Low Carb Gummy Worms

Looking for something to satisfy a keto gummy craving? Unfortunately, most store bought sugar free gummy candy just swaps out the sugar for maltitol, a sugar alcohol which can still raise your blood sugar and/or cause an upset stomach in large amounts. There are a small number of low carb gummy bear brands with better sweeteners options, but they can be a little pricy at $3+ per bag.

Instead, try this low carb gummy worm recipe which uses just a few ingredients and a little bit of time to make keto gummies that are a good source of healthy collagen protein while being super low in carbs and calories. Obviously, a gummy worm mold will make them look the most like “the real thing,” but you can also just chill them in a square or rectangular container and then cut into strips.

Easy Low Carb Gummy Worms

Whip up these quick keto gummy worms with just a handful of ingredients. Per serving: 20kcal, 0g fat, 5g protein, <1g net carb.

  • Prep Time: 5m
  • Cook Time: 20m
  • Total Time: 25m
  • Serves: 4
  • Yield: 36-40 gummy worms


  • 1 ~0.6oz package sugar free flavored gelatin mix
  • 2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin powder
  • 3/4 cup boiling water


  1. Combine plain and flavored gelatin powders in a heat-safe container.
  2. Add boiling water, stirring constantly until gelatin is dissolved and mixture is smooth.
  3. Fill gummy worm mold with gelatin mixture. Allow to cool at room temperature for about 5 minutes or until no longer liquid on the surface, then transfer to the refrigerator to set for an additional 15-20 minutes.
  4. Remove keto gummy worms from mold, and transfer to a sealed bag or container. Store refrigerated for up to 3-5 days.


  • If you can’t find “big” (usually around 0.6-0.7oz) boxes of sugar free gelatin mix, just use two small (0.3-0.35oz) boxes instead.
  • If you would prefer to use your own sweetener/flavor, replace the premade sugar free gelatin mix with an additional 2 tablespoons of gelatin and the flavor/sweetener of your choice. Powdered/liquid drink mixes work well for this.
  • For keto gummy worms that are less firm, add an additional 1-2 tablespoons of water.
  • To create opaque worms, replace about 1T of the water with cream.
