The excellent web site Food411.com just wrote a lovely article about us:

Baking Mixes that have us all stirred up!
"We tested a few of the baking mixes from “Goodbaker Gourmet”. Finally, a mix that has ingredients that are even better than most homemade baked goods! These mixes are actually healthy & taste wonderful. Made with unrefined grains (100% wholegrain) & sweetners & 100% organic. They mix up in a minute, only needing a bit of oil & water... We highly reccomend these mixes. They have earned a place in our Baking/Mixes section (under the Ingredients heading). This is the way all products should be made."

The Vegetarian Resource Group likes Goodbaker:

VEGAN GOODIES -- Goodbaker Vegan Gourmet Baking Mixes
Are you haunted by visions of vegan brownies, but are intimidated by the prospect of baking them yourself? We may have found the solution for you! Goodbaker Vegan Gourmet Baking Mixes are the easiest way to get your fix short of bribing someone else to make them. Goodbaker offers brownie, cake, cookie, and muffin mixes, that include all of the ingredients you will need except for water and oil. The end result is impressive given how easy the preparation is. The brownies were cakey but moist and chocolaty, and the oatmeal spice cookies were surprisingly hard to resist! Also, these baking mixes would make a great project to do with children. With adult supervision, a child could easily make cookies, muffins, or even a cake.

Still, trans fat is not easy to eject from many products... Cake mixes and tub frostings pose a big challenge, too. But if you want a trans fat–free version now, you can check out the tasty vegan products at www.goodbaker.com

Herbivore: The Magazine of Vegetarian Culture

"If Martha Stewart suddenly morphed into a tree-hugging Earth Goddess, chances are she'd probably whip up a batch of Goodbaker Gourmet's Magic Multigrain Muffins. Not only are these vegan muffins sweet and wholesome like Martha, they're also low in fat, and cholesterol-free. They turn out moist and very yummy, and if you sprinkle a little cinnamon- sugar on top, they smell extra-wonderful. Trust me, they're easy to prepare, which is always a good thing. You just toss in a bit of aqua and your choice of either some applesauce, yogurt, buttermilk, bananas or grated carrots, and you're done!"
– Rachelle Nones

Good Baking
As reviewed by VegNews,
April/May 2003 issue

"We have sampled many vegan baking mixes in search of standouts suitable for VegNews Picks. Few have prevailed. With the recent release of the Goodbaker line, a new standard has been set: these mixes are fantastic. Seriously. These may be the best dairy-free baking mixes on the market, and we bet you won't believe they came out of a bag. With varieties such as Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie, Double-Chocolate Chip Cookie, Fudge Brownie, Oatmeal Spice Cookie, Magic Muffin and Waffle, superb vegan and organic baked goods can be whipped up in just minutes. Goodbaker mixes are available exclusively online at http://www.goodbaker.com"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Goodbaker serves up stealth health food

Lee Busch started Goodbaker, a Massachusetts-based producer of healthy gourmet baking mixes, because he's worried. "Americans are eating too much bad stuff and not enough good stuff" says Busch. "I want to help people eat better by offering them convenient, delicious and healthier versions of the treats they crave."

Developed with the assistance of nutritionists and a professional chef, Goodbaker baking mixes are made with organic whole-grain flours, unrefined sweeteners, and natural flavorings — even the baking powder used contains no aluminum in keeping with Goodbaker's philosophy of "everything good and nothing bad." But Goodbaker's cookies, brownies, and other treats are truly gourmet — you'll never miss the things that have been left out. Busch has spent years experimenting and finding wonderful organic substitutes for traditional ingredients in these recipes that taste great and are better for you.

And Goodbaker's treats are exceptionally easy to make. You only add water and oil, stir and bake — the hardest part is waiting for the oven to preheat. It's a great family activity for parents and children, because the one-bowl process means there's very little mess, and you can even lick the bowl because the batters contain no raw eggs.

Nutritionally, Goodbaker treats are all lower in fat and higher in fiber than conventional recipes, great for anyone concerned about cholesterol or unhealthy saturated fats in their diet, and those who would like to get more fiber and soy protein with its many health benefits. If you are lactose intolerant, or following a vegetarian or vegan diet, you're in luck with Goodbaker, as all mixes contain no dairy, no eggs, and no animal products of any kind.

Goobaker's line of baking mixes includes Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie, Double-Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie, Fudge Brownie, Oatmeal Spice Cookie, Magic Muffin, and Scrumptious Scone. Mixes range in price from $5.99 to $6.99, and each makes a generous batch of baked treats. Goodbaker mixes are available exclusively online at www.goodbaker.com.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Goodbaker design wins national recognition

Goodbaker, a Massachusetts-based producer of healthy baking mixes, has been recognized as having one of the best new product logos of the year by American Corporate Identity, a leading annual review of American business design. The logo will be featured in the forthcoming American Corporate Identity, to be published by HBI/HarperCollins in October 2003.

The design's casual simplicity reflects the ideas behind Goodbaker: healthy treats, made with pure, organic ingredients, that are convenient and easy to prepare. The product line and logo were developed by Goodbaker founder Lee Busch, who describes himself as having "a huge sweet tooth."

After a bout with food poisoning left him unable to handle dairy products, Busch, a graphic designer, had to start baking without conventional ingredients. "I was a serious milk-and-cookie guy — there was always a cookie jar next to my computer. But I found it impossible to live without all the great desserts I was accustomed to eating, so I began a crusade of research, self-education and experimentation to reproduce the things I loved in a form I could enjoy again."

Busch spent years experimenting and finding wonderful organic substitutes for traditional ingredients in these recipes that taste great and are better for you. The result is Goodbaker, a complete line of healthy gourmet baking mixes that are high in fiber, low in cholesterol, made without dairy or animal products, and which taste great — you'll never miss the things left out.

Goobaker's line of baking mixes includes Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie, Double-Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie, Fudge Brownie, Oatmeal Spice Cookie, Magic Muffin, and Scrumptious Scone. Mixes range in price from $5.99 to $6.99, and each makes a generous batch of baked treats. Goodbaker mixes are available exclusively online at www.goodbaker.com.
