The gluten-free baking all began in 2012. My first professional bakery was born in 2016 – Free Food Georgia. In 2018, it transformed into a physical location (The Green Spork) outside Savannah. We sold it in 2021 after buying a home on SSI in 2020. After several months of rest and planning…. I started baking again and launched Beach Bum Bakery!! I’m a Beach Bum and I bake, so it makes sense, hey? 🙂

“I eliminated wheat from my regular diet in 2012 in an effort to reduce joint inflammation, clear my foggy mind and improve digestive health. I was an avid baker before this major dietary change and have spent years altering recipes for myself and my family.”

MENU for Jan 31st
First up:
Creekside fresh air market!
Sunday, Jan 29 noon – 3:00
This will be my first market there and I’m so excited for this gorgeous venue! There will be new items and lots of variety! *I’ll post on social media if I sell out before the market shuts down!

Second up: if I don’t sell out….
I’ll send an email blast out with “leftovers” and we will go from there!

Thirdly: a smaller menu this week due to my BIG Sunday!

Burger Buns (GF, nut free, +egg), 3 for $8
Soft, but low moisture. Exactly what a bun should be! Great for breakfast sandwiches too! Slice and freeze!

Oat/Coconut Lime Bars (GF, +dairy) $4 ea
I gluten-cheated and ate one at Starbucks on a recent roadtrip, and now I need them consistently in my life! Dairy comes from the lime cream cheese frosting, butter and small sprinkle of white chocolate chips, which also keep it from being a “healthy” treat LOL! But “healthy” isn’t always the goal!

Breakfast Cookies #2 (GF, V, +nuts)  $5/2-pack
aka “Nancy’s Cookies”
Grain free! Chia, pumpkin & sunflower seeds in a slightly cinnamon spiced almond vanilla dough. Cranberries, hemp hearts, pecans & coconut shreds create a fun and satisfying texture!
Store very well in freezer – my fave way to eat!

ALLERGENS & INGREDIENTS
I disclose allergens on menus and list all ingredients with care/instructions or directly on the item. If you have a severe allergy or intolerance beyond gluten, please reach out to confirm AND make a note of your food trigger on your order email. Then I can take extra precautions!

Cross contamination for nuts is probable, as there are ample nuts in my kitchen.

Corn allergies: the powdered sugar and one flour blend that I use contain a small amount of cornstarch. Please reach out if you have a corn allergy, so we can discuss.
