Frequently Asked Questions

Ingredients

Are all your products suitable for vegans?

Yes! Our products are perfect for someone following a plant-based or vegan diet! We do not use any dairy, eggs, or honey in our products. Additionally, we use vegan sugar.

Please note that while the rainbow sprinkles we use on our sprinkled donuts are listed as vegan approved on the PETA website, the manufacturer defines them as 100% plant-based since they do not use vegan sugar specifically.

Are your products organic? 

No. While we do utilize some organic ingredients, many are not. 

Do your products contain wheat? 

Yes. All of our products contain wheat flour.

A complete list of ingredients can be found on each product page.

Do you use soy based ingredients in your products?

No. We do not use any soy based ingredients in our products (including soy lecithin), however, soy is present in our kitchen at any given time. We do not recommend any of our products to people with serious soy allergies.

A complete list of ingredients can be found on each product mix page.

Do your products contain tree nuts (including coconut)?

Yes. We use powdered coconut milk in all of our mixes. Our German Chocolate Cake donut mix also contains pecans. Some of our donut mixes also include coconut as a topping. 

Additionally, we use both coconut milk and coconut oil in all our fresh baked donuts and cupcakes. Our fresh baked German Chocolate Cake and Maple Pecan donuts also contain pecans and cashews.

Due to the likelihood of cross contamination during production, we do not recommend any of our products to people with serious nut allergies.

A complete list of ingredients can be found on each product page.

Do your products contain palm oil?

Any of our donut mixes that contain rainbow sprinkles contain RSPO Sustainable Certified palm oil. Our chocolate sprinkles also contain palm oil.

All of our fresh baked donuts except German Chocolate Cake and Maple Pecan contain palm oil in the icing. The palm oil is found in the dairy free butter we use for those particular donuts. 

A complete list of ingredients can be found on each product page.

What is the shelf life of your mixes?

Because we do not add preservatives to our donut mixes, we recommend that mixes be used within 90 days of the production date. They can also be frozen if they have not been used within that time frame.

Do you use heat treated flour?

No. We use a high quality all purpose flour that is not heat treated. As such, and in accordance with FDA recommendations, we do not recommend that you consume uncooked batter.

Miscellaneous

Do you have to own a donut pan to make the mixes? 

No! Of course if you want a donut shape then yes but a standard muffin pan will do as well. A standard size muffin pan will yield 6-8 cupcake style donuts. Here in Denver, they are done in 20 minutes. Mixes can also be made in a standard loaf pan and yield 8 servings. Click here for more pan suggestions and baking tips.

Is all of your packaging sustainable?

We have invested a good deal of time seeking out the most eco-friendly packaging options available. Our inner bags with labels are 100% compostable (commercial facility). Our mix boxes are made of 100% recycled content and can be recycled, label and all.

When we ship mixes, we do not purchase any packing paper/filler and instead, reuse anything that we receive when we order ingredients for our mixes. We ship via USPS priority mail using their recyclable boxes and our packaging tape is 100% recyclable.

That being said, there is one piece of packaging that does not currently meet our eco-friendly standards. The direction cards, while recyclable, are not as eco-friendly as we would like. We will continue to seek alternatives and hope to have a better option in the near future.

Cottage Foods Act

What is the Cottage Foods Act?

Squeaky Little Wheel Bakery, LLC operates under Colorado's Cottage Foods Act.

The Cottage Foods Act was designed to allow small food producers to sell to their community and neighbors within the state, directly from their homes.

All foods produced under the Cottage Foods Act must bear the same mandated label that reads:

"This product was produced in a home kitchen that is not subject to state licensure or inspection and that may also process common food allergens such as tree nuts, peanuts, eggs, soy, wheat, milk, fish, and crustacean shellfish. This product is not intended for resale."

Please note, as a 100% plant based kitchen, our kitchen never processes eggs, milk, fish, or crustacean shellfish, however, tree nuts, peanuts, soy, and wheat may be present at any given time.
