For many of us, we don’t have to think twice about ordering off a menu or choosing a treat from behind the bakery counter. We’re able to eat what we want, when we want, without giving it too much thought. But not everyone is so lucky. A lot of people have food allergies or sensitivities that force them to avoid certain foods. Lately it seems there’s been a lot in the news and now on grocery shelves about gluten-free products because many people are following gluten-free diets. Some because it’s medically necessary, others by choice. Gluten is a grain protein found in many breads, cereals and pastas. Some people have trouble processing this, and eating gluten causes a slew of digestive problems.
We wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on any treats here at Ashley’s Pastries, so, in case you didn’t know, we offer multiple products gluten free. Most of these items are available every day, so if you get a craving for something sweet, you can pop in and we’ll be able to satisfy your sweet tooth. If you’re wanting something more particular, you can always give us a call to place a special order. We always do our best to accommodate your needs!
On the gluten-free menu:
You’ll find plenty of options daily with our freshly baked bread. This is always available – no need to special order!
Coffee Cakes and Muffins
We also serve up delicious pecan butter coffee cakes that are gluten free. Add in a few blueberry or carrot muffins and you can have several breakfast options for family or friends.
Chocolate chip, peanut butter, and signature sugar cookies are also baked fresh daily and are gluten free. Stop in for one or grab a dozen to take home. This is a perfect option to take into the office or give as a hostess gift, especially if you are unsure if anyone has a food allergy or sensitivity.
You’ll find fresh gluten-free chocolate and lemon bundt cakes every day at the bakery. We also always welcome special orders. Gluten-free flavors include chocolate, yellow, carrot and marble. Let us know your favorite or your family’s favorite and we can make sure they have the perfect cake to celebrate any occasion.
We started serving gluten-free donuts in 2017 and are so happy so many of you are enjoying them! You’ll find them in a variety of flavors, including plain and raspberry or custard filled.
As always, we want to be there to help celebrate life’s special occasions and make sure we’re able to serve you the best we can. Offering gluten-free options is one more way we can make sure we meet your needs.
