Eating is meant to be enjoyed, not regretted. That's why Bald Baker proudly makes sugar conscious, low glycemic impact foods that you can treat yourself to anytime.

A well balanced diet that includes mostly low GI foods facilitates relatively stable blood sugar levels throughout the day. No need for a 3pm coffee. This is exactly what we produce. #goals

After ingesting a high GI food - which most desserts on the market are - our body quickly absorbs the sugar and then over-produces insulin to push it back down, creating a blood sugar roller coaster. Strong need for a 3pm coffee.
Low GI by Design
The glycemic index is a measure of how quickly carbs affect your blood sugar levels. A higher index means a faster absorption rate, and a greater impact on blood sugar and insulin level. Not ideal.
Our products are all low GI. The sweeteners that we use – erythritol and stevia – have a fraction of the glycemic impact (and calories) that sugar does, and are also all natural (no chemical concoctions here!). And using nuts flours instead of traditional grain flours enables us to keep things really low on the GI scale.
The science behind the glycemic index is cool, and you can read all about it here-- but what it all comes down to is that with Bald Baker treats, glycemic spikes and crashes are a thing of the past. Say goodbye to your afternoon slump.
Finally, you can have your cookie, and eat it too.
Refined sugar contains no fiber, minerals, nutrients, protein, healthy fat, nor enzymes.
And as much as we love our Canadian maple syrup, you won’t find it – or agave, honey or rice syrup – in our products either. Our goal is for you to reduce your sugar consumption, and those replacements are effectively just liquid sugar.
Grains, even the unrefined ones, are a significant source of carbohydrates and in many cases, gluten. We couldn’t justify baking with them when there are plenty of delicious, high-quality, nutritious and low GI alternatives, like almond, pecan and quinoa flour. We produce in a gluten-free facility and we're big into plants and legumes for our flours and fibers. And we think that once you taste our goodies, you will be too.
Eggs are one of the most common allergens for children. We've replaced the binding and textural effects of eggs with an all natural, vegan substitute called a “flax egg” - simply golden flax meal and water combined.
Dairy is another very common allergen. And many of those whom are not allergic still react poorly to its consumption. So we’ve used unrefined coconut oil and canola oil instead of butter. Not only are these healthier fats, with many benefits including boosting metabolism, but they add wonderful flavor to our products.
We believe in producing 100% plant-based products that can be enjoyed by those who do not consume animal-products.
We bake with your enjoyment in mind. First and foremost, our products are delicious. But by removing sugar, dairy, eggs & grains, we’ve created nutritious desserts that can be enjoyed at any time, without regret or concern.
