Hey! Happy Sunday!

I'm back with another restaurant review post today!

Y'all know how much I love locally owned restaurants. I'm happy to announce that this wonderful gem of a bakery is located about 15 minutes from my house in the lovely town of Sauk Rapids, Minnesota!

I am not gluten free, but I do enjoy all things bakery and couldn't wait to give this place a try!

Owners John and Jessi Brinkman opened Mixin' It Up in Sauk Rapids about a year ago after finding their ideal location.

Jessi started off with her small business Sweet Nature, which is also gluten free and that blossomed into Mixin' It Up.

Jessi's Sweet Nature products can be found at Mixin' It Up, but also at local businesses Central Perk, Good Earth Food Co-op, Liquid Assets and expanding soon to the twin cities!

John and Jessi wished to have a gluten free bakery and wanted to have a rental kitchen available for local gluten free bakers and cooks to rent!

Mixin' It Up currently has about a half dozen regular renters and also one time renters for those who wish to bake Christmas cookies or do their yearly canning in a commercial kitchen!

Why is 100% gluten free so important??

Gluten can remain in the air and ovens in a kitchen, and by only allowing gluten free products to be made in their kitchen, they can truly keep it 100% gluten free!

Mixin' It Up has made over 50 varieties of cupcakes and there is something different available every day. Flavor suggestions are welcome and staff encourages you to pre-order so they have them in stock and ready for you!

You can also special order for grad parties, bachelorette parties, baby showers and holidays!

Mixin' It Up's products aren't just sweets!

In addition to cupcakes, cookies, cakes, cheesecakes, muffins, scones and cinnamon rolls, you can also find slicing breads, hotdog and hamburger buns, pizza crusts and more!

There is also a selection of vegan, paleo and dairy free cupcakes for those with other allergies or special diets.

Customers drive from all over central Minnesota just to visit the bakery and try their amazing treats.

I had some serious deliciousness the day I visited Mixin' It Up!

First up is the Banana Caramel Cupcake!! I'm a huge fan of banana desserts so these cupcakes were right up my alley.

The cupcake had just the right amount of banana flavor and the frosting was to die for. I could seriously eat an entire bowl of the frosting itself!

Plus, I would never even know these cupcakes are gluten free. The taste and texture is spot on!

I also tried the Maple Scone.

This scone screams fall and once again, no difference from a regular scone! I cannot wait to go back and try out some of the other scones they offer.

My favorite is next!

The Grasshopper Cookie! This cookie is pure minty goodness! It has a soft and chewy texture and is the right size for a sweet snack.

The other cupcake I sampled is Mixin' It Up's Toffee Cupcake!

This cupcake was pretty much perfection and I'm not even sure which I liked better, the banana cupcake or this?

Who could forget breakfast?

This is the classic Cinnamon Roll that Mixin' It Up offers.

The texture is much different than a regular cinnamon roll, but it tastes the same and would be great for breakfast with a delicious cup of coffee!

Tons of cinnamon goodness, which I love!
