Today I visited my Aunt and Uncle and my brand new cousin, Eliana, who all live here in Los Angeles. I know that when I head over there I'm bound to be fed great gluten free food and today was no exception. They even surprised me with some delicious gluten free chocolate muffins from Schwartz Bakery here in Los Angeles.
It never would have crossed my mind to check Schwartz for gluten free products, but my uncle said that he was recently in the store and saw the chocolate muffins prominently labeled "gluten free" so he picked some up for me. The store also offers gluten free brownies, bagels, and vanilla cupcakes.
The treats were good but not great -- the bakery isn't dedicated to gluten free baking so it can't rival the expertise of The Sensitive Baker or Babycakes. However, it's great for gluten free people who keep Kosher to have a viable option. I know that Babycakes and Sensitive Baker are both Kosher as well, but with the varying degrees of Kosher food Schwartz's may be some people's best option.
