Burbank’s Half Baked Co has been whipping up healthy treats for approximately three years from a small location on Burbank Boulevard. Just a few months ago, the local bakery moved to a larger, more visible, location on the same stretch of Burbank Boulevard.
Word-of-mouth on the creative concoctions continues to spread. Half Baked Burbank’s products contain half the fat, calories and sugar of similar cupcakes and macarons. The bakery also offers several vegan, gluten-free and sugar-free options for its sweet desserts.
The bakery has developed a reputation for colorful custom-ordered cakes in addition to the sweet treats including cupcakes, macarons and cake pops made fresh every day from ingredients like almond milk, applesauce, unbleached whole wheat flour, herbs and fruit.
For those with a need for chocolate, never fear. Several options for your chocolate fix are prepared daily, along with colorful, fruit and herb flavored tastes. June’s special flavor of the month is Passion Fruit, which lends a bright kick for the eye and the tastebud.
Half Baked Co also makes fresh baquettes and croissants, and serves a variety of coffees, teas and drinks. The new location is very clean, airy and bright, with cafe tables and chairs inside and out.
The macarons are a perfect size for a few bites of sweetness. We enjoyed the pistachio, chocolate, lemon and lavender recently. Our current favorite cupcake, the Honey Lavender was exquisite with its tiny reservoir of liquid honey in the center and lavender frosting.
Half Baked Co earns a Tops In Town for its healthy approach to baking and terrifically delicious sweet treats.
