Canâ€™t Say No To Nodo Donuts
Caroline Wild | On 14, Sep 2014
Gone are the days of the bland donut with sickly sweet pink icing and sprinkles, new healthier, adult-diet-friendly donuts are on the scene, and we have Nodo Donuts to thank for it.
Seeing an opening for a less guilty version of one of our guiltiest pleasures, Kate Williams from Nodo Donuts has developed these amazing gluten free creations. Made from organic ingredients, real fruit, coconut products (oil, sugar, milk and cream), raw and rapadura sugars and free-range eggs, these delicious donuts are free of preservatives, and wonâ€™t make you feel as if you need to hit the treadmill after you finish the last bite. Did we mention they are also baked fresh each day, and never fried? Just another reason you can happily indulge in them.
Enough about ingredients though, letâ€™s talk flavours! The hands down favourite is definitely the Blue Myrtle– Blueberry & ricotta donut with lemon myrtle frosting and macadamia/coconut crumb. However, the Banana BreadÂ – Caramelized banana in coconut sugar & cinnamon with maple cream cheese & toasted pecans, is a close second.
Also keep an eye out for the Must Love Coconut with raspberry and white chocolate, Blueberry Cheesecake with lemon cream cheese and a pistachio crumb, Cold-pressed coffee with dark chocolate, and Raspberry White Chocolate, a great sweeter option.
Iâ€™m sorry to say these donuts are not available everyday, so here is the lowdown on how to get your hands on them. Head to the Jan Powers Farmers Markets in New Farm every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month from 6am-12 noon, we got ours from The Single Guys cafÃ© in Kenmore, where they are available every Saturday. You can also head toÂ Dovetail on Overend in Norman Park (Wednesday & Saturday) orBean on Dean in Toowong on selected days. Whatever location you head to, go early because these bad boys are no longer a secret and sell out fast!
If you need a fix before those days however, special orders can be made of over $100, which is perfect for a special event, or anyone who is a little greedy and wants to stock up for home.
It is safe to say that Nodo Donuts have become our newest and (less) guilty pleasure, and they will certainly become yours too.
