Applesauce Fruit Leather Recipe

Satisfy Your Cravings For Something Sweet and Chewy With This Couldn't-Be-Easier Recipe

Enjoy the aroma of apple pie baking in your oven without the floury mess or the hundreds of buttery calories by whipping up a batch of homemade apple cinnamon fruit leather.

This might be one of the easiest snacks you'll ever make, and aside from saving calories, you'll also save money since a fruit leather costs around $0.50 to $0.75 — these are only $0.19 per serving.

You only need a jar of unsweetened applesauce, ground cinnamon, a Silpat silicone baking mat, and an oven. Check out the sweet and chewy 18-calorie recipe below.

Applesauce Fruit Leather Recipe

Ingredients

24-ounce jar of unsweetened organic applesauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Turn the oven on the warm setting, about 150 degrees F.
  2. Place a Silpat silicone mat on a cookie sheet.
  3. Measure out 3/4 cup of applesauce and mix with the cinnamon. Set aside.
  4. Pour the rest of the applesauce on the Silpat, and use a spatula to spread it out into a thin, even layer.
  5. Using a small spoon, draw diagonal lines with the cinnamon applesauce. When you're finished, gently hold the pan with both hands and tap it on the counter to encourage the applesauce to settle.
  6. Place the tray in the oven, and cook on low for six hours or until the applesauce has dried considerably and lost its shine — don't cook too long or you'll have apple chips.
  7. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool for 20 minutes.
  8. Use a knife or kitchen scissors to cut into 16 strips. Store uneaten fruit leathers (if there are any!) in an airtight container.

Would wax paper work as well or is there something special about this mat that does the trick?
