Blueberry Leather Fruit Roll-Ups

This recipe is just in time for blueberry season. If you’re like me, you will be coming home with a bucket or two of blueberries and making jams for the cold winter months. This is one way to do something different with your blueberries. The fruit leather is a rubbery, yummy snack that reminds me a little bit of chewing gum or maybe wine gums. Needless to say, I’m a fan and I hope you will become one too.





2 cups blueberries

1 Tbsp applesauce

2 Tbsp strawberry jam or fresh strawberries blended

1/2 cup powdered sugar or more to taste



Blend your fruit in a food processor together with sugar.

Push the mixture through a sieve to make sure you achieve as much of a smooth texture as possible.


I actually took what was left in the sieve and blended it again in the food processor and then pushed through a sieve again.

I ended up with 3 Tablespoons of seeds.

Spread the fruit on a baking sheet, you’ll need a large baking tray for this.

Put in the oven and set for 50C/120F. This is the lowest my oven will go.


Dry like that for 12 hours or until the leather does not stain your finger anymore and it appears dry.

The leather should behave a bit like rubber and should be easy to peel off the paper.


Cut in strips and roll up. I roll them up together with the paper and each person peels it off the paper as they eat.

These are great for lunchboxes, parties or as a healthy snack.

I keep mine in the fridge until they are gone which is never longer than 2 weeks so I can’t tell you how long they would keep otherwise. 🙂
