Homemade Apple Pumpkin Fruit Roll-Ups


Apple Pumpkin Fruit Roll-Ups

Heather of Poppy Haus is with us today to share a delicious recipe for autumn inspired fruit roll-ups…

We recently started making our own all fruit roll-ups using summer berries and mango.  My boys (and their friends) are crazy for them, and they’ve become a staple in their lunchbox. With the season changing and Halloween on it’s way, I mixed up an autumnal version using pumpkin, apple and a little cinnamon spice. Here’s the recipe…

Ingredients:

  • 1 12.5 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

Cooking tools:

  • 2 sheet pans
  • 2 silicone pan liners
  • A smoothing tool (I use a pie server)

Apple Pumpkin Fruit Roll-upsPreheat oven to its lowest temperature (170 degrees). Combine ingredients in a mixing bowl, dividing mixture onto the sheet pans. Spread until about 1/4” thick, uniform at the edges. Place in the oven and allow to dehydrate over the course of 5-7 hours, until the center is set completely. Turn off the oven and cool to room temperature before peeling back.  Trim the crispy edges, and cut the fruit leather into 6″ squares. Roll up in wax paper, securing with a piece of tape.

Enjoy!
