YES, and always will be!
Is everything 100% gluten-free?

What do you use to sweeten your baked goods?
We use raw organic sugar, evaporated cane juice and coconut sugar throughout the bakery. We also use bananas, agave and maple syrup. We also use vegan powdered sugar in our frosting.
Do you have any ‘cane sugar free’ treats?
Yes we do! We offer our Skinny Cookies, sweetened with roasted bananas and a pinch of coconut sugar. Our Skinny Cupcake is also a great sugar free option, which is available on Thursdays at the Shoppe.
Are you peanut-free AND nut-free?
Yes, we are 100% Peanut-Free Facility and none of our ingredients contain peanuts. We also are a 100% Nut-Free FACILITY with a disclaimer that all of our gluten free flours are processed on equipment that also processes hazelnuts, almonds, and soy. We use Bob’s Red Mill flours and they “power wash their machinery and discard the initial 30 pounds of flour between runs to do their best to eliminate contamination”.
We advise you to consume at your own discretion.
We use this flour in most of our baked goods. Please call for more information.
What kind of flours do you use?
We use garbanzo, fava bean and sorghum flour as our main flour of choice from Bob’s Red Mill.
What does your Red Velvet cupcake taste like?
We pride ourselves on only using the best quality ingredients and nothing artificial. That being said, we use organic beet juice to colour and partially sweeten our Red Velvet cupcake. The colour of the cake is a subtle red, and has a deliciously unique flavour, that’s wholesome and natural tasting. It’s Erinn’s favourite too!
Do you use any artificial food colouring?
Nope. Never. We use only the best natural colours and we bring them in from California. We know and understand fully the dangers of artificial colours. Artificial food colouring causes brain damage. Artificial colours hurt children and their neurological growth causing irritably and hyperactivity and loss of brain cells. Period.
Do oats have wheat in them?
Oats themselves are completely gluten free and wheat free. However, in the processing of some oats, they may come into contact with wheat. We make sure our oats are free of wheat and bring our oats, from Bob’s Red Mill. They are 100% Wheat Free and Gluten Free. You can breathe a sigh of relief!
Are you grain-free?
No, the majority of our baked goods contain grain. We use grains such as oats, sorghum and rice.
Are you soy free?
We have lots of soy-free options in the bakery. However, we are not 100% soy free as our Ice Cream and Sprinkles contain soy. Just ask one of our knowledgeable team members and they’ll lead you in the right direction!
How many calories are in your cupcakes, brownies, cakes and cookies?
Our baked goods are very nutritionally dense as we use the finest whole bean flours, organic sugars and natural vegetable and fruit purees. Thus, the calorie count if quite similar to that of conventional baked goods. However, the quality of the ingredients is far superior. Click here for our nutritional guide.
Are your products healthy?
Yes they are! We use very protein and fibre rich ingredients that you can feel good about eating and giving to your loved ones. Some of our favourite ingredients we use are garbanzo and fava bean flour (rich in fibre and protein), sweet potato puree (high in beta-carotene), coconut milk (great for your digestive system), apple sauce (natural sweetener) and organic coconut sugar (rich in trace minerals).
