This week’s Treat of the Week is the sweetest of treats. It’s a little photographic trip to a lovely new bakery in Seattle named Bouteloua Bakery.

A couple of weeks ago, Megan, the owner, contacted me to let me know they were open and to see if I’d stop by the next time we were up in Seattle. Uh, yeah. You better believe it. You had me at vegan bakery.

Not only was Megan kind enough to invite me to her beautiful new space… she also had a special surprise waiting for me.

The original nom! cats, from days of yore...

This is, without a doubt, the coolest thing anyone has ever done for me. How rad are these cookies?!

So freaking cool!

The noms didn’t stop there, because it was time to load up.

Lemon rolls, sticky buns, rhubarb cake and chocolate chip cookies

OMG, everything was excellent, but the lemon rolls ruled my world. I adore citrus and this was better than I could have imagined.

The best gluten-free cupcake I've ever had. Amazingly fluffy and moist!

Megan, the baking goddess herself!

If you’re in or near Seattle, do yourself and favor and make sure you stop by Bouteloua! Being in the PacNW, I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy lots of vegan bakeries and Megan’s place is brand new and already at the top of my list. Seriously, Seattle’s got a vegan virtuoso in its midst, so eat up! Thanks for the invite, Megan, and super thanks for the fabulous nom cookies!

    One more thing to add to the list of reasons why I want to go and visit Seattle! The bakery (and the treats within!) looks fantastic. I don’t know when I’ll be able to make that trip happen, but in the meantime I’ll make sure to send my Seattle friends there… and I’ll enjoy the treats vicariously!

    Thanks for the tip on the bakery – my family (sans me, wah!) will be in Seattle in a couple of weeks, so I told them they should go check it out. My vegan mom will love it!
