Tart Cherry and Plum Gummies

Naturally tart and sweet fruit make this Tart Cherry and Plum Gummies the perfect snack or dessert. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, seafood, nut, egg, and soy free) and suits the autoimmune protocol (AIP), and paleo diets.

Before AIP, I was a bit of a sugar addict. I loved Swedish fish, sour patch kids and gummy bears. I could go on and on about gummy candy. It’s something that I really missed initially but then I started making my own using fruit, gelatin and honey. These Tart Cherry and Plum Gummies are sweet and tart, just what you want in gummies. It’s not overly sugary or artificial like the store-bought kind. It’s just the right amount of sweetness.

These are really easy to make. There are different options for molds. You can either get silicone molds or just use a baking dish and cut the gummies into bite size pieces. If you decide on silicone molds, make sure they are food grade. I used a mold from Amazon, which are no longer available, but there is a huge variety of molds available. I’ve started a nice collection of plastic molds. I’ve got my eye on these lego/robot and diamond molds.

When you’re filling your molds, make sure to not overfill. It makes it hard to transport to the refrigerator, as it’s more likely to spill. It also makes it harder to get them out of the mold once it’s hardened.

If you’re using a silicone mold then it’s important that you place the molds on a stable baking sheet before you fill them with liquid. The liquid is super sticky from the gelatin and sugar so that will help to prevent spills.

Thank you to Stemilt Growers for supplying the fresh cherries for this post.

These Coco-Matcha Truffles are so good. They little coconut, chocolate and matcha clouds just melt in your mouth. They are decadent and are so easy to make. You get your hands a little dirty rolling the dough but you don’t even have to turn on the oven!

Our niece came to stay with us for the week before New Years and she loves to cook and bake with me. I decided to save all my baking so that she that we could do it together. We tried a few different cookie recipes but this Coco-Matcha Truffle recipe stood out. Actually, once we made this recipe no one wanted anything else. We ended up making this recipe three times that week. Seriously, my husband made a desperate coconut cookie run on New Year’s Day, before the stores closed, as we realized that we ran out of truffles. It was actually a ridiculous scene. We had three people frantically calling grocery stores to see who was still open. We scrambled and had more truffles within the hour. They’re that good.

Recipe type: Dessert, Cookies
Cuisine: American, International
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar plus ¼ cup for dusting
  • 2 teaspoons Matcha Powder, divided
  • 2 cups Coconut Cookies (I used Trader Joe’s Coconut Cookies), finely ground
  • ¼ cup Cocoa Powder
  • ½ cup Coconut Milk
Instructions
  1. Mix ¼ cup of powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon match powder
  2. Mix the coconut cookies, cocoa, coconut milk, 1 teaspoon matcha powder and powdered sugar of the ingredients in a medium size bowl.
  3. When the dough is fully mixed and slightly sticky, roll into balls.
  4. Roll the balls in the powdered sugar mixture.
  5. Chill for about 1 hour before serving.
Notes
If you prefer, you can make these cookies in advance and then freeze. To freeze, place balls on a tray in the freezer. After about 1 hour, remove from the freezer, wrap individually or in small batches in plastic wrap, then aluminum foil and then place back in the freezer. When you are ready to serve, thaw in the refrigerator for a few hours.

Also, if you want to keep these cookies vegan or dairy free, make sure that the cookies that you use do not contain any meat or dairy products.

If you can’t find coconut cookies, then Nila Wafers are a great substitute. Just keep in mind that they will alter the flavor somewhat. It was taste less like coconut and more like vanilla.
