“Why not bake, spread joy, and give back?”
These are the words of a 27-year-old self-taught baker named Amanda Palomino, who recently launched her own bakery: Batter that Matters. For Amanda, delicious cookies are a no-brainer, but she wanted her sweets to mean something. That’s why she decided to start a business where a portion of the profits go to charities.
As the daughter of Chef Rafael Palomino, the owner of several restaurants in the U.S., Amanda is no stranger to food.
“My dad would take care of dinner and I’d take care of the sweets,” she said.

A long-time lover of baked goods, the New Yorker has always had a soft spot for cookies.
“I found myself baking a lot during the pandemic and giving away a lot of cookies to family and friends as a way to de-stress,” she added.
So, she figured, why not start her own business and give back in the process?
After fostering several dogs throughout 2020, Amanda decided to kick off her charity donations by giving to a no-kill animal shelter, the SPCA of Westchester. She plans to switch up her charity of choice each season!
Her website states, “I love making people happy through baked goods, and now more than ever, we need to help each other out.”
Now is a great time to start! According to a TOP Data study, “the amount of Americans who eat more than three cookies per day on average” has reached 1 in 5.
Luckily for us, her online bakery ships locally and nationally, serving up goodies like Nutella Red Velvet, Sprinkle Rush, Double Chocolate Chip, and Dulce de Leche — as well as vegan and gluten-free options!
If these cookies are as good as they look and sound, we wouldn’t dawdle. Go get yourself some Batter that Matters!
Talk about spreading joy! What a wonderful way to turn her passion into an act of kindness!
