TOTAL TIME :20minutes
  • 1/4 cup grass-fed beef gelatin (link for brand at the bottom)
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder (sub extract, link for brand at bottom)
  • Optional: arrowroot starch for dusting
  • Optional: cocoa powder
  1. *You will need a candy thermometer and a standing mixer or hand mixer for this! Grease an 8 x 8 glass baking pan (or similar sized pan) with coconut oil or line cross-wise with parchment paper.
  2. To your mixer or a glass/stainless steel bowl, add gelatin and 1/2 cup water. Whisk briefly to stir (it will start to congeal right away).
  3. In a small sauce pot, combine maple syrup and 1/2 cup water and bring to a boil. Add candy thermometer. Stir constantly and when mixture reaches 240 degrees F, remove from heat.
  4. Working quickly (but being careful), turn mixture on low and slowly drizzle in boiling mixture. When you've finished adding hot mixture, turn mixer to high. This is fun! When it becomes the consistency of marshmallow fluff with small peaks, add vanilla. Mix until thoroughly incorporated.
  5. Turn "fluff" out into your greased or lined pan and spread as evenly as possible. Allow to set (NOT refrigerated) for at least 3 hours or until springy to touch, and if you pull edges away they bounce back.
  6. Holding closely over a piece of parchment, turn over and shake to loose out of pan (can run a butter knife around the edges first to loosen). Or pull out if you lined dish with parchment.
  7. Cut into desired size marshmallows and dust with arrowroot (for aesthetics and to prevent sticking) or cocoa (because, chocolate). Or neither! Enjoy!
