Gluten Free Vegan Baked goods?

Does anyone know a place to get (preferably good) gluten free vegan cookies, cakes or other desserts? I'm good at making desserts that are either gluten free or vegan, but both is a tall requirement. Berkeley/Oakland area preferred, but SF or Walnut Creek areas could also work.

    Mariposa's stuff is so good I didn't realize it was gluten-free. Whether they make any vegan items I don't know.

      Mariposa's treats look great. Unfortunately, there is dairy in a lot, and eggs in everything.

          I'm not sure how the cooks at Cafe Gratitude make those "cakes," but there's no baking involved. They don't heat anything past 115 degrees.

          Flour chyld in Novato. I know, it's kind of out of the way. However, they do sell at a stall at the San Rafael Farmer's Market on Sundays. And you may want to call them and find out what other farmer's markets they sell at.

          Really good desserts, especially Little Black Dress torte made with bittersweet chocolate, brandy and espresso. Well worth the caloric hit to the waistline!

            Gluten Free and Vegan cookies:

            I tried the Ginger Spice cookie at Philz Coffee (see photo). It was OK, not great, compared to a traditional cookie. I don't know how it would rank within the subset of gluten free and vegan.
