UPDATE, 3/5: We have recently learned the “retail” portion of TGM’s business has closed. Orders are now only available via their website or by contacting the business via their Facebook Page (although we reached out here on 2/18 to confirm this information and have yet to receive a response).
The Gourmet Muffin (TGM) may be a little challenging to track down – both online and IRL – but it’s definitely worth the hunt. That’s because online they only have a Facebook Page under this name (they live on Instagram under @thegourmetmuffin; you’ll find some articles by local news sources. TGM is also known in the digital world as “The Keto Bakehouse.” It’s also fairly nondescript and somewhat hidden in the gem of a neighborhood Audubon Park. If you’re familiar with Audubon Veterinary Clinic on Corrine Drive, well then you’ve arrived at your destination.
I popped in to TGM one morning not too terribly long ago with someone who was practicing Keto – TGM specializes in Keto/lchf baking and has vegan and gluten-free items. Always wanting to check out new–or at least new to me–local businesses I was eager to see it, and what it has to offer. And while this building is the first brick-and-mortar business for TGM it’s been on the scene offering its delicious creations at various farmers markets throughout the Central Florida area. Now be aware this is a very, very tiny bakery. In fact, pretty much when you walk in the door you’re standing at the counter of goods; it’s quaint, to say the least.
Our muffins are made using only the highest quality, all natural and organic ingredients! We specialize in KETO low carb goodies and also Vegan varieties. – The Gourmet Muffin’s Facebook Page
Like a laser to its target my eyes immediately zoned in on the Cinnamon Coffee Cake Muffin. Although I waited to eat it when we got home, we must say it was quite tasty. An ample serving size (as you can tell from the photo above), it was filling, had a very defined cinnamon flavor, and was (gasp!) moist. If you want to see the full suite of muffins and products you can do so on The Gourmet Muffin’s website. Aside from mine you’ll find caramel muffin, chocolate muffin, maple pecan muffin, pumpkin cream cheese swirl muffin, and more in non-Keto friendly flavors.
For the Keto offerings, the blueberry and lemon muffins were amazing, even though the serving sizes seemed small. To date, this is also the largest offering of Keto baked goods that we have found. When we visited, the bakery was even making it’s first promising ventures into Keto-friendly birthday cakes, a local delivery option, and simple catering options.
