The Gluteny Bakery
This gluten-free bakery, located in Houston, continues to offer locals and lucky tourists the taste of some of Texas' favorite treats without the added ingredients of wheat, soy, dairy, and toxic dyes. Using cooking tools which require a three-day sanitation process to ensure that there are no traces of cross-contamination — upholding a standard of satisfaction that speaks for itself in terms of allergy-conscious dedication.
When founder Stacey Vincent developed the motto, "I'm just going to bake and see what happens..." back in 2012, she never could have imagined the impact that her famous chocolate chip cookie bombs would have on the world. Offering a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie bomb — that many say is one of the best sweets they've ever had — speaks for itself, let alone the level of success that this Texas bakery has already achieved.
