What makes HeidiCakes so special?
👉 IT'S NUTRITIONALLY STACKED! HeidiCakes mix is a good source of plant-based complete protein and fiber. It's also high in calcium, iron, magnesium, and folate. The flours are whole grain and minimally processed, the mix has a low glycemic rating, and we made sure to avoid common allergens and irritants to take away from its wholesome nutrition.
👉 IT TASTES GREAT! Unlike most "healthy" foods, HeidiCakes mix has a delicious light nutty flavor and it can be doctored up from sweet to savory to meet your preference.
👉 IT'S ALLERGEN FREE*. See below for our ingredient promise but know our mix is free from gluten-free, dairy, eggs, tree nuts, corn, peanuts, soy, and many more common allergens and irritants.
👉 IT'S GREAT FUEL FOR ALL ACTIVITIES. You and your family can now be nutritionally prepared to succeed in any activity from running marathons, playing in soccer tournaments, pirouetting in dance class, or climbing Mt St Helens. HeidiCakes doesn't sit heavy in your stomach nor does it cause as sugar crash. Instead, it sustains you for several hours giving you the power to push on and up!
👉 IT'S ECO-FRIENDLY. By using rare ingredients we avoid financially supporting monoculture farming. Monoculture farming negatively impacts our environment and animal populations through soil degradation, higher use of pesticides + fertilizers, decrease in biodiversity, and disruption of pollinators. Our packing is also made from post-consumer recycled material! (Be the change you want to see in the world, right?!)
We take our nutrition seriously. That's why we have the most stringent ingredient promise on the market:
HeidiCakes products will always be free from artificial flavors, stabilizers, dyes, gums, known irritants, and ingredients that lack nutrition and are highly processed.
When we add to our lineup it will add more nutrition and more nutritional variety to your diet. You can count on us to keep you satiated and properly nourished. We promise.

05/ How do you store HeidiCakes?
This is a hot tip: all flours should be stored in your refrigerator or freezer. HeidiCakes is fine on your pantry shelf but will stay fresher longer if kept cold.
06/ Why did you make HeidiCakes?
Heidi here! I have A LOT of food allergies (wheat, oats, corn, rice, eggs, soy, and dairy) and they make breakfast the hardest to figure out. What I missed the most were waffles, pancakes, and avocado toast so I started playing around with what we call "Heidi-approved" ingredients. Once I had a good basic mix it was my husband who perfected the recipe. I am more of a "feel your way through it" kinda gal vs "follow the recipe and measure everything"gal, if you know what I mean. Thanks to his dedication, you and I have a perfected product, and breakfast is tasty again.
