All Natural Fruit Roll-Ups

All Natural Fruit Roll-Ups

The other day I made some of these and they were pretty good, a little on the tart side, so I might add some sweetener next time, like honey. :)

What I did was take some of my homemade applesauce and some strawberries from last years garden that were in my freezer and blended the two together.
I then spread that mixture in a thin layer on the mats that fit inside my dehydrator.
135* for about 8 hours and you have some yummy snacks!
Sorry no pictures this time. I will snap some next time around.

I plan on making some more with applesauce and cinnamon, strawberries and bananas and so on.
Use your imagination and make up some easy, healthy snacks.

  1. Chas - What a great idea! I'm going to have to make some for Liam this morning. We have a ton of applesauce from a bountiful crop 2 years ago. I love making his snacks instead of buying them from the store. I make crackers for him and he loves them. Do you have any other homemade snack recipes?

  2. I was at a Pampered Chef party and they sprinkled strawberry Jello on apple slices - it's very, very tasty. You can also do that before you dehydrate the apple slices .... it would probably taste really good in the fruit roll ups (kind of takes away from the naturalness of them, though).
