Zemas Madhouse Ancient Wholegrain Gluten-Free Baking Mixes (DISCONTINUED)


Zemas Madhouse Baking Mixes have been discontinued. For other options, see our Dairy-Free Baking Mix Reviews. Some good gluten-free options include 1-2-3 Gluten Free Baking Mixes, Namaste Baking Mixes, and Kinnikinnick Baking Mixes.

Note that I am updating this review as we trial new gluten-free baking mixes from Zemas Madhouse Foods! At a Gluten-Free Allergen-Free Expo, I sampled the wholesome delights of Zemas Madhouse foods for the first time. My friend AndreAnna (who follows a strict gluten-free, and mostly dairy-free diet) was fixated at the Zemas Madhouse table, causing me to inhale at least four or five samples of their Sunbutter & Jelly Bars!

What AndreAnna and I loved most about this company, beyond the fact that their mixes produced very tasty baked goods, was their commitment to using whole food ingredients. Most gluten-free baking mixes are very starchy and primarily packed with “white” flours and/or heavy bean flours, but Zemas Madhouse Foods takes a multigrain approach. Their products use teff, millet, and gluten-free oat flours along with omega-rich seeds like flax, chia, and hemp. Perfect for those of us who like the actual taste and nutrition of grains.

Tasting Notes for Zema’s Madhouse Foods Baking Mixes

Zema’s currently offers 6 varieties Ancient Grain baking mixes, all of which are gluten-free and top 8 allergen-free. So far we’ve only tried the following, but if you’ve given any of these baking mixes a try – let us know what you thought in the comments below!


This mix since transformed into their Cinnamon Oatmeal Apple Muffin Mix, which is likely even more delicious!

Afterwards, I took home a bag of the Cinnamon-Oatmeal Mix made with gluten-free oat flour. I followed the directions on the package for making Cinnamon-Oatmeal Flatbread and the results were quite delicious. Rich with cinnamon, hearty, moist, and quite tender. This was a lightly sweet treat that went well with  nut butter and a mug of hot tea.

Multigran Pancake & Waffle Mix

They actually have three pancake and waffle mixes, but this gem is what I would call “the staple”. Packed with teff, quinoa flakes, flaxseed, hemp, and chia. And it is definitely hearty! Although, they still had a lovely thickness and were perfectly fluffy. The flavor was delicious and “nutty”. I topped it with a maple / nut butter blend for a nutty sweet syrup that wouldn’t overpower.

For those of us who love the taste of whole grains, Zemas Madhouse mixes are a must taste. They work beautifully and have all of the nutty goodness you crave, but without gluten, dairy, or top allergens (eggs or egg replacers are listed as option in the baking instructions).
