Rise Bakery, DC

So many bakeries, so little time. For Christmas a couple of years ago, I received a $25 gift card to Rise Bakery in DC. It's definitely not a bakery I would have sought out, but now I'm so happy to have discovered it!

Rise Bakery is a gluten-free bakery in the Adams Morgan neighborhood that was founded in 2014. They specialize in catering to specialty diets without sacrificing taste, texture, or richness. So they make several gluten-free, vegan items. I absolutely love how everything is labeled as dairy free, egg free, soy free, or nut free, and of course, vegan.

I felt like a kid in a candy store with my gift card, so I got like one of everything!  The Raspberry Jam bar was absolutely delicious. I cut it in half with the intention of only eating half, but that didn't exactly happen.

The vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies are to die for. I mean, I was really impressed with how good they were--soft, rich, and loaded with chocolate--do not buy just one.

The Carrot Cupcake was a little grainy, but I loved the icing.

And, best of all, was the Superfood Bread. When have I ever loved a gluten-free bread? I don't think ever. This bread is some of the best bread I've ever had. Made with amaranth, quinoa, millet, flax seeds, and sesame seeds, you can eat it out of the bag or use it for sandwiches. No matter what though, either eat it quickly or freeze it because it will go bad quickly due to the nature of this fresh bread.

I must say that I wasn't too excited about going to a gluten-free bakery, but after trying their baked goods, I'm very impressed. I can't wait to go back for more.
