It started with a cookie sheet, a hand written recipe card and a love of making treats for friends.
The idea for Bloom grew from a warm house filled with friends and food. A desire to make food that included everyone, regardless of allergies or dietary restrictions.
In 2011, after a long career in the Travel industry, owner Ashley Benson decided to turn her beloved hobby of baking cookies into a small business that allowed her to stay home and raise her daughter. With so many of her friends and family having egg, dairy & nut allergies or vegan diets, Ashley recognized that there was a space in Edmonton for high quality, great tasting cookies free of common allergens. After a few different name options and market tests, Bloom Cookie Co. was born!
Bloom began selling in farmers markets in and around Edmonton, and soon grew to offering wholesale options to numerous cafés around town. In 2018 Bloom opened their first storefront on 124th Street.

We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy a great tasting treat. We wholeheartedly embrace the idea of inclusivity, and try to make cookies that almost everyone can eat. Our cookies are egg & dairy free, made in a nut-free kitchen and made without the use of any animal products. We offer a number of flour free options as well (although, we wouldn’t call them gluten-free).
