You’ll never buy gummy bears again after trying this healthy gummy bear recipe! With zero refined sugar, these 3-ingredient homemade gummy bears are a terrific treat for you and your kids!


  • 1 cup juice (any flavor, no sugar added)
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup*
  • 4 tbsp plain gelatin


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the juice and syrup to a gentle simmer. Remove the pan from heat and sprinkle the gelatin over the mixture, then whisk thoroughly until combined.
  2. Using a dropper, fill each cavity from your mold with the mixture, filling it to the top. Refrigerate the filled mold for 20 minutes before popping out the gummies. Enjoy immediately, or refrigerate for another time!

Gummies keep best in the fridge, in an airtight container for up to 1 week, but they also hold up fine at room temperature for up to 1 day!


*You can use honey or agave instead of maple syrup, and adjust the sweetening to your liking (1-3 tbsp)
