Simple steps to make oven dried blueberry fruit roll-ups:

Oven dried blueberry fruit leather is an easy to make, healthy snack.  With just two ingredients, a blender, and some time you can have a naturally sweet snack your whole family will love.

frozen blueberries and an apple for fruit leather

You can make this oven baked blueberry apple fruit leather on either a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet.  Just please do not try making it on plastic wrap, wax paper, or foil!  The plastic and wax paper will likely melt and it is VERY hard to remove the fruit leather from aluminum foil.

When the blueberry fruit leather is finally dry, transfer the parchment paper to a cutting board and cut into strips.  My children like small rolls similar to fruit by the foot, so I cut strips that are a about an inch and a half wide.

Roll-up the dried blueberry leather and pack it up for snack, school lunch, or your next picnic.  And consider doubling the batch (and cooking it on two baking sheets)… this fruit leather will be gone before you know it!

How long can you store homemade fruit leather?

I have stored this fruit leather in an airtight container at room temperature for over a week without any problems.  It can also be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month.  But to be honest, this blueberry fruit leather rarely lasts more than a day or two in our house!

Homemade blueberry fruit leather tips and tricks

  • One cup apple sauce can be used in place of the whole apple (total fiber content will be reduced)
  • A food processor can be used instead of a blender, though blueberry seeds will be present in the fruit leather
  • Do not use aluminum foil, plastic wrap or wax paper!  The blueberry leather will stick to the foil and become very hard to remove.  And plastic wrap and wax paper are not meant for use in the oven
  • A silicone baking sheet can be used instead of parchment paper

I made this recipe and it turned out nothing like the fruit roll you have in your pictures. It didn’t set like yours (it was like very jiggly and thick) and didn’t spread easily . And the end result was not a leather at all. Nobody ate it although it still tasted good. What did I do wrong? Followed the recipe too

Hi Ilknur - If I had to guess what went wrong, I think it might be the size of the baking sheet. I use a large baking sheet that measures 17.5 x 13 inches. If the size of the baking sheet is reduced, the blueberry apple mixture will be thicker and take much longer to dry out into a leather.

I have tons of wild blackberries and blueberries where I live. I'd like to be able to store them until next growing season. If I dry them longer (maybe make chips), will they store for an entire year? I mean, you can buy dried fruit in the store that lasts practically forever! I'm not feeding any kids. I just want to always have nutritious berries in my morning oat flakes.

Hi Lauren,

As long as there is no water in the dried fruit, it should last for a year. I have "lost" these oven dried strawberries in the back of my pantry and they were just as delicious when they were "found" a year later.

I have also had batches of this blueberry fruit leather stay fine in my pantry for several months.

It is worth noting that some of the dried fruit sold in the store is treated with sulfur, as a preservative.

Enjoy your wild blueberries and blackberries!!! What a treat!

This looks amazing! Can't wait to try this for my kiddos. I've never seen blueberry used in fruit strips of gummies.

Thanks Kristen! This is definitely a favorite in our house. I just made four batches for back-to-school snacks... I am hoping they last a week or two. I hope your kiddos enjoy!

yum yum yum! I've never made fruit leather because I always thought I needed a dehydrator. I sure wish I had this recipe back when my kids were little. Have you done this with other fruit?


Tuesday 21st of August 2018

Hi Bernice! I was the same way... so thankful I realized I could make fruit leather and fruit chips in my oven! I have tried raspberries and cherries as substitutes for the blueberries in this fruit leather paper. The raspberries were too tart and the texture of the cherry paper was just off. I also tried it with strawberries but my boys preferred our homemade dried strawberries ( Thanks for reading! Meredith

I am finally making these today! Suggestions for storing leftovers and how long they’ll keep?

Hi Katie - I store the fruit roll-ups in an airtight container either on the counter for up to a week or in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. If you want to store them longer, I can't think of any reason that you couldn't freeze them. Just let the air-tight container come to room temperature before opening it (to prevent condensation on the fruit rolls). I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
