Easy Blueberry Fruit Leather


  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp orange zest


  • Preheat oven to 225˚F. In blender, purée blueberries, lemon juice, maple syrup, 1 tbsp water and orange zest until smooth. Pour evenly onto parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Spread into thin layer, about 1/8-inch thick.
  • Bake for 6 to 8 hours or until mixture is no longer tacky in the middle and leather is slightly translucent and darkened in color. (If you notice outer edges of fruit leather darkening before center is dried fully, reduce temperature to 200˚F and continue baking).
  • Let cool completely. Cut into 1-inch long strips. Roll up in parchment paper strips if desired. Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
