Paleo Gummies (Three Flavors: Apple Cinnamon, Pomegranate + Cranberry Orange)
These Paleo Gummies couldn't be easier to make! The three flavors, Pomegranate, Apple Cinnamon, and Cranberry Orange, are flavored with fruit juice and made with gut-healing gelatin for a superfood boost. You can use any flavor of fruit juice you'd like to customize these to your tastes, too!
Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 200 gummies per flavor
In a small saucepan, combine the juice and the maple syrup or honey and heat over medium heat until steaming hot (just before boiling).
Lower the heat to the lowest setting and if using, stir in the cinnamon extract. Whisk in the gelatin one tablespoon at a time, making sure each tablespoon is fully dissolved in the liquid before adding the next.
Once the gelatin is fully dissolved, remove from the heat and use a dropper to put in your gummy molds.
Put in the refrigerator to firm up completely - if your molds are small like my gummy bears, it should only take about 10 to 15 minutes for them to firm up enough to pop out.
If you don’t have enough molds to use all the gummy mixture at once, you can pour the extra into a small pan and cut them into squares, OR you can gently reheat/melt the mixture over low heat when your molds are empty and ready to be used again (I did the second option).
Store the gummies in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Repeat for other flavors!
*Different brands of cinnamon extract can vary in strength. This amount of the extract I used provided a slightly spicy cinnamon flavor. I'd recommend starting with about 3/4 tablespoon, tasting it, and then adding more to your tastes. If you're using pure cinnamon oil, it will be a lot stronger - start with just 1 teaspoon and add to taste.
