Welcome to the Gluten-Free Baker’s Bench!

When you think of gluten-free baked goods, what is the first word that comes to mind?  For us, it’s “joy” – and we’d love to share that joy with you.

Several years ago we discovered that my husband had a severe reaction to gluten.  I bought books, tried flour blends, tested recipes, and learned to enjoy the ways that gluten-free baking can be more fun than traditional baking.  What I enjoy the most is giving a gluten-free treat to people who can eat whatever they want and watching them really enjoy it.

I am grateful to the independent shops in Mecklenberg and Union Counties who carry Gluten-Free Baker’s Bench muffins and bars.  Our creations are currently available at these locations – 

  • Alice Jules Coffee House in Monroe, NC
  • Cathy’s Coffee Shop in Indian Trail, NC
  • Mugs Coffee in Charlotte, NC
  • Provisions in Waxhaw, NC (brownies and peanut butter chocolate chip bars)

You can also find us at local markets – 

  • Saturday mornings – Matthews Community Farmers Market in Matthews, NC
  • Mondays from 8 to 10 am – Pop-up market with Good Cup Coffee at TBH Spa in Indian Trail

Many thanks to my family for being my most trusted taste-testers, and to my amazing daughter-in-law, Allie, who created this site.  May we enjoy many more years of sharing warm, soft cinnamon rolls, hot mugs of coffee, and peanut butter chocolate chip squares together.
