Are any of your products vegan? We have a number of egg free, dairy free options highlighted on our product pages.
Can I add liquid other than water to Mother Hubbard's Mixes? Most certainly! Instead of water, many of our customers have tried different milks (e.g. almond, soy, oat), juices, coffee or teas in their Mother Hubbard's Mixes to create something uniquely theirs. When using tea instead of water, we recommend making the strongest tea possible to ensure the richest flavour.
