It is extremely rare I make Paleofied “candy” since for me it is just as much, if not more, about breaking old bad habits as eating clean. Nevertheless, I’ve been wanting to try out homemade gelatin gummies ever since I first saw a recipe for it.
The only reason I have not done it before is simply that I have not been able to purchase grass fed gelatin., but now that I just had to give it a try!
If you don not have the habit aspect to battle, grass fed gelatin gummies is a great way to get more gelatin into your diet (if that is a desire). And honestly, these gummies did not trigger any cravings at all for me.
I absolutely found them tasty, but I have a hard time imagining anyone could actually overeat on them because you quickly get satisfied (note: not bored, full, or turned off. Satisfied.)
When I made these gummies I used the ratios and method from Meatified’s Hibiscus Homemade Gummies to make my gummies, but instead of using tea (which I think is genius, and I will definitely try that some other time!) I used some Apple Glögg to get flavor and a little bit of Christmas touch to them, and then I coated them in dark (86%) chocolate. Not bad.
I think they turned out great, but remember they are probably best to be considered a treat since they contain both apple juice and chocolate (and keep the potential habit aspect in mind too if you think that might be an issue).
(On the other hand, like I said earlier it is not the type of treats you stuff your face with so it should not be hard to keep it on a reasonable level…)
If you want to try them out, here is what I did:
