Nothing compares to marshmallow fluff!
Marshmallow fluff is a treat that surpasses most others. With this recipe it’s healthy and nutrient dense. Three simple ingredients and 14 minutes of your time will change your world.
Using local honey, GAPS approved Great Lakes Gelatin (affiliate links), the one in the red can (please note the green container is highly processed more than a GAPS gut can handle. The green package is collagen hydrolysate, is designed to dissolve in cold water, does not gel and is not GAPS approved). To purchase the GAPS approved gelatin click here.
Place 3 Tablespoons of gelatin with 1/2 cup filtered water in a mixer. Mix on med/low setting to stir. Be sure to scrape sides.
While the gelatin and water are mixing put another 1/2 cup water with 1/2 cup local honey into a medium saucepan, heat until roughly 240 degrees. When honey is heated it loses valuable nutritional enzymes. This recipe works just fine if the honey and water is just warmed. If it is heated to the full 240 the marshmallow fluff is perfect every single time, fluffy and airy. If it’s not heated the fluff is hit or miss, sometimes isn’t fluffy but is still good. The choice is yours.
The gelatin and water will first look like this in the mixer. Be sure to scrape the powder down into the mix or it will turn into a glue-like gummy structure along the side wall.
Check your gelatin and water mix. Be careful that it is all mixed thoroughly and that there are no gelatin globule, but it is all mixed into granuals. If there is a globule pillow stuck to the side of the bowl be sure to break it up with a spoon. It should look like this:
Add the hot honey water to the gelatin water slowly with a slow steady stream while the mixer is still mixing. The product is hot so adding it slowly will help keep a marshmallow fluff consistency.
Once the honey water is all added to the water and gelatin mixture turn the mixer to high and continue to mix for ten minutes. If you over mix you will have firm marshmallows that harden rather quickly. If you under mix the product will be more like a thin pudding consistency. This is undermixed:
Store marshmallow fluff in jars or zip top bags for camping.

* Although delicious, marshmallow fluff is not supposed to be a substitute for the healing layout of GAPS nutritional protocol.
- 1 cup filtered water
- 3 tablespoons gelatin (Great Lakes, red/orange cantainer)
- 1/2 cup local honey
- Put 1/2 cup of water in mixer with gelatin. Mix on med low, scraping down the sides. While mixing add the other 1/2 cup water and honey to medium saucepan and heat until reaches a soft boil. Slowly drizzle honey water mixture to water gelatin mixture while mixing. When combined turn mixer to med/high and beat for 10 minutes. This mixture is best right when it's done.
- Pour mixture into ziptop bags and squeeze into shapes on a silpat sheet. This makes perfectly shapes hearts, peeps, bunny heads, candy canes, etc. If you pour the marshmallow fluff onto a silpat sheet and let it air dry for 5 hours you can cut the tray into marshmallows. Roll each marshmallow in coco powder, cinnamon powder or coconut to prevent sticking. If you have a healthy gut and are not concerned about feeding pathogens roll in powdered sugar, arrow root powder or corn starch.
