Homemade Sugar Free Gummies Bears
I am totally hooked on these 4-ingredient sugar free gummies. The recipe card has my favourite version of all time. Sugar Free Salted Caramel Cream Gummies! Damn they are so good!
Gummies are very easy to make at home and are a much healthier option than store-bought or jellies containing sugar.

With just 4 ingredients in the base recipe you can use any flavour you prefer to make your gummies.
Salted Caramel Monk Fruit Sweetener – I used the Locako vanilla or salted caramel monk fruit sweetener as both my sweetener and flavour in this recipe. You can use any sweetener or sugar alcohol you prefer. The caramel sweetener is a blend of erythritol, caramel flavour, monk fruit extract and Himalayan rock salt. And, yes it tastes caramelly! It has 90% fewer calories than sugar and is keto, coeliac and diabetic friendly.
Inulin – is a prebiotic and is purely optional.
Pasture Raised Gelatin – To be honest, this is the only brand I have used of unflavored gelatin since it was released. You can use any kind of gelatin you prefer but I find this one does not have an invasive odour or flavour in delicate desserts and keto gummi bears.
How To Make Them
Seriously this is one of the easiest sugar free gummi bears recipes. Even better as they double up as a salted caramel fat bomb too. 7g of fat per serve they are a little “filling” too.
Step 1. add the cream to a small saucepan and stir through the sweetener.
Step 2. sprinkle the gelatin over the top of the cream, but not stir. Leave it for 3-5 minutes for the gelatin to bloom.
Step 3. Cook stirring for 3-5 minutes or until the sweetener and gelatin has dissolved.
Step 4. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a minute. Whisk in inulin and salt. Pour into gummy moulds and refrigerate before removing from moulds. You might find it easier to pop them into the freezer for 10 minutes before removing from their mould.
Flavors & Variations
Jelly flavoured gummies – swap the cream to water and the sweetener to 1 packet of any low sugar (or zero sugar) jello crystals. Add 1.5 tbsp gelatin, 1/2 cup boiling water, 1 teaspoon inulin
Mix all ingredients together and pour into gummy moulds and refrigerate before removing from moulds.
To make a sour sugar free gummy bear simply mix 1/4 cup of powdered erythritol with 1-2 tsp of citric acid. Roll the gummies in the mixture to coat.
