Sweet, Sweet Alexis and Her Amazing Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Nut-Free and Peanut-Free Bakery

Oh Sweet Alexis, where have you been all this time? Can allergen-free bakery items really be this good?  Everything from Sweet Alexis is dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, peanut-free and full of flavor. When you try their cookies or quick breads, you will be amazed as I was by the fantastic flavors and textures. Once you try them...irresistible!

We were fortunate enough to try several items: Zucchini Bread, Banana Bread, Oatmeal Cookies, and Chocolate Chip Cookies. They all were truly divine. The mini-breads were fresh, sweet, delicious, and the perfect density. The bread made a generous snack for four of us, with some leftover to snack on later. It was quickly devoured! The cookies came 6 in a pack, tasted superb, and were delightfully, appropriately chewy. We loved everything. I was even able to persuade my incredibly picky five year old to try the oatmeal cookies, and now he's an oatmeal cookie lover. I can't say enough good things about Sweet Alexis. If their products fit your dietary restrictions, and you enjoy bakery goods as I do, you must try them!

You may have heard previously about Sweet Alexis from Jenny on the Nut-Free Mom Blog or Alisa on Go Dairy Free. It's all true!

Sweet Alexis has a dedicated commercial kitchen with dedicated equipment, and was founded by Michele Fellows, mother of Alexis, a young girl with multiple life-threatening food allergies. The bakery is located in Los Osos, California. Sweet Alexis breads and cookies are available for purchase online at sweetalexis.com. Currently, the breads are $6.25 and the packs of cookies are $4.50, plus shipping. It's a tempting option for Valentine's Day or any day! Way to go, Michele!
