How To Make Gummy Bears Without Gelatin

Agar agar powder is the key ingredient to making gummy bears without gelatin. Rather than using gelatin, my vegan gummy bears recipe uses Agar Agar Powder, which is made from red algae. It has a natural jelly-like consistency and makes for a perfect gelatin substitute.

Keep in mind the texture of these candies is much softer than traditional gummy bears. But they also make for a fun healthy snack for you or kids!

INSTRUCTIONS FOR VEGAN GUMMY BEARS

  1. Start by placing any molds you want to use for your vegan gummier into the freezer to chill them so the candies can set faster.
  2. Blend the fruits/vegetables with apple juice in a blender until smooth.
  3. Strain with a fine-mesh sieve, using a spoon to press the liquid from the pulp.
  4. In a small saucepan, whisk together the strained liquid with sweetener and agar-agar powder.
  5. Bring this to a simmer while stirring constantly. Simmer for 3 minutes while whisking to avoid lumps.
  6. Remove the mixture from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Then, using a dropper (mine came with the molds I bought), fill the molds with the liquid and place it in the fridge for 30 mins to 1 hour.
  7. Remove the candies from the molds and enjoy!

  • Such a simple and easy recipe to follow! I personally didn’t like the texture of the first batch I made(too firm) and halved the agar power when I made it again and they were much softer but still held their shape. Thank you for helping this non-veggie create great treats for my veggie and vegan friends!

  • Can I use brown sugar instead of white?

  • Chewwies says:

    Thanks for sharing this amazing post!

  • Could I put the gummy mix in a flat bottom dish and then into the fridge and skip the molds? Then slice them up once they’ve set?

    • andrew says:

      yes you could do that i would just make sure it’s a dish you can easily get you’re gummy out of

    • Erica Brooks says:

      The texture is very firm, not like a gummy bear. But my kids loved them. I highly recommend if you do the small molds, only making half of the mixture at a time because it sets up really fast and it’s hard to get all the molds full before it sets. Do you might want to half the recipe and then make some, and then if you want more do the other half.

  • These don’t have the same texture as gummy bears, but they’re a nice health snack that does help curb my candy cravings

  • Can Seamoss be used instead of agar agar?

  • I seamoss be used instead of Agar Agar?

  • This is such a fun recipe to make with kids!

  • How can I give them a “shelf life” so I can gift to friends and family? Is that possible with this recipe?

    • I’d say about 5-7 days in the fridge

    • Add potassium sorbate and a tiny bit of citric acid. It makes them last slightly longer, but make sure to keep them away from direct sun. You can also put them in the fridge in an open container, and they will dry out more. But don’t place them in the fridge in a closed container, otherwise the condensation will cause mold.

  • eileen hunter says:

    I just ordered gummy bear molds from amazon and can’t wait to try this!

  • Kevin Bagues says:

    Where did you find the molds? Can you provide a link plz? Also, thanks for the recipe! I’m trying it out today.

  • Laura Manson says:

    For the chewy texture you have to use xanthan gum. I hope you make mint ones. Love your recipe.❤

  • I’m going to try these with Coca-Cola (maybe left out to lose the bubbles). I miss cola gummies!

  • I love how natural these gummy bears are! No artificial flavour or colouring! Kids loved them!

  • Jason M. says:

    Loved it! Might just do this again this weekend for halloween haha

  • These were really fun to make with my kiddos as a healthy treat

  • Can I use water or another juice instead of apple juice? I’m allergic to them 🙂

    • EdgyVeg says:

      You could try something with the same consistency like cranberry juice, but they will be more cranberry flavoured

  • what do u think would happen if coconut oil was added to the recipe 🌲💨

  • Will I still make Coca Cola gummy bear without agar powder!

    • EdgyVeg says:

      The agar gives the gummies have their texture, without it I’m afraid they won’t set

  • Can I still make Coca Cola gummy bear without algae powder!

  • Rebecca says:

    I tried this recipe with 1/2 the agar agar recommened and they were delicious gummy bears. I prefer my gummies soft, not hard.

  • how long do these keep for? and do they have to stay in the fridge?

    • I keep them in the fridge. They last about 3 days but usually get eaten faster than that

  • Would I be able to remove the sugar? I think the gummies would be sweet enough without added sweetener

    • You absolutely can, it will change the texture of the gummies to something softer, so that’s something to keep in mind.

  • Will this recipe work with frozen fruit/berries?
