Cinnamon- New gluten-free vegan online bakery


I am excited to announce that my friend Geanna Marek has recently opened a new, online vegan bakery! Her bakery has a sweet name "Cinnamon". Cinnamon is 100% vegan, gluten-free and allergen-free which makes it a really good news for all vegans and gluten-free foodies. 

Cinnamon was founded in 2012 by Geanna Marek, who had suffered for years from various allergies and intolerances. After realizing there really wasn't anything on the market that she could safely and comfortably eat, she sought to create delicious foods for everyone - no matter what their dietary restrictions or preferences may be. She succeeded with making baked donuts, cinnamon rolls and cookies that are free from the top 8 common allergens (milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy and wheat), but are tasty, too.  
Cinnamon products are baked in a 100% gluten-free and vegetarian commercial kitchen that has been licensed by a state health inspector from the Department of Agriculture. Cinnamon products are baked with separate utensils and dishes, and are stored in enclosed containers to ensure that no cross contamination occurs. 
Cinnamon is located in Portland, Oregon. Contact Geanna at 971.258.2995 Tuesday-Friday, or email info@cinnamonpdx.com for more information. 


I was lucky to receive a few of her baked goodies right after my surgery. I received plain donut with cinnamon sugar, seasonal pumpkin donut with pumpkin glaze, and bite-sized "classic" chocolate chip cookies. 

The plain donut with cinnamon sugar was everything but plain. It started with the beautiful cinnamon aroma. Mmmmmmm. The donut was pleasantly soft and it was not greasy or overly sweet. It had a distinctive donut texture and flavor. It was very good! 

The pumpkin donut with pumpkin glaze was more dense and less soft which was a good thing since it was holding up well under a   generous layer of pumpkin glaze. The pumpkin glaze reminded me of pumpkin butter. A perfect autumn treat! 

Chocolate chips cookies were sinfully delicious! These sweet cookies very infused with strong vanilla and loaded with rich and decadent chocolate chips. The cookies had a nice crunchy texture. 

If you order baked goodies from Cinnamon, you will not be disappointed! Support a new vegan business and order now on Cinnamon's website.
