Mission

A family business. A generational love of baking. A new face and a healthy spin on traditional favorites. Unique flavor combinations bringing life to tired classics. Little Miss Muffin has gained national attention, praise and accolades since its inception in 1993. Small beginnings capitalizing on a wildly successful lowfat muffin line. Products were added, changed and introduced as the bakery grew and grew. Today, with low and full fat muffins, cookies, brownies and bars, scones and more, Little Miss Muffin asks, what are you ready to bake?

Our facility welcomes private label, wholesale and contract baking. We are also happy to introduce our Bakery Incubator Program (BIP) where we can mentor your brilliant idea - no matter how half-baked, from scratch to shelf. We would love to answer your questions, show you around, and hear your story... then let's get baking.

History

Take a brother and sister team, an early 1990's dedication to healthful lifestyles, a generational passion for baking, a lot of talent and a twist on classic flavor combinations, and you have the beginnings of a successful  bakery. With the birth of a muffin, Little Miss Muffin bloomed. Introducing a line of low fat muffins, popularity soon expanded well beyond the Chicago market. National attention was drawn, and soon the two grew out of the family space and in to the current facility.

Products were added, full fat muffins, as well as, brownies and bars, cookies, scones, donuts, cupcakes and health and wellness products. Staying true to themselves and to their vision, the sister brother team has taken their baking fame in stride.
