourishing.

I love to play around with new recipes, so here is just an example of what is currently on offer:

LIGHTLY SWEETENED SPROUTED MUFFINS, ROULADES, AND 6-LAYER TORTES Sprouted grains, dates, coconut sugar (optional for some flavors, coconut oil, chia seeds, spices and extracts depending on flavor, applesauce, apple cider vinegar, and leavenings combine to make the most delicious things!

    Thanks, Julia! I am still enjoying the bread I bought Wednesday, and LOVING the gluten-free “granola” that has no oats, no corn, and makes my innards happy, not gripey!! Love the adaba cookies (that the granola’s made from), too.

    Hi! Just wanted to say that we just came in today for the first time, and I am in love. Everything was so delicious and made me feel great. We had the burger (favorite) and the kale chips are divine!! We even got 2 more orders to go. OH, also the chocolate chip cookies are yummy. Can’t wait to come back and try everything else! I’m also very much looking forward to you offering more cooking classes. Thanks!
