I am a huge fan of fruit rolls. I have loved them since I was a child. Now that I am an adult, I look at ingredients on basically everything I buy. I find that the ingredients of store bought fruit rolls are not what I want to be eating, or what I want my little boys to be eating. These homemade fruit rolls are amazing!
I do not add any sugar, because let’s face it fruit already has a ton of sweetness. There are no preservative, they may only last as long as a week in the fridge. I will tell you what though, it may just be a miracle if they are not gobbled up in the first day! If you want to know how to make fruit rolls at home, check out my super easy recipe below.

You can make these in the oven and even in a solar oven. I have been experimenting using both types of ovens.
I love how evenly they cook in the solar oven. I would have to say it is my preferred method. I can’t wait to try other recipes dehydrating more stuff in the solar oven! Do you know how to make fruit rolls? It is easy lets get started!
Homemade fruit rolls recipe:
- 4 cups of fruit – We like to make banana, strawberry fruit rolls
- 2 tsp – lemon juice
Directions: For regular oven and solar oven included!
- Puree fruit in a food processor.
- Preheat oven to lowest temperature, usually 170º F – if using the Sunflair Solar Oven, you can turn it upside down. This helps to keep a lower temperature for dehydrating!
- Cover large baking sheet with parchment paper
- Spread pureed fruit onto parchment paper
- Make sure to spread evenly, or it will not cook evenly and you will end up with some being well done and some not even close.
- If using the Sunflair Solar oven be sure to use the baking rack it elevates the pan to help make sure that there is proper circulation
- Bake for 7-8 hours – this time may vary
- You know it is done when there are no more soft spots or gooey fruit. It should all be solid and dry.
- Pull it out of the oven and set it aside to cool
- Keep the fruit rolls on the parchment paper and use scissors to cut out strips long ways
These should keep in the fridge for about a week. I have not tried freezing them but I am sure they would probably freeze well. They are so good, we just gobble them up immediately!
