Homemade Marshmallows

Grocery store marshmallows are often loaded with processed ingredients, including high-fructose corn syrup.  In this post, I’ll show you a healthier alternative that is SO easy to make and super delicious.

– Water – Real Maple Syrup – Grass-Fed Gelatin Powder – Vanilla Extract – Arrowroot powder/powdered sugar



Homemade Marshmallows

Step 1: Bloom the Gelatin

In the bowl of the stand mixer, pour 3/4 cup water. Sprinkle 30 grams gelatin over the top. Allow it to “bloom” for a few minutes.

Step 2: Add sweetener & vanilla

Pour 8 TB pure maple syrup over the top of the bloomed gelatin. Add a dash of vanilla extract.

Step 3: Add boiling water

Boil 1/2 cup of water. Make sure you have a whisk attachment on. Turn your stand mixer on at a low speed, and pour the boiling water over the mixture as it stirs.

Step 4: Whisk, whisk whisk!

Cover your stand mixer with a towel to prevent too much splatter. Turn the mixer up to high speed. Let it go for 8-10 minutes.

Step 5: Transfer to baking dish

After about 8-10 soft peaks should be forming. Transfer the fluffy marshmallows to a glass baking dish, using a rubber spatula. 

Step 6: Refrigerate

Place the baking pan in the refrigerator to allow the marshmallow mixture to cool and firm up. A few hours or overnight is best.

Step 7: Cut, serve, and store!

Using a very sharp knife, cut the marshmallows into squares. Coat the marshmallows in arrowroot powder or powdered sugar. Store in an airtight container.
