  • Um, I have to bake this? I am not really into baking…

Yes! You really do need to bake it, but don’t fret a second! It is REALLY easy. Trust me on this one. A customer of mine who is no kitchen fairy told me this: “It was so easy to make. I mean reaaaally easy. If you can read you can bake this!” So you got this one! No rising time, no special equipment or kitchen experience is needed. The breads, waffles, & buns need only a bowl, a whisk / handheld mixer, eggs, oil, and water!

  • Why you don’t sell it already baked?

I am a Health Coach and a Culinary Nutrition Expert and I believe that we all need to be a little bit involved in our food. I would like you to get into the kitchen just a little bit (I know you don’t have much time!) and be part of creating your nourishment. Food made with love tastes so much better! And don’t forget you also get the mouthwatering scent of your freshly baking bread linger around your kitchen – along with the sense of accomplishment that YOU BAKED BREAD! ????

  • What are the baking instructions?

Baking instructions are slightly different per product, you can find them on the individual product pages.

  • What tools do I need to bake up your flour blends?

You will need only a very few things that are probably already in your kitchen, but the exact tools depend what you choose to make:

  1. for the (Collagen) Chickpea bread and Charcoal waffled you will need a bowl, a whisk, a loaf pan and parchment paper (omit the latter two if you are making it into waffles, just pour it into your iron),
  2. for Better than Whole Wheat bread you will need a bowl, a handheld mixer, a loaf pan and parchment paper (omit loaf pan if you are baking buns, just shape them with your wet hands),
  3. for the Better than Pretzels / Bagels / Tortilla you will need a bowl, a handheld mixer, a cutting board, a sauce pan filled with hot water, small dish with an egg brush, and parchment paper
  • How do I store your baking blends?

Store them in a dark, dry place at room temperature if you would like to use it within the next few months. Put it to your fridge if you would like to store it longer.

  • How and how long do I store the product once I baked it?

Breads / buns stay fresh on your counter in a paper bag (you can use the one the blend came in) for up to 3 days, and for up to 5 days in your fridge. We love to slice and freeze the amount we know we won’t need. You can just toast it up and they make a quick yet nourishing breakfast.

Waffles / pancakes freeze well too and thaw in just a few hours in a lunch box 😉

Pretzels and bagels are best eaten warm, straight out of the oven.

  • Can I freeze the goodies once I baked them?

Yes, and we do recommend freezing the leftovers! We love having a quick, yet nourishing breakfast from toasted bread with avocados & eggs! You can toast them in your toaster oven or heat both sides in a cast iron skillet if you need them right away or thaw them on your counter top in about 2 hours.

If you prepare a lunch box in the morning just smear toppings on, they will thaw by lunch time.

  • Your products seem to be expensive. Why is that?

We use real, whole food, organic ingredients only. We could use non-organic ingredients to make it cheaper, but we wanted to create a product that is not just allergen free, but is also free of pesticides and all harmful contaminants, and is sustainably farmed. Organic is especially important when it come to chickpeas , as their conventional version is high in a compound called glyphosate that is linked to cancer.

  • Why grain free?

Grains can be difficult to digest and be harsh on our digestive system.

  • Are your products gluten free?

YES, all our blends are gluten free. They do not include any grains – gluten free or gluten full.

  • What allergens do your product contain?

Our products do NOT contain any of the key allergens and are processed in a facility that does not process ANY allergens. If you prefer avoiding eggs (and making it vegan with that choice) you can use the JUST egg product for your baking and it will be just like the egg-y version with perfect consistency and flavor. 

  • Are your products organic?

We use all organic ingredients as we assemble our blends, however we are not certified organic yet.

  • Are your products Paleo?

YES we have one blend for now that is Paleo, our Better than Pretzel blend (that also makes bagels and tortillas). The other blends contain chickpeas that the Paleo diet typically avoids.

  • Are your products vegan?

YES, most of our products are vegan. You can substitute the eggs with a product called JUST egg (1 egg = 3 tbsp JUST egg).

The only product that is not vegan is our Collagen Chickpea Bread. It contains collagen from 4 different animal sources (grass-fed beef, wild-caught snapper, pasture-raised chicken and eggs).

  • Are your products keto?

YES, we have some, but it depends on your choice of carb intake. Our Better than Whole Wheat Bread and Collagen Chickpea Breads have the lowest carb content. They both offer 7grams of net carbs per slice. The Chickpea Bread offers 12grams of net carbs per slice.

  • Are your products nut free?

YES, all our products are free of all nuts and peanuts. The Ginger bread cookie blend contains tiger nuts, which are a legume, not a nut. 😉

  • Do your products have any sugars added?

NO, not a gram! Sugars won’t add any nutrition to our life so we are not using any. The waffles will have a neutral taste that you can dress with maple syrup if you like (or go savory). The Gingerbread cookies have a little natural sweetness from the tiger nut flour and you need to add honey to it to sweeten it. No processed sugar here!

  • Does your baking powder contain corn?

No, our products are 100% grain free so no corn here either!

  • Do you use preservatives, flavorings, colors, extracts, or any artificial ingredients?

No, we pride ourselves in offering a clean product and use only real food ingredients. We do not use any preservatives, colors, (natural of artificial) flavors, extracts, or any other artificial ingredients.

  • Are your products made in the USA?

Yes, we are located in Orlando, Florida. All our products are manufactured in the USA.

  • What are the Nutrition Facts?

Nutrition Facts are listed under the Nutrition tab on each product page.

  • How much carbs and protein are in your breads per slice?

Chickpea Bread has 12 grams of net carbs and 4 grams of protein.

Better than Whole Wheat has 7 grams of net carbs and 4 grams of protein.

Collagen Chickpea has 8 grams of net carbs and 7 gras of protein.

  • Do the chickpea-based blends (Chickpea bread, Better than Whole Wheat, Charcoal waffle) taste like chickpeas?

The Chickpea Bread has a subtle chickpea taste, but it won’t taste like hummus! It is very versatile, can be enjoyed both sweet and savory!

With the Better than Whole Wheat bread, barely anyone has said they taste the chickpea flavor. The sweet potato flour gives a nice earthy, yet sweet flavor that masks the chickpea undertones completely.

Same with the Charcoal Waffle, barely anyone has said they taste the chickpea flavor. The Charcoal neutralizes the chickpea undertones.
