Summer is almost over and I’m trying to get back into school mode for snack ideas. I don’t like my son having a lot of sugar so I thought I would try these out. I have to admit they came out pretty good for my first time making them. He’s not a huge blueberry fan, but seemed to like these. The only thing I don’t like is how long the oven has to stay on, so this will be more of a winter project using fruits I have frozen when on sale.
Homemade Naturally Sweetened Blueberry Fruit Roll-Ups
(Adapted from Sugar-Free Mom)
32 ounces frozen blueberries, thawed or 1 pound fresh
1/2 lemon or 1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla liquid stevia or 1 tablespoon honey (I used honey)
Preheat oven to 170 degrees F.
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
If needed to help blender add 2 tablespoons of water.
Pour blueberry juice over a silpat or parchment paper on a baking pan.
Spread evenly about an inch away from edges.
Bake 6-7 hours until it’s no longer sticky when touched.
Cut into strips and roll onto parchment paper. (I put cling wrap on top and bottom then rolled up and cut with scissors.)
Secure with tape, elastic or twine.
