Erin Baker’s

Vegan, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free… what’s the right way to eat? We believe the answer is different for everyone. Whether you’re trying to optimize your personal health, the health of the planet, or are eliminating certain food groups just for fun, we all have a different definition of the word healthy. Our new Salted Chocolate Cashew Better Cookie was made as a clean and indulgent treat for everybody no matter what your dietary choices or needs are.

Grain Free Better Cookie

When a craving hits these decadent cookies will not disappoint! While other cookies spin you into a sugar crash, we’ve made it easier to make the better choice. Welcome to chewy, chocolatey, soft-baked indulgence… it’s better this way.

 

It all started in 1994 when I rented the 4-H kitchen at the Whidbey Island Fairgrounds to bake my way to a better life. Inspired by my mom's healthy baking and armed with a KitchenAid mixer, I created a revolutionary new way to serve breakfast... The Original Breakfast Cookie was born!

For the last twenty years, oats and fruit have been the staple ingredients in my bakery, making us unique in our efforts to provide healthier food products. I take great pride in baking products with whole food ingredients that are sourced close to our bakery. While the "hands in the dough" touch is more time consuming, the gentle treatment of the raw ingredients results in a more premium product in terms of taste and texture, and also ensures my granola is full of whole, chunky clusters.

"I believe in a better way to eat, and I won't take 'no' for an answer."

I am fortunate to have a very talented and smart mom who also happens to be a real foodie. I spent my childhood observing my mom doing it "old school," growing food of all kinds and then canning, drying and preserving for eating all year long. There was a constant bowl of whole wheat bread dough rising on the heater vent along with passionate conversation about the difference between whole food and refined processed food and why we don't eat "that margarine crap." I learned about the high value of whole foods and the absence of value in refined and processed foods.

I lived in San Francisco Bay Area in my early teens and 20's where I was inspired and educated by talents the likes of Alice Waters, Bradley Ogden and Emily Luchetti. They celebrated the importance of whole foods and demonstrated how to cook and bake with whole foods with wild success, this was in the 80's... they were onto something! Exposure to this genius left me determined to cultivate my own brand of success.

I believe in my products like we believe in our kids... with all of my heart. And... I am just getting started.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
