Homemade Fruit Roll Ups – The Healthy Way

Wanting to try something completely different, and healthy, I attempted to make my own fruit roll ups. I loved fruit roll ups as a kid, I couldn’t get enough of them! I mean, really, what’s not to like to about a roll of fruity chewy goodness? Now as an adult I can see what’s not to like about them and that’s the sugar content, high, high, high. So out on a mission to find healthy, good-for-you fruit roll ups I successfully found a not too difficult recipe here a la Pinterest!

This recipe was kind of a process. You have to cook the fruit, mash it, cool it etc. Then bake it, wait for it to cool etc. But at the end of this process you get these awesome and amazingly healthy and homemade fruit roll ups and you know exactly what you put in to them and therefore what you are putting in your body. I don’t know about you but I’m really beginning to like knowing what is in my food and what is going in my body to sustain me. I highly recommend making these and you can use tons of different fruits. I used dried apricots for mine and they came out great. I cut them up, rolled them and bagged them and took them to work with me for an easy healthy snack during the day. I gave one to a coworker and she agreed, they’re great! So go and get cooking and as Julia always said, Bon Appetit!
