weeter than bread, lighter than cake, brioche makes an elegant, understated breakfast or lunch.
Our classic brioche with more cinnamon butter rolled into it, baked on yet another layer of brown sugar butter until perfectly caramelized.
Light coffee cake packed with blueberries and a light, streusel topping. We hope that Grandma is proud of us.
These are so delicious that we don't even need to make a non-vegan muffin. Hearty as opposed to cakey; just sweet enough to brighten your morning, but healthy enough to feed your brain and body until lunch.
Whole cream vs. half and half: the age old scone question. We've handled it with equanimity-both, of course. Still cutting in the sweet cream butter in by hand every night on the wooden tables. We'll go to any lengths to get the light and flakey scone that would make the Irish proud.
Cinnamon swirled vegan goodness in every bite.
Big, slightly cakey and generously endowed with only the best callebaut chocolate chunks. No mere chocolate chips; only chunks will do.
Organic peanut butter and our not-so-secret ingredient: a touch of coffee. Big, chewy, ever-so-slightly doughy in the middle. It's hard to make your way through a whole one. Then again, it's hard not to.
6' tall men have been known to getting misty-eyed when we run out of these avalon favorites. Our trademark cookies are big, soft and chewy, made with plump raisins, rolled organic oats and real butter. Don't worry, we bake extra now, so we there's always plenty. Well, almost always.
It's that far-away look in the eye when customers stop us on the street; it's the moment of reverant silence when they are handed across the counter. A smaller, chewier chocolate chunk cookie with course sea salt sprinkled on top. Overall avalon staff favorite.
Light and crispy, this an uncomplicated cookie that needs neither bells nor whistles. Ingredients:
Why? Because this cookie is so good that it would be unfair to deprive our vegan friends. A vegan oatmeal cookie with lots of dried fruit and seeds in it to get you down the trail.
This cookie brings out the best in both organic peanut butter and callebaut chocolate. Sort of a fancy way to eat peanut butter out of the jar with chocolate chips sprinkled on top. We're not the only ones who do that late at night, are we.
In the brownie world, there are two schools of thought: cakey and fudgy. Our brownies are old school caky, with plenty of moist callebaut chocolate for depth and moistness. These brownies are as big and over-stated as amazons: nothing subtle about them. Also available with espresso or peanut butter (pushing it dangerously close to the baked-good-meets-candy-school).
No wheat, no refined sugar, no dairy. How could they taste so good? The filling is merely soaked dates, raisins and cinnamon, mixed into a puree. The crust: oats and oat flour, with a little brown rice syrup, pure maple syrup and vegan shortening to bind it. The result: a super-yummy, super-healthy sweet treat that can sustain you through a long bike ride, a vigorous hike or a busy day in the city.
The gooiest cross of a candy bar and a cookie, this bar is made with coconut, chocolate chips, walnuts, and our homemade graham cracker.
Let's just be clear: this is not dried-out, tasteless body fuel that you force down while backpacking. Moist and positively addictive, these will keep you going for hours. Peanut butter, organic seeds and some chocolate chips thrown in because we care about your soul too. Ann's favorite before a long bike ride in the d.
We have discovered that great chocolate can be even better without dairy products to compete for flavor. This super-moist chocolate cake is has a wonderfully clean, chocolate taste without being heavy and sicky-sweet.
As much carrot as cake, this is a symphony of textures and flavor: crunchy walnuts, juicy raisins, hearty carrots. Please don't call this a vegan carrot cake. It's a carrot cake that just happens to be vegan.
Dense, moist, and over the top chocolaty, this shareable dessert is perfect for the most serious of chocolate lovers.
