Origin Bakery Cheese & Herb Scones and Coconut Macaroons


Origin Bakery is my go to dedicated gluten free bakery in Victoria. Whenever I come down island to visit family and friends I always make sure I stop in at Origin and stock up on lunches and treats to help me make it through the weekend. My favourite items are their baguette sandwiches, fig bars, apple galette and of course their cupcakes loaded with icing.
As a sponsor for the upcoming Gluten Free Health and Wellness Festival, they have offered up some tasty gluten free recipes that I’m pleased to share with you (courtesy of the Gluten Free Festival team).
