FAQs

where are your donuts made and by whom?
They're made locally here in Calgary, by Pooja! You can follow Calgary's own donutier here. This is a side passion project she does, but her main gig is, this. She also has a Podcast Show called The Happiness Approach that you can listen to, here on itunes or here on stitcher or here on spotify.

are your donuts 100% vegan & plant-based?
Yes! Down to every last bit; even the sugars, chocolate, all of it! We use all plant-based, organic and only the highest quality ingredients in our donut babies. 

are they mini donuts or regular size?
They are regular sized! Not mini. I call them my donut "babies" not because they're tiny, but because they're made with a whole lotta' love & care XO

are your donuts gluten-free?
For pop-up events, they are not gluten-free. Those can only be made via special orders or requests but currently not taking on any orders.

but, how do they taste though?
They taste different than fried donuts, in that they are fluffier, moister and softer—think of cake donuts! They're actually more dense and filling than regular fried yeasty donuts, too. Another mega plus, is that they come without that gross bloat-y feeling that fried donuts give ya' and are totally guilt-free and healthy. Every donut is handcrafted to perfection and baked, never fried.

are your donuts nut-free?
They have almond milk in them and some of them have pistachios on top so no, they are not nut-free. Those can also only be made by special requests and orders but currently not taking on any orders.

are your donuts made in small batches?
Yes! They are artisan handcrafted donuts that we make locally here in Calgary! All donuts are made fresh in small batches and with so much ❤!

do you do special orders or catering for parties, events and weddings?
We aren't doing small orders right now but if you would like to place an order of 100 donuts or more, send a message via the contact form here.

what donut flavours do you make? 
All flavours are on our donuts page, here.
You can see pics & vids of the flavours on our instagram, here.

how many calories are your donuts & nutritional info?
Between 200-250 give or take a few cals here n' there. They all range a tad but mostly are around 1-2 g fiber from the flax eggs, 2 g protein, 20ish g sugar (organic golden coconut sugar), and 3-5ish g of fat (good fat from the flax & coconut oil). 

Side note on sugar & 0 calorie additives to enhance flavour and cut out the real stuff: The reason we do not sweeten with 0 calorie sweeteners is because a lot of the time, when you add in 0 calorie things (this goes for 0 fat, 0 etc etc), they come along with a whole lotta' other problems. We keep it real, with real & safe ingredients. There has been a ton of research linking 0 calorie sweeteners to an array of health issues in the academic World so this is why we love our organic coconut sugar to sweeten! Of course, do your own research as a consumer but this is just how we roll. XO

are your donuts soy-free?
yes, 100% soy-free :)

are your donuts cholesterol-free?
yes, anything 100% vegan or plant-based, is! bonus, right?! 

are your donuts yeast-free?
yes, 100% yeast-free :)  

do you use artificial colouring or flavours in your donuts? 
nope! not one bit. 100% artificial colouring & flavour free, baby! :) 

are your donuts fried or deep-fried?
not at all, they're baked (never fried).

why "vegan" or plant-based donuts?
Better for you, better for the animals, better for the Earth ♡ We won't go into it here, there's tons of resources online—we'll leave the research to you! Most people who aren't vegan or plant-based can never tell our donut babies are, either! A win for everyone.

care instructions for your donut babies?
Our donut babies last up to 36 hours on the counter fresh from the time of baking, and then you can pop them in the freezer in ziploc bags for up to 3-5 days (I like to do 3 days max in the freezer). You don't need to put them in the fridge when you get them fresh, they're fine on the counter (you can of course, if you want to)! Once you're ready to eat them, take them out and let them thaw 2-3 hours. They thaw beautifully and taste great still! Of course, as with any baked goods, they're the absolute best fresh. The only thing you may notice, though, is that the glazes tend to seep in a bit into the donut after humidity or temperature changes or depending on how they've been stored or displayed so they may not appear at thick and get absorbed into the donut. This tends to happen with vegan glazes in general :). We doubt you'll need to freeze 'em anyway, because they're usually gone within minutes of box opening XO
