Blake's Story

Hi, Blake here. Welcome to Blake's Seed Based! As a company, we make snacks that are healthy, taste great, and are allergy friendly. 

How did we get here? Growing up as an athlete with a deathly nut allergy, I was frustrated with the lack of snacks available. So, I started making bars in my kitchen using seeds instead of nuts and quickly realized that people with and without food allergies loved them. 

Our company motto is #SeedYourPassion. We want you to go out in the world and pursue your passions, without being held back by your snack options. We know you’ll love these bars and we can’t wait to see how you #SeedYourPassion

The idea started in an MBA Social Entrepreneurship Course at Indiana University. Drawing inspiration from Blake's nut allergy, Blake and Alex Marijan got to work in Blake's kitchen creating bars made from seeds that were free from the major allergens. The company was named "Blake's Nut Free".
