Owned by a nonprofit foundation, Greyston Bakery whips up gourmet brownies from Belgian chocolate and equips its employees with job skills, earning the attention of O, The Oprah Magazine and supplying Ben & Jerry’s with fudgy goodness. Unlike bakeries run by mummies, Greyston eschews preservatives, filling colorful gift boxes with all-natural flours, sugars, and eggs. Chocolate-fudge squares brim with bold flavors and a chewy texture, and their walnut-fudge cousins fortify bodies with fiber and protein. Sweetened with brown sugar and dappled with chocolate chips, blondies lure snackers with a scrumptious scent and golden hue. Espresso-bean brownies tickle synapses with a gentle caffeine buzz, letting chewers energize without swallowing jumper cables. Buyers may also choose a variety pack, which contains an assortment of all four flavors.
A branch of the Greyston Foundation—a charity that supports low-income families with health care, affordable housing, and other basic needs—the Greyston Bakery imbues each batch of brownies with a social conscience. A Zen Buddhist meditation group founded the bakery in 1982, growing the business from a tiny storefront operation to a sought-after dessert supplier for New York City restaurants and cookie monsters.
