New Energy Chew Recipe!
I love making energy chews they are sooo easy! This one has to be about my easiest recipe yet. Check out my video for how to make Grape Energy Chews.
To make these chews just take the following:
- 1/2 Cup Grape Juice
- 50g Coconut Sugar
- 15g Gelatine
Add them all together into a small saucepan and heat them on medium to high heat. Let the mixture boil for 1-2 minutes while stirring and then take it off the heat. Pour the mix into a mould or like me use a silicon baking tray and then cut into cubes once set. Leave in the fridge for 1-2 hours or until the mix becomes solid. Cut into portions and your ready to go!
So whats coconut sugar and why do I like to use it in my chews?
Coconut sugar or coconut palm sugar is made from the sap of the coconut palm that has been extracted, then boiled and dehydrated. Now coconut sugar is still a sugar and although it does contain more vitamins and minerals than white table sugar its not a nutritional superfood. Although I think its better to use than white sugar all sweeteners should be used in small amounts, including coconut sugar. Its not completely refined, bleached and processed like white sugar and it is meant to have a lower glycemic index.
Again its sugar so just because its coconut sugar doesn’t mean we should load our diet up with it. Just in moderation. One of the best things about coconut sugar however is that the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization named coconut palm sugar the most sustainable sweetener in the world in 2014. It also contains no artificial ingredients and is not chemically altered in any way which is great. Buy organic coconut sugar however where you can.
