Notice that this list is called best bakeries in “and around” Toronto, this is specifically so that I can include Kelly’s Bakeshop from Burlington on the list.
None of these bakeries use refined sugars or toxic ingredients – and they are all beyond amazing. They all happen to be vegan, and most of them are gluten-free, or offer gluten-free. Although some are nut-free, some use nuts, and others don’t use nuts, but aren’t necessarily nut-free. They are ALL really incredible, so there is no reason to ever have a toxic, fake coloured baked treat again!
I have listed the following in no particular order with my favourite item (or more) from each:
1. Kelly’s Bakeshop – just trust me on this one, it’s worth the drive or the delivery, and get at least one Mile High Brownie.
2. Bunners Bakeshop – two words: cinnamon. bun. (and butter tart, and gypsy cookie, and their savoury pockets too!)
3. Tori’s Bakeshop – the maple ba”con” donut was award-winningly good, but I haven’t sampled enough, enough times to give you a definitive favourite, but their selection is great!
4. Sweets from the Earth – best treats to take to any school celebration for sure because they are nut-free (so good!!) – my favourite is their “Cream Filled Cupcake“! Bonus points for being able to buy lots of their products in grocery stores – you have to try their frozen cookie dough!!
