These Pumpkin Spice Gummies are a quick and easy AIP and paleo Fall treat that are delicious and fun for Halloween or anytime.
Homemade gummies are truly so easy to make with just a few simple ingredients absent of artificial flavors, fillers and food coloring or dyes. I’ve made these using pumpkin molds for Halloween but you can customize them with any molds you like!
Here’s what you need for these Pumpkin Spice Gummies:
pumpkin puree – I used canned puree for simplicity and because of its smoothness – just ensure pumpkin is the only ingredient
full fat coconut milk – as always, you’ll want to make sure it’s additive free and full fat
honey – you can potentially substitute with maple syrup but I haven’t tried myself.
cinnamon, ginger, cloves and mace – the ultimate AIP spice mix. The recipe calls for just a pinch of most of these so as not to be too overpowering.
pure vanilla extract – this adds a subtle flavor that compliments the pumpkin so well
sea salt – this helps balance the flavors and I never make anything sweet without salt 🙂
Making these Pumpkin Spice Gummies is truly a breeze:
- To a small saucepan add pumpkin puree, coconut milk, vanilla extract and honey and heat on medium heat, whisking regularly.
- Once warm, but not boiling, whisk in cinnamon, ginger, cloves and mace and a pinch of sea salt.
- Finally, slowly add in gelatin and whisk to combine until smooth.
- Remove from heat and immediately pour into silicone gummy mold or container of choice (see FAQs below)
- Transfer the molds to the fridge for 1 -2 hours until the gummies harden.
- Remove from molds and enjoy immediately or store in a sealed container in the fridge.
AIP Gummies FAQs
What can I use if I don’t have silicone gummy molds?
I recommend silicone molds so you can easily pop your gummies out once the gelatin hardens. If you can’t find these, you could try using using silicone muffin or cupcake tins or ice trays and then cut them into cubes of your desired size! Alternatively, you can pour the liquid mixture into a large baking tray and then cut out bite-sized squares as your gummies.
How do I store these?
These should be stored in the fridge in a sealed container and are just as good as fresh for 4-5 days.
Can I make these vegan?
Unfortunately, gelatin is necessary here for these to set so it can’t be omitted.
