    I was just recently diagnosed with a gluten sensitivity. Before this I was a regular at Knead. Their donuts are hands down my favorite, especially in RI. When I realized I would never be able to eat their brown butter pecan donut ever again I was very sad. I seriously had one at least twice a week that’s how much I loved it. I looked on their website and found that they have flourless donuts! So I decided to take a ride and see what they had. The girls at the Elmhurst location were so nice and helpful. They assured me that even though they are in the same facility as the other donuts they are baked and not fried which made them even more appealing to me. They always have the chocolate donut but their seasonal was a blueberry cake and they BOTH were AMAZING. They were moist and frosted perfectly. I was pleasantly surprised and on top of that did not get sick from them. I will DEFINITELY be going back probably more than I should but they were so good! Maybe my dream will come true one day and they will make a flourless brown butter pecan donut. 😁

    Most wonderful donuts!! The donuts are labeled "flourless" and only available weekends, but if you are not highly sensitive, I would definitely suggest a visit! Staff is aware to package separately from "flour" donuts, but displayed in same case - FYI.

    The GF donuts taste amazing but I've been contaminated on 2 of 2 visits. Unfortunate!

    So, so good. Definitely keep in mind they only have their GF donuts on weekends, but the staff was super knowledgeable and helpful when I had to ask about my casein intolerance in addition to gluten. I'm very sensitive and had the GF chocolate cake donut, and I've had no negative reactions whatsoever. Highly recommend!

    Although they only carry gluten free doughnuts on the weekends, the staff was very knowledgeable about being gluten free. They call the gluten free doughnuts “flourless” because they “might be cross contiminated with airborne flour”, but the doughnuts are still baked, not fried, and have 0 gluten ingredients.
