Nā Minoʻaka Me Ke Aloha
Cookies bring smiles. Delicious, healthy, gluten-free, cookies made with love and only the finest ingredients bring even bigger smiles! Since 2009, residents throughout the Venice, Santa Monica and Malibu community have looked forward to the wonderful, big square cookies from The Goddess, available at various coffee shops and markets. Now, we're making them available directly to you, via our website!
Because Ingredients Matter
If there's one thing Grossmama Elfie taught me it was that baking/cooking is love and that what you put in the food is truly important. It's the farmers who grow the sustainable almonds for the flours we use, or the octogenarian macadamia nut grower in Kona who has farmed mac nuts all her life that ensure the powerful goodness in our cookies. It's attention to detail like our proprietary cacao that brings the intense chocolate flavor with only half of the sugar.
Because Community Matters
There is harmony when all things work in synergy. Therefore, our highest priority is not only to harmonize with nature by creating sustainable, healthy foods, but to help our community. GFG Bakery dedicates great effort to this by partnering with organizations like Food Cycle LA and other community organizations to serve all.
Me Ke Aloha from Humble, Diverse Beginnings
Gluten free Goddess Bakery started life in the back of a tiny kitchen in 2009 in Venice Beach California. The first cookies sold at Venice Farmers Market, local coffee shops, and juice bars. My recipes are a blend of three cultures. The core comes from my tiny Austrian Grandmother Elfie’s nut torte Recipes and the loft and chew comes from my French Nana June’s cookie recipes. I added a heavy dose of Aloha and my passion as an Opera singer and the joyful freedom of California Surf Culture.
