A Gluten-Free and Vegan Roadtrip: Bunner’s Bakery

As the Mom of two little gluten-free cuties, I am happy to do a lot of baking. But I’ve also dreamed of being able to take my kids to a bakery where they can eat anything they want. And where Pete and I can eat anything we want!

Enter Bunner’s bakery – a gluten-free and vegan bakery in Toronto, Ontario. I was lucky enough to enjoy one (okay, two) of their cupcakes at my cousin’s wedding in December. I knew my kids would love a visit to their bakery so they could pick their own cupcakes.

Luckily, Bunner’s recently posted on facebook that they would have gluten-free and vegan Easter Cream Eggs for sale.

Last year I had a hard time finding chocolate Easter candy that my kids could enjoy, so when I saw what Bunner’s was offering (um, yes please vegan Easter Creme Eggs) we took a road trip.

It was worth the trip to Bunner’s, as you can see by Livvie’s cupcake!  The kids LOVED them, just look at that icing!  What’s not to love?

We tasted the cupcakes (obviously), brownies, cookies, and of course the Easter Creme Eggs.

I had a lovely chat with Ashley, one of the owners.  She stole my heart when she said one of her favorite things about running the gluten-free and vegan bakery is watching kids come in and enjoy something delightful.

Bunner’s sells all kinds of delights: bread, cupcakes, muffins, cookies, and much more.  We can’t wait to go back and stock up.  I am anxious for Easter to arrive as those Easter Creme Eggs call my name every time I open the freezer!

Oh, and another reason to love Bunner’s? They use whole-grain gluten-free flours and unrefined sugars in all of their treats.  Heaven, right?

 

You can find Bunner’s on facebook, on twitter, but you really must get to Toronto and visit their bakery. I can’t wait to go back on a Saturday, around noon, I know we’ll leave with a car-full of goodies.

Have you ever been to a gluten-free bakery?
