I started out with this recipe. And my daughter loved them (me too). But my poor son was feeling left out. So since he can’t have corn or cane sugar, I had to figure out a version for him. He can have beet sugar, but of course my daughter can’t, so now we have two Tupperware containers of marshmallows in the house.
First the replacement for Lyle’s Golden Syrup. I used beet sugar in place of cane sugar. This made about 1 ½ c. so I stored the part I didn’t need for later use (it says to store at room temperature).
In the marshmallow recipe, I used tapioca starch, since my son can’t have potato starch. Make sure to shake all the excess out afterwards, so they aren’t too “starchy.” I also added ¼ tsp. corn-free vanilla, for a little more taste.
Since my daughter can’t have beef, I used Great Lakes gelatin, made with pork.
The recipe didn’t say when to add the salt, so I added it in with the water and sugar. I added the vanilla at the end, when I was beating it. I used the wire whip instead of the flat paddle, in my Kitchenaid mixer, and I only beat for 5 minutes.
S’mores without gluten:
Slice a banana in half lengthwise, then cut in half width-wise. Spread one half of banana with peanut butter. Roast a marshmallow over a fire, then put the marshmallow between the peanut butter-banana and a plain banana. Would probably be good if you found a soy-free, dairy-free dark chocolate bar instead of the peanut butter, but I can’t have chocolate, so I wouldn’t know!
Slice Granny Smith apples in flat rounds. Drizzle with caramel sauce (I’m figuring out how to make one with the coconut milk yogurt like I did with the cereal squares), and put the roasted marshmallow in between.
They taste great by themselves and are quite addicting. I liked the ones with the vanilla a little better, otherwise they were pretty much the same. And non-allergy people were amazed because they thought they tasted as good or better than commercial marshmallows.
