Peach Fruit Roll Ups

Aug 21, 2012

I was really excited to find a recipe for "homemade fruit leather" that used the oven and not a food dehydrator.

I have an oven.

Not so much on the food dehydrator.

These would be a perfect after school snack. They taste so much like a store bought fruit roll-ups. Really. You know how all the different flavors of fruit roll-ups taste pretty much the same? That's what these taste like. If you didn't know they were made from peaches you would just say they were fruity and delicious.

Peach Fruit Leather
-recipe from Weelicious

4 ripe skin on peaches
1 tbsp honey

Preheat oven to 225. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Purée peaches and honey in blender or food processor.

Pour onto prepared pan and smooth with a spatula into a rectangle. I used a 15x12 pan and smoothed out with an offset spatula into the 15x11 rectangle the recipe recommends.

Place in oven and cook for 3-4 hours. The finished fruit leathers are dry to the touch and no longer sticky. Store bought fruit leathers are tacky, not sticky...these should be too.

Make sure you keep a close eye on these while cooking the last hour or two. Every oven is different and because all peaches will be at different moisture levels, there isn't really any indication of how runny the purée should be.

Some of the edges on mine dried out and hardened to a crisp. Despite trying really hard to make sure I had spread the purée evenly, obviously it wasn't completely consistent.

Remove from the pan and let cool on the parchment paper. I found it was easiest to use my kitchen shears to cut into desired portions.



  1. How is the pan prepared? Is it just covered with parchment paper? And, can any kind of fruit be used or just peaches? My kids would absolutely love these but peaches aren't a favorite in this house (thanks to

    1. Yes, just parchment paper. In the comments on the original post over at weelicious, some readers had said they had done mango and strawberries. I haven't tried another fruit because I have had such good results with getting my 4 yr old to eat them. FYI, she won't eat peaches either and neither will I....but we both like these. If it wasn't for the smell, I wouldn't be able to place the fruit. I would think that plums and nectarines would work really well as would mango. As long as the consistency was right, you should be fine. I'm trying to think of something similar to the right consistency and I would say mine was like turkey gravy. It poured well, but it did need to be smoothed out. Let me know if other fruits work.
