Sweet Laurel Bakery


We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our 2 ingredient Vegan Chocolate Chips, one of the special ingredients in our favorite Banana Bread! When Laurel began her paleo baking endeavors 2014, it became very clear that there weren’t many chocolate chip options that were refined sugar-free, soy free, dairy free, and free of other fillers and additives. For the longest time, she made her own, a recipe often shared here and in the Sweet Laurel Cookbook! We finally found an amazing partner, a Los Angeles based chocolatier to work with to produce our own. You are now able to purchase our chocolate chips directly on our website. Enjoy and happy baking!
