Oh, heavenly goodness! These are a-ma-zing! Like "I can't even describe it, words escape me" good.
They are easy to make. The hardest part is waiting for your pear to be perfectly ripe. :)
Bacon, cooked and cut up.
Pear, cut into squares-ish shapes.
Cinnamon, sprinkled on top.
Eat! Nom! Nom! Nom!
I made homemade gummies for the first time last night after I got my gelatin and silicone mold from Amazon.
The kids loved them. The adults loved them. And they give you a vehicle for the gelatin, which has all sorts of health benefits they say. Bonus! :)
The recipe I used calls for watermelon juice but friends have confirmed you can use any juice. I fresh-squeezed oranges for my first batch. I know someone who buys Odwalla Juice from Whole Foods and uses that.
Because the original recipe has links to everything you need (like the gelatin) plus really great photos, I'm just going to link to that for you:

My kids love this Paleo snack. I love that they are loving this awesome healthy food.
*We use Native Forest brand organic canned coconut milk. It's BPA-free.
As a Paleo mom I'm always looking for snack ideas for my two kids. Now you may laugh at me for calling this a recipe, but I dare you to try this taste sensation and not sing my praises for introducing you to it. I'm still singing my dear friend's praises for teaching me and my children last month. We have since erected a shrine in her honor.
I like the easy Paleo stuff.
