What flours do you use?
We predominately use millet flour, flax seed meal, rice flour, tapioca flour, almond meal, and some brown rice, teff and coconut flour. No potato, garbanzo or bean flours! High protein, high fiber stuff! Yum!
Do you use soy?
The chocolate we use does contain soy lecithin. Most of our customers say that this is okay for them, as it is not the protein of soy, but the fat. But, that’s not the case for everyone. Our Cream Cheese Frosting and Cheesecakes have soybean oil as part of Tofutti Cream Cheese blend. A few items have tofu. Other than that, we don’t use soy intentionally.
What sweetener do you use?
We use organic cane sugar for our main sweetener. But, some items have agave syrup, maple syrup, dates or brown rice syrup instead.

How long have you been around?

There are so many gluten free and vegan options in Portland. What makes you different?
Everything we do, we do with intent. We truly value and appreciate customer support, needs, and making people happy. That’s why we’re around. Everyone that works with us is happy. We have a true passion for the business, our work, and how we affect other’s lives. We love to feed people, to show them a good time, and to make them smile. We’ve got personality and charm, and aim to give people not just a cookie, but an experience to take home that they remember, share with loved ones, and that brings them back every day. We love what we do!
