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


  1. 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.
  2. 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. 
  3. 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.
