Living and travelling gluten free in the UK, Australia & around the world!

Melbourne’s gluten free donut explosion!

When I was first diagnosed with coeliac disease, doughnuts / donuts became a distant memory. Now we have sooo many options  for gluten free donuts in Melbourne with freshly cooked donuts available at markets, donut shops that are open 24/7 and several gluten free bakeries around town producing cinnamon, jam and iced donuts.

This post covers Melbourne and Mornington Peninsula.

Hot freshly cooked donuts

GFree Donuts Melbourne 

To me you can’t beat a warm cinnamon donut! They are gluten free and vegan and also have other toppings for a small extra cost. Find them at markets and events around Melbourne (e.g.  Thornbury Food Truck park, Hank Marvin Market in St Kilda East and Brighton East, Hastings).

OMG Decandent Donuts Melbourne 

Gluten free and vegan donuts dusted with real fruits, nuts and spices. At markets and events around Melbourne – check out their social media pages for where they will be. Again, I just love the plain cinnamon ones! Often at Nunawading market, markets around the Mornington Peninsula and Flemington farmers market. This franchise is also in Queensland.

Rebel Donuts – Mornington 

(57 km south of Melbourne city centre)

They have two flavours of pretzel style donuts – the glazed donut and cinnamon.  I absolutely love the glazed one – either as it is or warmed up in the microwave. Cross contamination controls are in place as they are made and stored separately.  They do run out of GF donuts, so it is worth checking first if you are making a special trip.

Donuts at supermarkets

Noshu 

Often found at Woolworths, Coles Express & independent supermarkets, Noshu donuts have a variety of flavours. They are more like a cake but have no added sugar free and are baked, not fried, so a little kinder to the waistline.  They are stored in the fridge section. I quite like the caramel spice one after a light microwave to make it taste a bit fluffier.

A variety of brands

A variety of brands from gluten free bakeries are available frozen at Sunnybrook Health Store in Ormond and Gluten Free Foods in Mornington (and probably many IGA supermarkets too).
