For too long, the bottomless appetites of wheat-bellies and dairy-chompers have dominated the baked-goods market. Today's Groupon gives a voice and a menu to the under-represented sweets-loving masses that don’t want milk-bread in their cupcakes. For $6, you get $12 worth of vegan, wheat-free, and gluten-free treats at Flying Apron Bakery on Fremont Avenue North in Seattle or at their new location in Redmond, which opened on May 11. Organic ingredients unite to prove the pastry a malleable foodstuff capable of scintillating reinvention.
While inanimate objects with the power of flight often terrify the muffin-eating masses, aerodynamic aprons are known for their compassionate cuddling and fantastical ribbon dancing. Flying Apron Bakery freshly prepares delicious edibles for the consumption and digestion of all. High-quality organic products, from whole-grain, wheatless flours to non-hydrogenated oils, are creatively employed to compose an overflowing menu of thoroughly vegan, gluten-free, and wheat-free goods. Sweetened fare includes carrot muffins sweetened with agave syrup ($3.25) and sticky pecan cinnamon rolls inspired by brown-rice flour and garbanzo-bean flour ($4.25), while cookie jars swell with Macaroons ($2.45) and chocolate chip cookies full of organic molasses, vanilla, and evaporated cane juice ($2.25).
Customers looking for full meals that fit their dietary needs can turn to Flying Apron's savory items such as curried vegetable pockets stuffed with squash, yams, broccoli, peas, cabbage, carrots, and zucchini ($6.95). Flying Apron makes bread-breaking parties fun again with loaves for those with dietary restrictions. Daily baked breads follow the bakery's strict criteria with hearty quinoa breads, buckwheat seed breads, and the expert bakers at Flying Apron also create a delicious spread of naturally sweetened, sharable pies, such as the gooey apple pie.
