I recently got a chance to check out Sally’s Gluten Free Bakery and try their Paleo sandwich bread as well as the Paleo banana carrot walnut muffins. Sally’s has three locations around the Metro-Atlanta area and I have visited both the Alpharetta location and the Sandy Springs location. Sally’s is known for their gluten free items, but they also have options that are soy free, dairy free, egg free, and paleo. I wanted to get a judge on whether their Paleo options hit the mark since my diet is mostly Paleo. Details below on locations, links, and more about this Atlanta bakery. Let’s start with the Paleo sandwich bread. The Paleo sandwich bread comes frozen, which is pretty standard for paleo bread in my experience. I noticed the sandwich bread has honey, meaning it is not low fodmap. Even though it has honey, it must not be a ton, cause I didn’t have a fodmap reaction to it. Once thawed I used the bread to make a stacked BLT (turkey bacon, lettuce, and fresh tomato) sandwich, as well as some french toast. The bread actually stands up to the sandwich and didn’t break apart–an issue I have seen in other Paleo products. For french toast I covered the bread in egg and cinnamon, and I was pleasantly surprised that the bread didn’t taste “healthy” in fact, my whole family tried it and couldn’t tell that is was Paleo! Details with the ingredients from their website below.

I was surprised by how these muffins tasted buttery but don’t have any butter or ghee anywhere in the ingredients. It also doesn’t have any added sugar which is something that I REALLY like. The sweetener comes only from dates and bananas, but it is enough to keep it delicious and perfect as a companion for a cup of coffee in the morning. I ran through these muffins really fast because, well to be honest, they were tastier than I had thought they would be! Details with ingredients from their website below.

Overall I am extremely impressed by the Paleo products available at Sally’s Gluten Free Bakery. I haven’t found other bakeries (even gluten free ones) that offer Paleo options anywhere in Atlanta, so this place is a gem. Plus they offer gluten free cakes, which is perfect for a party or a holiday. Those have regular sugar in them, so your family won’t be able to know the difference! Sally’s Gluten Free Bakery has won the “Reader’s Pick Best Gluten Free Option” from Creative Loafing as well as being named one of the “Best Gluten Free Bakeries In America” by Delight Gluten Free Magazine. Sally’s three locations around Metro-Atlanta are as follows:
