Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-free Breads (Review & Giveaway)

 **CLOSED** Winners are Maryann D and Help Mama Remote! Congratulations

I received some yummy samples to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own as always. 
I have noticed that so many of my friends and family have transitioned to gluten-free foods for a variety of health reasons. I have considered it for my family, but we are big on texture. Gluten-free has tasted like cardboard in the past and that has turned us off. When I did some research on gluten-free Canyon Bakehouse breads, I was drawn in to the fact that they say their breads are soft and have a texture close to traditional breads. I just had to find out for myself.

I received a nice assortment of breads for my family to try out including: Rosemary & Thyme Focaccia, Hamburger Buns, Cinnamon Raisin and 7-Grain bread.
I decided to start with the Cinnamon Raisin bread for breakfast. I like my bread toasted so I popped it in on a low setting before I spread a think layer of butter on it. I took a bite and then another. I was indeed shocked that it had the same texture that I am used to with cinnamon raisin bread. Also, it wasn't overly sweet which is good.

The next one I tried was the 7-Grain bread. I made a sandwich for lunch and decided to try a tiny corner without toasting it. I think I am still too new to gluten-free bread so I toasted it lightly. That did the trick! It tasted like a rich Artisan bread I would buy from a bakery. It was really hearty and filling. I can't believe that this regular bread eater might just be convinced to make the switch! I searched the store locator to see if there were any stores in my area that carry them and to my surprise, I found 4 locations. You can also order baked goods directly from the website. Right now, they have a special if you order "one of everything", you can get $5 off.  They even have a page dedicated to recipes using their products. I think there will be some cinnamon raisin French toast being made in the near future.

  5. Would I be wrong to want to try them all. LOL The Cinnamon Raisin grabbed my eye first. I'm going to put these on my shopping list. I've only tried a couple gluten free bread brands for Jala. It's so hard with how picky she is already. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  13. The gluten free chex cereals are yummy as well as the vans waffles plain and blueberry yummy, you find while on the gluten free change that you become less hungry and cravings are so much less. It's wonderful change but it is tough the Amy selection foods I have tried are good for those days you just can't think of what am I gonna eat or make kind of days but there are coming up with alot of items now making it easier... hopefully by this big depends the cost would go down a bit on items too but it is just less than a dollar most of the items and it is healthier for us.
