UPDATED ALLERGEN INFORMATION:
Are Rule Breaker brownies dairy-free and vegan?
Yes. There are no animal products used in our products and our bakery is CERTIFIED VEGAN by Vegan.Org. However, our products are made on equipment that is also used to make products that contain dairy. But the equipment is thoroughly cleaned before our products are made, according to standards set by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)
What about gluten-free?
Yes. Our bakery is a dedicated, certified gluten-free facility. It's frequently tested and all ingredients used in our products and other products made there are also gluten-free.
What about your oats?
We use gluten-free oats in all our products. Oats are naturally gluten-free, but may come in contact with gluten-containing grains in the field, during storage, or during transportation. Currently, we use Cream Hill Estates oats, which go through a rigorous three-stage verification process to ensure that they are pure and uncontaminated with gluten. Oats from Cream Hill Estates consistently test below or near the test's lower limit of quantification, which is five (5) parts per million.
What about nuts and other allergens?
Rule Breaker Snacks are free from the top 8 most common allergens. Our products contain no peanuts, tree nuts, coconuts, dairy, soy, wheat, fish or shellfish, and nothing containing those ingredients is made in our facility--with the EXCEPTION OF SOY and DAIRY.
The equipment used to make our products is also used to make a product that contains soy and dairy. But the equipment is thoroughly cleaned before our products are made, according to standards set by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)
There is a tiny amount of corn in our baking powder. We are working hard to find a corn-free alternative.
Are your products school-safe?
Yes, because they are free of peanuts and tree nuts, they are perfect for lunch boxes at schools with "No Nuts" policies.
Do your products contain GMOs?
Absolutely not! We are currently in the process of being Non-GMO-certified by the Non-GMO Project.
Are your products kosher?
Yes! We are proud to be certified kosher by the OU (Orthodox Union).

Why bother starting another healthy treats company?
One big reason: many of the so-called "healthy" treats on the market are filled with unhealthy artificial and processed ingredients. We wanted to create goodies that are actually good for you. Rule Breaker products are made from meticulously-sourced, whole food ingredients such as beans, gluten-free oats, maple syrup, unsweetened cocoa, vegan and gluten-free chocolate, and pure flavor extracts. And they taste like the real treats they are.
We also wanted to create a treat that everyone could eat--whether they're vegan, gluten-free, nut-free or have other dietary needs.
Why did you change your name to Rule Breaker Snacks?
Our company was born Pure Genius Provisions. But we were unable to secure a trademark on that name and needed to change it. Yes, we were sad…at first. But then we came up with Rule Breaker Snacks, which fits us even better. After all, to try creating treats from beans, you have to be a baking rebel (or just crazy), and willing to think way outside the usual way of doing things. We love our new name and hope you will too!
We also took the opportunity to improve our product. Based on customer feedback, we realized that our old treats were too much of a good thing. So we shaved off 3/10th of an ounce and tweaked our formula. Now our brownies and blondies weigh in at just 170 calories. But they still contain more than 40% chickpeas, fill you up with 3 grams each of protein and fiber, and are the perfect size for a healthy treat.
Beans in brownies? Are you serious?
Yes! Our brownies and blondies both contain more than 40 percent chickpeas (garbanzo beans). But there's no beany taste. Just lots of protein, fiber, and general goodness. The result: indulgent, invisibly healthy treats you can feel great about.
