Dish Type: healthy snacks Lifestyle: dairy free, gluten free, raw, vegan, vegetarian

Ingredients

3 cups of chopped fruit (you could use any fruit or your favorite combination of fruit)

Sweetener to taste

Instructions

Note-if you don't have a Silpat baking mat, you can line the baking sheet with parchment paper. You can also use a dehydrator to create these. Follow the instructions provided in the dehydrator manufacturer for fruit leather.

 

1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees F or the lowest temperature your oven will go. Line a 11 x 17 baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat. Set aside.

2. Puree the blueberries and sweetener of your choice in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour fruit mixture onto prepared baking sheet and spread to about a 1/8″ thick. Drop the baking sheet on the counter a few times to make sure the fruit mixture is evenly distributed.

3. Place baking sheet in the oven and bake for 6-8 hours, until pan is set and the center is not tacky. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. Gently peel off the fruit leather from the Silpat. Cut into squares or strips using a pizza cutter, knife, or scissors. If you want to make fruit roll-ups, roll the strips in parchment paper. Store in an air-tight container.
