Homemade fruit leather!? All you need is apples, cinnamon and honey to make this super tasty and healthy apple fruit leather! Perfect for lunchboxes or a little afternoon snack!
- 4 cups chopped apples, seeded and cored
- 1 tbsp honey*
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup water
- In a high-powered blender or food processor, combine the chopped apple, honey, ground cinnamon and water. Blend on high until completely pureed and smooth, with no visible chunks remaining.
- Spray the dehydrator trays with nonstick spray**. Spread the puree in a thin layer (about 1/4″) on the trays. Place the prepared trays in the dehydrator and turn the temperature to 140 F. Dry the fruit leather out for 3-4 hours or until no longer sticky to the touch.
- Remove the trays and grab one edge of the fruit leather, then roll it up tightly. Wrap the rolls in plastic wrap individually to store, or place them all in a resealable plastic bag.
The fruit leathers can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 weeks, in the fridge for up to 2 months and in the freezer for up to 6 months.
*If you want to keep these treats vegan, be sure to use maple syrup instead of honey
**You can use the plastic fruit leather trays that came with your dehydrator, or use parchment paper on top of the regular trays. For oven instructions, refer to post above.
