Hi there everybody!

Just wanted to give a heads-up.  The online bakery will be down for the holidays to accommodate our employees.

We will be back-up again soon and happy to take your orders. 

Thank you so much for your continued support.

May peace and good blessings find their way to you in 2012 and always!   (R) 
 
 
My super picky eater, Ethan, finally tried a GF Boulder Bar this week. I was nervous since he usually only eats my GF Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites or Papa's Choc Chip Bar. But, my husband encouraged me to go ahead. We opened the package and within 5 minutes, Ethan was asking for ANOTHER Boulder Bar. I had to ask him "honey, what did you say"? It turns out that he LOVES these now. So tonight I made up fresh Boulder Bars...except I substituted dried cherries for the cranberries, omitted the almonds (Nut Free) at school, and I didn't have any sunflower seeds at home. Instead of threw in some extra oats and they came out great.

" Gluten Free Product Review: Helping Hands Bakery

Remember when I first mentioned Helping Hands Bakery and said I was excited to try them? Well, they sent me a package of goodies, so I was able to!

Helping Hands Bakery is an awesome gluten free bakery that also provides jobs and job training for adults with special needs. They’re located in Boulder, Colorado, but you can purchase their products at Whole Foods Markets in Utah (and CO, NM, and KS) as well as online."

Next week I have a meeting with Autism Speaks to discuss my ideas to create a Helping Hands Bakery Vocational Training Center. I'm so excited!! More to come!! Also, I'll be getting ready for my meeting with a Social Venture Fund group. Wish us luck!! It's my dream to provide people with autism and all types of abilities with job training and jobs where they can be as self reliant as possible! Everyone has gifts to give. Have a great night!

Look out Toll House!  This is the best chocolate chip cookie bar, PLUS it is gluten free.

We have here a chocolate chip cookie bar FULL of chocolate chips. That's right! Papa demands that there are actually loads of chocolate chips in a chocolate chip cookie bar.  That's why it is called: "Papa's Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar."
Even better, the gluten free delight, has fantastic texture and flavors that make the chocolate chip cookie bar an everlasting-classic-treat.

So,  stop by the shop and order some for yourself today!  You deserve the best-tasting chocolate chip cookie bars EVER!!  Plus, we took out all of the gluten.  Sweet.

I LOVE these cookies!!! Especially the boulder bar! YUM! I haven't tried the chocolate chip cookie bites yet, but can only imagine how delish they will be...have had the monster bites and snickerdoodles too. I 'like' them on facebook and follow them on twitter. I would love to win!!!! The concept of this bakery is just amazing...what a wonderful thing to do for her children and others with special needs as well. As the mother of a 5 year old with special needs, this really touches me personally.
 
 
Hey, this one really is fun!!!

We have some Helping Hands Bakery themed STRETCHY BRACELETS to giveaway.  This is only one set of 3.  Really, one stretchy bracelet can feel quite lonely all by itself.
