As the creator behind AWG Bakery's delicious gluten and grain free bread, Hanna gets many questions ranging from being a mother who owns a small business to what is her top pick for bread flavor. In this Blog, she shares some of her favorite toast-creations and fun stories. So how much does Hanna love the bread? She actually eats it all the time. Her whole family loves it! Her husband uses it for sandwiches and their year and half old son happily devours it. Toddler approved! We hope this will inspire you and make you feel part of the AWG family. We are here because of your support!
Black Truffle Toast
Question: What is your favorite bread flavor?
Hanna: So, I love all the flavors but right now I am really into the Everything Loaf. With the garlic and onions mixed into the dough and then baked, wow! This flavor just adds an extra kick to any creation. I really missed bagels and cream cheese when I became grain free. It really is the main reason I came up with this flavor. My recent craving is for @yvonnesvegankitchen black truffle cheese drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled with @primalpalate garlic and herbs. Seriously, just the best!
Cottage Cheese Pesto
Question: What is your go-to lunch toast?
Hanna: So my newest creation, Cottage Cheese Pesto, is amazing! I use our Rosemary Bread as a base. I just love this flavor. When toasting, my kitchen just smells amazing. It just gives any creation an extra little kick. I top it with a pesto, cottage cheese, sundried tomatoes, and salt and pepper. The Rosemary and pesto blend perfectly. This is such a healthy fast lunch and these days with a toddler, I need fast.
I Can't Give Up Pizza
Question: When you created the Rounds, did you have pizza in mind?
Hanna: Yes! I love pizza but with going grain free I just couldn't find a good crust. After we came out with the Everyday Minis, I was trying to decide the next product. I really missed pizza and was trying to see how I could use the dough as a crust. After some testing with size and thickness, the Everyday Rounds were born! Did you know the Rounds are our second most popular product, first being the Everyday Loaf? My main intention was to offer pizzas crusts to our customers but quickly we realized they were so versatile. There is SO much you can do with these little round gems. I love them!
Question: What is your favorite "sweet" treat creation?
Hanna: Well, I always grab CinnaSpice Bread when I need a treat. There is just nothing else like it! When I started to test this flavor, I made it with only cinnamon but realized it needed more spice so I mixed in ginger, cloves, allspice, and nutmeg. WOW! I did not add sugar because I wanted our customers to control their sugar intake. So when I need something sweet... there is nothing better than almond butter and seasonal jam drizzled with local honey. It reminds me of my childhood. With being grain free, it can be challenging to find substitutes to your favorites, especially like those when you were a kid. I also love to make French Toast with the CinnaSpice for breakfast but these days with a toddler it has become more of a weekend treat!
