Have a gluten/dairy-free cake and eat it too
The early days of unappealing gluten-free and vegan options are long gone, with many LA restaurants taking extra steps to appeal to those with restricted diets. But there are a handful of independent bakers dedicated to bringing improved gluten-free and vegan options throughout LA.
As Erin Mckenna’s Bakery expands her well-known sugar-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free baked goods beyond Larchmont and into a second location in Santa Monica in the coming year, Angelenos shouldn’t overlook the similar and well-established bakeries, along with the newest specialty bakers. With new techniques and better ingredients, these bakers vastly improved the consistency and texture of vegan and/or gluten-free items in recent years. These ten bakers are true innovators with pastries, pies, cakes, and muffins that could fool any non-believer into thinking traditional ingredients lay within.
Note: alert staff of any allergy or sensitivity before ordering, as some facilities might experience cross-contamination.
