They got Whoopy Pie! Sure, you will also find a variety of other sweet stuff as well as great wraps and salads and breakfast items at Whole Treats in Truckee. And yes, most of the food is prepared with gluten free ingredients with a focus on being healthy. Yeah, yeah, that’s all well and good. But seriously, you gotta try the Whoopy Pie.

After a 40 plus mile bike ride from Donner Lake to Cisco Grove, and more importantly back, I need one of those Gobble Gobble wraps with turkey and cranberry. But that’s just to stretch out the tummy to get it ready for the main event, that Whoopy thing that keeps me coming back for more. In the middle there is this big glob of not too sweet but just sweet enough filling, surrounded by two cookie/cake like bits of lusciousness. In fact, it is the perfect way to cap off any athletic endeavor anytime of year.

Ok. Back to the rest of the menu. Aside from the Gobble Gobble, go for the Tuna Wrap. They’ve also got a whole host of top notch salads. Or go for breakfast burritos and a host of other eggs dishes like The Kitchen Sink, which includes just about everything. They’ve also got a host of different waffles. And then there is the French Toast Casserole. They take gluten free muffins and soak em in the eggs and a bunch of other yummy goodies to marinate all those flavors, and then cook it up in the morning. I’m getting hungry just typing this.

The idea for this Whole Treats began with owner Elizabeth Weir’s discovery that she had Candida, an excessive accumulation of yeast in the body. After changing her diet to only whole food, this life long baker had to discover how to bake with alternative and healthy baking ingredients. She puts that knowledge to work in what she serves at Whole Treats.

While the food is great, it’s also satisfying to have the opportunity to support a small locally owned business that is providing a healthy product to the community. If you’ve stopped at Whole Treats before and liked it, get yourself back in. They would love your business.

Whole Treats is a 12047 Donner Pass Road, next to The Shell Station where the Outlet Stores and Paco’s are located. (530) 582-1554

Introducing: Whole Treats Bakery   Leave a comment




Living at Truckee/Tahoe, we’re usually not in short supply for places to find a lovely, sit down meal. For a quick bite, however, our choices are often more slim.  A quick bite with lovely ambiance is even more rare.

Recently arrived, located in what used to be the old outlet mall, is Whole Treats Bakery. Not only does it sport an eclectic menu that’s not the same old, same old, but it’s Organic and most items are gluten free.  (With ingredients so good for you, no doubt they are guilt free as well!)

Here’s a description from their menu:

French Toast Casserole: A Whole Treats signature.

We take our gluten free buns, chunk them up and soak them overnight with organic eggs, coconut milk, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, pure vanilla, cinnamon and a touch of nutmeg.

Baked fresh every morning, we top off our casserole with a mouth watering cinnamon crumble. Served with our house whipped basil mint butter and pure organic maple syrup. We are pretty sure your taste buds won’t be left disappointed.


I don’t know about you, but that tasty sounding treat sure makes me hungry!

I also really enjoyed the decor. That isn’t the same old, same old either.  How refreshing to have a fashion forward environment that is simple, tasteful and even a little elegant.  It almost makes your morning coffee with muffin fix feel like a special event.

Whole Treats Bakery is open Monday-Saturday, 7am-5pm.  Or call 530-582-1554 for more information.

And be sure to ‘like’ her facebook page!
