Hi, I'm Heather Dillard, and I'm the owner of Desert Bloom Bakery, a home bakery in Plainview, TX.


I've been gluten free since 2011, and started Desert Bloom Bakery in February of 2018. I've self-published three books, including two with gluten- and dairy-free recipes.

As someone who has had digestive issues since I was a teenager, I didn't realize until my mid-twenties that my body has an intolerance to gluten (and also some dairy). It's been an adventure over the years learning how to bake and cook gluten-free food that actually tastes good! That's why I love to bake with Desert Bloom Bakery.

Take it from me: It's hard to learn how to take care of yourself through the foods you eat, but in the end, it is worth it to have a "happy gut."

Desert Bloom Bakery's Core Values:

Create community

* Do hard things

* Be generous

* Stay curious

A portion of Desert Bloom Bakery's proceeds go to Nurturing Change, an organization based out of Austin, TX, that provides trauma-informed care training and resources to foster and adoptive families, professionals, and community organizations around the world.
