Brisbane's Favourite Guilt-Free Doughnut Makers Are Opening Their Own Bakery

If you love doughnuts (who doesn't?), but you're wary of just how bad they are for you, you're probably a fan of a certain Brisbane business. And if you're not already a Nododonuts enthusiast, you'll soon have more chances to try their tasty wares and convert to their healthy (well, let's say healthier), organic, gluten-free, baked ways. Yes, the makers of the world's friendliest doughnuts — even if they do say so themselves — are opening their own cafe.

In the best Halloween news you're likely to hear this year, Newstead's Ella Street will become the home of the snack can feel less guilty about consuming, from October 31. Their brand new bakery will offer up all the flavours they've been serving at selected markets and cafes across the city, plus a big batch of new concoctions.

Given that their existing lines include banana bread and blueberry cheesecake varieties, as well as mouthwatering fresh raspberry, triple coconut and dark chocolate, you're allowed to get excited about what's to come. Given that Nodo has taken the fatty, sugary, deep-fried snack we all know and revamped it as baked, organic, gluten-free gourmet fare, you're allowed to overindulge a little as well.

The idea of doughnuts that are actually good for you might sound like a fantasy, but in the two years since Nodo launched, they've tried their best to make things a little less artery-clogging for dessert lovers. At a time when you can find doughnut stores of the not-so-good-for-you variety on almost every corner, it's no wonder that they've found their way into the hearts and stomachs of everyone who can't resist what has become Brisbane's favourite sweet treat.

Find Nododonuts at 1 Ella Street, Newstead from October 31. Visit their website and Facebook page for more information.
