Apple Cinnamon Gummies

Looking for a sweet treat that is added sugar, dairy and gluten-free that you can make at home? Then give gummies a go! They store well in the fridge, carry them with you as snacks, or pack them in a lunch bag. Good quality grass fed or organic gelatin can be found by buying it online or in specialist grocers/supermarkets. A brand that I often use is Great Lakes Unflavoured Gelatin.

Serves: 5
Serving size: ½ cup

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water (250ml/8.4 fl oz)
  • 1/3 cup coconut cream (80g/2.7 fl oz)
  • 1/3 cup apple sauce/apple puree (110g/3.8oz)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp gelatin (64g/2.2oz)

Directions

  1. Whisk the water, coconut cream, apple sauce and cinnamon in a small saucepan over a low heat
  2. Once the mix is warm but not simmering or boiling, whisk in the gelatin, then remove the saucepan from the heat
  3. Pour this into a square or rectangle baking dish or container (no need to grease or line it) and place it into the fridge
  4. Allow it to cool and become firm to touch (about 2 hours)
  5. Remove it from the fridge and run a knife around the edges to loosen it, then remove the slab and place it on a cutting board
  6. Slice it into small squares and store in the fridge in an airtight container. Enjoy!
