GuiltFree Pastries

Image
It all began with foodie and chef Brandon founder of GuiltFree Pastries when he discovered his lifestyle was far from healthy and was driven to lose weight.

Within 110 days he had lost a total of 125 pounds and later on in March of 2013 Brandon succumbed to an allergic reaction to gluten which resulted in him concocting recipes in which he could still satisfy his sweet tooth and remain healthy too so in the kitchen he went for a creation that was not only delicious but free from grains and gluten in which GuiltFree Pastires was born !

Brandon's first GuiltFree Pastries creation was a brownie that was made with avacado giving them that moist texture so rich yet so delicious without any processed sugar, grains, gluten or butter using both local and organic ingredients.

Since then Brandon added muffins, cookies and brownies to the GuiltFree pastries line!

Image
It all began in the small town of Middletown, Rhode Island the during 2009 with a passion for baking not just any desserts but those that are free of both wheat and gluten by Ruth Flynn where she discovered just how hard it was in locating top notch gluten-free treats and made it into reality when she concocted her very own muffins, brownies, cakes and cookies.

Before Ruth started as a Gluten-Free chef she began as a New England cardiovascular 
sales representative for GE medical systems, then later in 2010 Ruth called it quits and opened the doors to Eva Ruth's gluten and wheat free bakery offering an array of decadent cakes, pastries, cupcakes plus full sized breads both fresh and frozen ! 

How could I have lived in Rhode Island practically all my life and not have known about Eva Ruth's bakery in Middletown let alone that you could find her baked goods in the frozen foods section at select grocery stores across both Massachusetts and Rhode Island !? 

Gluten and I are no longer …
