{Homemade} fruit roll ups

Thank you Pinterest... I owe you one


2 x 10 oz packages organic frozen berries (blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry or combination - I used frozen blueberries from our trip to the farm)
1/4 cup of agave nectar
Butter for greasing

  • Cut parchment paper to fit and lay into jelly roll pans
  • Grease parchment with butter
  • Defrost berries and place in blender
  • Add agave nectar to berries and blend until well pureed
  • Divide mixture evenly between the two jelly roll pans and spread thin with a rubber spatula

  • Heat oven to 150 degrees (do not heat higher than this or you may cook the fruit as opposed to drying) If you have a convection oven, use this setting to speed up drying process.
  • Place jelly roll pans in 150 degree oven.
When fruit is dry and no longer sticky to the touch (4 1/2-6 1/2 hours for convection oven or 8-12 hours standard oven – depending on the thickness of the puree), remove from oven and cut fruit with parchment still attached into 2″ strips. Roll each strip and place in airtight container.
Hooray for making kid's favorite snacks into healthier versions!
