Why add Gelatin Powder?

One of the easiest ways to stay on top of your supplementation and not perceive it as a huge inconvenience in your everyday life is to simply implement it into your meals.

We can understand how tracking your supplement intake, especially during the holidays, can seem too complicated and time-consuming, which is precisely why you should choose unflavored collagen for cooking.

Not only is making collagen-enriched meals amazing for your health, but gelatin powder can also be used as apretty good thickening agent - which is a must in baking. It is also a great way to increase the protein content of any meal or beverage.

Gelatin contains 18 amino acids, including glycine and proline, which play the main role in collagen structure. Lacking these two amino acids is what results in premature aging - especially skin aging signs such as wrinkles and dryness.

In addition to the skin benefits, gelatin can also promotestrong and healthy bones, help manage joint pain and inflammation, and aid in weight management as it has a satiating effect.

One of the most important gelatin benefits relates to gut health, as supplementing with a high-quality gelatin powder supplement has been shown to enhance gastric acid secretion, improve digestion, and support the gut lining structure.


Stanley Tucci Easter Bread with Amandean Collagen


  • 9large eggs
  • 1/2 cupgranulated sugar
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tspbaking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter (softened)
  • 1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp cream (can be replaced with water or milk)
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 scoops Unflavored Gelatin Powder


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F while you prepare the dough.
  2. Mix 6 eggs with thegranulated sugar and thepure vanilla extract using a mixer on medium speed, until you get a frothy mixture. Add 2 scoops of Unflavored Gelatin Powder to a glass of cool water and let bloom, then mix with eggs, sugar, and vanilla.
  3. Grab alarge bowl and combine 3 cups of all-purpose flour,baking powder, and salt. Once you’ve combined the dry ingredients, add in the butter and start forming the dough using your hands or a fork.
  4. The next step is to combine the flour mixture with theegg mixture to form a soft dough. If needed, add more flour to create a cohesive, flexible dough. The dough should ultimately be dry on the outside, while the inside remains soft and sticky.
  5. Once you’ve formed a soft dough, roll it into a log making sure it is about 2 inches around, and 15 inches long. Make sure to save a 1-inch longpiece of dough for later.
  6. Transfer the log onto a piece ofbaking sheet and form a ring by bringing the ends of the dough together. You also want to make sure the two ends stick together by pinching them.
  7. Take the remaining 3 eggs and place one of them where you pinched the two ends together. The 2 remaining eggs should be pressed into the dough gently.
  8. Take the 1-inch long dough piece you saved and shape it into 6 4-inch-long “ropes”. Using 2 of these ropes for each egg, make an X shape over the eggs. Make sure to press lightly to ensure that the “ropes” are sealed.
  9. Place yourEaster bread into the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until it turnsgolden brown. You can always use the toothpick trick and stick it into the dough to check if it is thoroughly baked - if the toothpick comes out clean, it is time to take the bread out of the oven.
  10. Let the bread cool completely atroom temperature, while you prepare the icing. For the icing, combine cream (water/milk), powdered sugar, lemon juice, and zest. Drizzle the icing over the bread and let it set for 30 minutes before serving it.

Happy collagen baking and Happy Easter from Amandean & Stanley.
