About Us

Jill Dorais

Owner

Jillybean’s Keto Bakery is a passion project. Weekends are my favorite time to get in the kitchen to make delicious things, and try new recipes. Do I expect this to blow up into this huge successful business that pays the mortgage? Lol, no. It’s about taking a hobby/passion and turning it into something that can help others. 

I've been following a Ketogenic and/or low carb lifestyle off and on for the last 10+ years. Keto/low carb has definitely grown in popularity in the last 5 or so years and I’ve seen more and more β€œketo” items popping up in grocery stores. But most have questionable ingredients and personally I can't eat them. Even with this growing popularity, what I still don’t see is many options for homemade baked goods or meal prep that omit the wheat, and sugar. Sometimes you just want the convenience of not having to cook, like everyone else has.

I work full time, and have a family. So while I can’t dedicate 100% of my time to this new venture, my heart is in it and I hope you’ll enjoy what I have to offer.  

FAQ

Q: How long will your products last?

A: Since there are no preservatives or sugars added to our items, refrigeration is always recommended unless otherwise stated. Items moved to airtight containers that are refrigerated commonly last 7-14 days. Items that are airtight wrapped and then frozen commonly last 1-2 months. Items that don’t specifically state that they do well on the counter in their description, commonly last 2-4 days if left on the counter.

Q: Is it best to let the items get to room temperature before eating?

A: Most of our baked goods will have optimum flavor if brought to room temperature before consuming. In most low carb products, the fat content is higher which results in a firmer product when kept cold.

Q. Can I see the full nutrition and/or ingredients for your products?

A. Absolutely, we want to be 100% transparent and up front with you about what you will be putting into your body. Each individual item listing contains ingredients in the body of the description and full nutritional information in the photo section.

Q. I noticed you use Stevia and Erythritol in many of your recipes, will this affect my glucose or kick me out of ketosis?

A. Stevia and Erythritol are ketogenic and diabetic friendly natural sweeteners with a glycemic index of zero. They contain zero net carbs and are a healthier natural alternative to artificial sweeteners. Artificial sweeteners like saccharin, sucralose, and aspartame may lead to gut health problems when consumed regularly.

Q. I have celiac disease and/or a gluten sensitivity/intolerance, do you take special care in ensuring there isn’t gluten in your items?

A. Yes, we are hyper aware of gluten and cross contact/contaimination and do take special precautions. All counters/work spaces are wiped down with antibacterial cleaners before taking any ingredients or dishes/utensils/pans/appliances that are used for the bakery out. All dishes/utensils/pans/appliances that are used for the bakery are stored and washed completely separate from the rest of the household and never touch any sponges/ brushes/towels etc that the household uses. The oven is the only equipment that is used for both gluten and non gluten items, but never on the same day.

Q. I noticed that other places call items β€œketo friendly” and market items as β€œzero net carbs” but they contain wheat and starches, are these really keto friendly?

A. Technically, no. In short, wheat, grains, and starches convert to sugar when the body tries to break them down making your body continue to use glucose as the source of energy instead of fat. But it’s a personal preference that depends on your goals and your reaction to these ingredients. I know that I personally ate wheat/grains for years, while following a low carb lifestyle. I’m just more cautious of what I put in my body these days as I struggle with inflammation and several autoimmune diseases. 

Let’s talk a little about why wheat, grains, and starches aren’t really good for you on a ketogenic diet (or any diet for that matter). When you eat a grain, it is quickly converted in the body to a sugar. To get the sugar out, your pancreas produces a bunch of insulin (a fat storage hormone) shifting your body from burning fat and ketones to prioritizing sugar use. Over time, eating grains and starches with a high carbohydrate count and high glycemic load will create a continual irregular blood sugar pattern of surges and crashes and begin to wreak havoc on one’s body. Conditions like metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, diabetes, and silent inflammation are all examples of what can result from the surge/crash patterns we create by our food choices. Our bodies long for homeostasis (balance/stability) in our blood sugar and function best when we keep sugars to a minimum and balance them out with good proteins and beneficial fats. 

So, limiting your overall sugar intake means limiting those grains and starches as well. While the grains may contain more nutrients than plain sugar does, the body still treats the sugar (carbohydrate) the same! You cannot get past β€œsugar” cravings by only cutting out simple sugars – you need to cut out all sources of sugar.

LOVE supporting this small business owner! Every single item is packed with flavor -- you forget it's without sugar! I've already lost track of how many orders I've made since Jillian launched. As a type one diabetic, it's so hard to come across delicious treats that won't make my blood sugar spike. I'm so thankful that I don't have to worry about that anymore. Thanks a million, Jillian!

Jill's removed my guilt over my having a huge sweet-tooth. Her sweet baked goods are delicious, satisfying (one cookie, instead of a row of cookies) AND, I feel great after enjoying them (no sugar crash). The blueberry muffins are the best, she's really got that one mastered.Today I made a fried egg sandwich with pickles on her Everything Bagel, wow, fantastic!! They'd be great plain as well.

Sister bought an array of goodies to share. Tried the scones, sugar cookies, cinnamon roll cupcake and coffee brownie. They were all delicious but my favorite is the coffee brownie. Making eating healthier not only plausible but enjoyable. Thanks Jilly for pursuing your passion.

I wanted to surprise our daughter on her 1st Mother's Day with some yummy keto treats. Our daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes 4 years ago and desserts she can have that won't have a negative impact on her health are rare. I was elated to find Jillybean's on Yelp and ordered some goodies to be delivered on Mother's Day. Jill is wonderful and included a note from us to our daughter with the delivery. Our daughter is enjoying her desserts and will definitely be placing her own orders going forward
