My little men love fruit snacks and fruit rollups. Only problem is that most products that I find on store shelves contain lots of chemicals and dyes. YUCK! So I set out to make my own – I mean, how hard could it be??
Turns out it is SUPER easy and the flavor is incredible!! Who Knew??? I started with a strawberry fruit rollup (aka fruit leather) because we had just returned from the strawberry patch and I had WAY too many strawberries. I doubled the recipe and filled two jelly pans with the strawberry mixture. Only downside – now I’m addicted! Can’t.Stop.Eating.Them!
This recipe is free of the top eight allergens: dairy, soy, egg, peanut, tree nut, gluten/wheat, fish, and shellfish. You’ve got to try this – I promise, you won’t be sorry.
- 2 - 2½ Cups Strawberries, hulled
- ¼ Cup Granulated Sugar
- 1 TBS Fresh Lemon Juice
- Preheat oven to 170°F. Line one 12"x17" rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
- Blend ingredients together until smooth. Pour mixture into the pan and spread with an offset spatula to create an even layer.
- Bake for 3 hours or until leather is no longer sticky. Be sure to rotate the pan 180 degrees half way through baking.
- Transfer the leather to a cutting board to slice. Wrap with parchment paper and store in an airtight container.

Be sure to read all of your labels. I have found many spices and other products (i.e. garlic powder) that include additional ingredients like soy.
