Canyon Bakehouse, located in Loveland, Colorado, is a bakery dedicated to making Gluten-Free bread that has the consistency of traditional bread, and tastes delicious.The website touts the following features of their freshly baked items:
- Certified Gluten Free
- Made in a dedicated Gluten Free Bakery
- Dairy, Nut, & Soy Free (if egg is present, it is clearly noted)
I hear about Gluten-Free all of the time, and I have been more than just a little curious to learn more about it. One thing that seems consistent, through my non-direct affiliation with it, is that it's hard to find Gluten-free items that appeal to those who don't have to eat it. Canyon Bakehouse is on a mission to make that no longer true.

Canyon Bakehouse 7-Grain Gluten Free Bread on the right.
With the 7-Grain Gluten-Free bread, you can actually see and taste the grains. I liked that, a lot. The textures between the two were very similar, though the Gluten-Free was a bit more spongy...just a tad, and it did not deter from the flavor. My husband had 7-grain toast with his breakfast later that morning, and he said the same thing. The gluten free bread took longer to toast too, which Ann from Foodie in WV (she has a lot of Gluten free recipes that look soooo good over at her place) assured me in an impromptu discussion we just had, is not out of the ordinary.
While you could tell the difference between the traditional loaf of bread we buy that has Gluten, and the Canyon Bakehouse loaf that was Gluten-free, both of us agreed that the Gluten-Free selection was not all that distinguishable from the bread we already had in the house. It was my first experience with anything baked intentionally Gluten-Free, and I'm glad I had it.
