Guiltless Protein Bakery in Sea Point is a little slice of heaven. This bakery is unlike anything Cape Town has ever experienced. With health being a major priority for Capetonians, Guiltless Bakery has created a range of products that satisfy the sweet tooth, without derailing your eating habits.

All the items on the menu are high in protein, gluten-free, low in carbs, have no added sugars or preservatives and are absolutely delicious. In the glass display you will find cookie dough protein bars, carrot cakes, red velvet cupcakes, protein baked cheesecake, bonbons and peanut butter brownies.

If you are on the go and looking for a caffein fix, Guiltless Protein Bakery serves up a mean cup of coffee. The Ripped Coffee, essentially a warm protein shake and Bullet Coffee are two items worth trying.

For those looking for a protein-packed meal, breakfast and lunch options are available. Think brownie batter, carrot cake or strawberry cheesecake proats (protein oats) and protein flapjack stack featuring blueberries and bananas for breakfast. A mouthwatering variety of protein smoothies are also available, as well as open toast options.

What reinforces Guiltless Protein Bakery’s commitment to delivering high quality, affordable and delicious products, is that the nutritional information of each product is displayed. Customers know exactly what they are consuming.

Founding owner, Claire has always had a passion for baking and was trained as a baker and cake decorator in Cape Town before moving to the USA in April 2016 to pursue her career.

Claire worked in a confectionery store in Tampa, Florida for three months before quickly realizing that it was going against how she believes one should live a healthy lifestyle. After doing research she found a wonderful bakery located in the heart of Miami and immediately fell in love with their ethos of healthy baking and decided that was where she needed to be.

She was head baker for two years from July 2016 to June 2018 and it was during this time she was inspired to return home to Cape Town to be back with family and open Guiltless as she believes there is a huge market for the concept of healthy baking.

As a protein-based bakery, Guiltless allows you to indulge in a variety of baked goods without feeling guilty about it – “a treat without the cheat” as Claire says. She believes in treating her guests to an array of deliciously prepared and beautifully baked goods, knowing they can enjoy it without all the nasties.

“I truly believe you don’t have to sacrifice treats to live a healthy lifestyle,” adds Claire.
