Why I'm in Love with Kelly's Bake Shoppe...

Not too often does a healthy vegan go on about loving a bakery…
Usually baked goods equal dairy, gluten, refined sugar, "bad" carbs and artificial flavouring and colour.
Enter Kelly's Bake Shoppe - Heaven!
This gorgeous little spot in the heart of downtown Burlington, Ontario has mastered making absolutely delicious treats that are vegan, gluten free, peanut free and use natural, organic, healthy ingredients. They have taken every common inflammatory ingredient and substituted it with a healthy, allergen free alternative.

We can start with my fav - the brownie! Honestly I would suggest you go right now, get 6, eat one and love every minute and then put the other 5 in the freezer for the next time you have a gluten free, vegan brownie craving. Which, if you are like me, is about every 2 hours! You would never guess it doesn't' contain any of the "bad" stuff - super moist, rich and chocolatey and just the right amount of sweetness. True love!

Cupcakes! Yes they have them, yes they are delicious and there are a dozen or so different flavors that look as good as they taste. I'm partial to the chocolate mint which is made with pure peppermint oil but I recently branched out and tried their Coffee Break - it has a cinnamon sugar mini donut on top. I probably don't have to say much more than that…

Their cookies are a perfect "to-go" snack. Chocolate chip, Snickerdoodle, and my two fav's; the World Peace and Skinny. The World Peace cookie is made with gluten free oats, pumpkin seeds, cranberries and chocolate chips - I sometimes grab one of these when I'm on the go as a mini meal since they are full of plant based protein and fibre. If you really want to be guilt, guilt free - opt for a Skinny Cookie - no flour, no sugar - just bananas as a sweetener - and trust me - they are super yummy!

Kelly's also has a beautiful selection of cakes that you can order - including wedding cakes and they offer vegan ice cream in the summer months. Yes, I said vegan ice cream. With fun toppings!!!

If you are anywhere near the beautiful city of Burlington, take some time and visit this cute little healthy spot - order a cozy tea or a coconut milk latte and savor a delicious, guilt free and health conscious dessert.

Wait - you don't live close by? It's ok! They deliver anywhere from Grimsby to Bowmanville. Yes that means vegan, gluten free cupcakes in your PJ's…like I said - Heaven!

Sending you sunshine, happiness and vegan brownie love,
