I’ve pretty much been an unstoppable beast with these protein gummies. For the last few months, I’ve been eating my Pumpkin Pie Protein Gummies, but I’ve moved onto a new flavor flav. If you’re a fan of apple pie, you’ll gobble this shit up like a boss. OMG they are so good! Don’t you just love when dessert-y stuff is healthy? Hell yeah, baby.
Your kids are going to flip over these! And SHHHH, don’t tell them that these gummies are healthy!
Protein gummies are the perfect snack for kids and adults! These delicious protein bites also make the ultimate post-workout snack.
I’m not gonna make you wait any longer for this bomb ass recipe. Here you go, my Bs. Have at this deliciousness.
Spiced Apple Protein Gummies
Makes 12 (1.5”) Squares
1 cup applesauce
3 tablespoons Gelatin (Grass-fed is best)
1 1/2 tablespoons Granulated Stevia OR preferred zero calorie sweetener
1 tablespoon Pure Maple Syrup (not the artificial processed crap)
1/2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
Silicone mold OR a 8” x 8” glass baking dish
Note: JIGGLY OR FIRM?
If you want your protein gummies more jiggly, use less gelatin and if you want them harder, use more. The recipe above, IMO, is a little bit on the firm side. This is the consistency my family likes. You can play around with the gelatin amount to get it perfect for you and your clan :)
Note: TYPE OF GELATIN?
I use gelatin from a grass-fed source, because that is the healthiest option. Grass-fed is harder to find in stores though. If you can’t find it in your local health store, you can order it online. This is the gelatin that I use. But you can certainly use the grocery brands as well. They usually come in packets.
1. Combine all ingredients in a small/medium saucepan and heat over low-medium heat to blend flavors and dissolve stevia. Whisk mixture until well blended. DO NOT BOIL. If you can't put your finger into the purée because it's too hot to touch, then it's too hot!
Taste test your mixture to see if it’s sweet enough for you. If not, add more stevia until you reach your preferred sweetness. Each brand of sweetener varies greatly in sweetness. Don't use artificial sweeteners! You'll end up turning an incredibly healthy snack into a very chemical-laden and unhealthy one.
2. IMPORTANT: Put the empty mold inside of a 13” x 9” baking dish (or on a baking sheet) BEFORE you fill them! Because once you fill up the mold, it’ll be impossible to lift it without spilling it everywhere.
3. Put mixture into a pourable measuring cup. This makes it easier to fill your mold cavities, especially if they’re small (this step is unnecessary if using a glass baking dish). Then fill your silicone mold. The mixture can still be warm when you fill your mold. If you’re not using a silicone mold, you can simply spread the mixture into a glass baking dish.
4. Place mold (or glass dish) in the freezer for around 25-35 minutes OR let it set up in fridge for 2-3 hours. I always put mine in the freezer so we can eat them right away.
5. Pop the gummies out of the molds (or cut squares from baking dish). Immediately put the gummies into a sealed container. If you let the gummies sit too long in the molds or baking dish, it'll be harder to get them out later.
The gummies should pop out of the molds like magic. Same with using a baking dish, the squares should easily come out. If your gummies are coming out flaky or leaving residue in the mold as you’re trying to pop them out, then they aren't done setting up yet. Put them back in the fridge/freezer and check them in a little bit.
6. Store in a sealed container in the fridge. Will keep 7-10 days.
