When we all ban together, we are stronger and healthier. We know that there is a lot of uncertainty right now, we our families, with our health and with our futures.
We are a small business, who is locally owned, with children of our own who are being quarantined as well. We are feeling that same sense of amazement, nerves, and uncertainty, so in this we are all together as one.
One thing we are certain of, is that we dont need to add one more stress to our lives by not being able to find Gluten Free food on the shelves in stores, and we can not sacrifice our families health by not giving them the food they need to be healthy. We have breads for sandwiches, buns, desserts and mixes. All items are ALWAYS celiac safe.
With the promo code: “Baked” you will receive that $5 off your order.
We will be shipping out on Tues, Wed and Thurs each week to ensure you get your food in a timely manner, and as fresh as possible.
Finally, please remember, as a local gluten free bakery, who specializes in serving your family and their dietary needs, your support and purchases are VITAL to us right now. There are many small businesses that will not make it through this crisis, and we are asking you to consider doing your part in helping to support our business as we face times of uncertainty in the future.
At Mixin’ It Up, you our customers are always are first priority. We always strive to do our best to serve you and your family the best, freshest, and awe inspiring gluten free breads and desserts in Minnesota.

So, give us a call, 320-259-7105 and make sure you are stocked up on your gluten free supplies.
Can one small business make a difference? Do you ever wonder what the impact of small business is on a community? Have you ever stopped to think about what would happen if the spirit of small business faded out in the wake of the Amazon, and instacart world we live in?
I know it feels good to support local, or at least that is what all the ads used to tell us, but how often do you actually stop to think about your buying power, and your ability to support your local businesses. Whether it is a bakery, or some other unique small business that sets your community, your town, your state, apart.
It is not always practical to support local, we know that, but have you ever thought about what your local businesses do the your communities. The vast majority of small businesses support their community. in many different ways, from merchandise donations, to financial contributions we are always looking for ways to give back to the world around us.
We know it takes many stores to make the world go round, and that it takes both local and national stores to help supply your needs and wants. After all my world would not be nearly as happy without a Caribou coffee in one hand and some tasty cupcakes from Mixin’ It Up in the other!
We all have a certain amount of time, and money, and with that we try to do the best we can with what we have. We know that, and that is why we appreciate SO much when you chose us over the national chains! We know you *can* go somewhere else, though it is a mystery as to why one would, it means more than we could say when you do come in and buy food from a local bakery!
As we journey forth being a small business, with our eyes towards the future and our hearts ready for whatever adventure awaits us, we ask you our customers, to please make sure that you are supporting us, your local gluten free bakery.
For so many small businesses, one or two rough months could mean the difference between being here for the long haul or not, We see it all around us again and again as many small businesses shut their doors.
When you add the on additional challenges those of us with food allergies, sensitivities and food sensitive diseases face, it is downright challenging to find safe places to eat to start with and most of those stores who do serve the food allergy community are in fact small local businesses in Minnesota, who do so because they love their community and want people to have a safe place to go and eat.
While we would love it if you would consider putting some of your shopping habits, whether weekly, monthly, or somehow consistently towards shopping with Mixin’ It Up, we ask that in general you would remember that it is the heart of small business who uplifts and supports so many other things in the surrounding communities. So when you are able, if you could, would you consider adding supporting those local Celiac Safe places to your “to -do” lists consistently so we can continue to serve you and your families for many years to come.

When I was little, my great grandma Kit, lived about a block away from us. She was the epitome what all grandmas should be. Adorable, cheerful, and always (and i mean ALWAYS) managing to have fresh baked desserts at her house ready when ever we dropped by, which was often.
My favorite dessert she made, was her apple crisp, fresh out of the oven, and melt in your mouth amazing especially top with a hardy amount of vanilla ice cream! My mouth is watering as I remember!
Oh how I miss those long ago days! One of my most prized possessions still are her recipe cards that I cherish so dearly. While she has been gone a long while, her memory and her spirit of feeding the body and the heart live on.
You may be wondering why I am cruising down memory lane with you, and more importantly what this has to do with our little bakery….
Mixin’ It Up is small local business, whose passion is recreating gluten free food in such a way that you experience those same wonderful nostalgic memories when you bite into any of our yummy creations. We wanted to take that passion one step farther, and create mixes so you can create those same wonderful memories with your children and grandchildren!
There is nothing better than fresh bake brownies or molasses cookies. We have pizza mixes for those of us who love to throw together a little family pizza party, or just making up a quick fun dinner! The recipes are simple to make, and taste wonderful!
Take the time, bake the treats, and embrace those family members. We never know what special things we do the uplift the hearts of others but we do know that it is important to feed the body and soul and we can think of no better way to do so than with brownies!
In a world where life passes us all by to quickly, please take that moment, bake that dessert and give those who around you the tasty and precious memories that last a lifetime!
Things are changing in our beloved little bakery on 2nd Ave. along with all that’s changing in our world right now. We’ve kept our eyes and ears open and taken some inspiration from warriors such as Greta Thunberg and Autumn Peltier. We know how daunting certain issues can be to tackle, especially when those issues take a whole army to succeed in changing; however, that’s always what we’ve been about here.
The future of our little white-walled corner of the universe here is safe and we want younger generations to feel as though their corner of the universe is safe as well. This is what inspires us to make the change to be more environmentally productive. We not only want to reach out our loving hands to the earth, but also to you, our loyal customers.
Here at Mixin’ It Up we’ve put our ideas together and decided we want to offer our customers a benefit when they make the decision to benefit our planet by bringing in their own reusable bags! From here on out any customer that brings in their own bag will receive 10 cents off their purchase!
We know how hard it can be to make the smallest, yet sometimes most impactful changes, especially with the mindset that one person can’t change the world (helloooo isn’t that EXACTLY where change starts?) and we are SO excited to both spread positive improvements as well as see what this has in store for all of our futures here in our own little part of the universe.
With the holidays behind us, we want to take the time to thank you, our customers. The hectic nature of the holidays takes on a little bit of a new life when you’re working in a bakery. The number of smiling faces and warm hearts we get the chance to encounter day-to-day in the store front as well as over the phone is what propels us to be the best hometown bakery we can be. It’s also part of what helps keep a smile on all our faces while trying to navigate a kitchen of chaos and our passionate and kind, yet slightly frazzled, staff. We love to bring our efforts and strengths together, particularly this time of year, to try to make your holiday season the best season it could be. We are so proud of what we do here and feel so blessed to be here for all of you! You make our lives better! Today our team wants to take a moment to thank you all for making OUR season the best possible holiday season it could have been.
