Award winning Brownies

Quality Food Awards 2017

With over 2,000 entrants for a number of different categories, the Small Producers Award was whittled down to a shortlist of 15, and Love Brownies were awarded the winning accolade within the ‘ambient’ category.  This was a huge achievement for us, not to mention being invited to the awards night at London Mayfair's Grosvenor House Hotel which was a wonderful evening.  We even managed to pitch to the Co Op fingers crossed!

Deliciously Yorkshire Awards 2017

The Love Brownies Bakery opened its doors to the public in September 2016, allowing customers to enjoy locally roasted coffee with their brownies, or to simply just browse around our shop full of Chocolate Brownie creations.  We were shortlisted down to three for the Best New Business Award  and came joint second which is a massive honour.

Great British Food 2017

This year we received a 'Highly Commended' award from Nutrition expert Naomi Delvin who also teaches at the River Cottage.  A tough competition, but we did it!

Bradford Means Business Awards 2017

Fighting off some great businesses we managed to get shortlisted down to three for the Independent Business Awards.  A great privilege to be recognised as innovative and a promising business creating jobs and local shopping in our home town, Ilkley.

Great Taste Award 2017

After working hard on our new Wild Mint recipe we were delighted to pick up another Great Taste Award for this flavour.  We received great feedback and look forward to trying even harder next year. Judges thought 'A deeply dark brownie with an immediate hit of mint - the texture is quite fudgy, the chocolate does come through and the overall does present the expected combination. Lively mint continues right through to the end on the palate'.

London Observer Food Awards 2017

Based on customer nominations, we were delighted to shortlisted for the Independant Retail Award.  There were some seriously big contenders out there, so thank you to all the customers who voted for us!

Great Taste Award 2016

Delighted to win 2 Great Taste Awards for our Raspberry Brownies - the judges thought..'a depth of chocolate, crispy top, gooey fudgy cake, good fresh raspberies, smooth mouth-feel to start and a very slight graininess to finish. Melts in the mouth which is delicious.

Great Taste Award 2015

Wow, we are so excited to have won the top Great Taste award of three gold Stars for our delicious Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie.  The judges thought.. 'WOW, baked so well, with crunchy top, rich chocolatey middle, real melt in the mouth.  A good size for one and unusual baked in a square.  Excellent degree of sweetness. Even if this wasn't gluten free we would all eat it!!!!! YUM'.  Then we also went on to win one Gold Star for our scrummy Morello Cherry Brownie which is a firm favourite with you all! Only 130 producers out of 10,000 were awarded with 3 Gold Stars, so this will go down as a year to remember!!  I am smiling as I type still!  We are really so delighted!!

Great Taste Award 2014

Whoops, by the time we tried to enter,  the Great Taste Team had closed the doors as they had maxed out on entries .  They have to  cap it at 10,000 otherwise they simply would not have time to judge everything!!

Great Taste Award 2013

Love Brownies for the second year in a row have been awarded another gold star in the Great Taste Awards 2013 competition for the gluten-free original Love Brownies. Wonderful result,we are absolutely delighted and could not wait to share the news with you!

Great Taste Award 2012

Described as the Oscars of the food world, the Great Taste Awards are the UK’s best-known and most trusted food and drink accolades. In 2012, our gluten-free original Love Brownies won two Gold Stars – yes, two! In their words, that means ‘faultless’. This is a massive achievement in an area of the food market where ‘gluten-free’ is still seen as somehow second-rate. Well, we proved that wrong! In fact, we were so keen to make the point, we only entered our gluten-free brownies this year.
