These homemade AIP Honey Lavender Marshmallows are my new favorite AIP friendly treat. It’s so nice to have an all-natural version of marshmallows. This recipe is flavored with dried lavender and tastes amazing in a hot cup of Earle Grey tea.
A kitchen aid standing mixer is something that I had wanted for years. I finally got one as gift a few years ago and was ecstatic. I ended up going AIP a few months later and stopped baking completely which was a real bummer. The mixer has mostly just sat on our counter collecting dust for the last few years. I was thrilled when I found a recipe that uses it. You can use a hand mixer but you need to have a little more patience to stand there for 10 minutes while the mixer thickens.
This recipe is relatively easy to make but it does require your complete attention. When heating the honey, keep it at a low boil. You don’t want to turn it to burn or boil over the pan. Additionally, you need to watch the liquid as it thickens in the mixer. I once set the timer then let the stand mixer do its job and moved on to something else. When the timer went off and I looked at the bowl, the liquid had gotten too thick. It was difficult to pour and I wasn’t even able to smooth it out in the pan. It was just a giant blob.
These AIP Honey Lavender Marshmallows are homemade and only made with natural ingredients. They contain no refined sugar or chemicals. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, shellfish, nut, egg, and soy free) and suits the autoimmune protocol diet (AIP), and paleo diets.
