New Product Review: The Baker Organic Whole Wheat Bread -- Agave-Sweetened Sandwich Bread

Oh happy day! I'm so pleased to tell you how great it is to be able to buy bread in a store! When I found this 100% whole wheat bread in the back of the George Street Coop one morning when I was volunteering there, I told everyone on the shift (because they know of my baking with agave bent and have benefitted from the results).

Usually bread is sweetened with some type of sugar like evaporated cane juice or honey. Not so with this very tasty bread from The Baker Organic. While the 100% whole wheat variety uses agave nectar (and a little barley malt), the 7 grain and fiber as well as the spelt selections add molasses, so be on the lookout for that.

Other agave-sweetened varieties include green tea and gogi berry, and pomegranate and blueberry (next on my list to try) .

The 100% whole wheat is full of wheat flavor, and you can pick up some oaty flavors as well. It toasts great, and makes an excellent peanut butter and apricot spread sandwich. The bread is moist, and not at all dense like most whole wheat bricks. Generally speaking, it's great stuff.

Even though the web site says they only sell to the west coast, I bought this in NJ, so you might just find it near you, too.

Sounds delish (though I'm quite sure I won't find it near me at present--products tend to take a while to get here!)

How cool Deb! Will be on the lookout for it here in Austin.
In the meantime will keep buying my spelt bread. It only has spelt, salt, and water in it! Really great toasted...hm, think I need to go get me a piece! :-)

Thanks Erin and Ricki. :)

There was a single loaf left at the co-op when I left a couple of hours ago. Should have bought it an frozen it. If there's one thing we always have in the freezer, it's bread!

Love this bread, never seen it before at my grocery store before. I do love Agave and this is just the perfect healthy bread I could dream of.
