- 3 cups of fruit puree (combine any of your favorites)
- 3-4 Tablespoons Honey, Agave, or Sugar (recommended, but optional)
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice (prevents light colored fruit from browning)
- spices, flavoring extract, and or sesame or flax seeds (optional)
1. Puree 3 cups of fruit in a food processor. Add in your favorite sweetener, lemon juice, and any other optional ingredient you choose. (*Note: In the pictures shown here we choose to use apples, blueberries, and honey.)
2. Use a baking silicone mat (preferred), or plastic wrap to cover a large pan. (*Note: The heat is low enough that the plastic wrap will not melt. However, it will shrink a small amount, so be sure to leave about an inch of extra overhang off the pan.)
3. Pour the fruit puree out on the covered pan and use a spatula to spread it evenly across the pan. You will want it to be about 1/8″ thick.
4. Bake in your oven at about 170 degrees for 6-8 hours. This does take a long time to bake, but the great part is if you need to leave and don’t want to leave your oven on, turn off you oven and just pick up where you left off baking when you get back!
5. Bake until the center does not indent when touched by your finger. The edges may get a little crispy, but you can trim those off. If you want to save the edges or feel you may have overcooked the entire batch, brush the batch with a little water to rehydrate until it is pliable again.
6. Remove the sheet of fruit from the pan. Lay it on parchment paper (if you prefer a lining on your fruit roll-up; optional) or a safe cutting surface and begin by trimming the edges off if you prefer clean lines. Then, cut into 1″ strips (including the parchment paper if you choose). Roll them up and secure with a little ribbon, string, tape, or twisty tie.
