KETO, CELIAC, PALEO, AND MORE: You all belong here!

KETO, CELIAC, PALEO, AND MORE: You all belong here!

People who live with dietary restrictions – whether chosen, ethically motivated, biologically imposed, or based on religion – are constantly living in this state of “fitting in”. If you’ve seen Brené Brown’s Ted Talk or read her books, you might be familiar with this quote:

“Fitting in is about assessing a situation and becoming who you need to be accepted. Belonging, on the other hand, doesn’t require us to change who we are.”

How often do you feel you need to “fit in” when you are choosing what to eat, whether it’s at the grocery store, out for dinner with friends, or at an event? It’s a pretty crappy feeling to be faced with, feeling like the world isn’t meant for you.

At Superior Bakes, we want you to feel like you belong. That’s why we offer so many options that adhere to specific dietary needs. Yes, you can have your cake and eat it too – literally!

Of course, if you are looking for a healthier alternative to the other sugar-laden sweets lining the grocery shelves and bakery counters, we also have options that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Dietary restrictions or not, we’ve got you covered.

What makes Superior Bakes different from other baking options are:

  • Our treats tend to be lower in sugars and carbohydrates than other baked goods
  • We use limited amounts of sugar in our baking. If we need to sweeten something, we typically use natural sweeteners like Stevia; and when we do use sugar, it’s natural alternatives like maple syrup or honey (which we still use in moderate amounts!). Sweets without the sugar crash? Yes please!
  • The added protein in our baking actually helps you feel full and helps you avoid overindulging. Anything with “protein” in the title means we have added protein, be it whey, eggs, greek yogurt, nut butters, or beans. Since these treats have higher protein, they can make great snacks during the day, after workouts, and provide the nutrition AND sweet treat your body craves!
  • We never use any wheat flour, only oats, coconut, or almond flour. This makes it easier for people who need to avoid gluten or who are watching their carbohydrates.

Whenever you come to Superior Bakes to for a treat, we aim to make you feel seen. We are sure you’ll find something that suits your tastes and needs – it’ll feel like it was made especially for you. And in a world where it feels like options are limited or people are too busy to take your dietary needs into account – we’re here, we’re listening, and we want you to know that you belong!

All about Keto Bread

One of our most popular items this summer has been our Keto Bread.  Super low carb with only 1 gram of carbohydrates per slice, it's the perfect way to add a little bit of variety to your diet.  This week, we're sharing a few of our favourite ways to use keto bread.


Keto French Toast



2 whole eggs

1/4-1/3 cup heavy cream

2 slices keto bread

2 tbsp butter (or coconut oil)



Heat your butter in pan on medium until melted.  As butter is melting, whisk together your eggs and cream.  Add salt/pepper if desired.  Coat your bread on both sides in egg mixture.  Transfer egg dipped bread to your pan and cook on both sides until golden brown.  


Keto Cinnamon Toast



2 slices of keto bread

2 tbsp butter (or coconut oil)

pinch of cinnamon/stevia



Set your toaster oven to broil.  Spread 1 tbsp of butter on each slice of keto bread.  Top with sprinkled cinnamon and stevia (we like Truvia brown sugar blend for this one!).  Transfer to toaster oven and cook approx. 5-10 minutes or until butter is melted and toast is crispy.


Keto Grilled Cheese



2 slices keto bread

4 tbsp butter (or coconut oil)

4-6 slices of cheese/meat



Heat your butter in pan on medium until melted.  Additionally butter one side of each piece of keto bread.  Place the butter side down in pan.  Add your cheese and meat as desired and then top with second slice of keto bread with the butter side up.  Cook until golden brown on both sides and cheese is melted.  

Ideas - Ham, Swiss Cheese & Spicy Mustard, Monterey Jack & Beef, Cheddar & Beef, Havarti & Pork


Hope everyone enjoys these fun ways to use Keto Bread.  Look for more recipes coming your way in the upcoming months!

Smart Snacking

Snacking can be a great tool to help curb hunger, restore energy levels and keep you going until your next meal.  The key to snacking is to have an evenly balanced snack that includes a mixture of macronutrients.  Adding in some fat and protein will help keep blood sugar stable and satiety levels high!  We've got some great options to snack smart to share with you today.

Smart Snack Ideas

Protein Balls - These guys are super transportable and easy to just throw in a ziplock and hit the road.  They are fine at room temperature so they can be taken out on a hike or bike trip.  They're also full of all the good stuff like flax, chia and added protein.  The flax and chia are high in omega 3's so you also get the benefit of some extra good fats.  

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins  -  These guys have that extra bit of protein added in so they do a the perfect job curbing hunger.  No added sugar either so you won't get any blood sugar spikes and crashes.  They're great on their own or even with a little bit of grass fed butter or peanut butter on top.  They're nut free too so they can easily be sent to school as a snack or late breakfast.

Keto Cups - Right out of the freezer these cute little guys are the perfect craving crusher.  They come in a few different flavours too to suit all your needs.  Chocolate Peanut Butter, Blueberry, Raspberry, Strawberry Cheesecake and Orange Creamsicle!  Very low in carbohydrates, they will satisfy your sweet craving without overloading you with sugar.  Eat them right out of the freezer!

Protein Cheesecakes/Cakes & Keto Cakes - We make a wide assortment of cakes and cheesecakes.  These are the best for those late night cravings.  You know when you're sitting down finally after a long day and realize you want a little treat!  Our cheesecakes pack in a passive protein punch with anywhere from 14-22 grams of protein per slice and our Keto Cakes ring in at only 4-5 grams of carbohydrates per slice.  You'll sleep through the night with a full stomach and solid, stable blood sugar levels.

Snacking can be a great tool to keep you feeling your best.  The key is to manage snacking and make it intentional.  Mindlessly eating crackers out of the box or constantly going back for a scoop of ice cream out of the tub is unsatisfying and probably has you eating more than you think.  Pick a snack that is balanced and will satisfy your need. We have a great menu online full of great options to suit many dietary needs and wants.  Check it out at www.buffbakery.ca and get to smart snacking!
