Sweet Eats- The Beginning
Sweet Eats was formed in early 2016 in response to what appeared to be, a simple need. Our founder, Jenn, began as a health coach inspired and driven to help her clients and her family members in Schenectady NY live happy and healthy lives. One of her clients was in search of a healthy, guilt free granola bar that was nut and seed free.
We decided to turn to the kitchen and experiment with healthy alternatives. The founder’s diet most often reflected a gluten and dairy free baking and cooking style, so creating a healthy bar naturally fell into that category. After a few duds and with thanks to all the clients and coworkers, perfection was born, and Sweet Eats was formed!
Sweet Eats is committed to our customers in Schenectady NY using only the highest quality ingredients available.
- No refined sugars. We use organic coconut sugar, maple syrup or honey.
- Gluten-free rolled oats. The FDA defines gluten-free as either is inherently gluten free; or if the use of that ingredient results in the presence of 20 parts per million (ppm) or more gluten in the food. Our gluten-free supplier produces with 10 parts per million (ppm) gluten in the oats.
- Dried Fruit is unsweetened, or apple juice infused. High quality nuts: pistachios, almonds, cashews, and our favorite, peanut butter!
- Vegan? No problem. We use ‘flax eggs’ in our cookies. Mixing water and flax seed creates an egglike consistency for baking…Super cool!
- Sea salt provides natural health benefits and does not attract pollutants found in common table salt
The lemon is simply present. The blueberries just pop full of flavor. The chocolate is smooth and aromatic. Owning the creation process from beginning to end makes the conception of new products almost endless. We have summertime favorites like the Lemon Coconut Bars and fall favorites like Cranberry Spice and Gingerbread bars. We can tweak recipes based on consumer input and we can create new pairings to meet the needs of our customers.
Our granola bars are softer, not dry and with a cookie like feel. Speaking of cookies, the breakfast bar is outrageous, and the cookie mix offers a blank slate for the creative baker.

It is not the size of our business, but the magic in our products.
We like to think there is magic here. Magic happens when someone who has been diagnosed with Celiac Disease or is lactose intolerant finds our products and gives us a hug at the local farmer’s market. Or when a parent is looking for a nutritious snack for their child’s lunch and the children are actually happy about it.
That is magic. It is a feeling and mindset we will always have here at Sweet Eats. Keep those ideas and suggestions coming for healthy snacking.
