How Kelly’s XO Bake Shoppe can ‘whip’ you into shape

The Best Bakery in Burlington you say? OK… and they will help me get healthier?

You have tried just about every other diet there is and still you get on that weighing scale and dread the lack of progress you have made. You are not alone. Countless individuals have battled the bulge, wrestled with the excess pounds, and lost, or at best, lost the extra weight but only for a short time. What should you do? Eat cupcakes.

Sweet Treats are Made of These

You are not light headed or protein starved from extreme dieting. You can actually eat a cupcake guilt-free and not have to worry about your waistline expanding, your thighs bulging, and your overall weight exceeding what is sufficient for your height. How is this possible?

It is possible because at Kelly’s bake shoppe, they make cookies, cupcakes and brownies with ingredients that are better for you. Kelly’s XO Bake Shoppe creates 100 percent, organic, plant-based (vegan), dairy free, egg-free, peanut-free and gluten-free cupcakes, cookies, brownies, scones, and even better, wedding cakes! So instead of using heavily processed ingredients like white flour, saturated fats, and refined sugars ranking high on the glycemic index (foods with a high score on the glycemic index can affect your blood sugar and insulin levels, which can lead to diabetes, among other health issues), Kelly’s uses these healthy, plant-based ingredients:

  • Organic cane sugar
  • Sucanat
  • Coconut sugar
  • Gluten-free flours like fava bean, sorghum and garbanzo bean flour
  • Organic and fair-trade cocoa
  • Maple syrup
  • Espresso beans
  • Beets
  • Peppermint oil
  • Applesauce
  • Organic Sweet potato
  • Organic Pumpkin
  • Agave
  • Coconut
  • Coconut Milk
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Lemons
  • And natural colours from flower petals

Have Your Fat-free, Guilt-free Cake

Not only are the sweet treats from Kelly’s Bake Shoppe delicious and better for you (not just your waist, but your overall health, too), they are also good for the environment and small communities. Vegan chef and owner Kelly Childs along with daughter and baker Erinn Weatherbie only source organic and fair-trade ingredients. So eating vegan and gluten-free cupcakes at Kelly’s could be the very definition of guilt-free indulgence.

It’s not just the weight watchers that can benefit from Kelly’s XO Mile High Brownie or Red Velvet cupcake made with dairy-free buttercream or their award-winning Dulce De Leche cupcake. People with celiac disease, peanut allergies, autism (and ADHD), lactose intolerance, and other food sensitivities can now also enjoy a treat or two, without worrying about adverse reactions. This is probably why Kelly’s XO Bake Shoppe just recently won Best Cupcakes and Best Bakery for 3 years straight, besting other non-vegan bakeries. Kelly’s Bake Shoppe also was just ranked #3 on BuzzFeed’s list of, “The Top 25 Cupcake Shops in the World to Visit Before You Die”. Yes! A very cool bucket list!

So want to get into better shape? You can do that today by making small but sweet changes to your diet. Try vegan and gluten-free treats. You’ll not only feel trimmer and lighter, but you’ll also be happier!

Kelly’s is the healthier bakery…..that happens to be gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, peanut-free and vegan.
