Their products are GMO-free, artificial colour-free, peanut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and vegan which make them guilt-free in my books!  Each of their healthy sweets are made from scratch and contain all natural ingredients.  They offer cupcakes, muffins, cookies, brownies, cake, ice cream and specialty items.

I recently tried their World Peace Cookies and oh my goodness, they are too good for words and oh-so fresh!  They’re made with pumpkin and sunflower seeds, cranberries, raisins, chocolate chips and oats.

Our family just enjoyed a week at the cottage and upon returning, we visited Kelly’s Bake Shoppe for some delicious treats!  After all, what’s a vacation without a trip to Kelly’s?  The kids chose ice cream sundaes, as always!  A’s favourite is vanilla with healthy gummy bears on top, F likes chocolate with brownie sprinkles and V loves the chocolate and vanilla swirl with a side of cookie dough.  My hubby tries a new cupcake each time and I always choose the mile high brownie.

I love to bake and make many healthy, homemade sweets but it is such a treat to devour one of Kelly’s goodies! It always tastes better when someone else makes it and it’s a fun outing for the family.  I love that despite being dairy-free, my children are able to experience going out for ice cream on hot summer nights!  Our family has enjoyed Kelly’s treats since they opened in 2010 and we look forward to making many new memories.
