For a Gluten Free Life

  • About Mama Jenn's

    Formulated by chef and baker Jennifer Delgado with uncompromising commitment to nutrition, quality and taste, our gluten free flour blend is made with organic whole grains, featuring the nutritional powerhouse Quinoa. Challenged by her customers, who complained of the tasteless, crumbly, styrofoam- like gluten free products on the market, Jennifer knew she had to create something that would satisfy their discriminating palate and deliver solid nutrition. Quinoa fit the bill.
    She says, “I’ve always loved Quinoa. It’s such a generous grain that it showcases any flavor you put with it, and I wanted a flour that would make any of your old favorite recipes. So if you want to make your Grandma’s famous pancakes or your Mom’s prized chocolate cake, they will taste as good as you remember.”
    With her unique combination of passion, creativity and 25 years of culinary experience, Jennifer set about creating the perfect gluten free flour. After months of trial and error, Mama Jenn’s gluten free multi-purpose flour blend was born.
    Not only nourishing -it packs a whopping 3g of protein and 22 g of whole grain in every serving- it is also incredibly easy to use in place of wheat flour. A simple one to one substitution will give you tender, moist cakes and muffins, flaky pie crusts, chewy cookies, and more! Easy, versatile, delicious, and nutritious- it’s Mama Jenn’s.

  • Flatbread

    This makes a thin, chewy flatbread that you can wrap around any kind of sandwich filling. If you spread it out a bit thicker and parbake it for only 8 minutes it becomes a delicious pizza crust.

    This makes one large (approx.10"X12") flatbread.

    INGREDIENTS:
    1 cup Mama Jenn's Gluten Free Multi-purpose Flour Blend
    1TB yeast
    3/4 tsp. salt
    3/4 plus 1TB warm water
    1TB olive oil
    1 1/2 tsp. honey

    DIRECTIONS:
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    In a large mixing bowl blend all dry ingredients. In a separate bowl or liquid measuring cup combine warm water and olive oil. Pour into the dry ingredients. Add honey to mixture and beat until dry ingredients are well incorporated. The batter should be soft and thick ( like thick pancake batter). Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread batter about 1/4 inch thick as consistently as possible into approximately a 10'x12' rectangle. I clip the sides of the parchment down with clothespins or commandeer a kid to help hold the paper down while I spread the batter out. Bake 14-16 minutes. Less brown will be a more flexible bread. Pull parchment off of the back as soon as you take it out of the oven. Let cool on a rack before cutting. These can be made ahead of time, cut into portions and frozen. Just pull out and thaw in a toaster or microwave for 20 seconds and wrap around your favorite sandwich filling.
