Gut Friendly Coffee Almond Gummies

I whipped up a batch of coffee almond gummies last weekend. It’s a recipe from Sarah Wilson that I’ve been desperate to make for a while. But since I’ve had quite a few messages asking for the recipe I thought I’d share.

You don’t have to do these in a gummy bear mould by the way, they work just as well in a baking tray and then cut in to squares.

What you’ll need:

1 sachet of gelatine (I used vegetarian friendly gelatine but it doesn’t set as well).

1/3 cup cold water

1 tablespoon rice malt syrup

1/2 cup cold black coffee

1/2 cup almond milk

Method

Mix the gelatine and water together in a cup and let it rest for around 5 minutes.

Heat the rice malt syrup, coffee and almond milk in a small saucepan and then just before boiling point, add the gelatine. Keep mixing as the mixture cools.

Then pour in to a small glass dish or a sweet mould and refrigerate for a couple of hours.

Perfect as an afternoon treat or even breakfast on the go.

I’m going to do a post on gelatine soon as it’s a real super food. Gelatin has been shown to help with digestive issues, to reverse inflammation, soothe joint pain, boost energy, help damaged skin, hair, and nails and so much more.

Have you tried coffee almond squares?

  1. I’ve never tried making my own gum sweets before, I don’t usually buy them either as I can never understand E numbers. I will definitely give something like this a try for my children without the coffee.

      1. ah, I missed that bit, just saw the word geletin and instantly thought animals. I never even knew that there was such a thing a vegetarian geletin. Will have to look out for this, and glad I can now try these gummies out too 🙂

        1. Lol I had to check I actually put it. Most supermarkets do it, I got mine from sainsbury as they do their own brand of it. Also, if you like jelly sweets marks and spencer are good for not using beef/pork geletin x
