You may be surprised at how easy it is to make fruit rolls. Even the kids can help make them! With only wholesome ingredients, moms definitely approve of these homemade fruit rolls.

The store-bought fruit rolls are loaded with sugar and other preservatives. I don’t add sugar to my recipe. Most fruits have enough sugar to make them sweet enough. The recipe I’m featuring in this post is banana-strawberry rolls. However, you can mix whatever fruit you love and use this recipe to make your very own concoction.

How To Make Fruit Rolls In The Solar Oven

You can make these in the oven and even in a solar oven. I’ve been experimenting using both types of ovens. Who knew it is so easy to make these at home. With little effort, I have been making these and the boys are super excited that they get to have these fun, and healthy snacks again!

I love how evenly they cook in the solar oven. It’s my preferred method. I can’t wait to try other recipes dehydrating more stuff in the solar oven!

How To Make Fruit Rolls In A Dehydrator

I use the Excalibur dehydrator. The steps are really simple and practically the same instructions that I use for the solar oven and the regular oven. Every dehydrator comes with a set of instructions though. It’s probably best you read the manual and see if there are certain presets for making these.

Homemade Fruit Rolls Recipe

Yield: 1
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 7 hours
Finishing Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 7 hours 20 minutes

Made with wholesome ingredients! So easy that even kids can help make fruit rolls!


  • 8 oz strawberry
  • 2 bananas


  1. Puree fruit in a food processor.
  2. Preheat oven or dehydrator to the lowest temperature, usually 170ºF. If using the Sunflair Solar Oven , you can turn the oven upside-down. This helps to keep a lower temperature for dehydrating.
  3. Cover the large baking sheet with parchment paper
  4. Spread pureed fruit onto parchment paper
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Bake for 7-8 hours – this time may vary
  8. You know it is done when there are no more soft spots or gooey fruit. It should all be solid and dry.
  9. Pull it out of the oven and set it aside to cool
  10. Keep the fruit rolls on the parchment paper and use scissors to cut out strips longways


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!

    OMG, fruit rolls at home and the intro to a solar oven – yes please! Totally gonna look into that solar oven, makes total sense. Thanks for sharing!

      Awesome, they taste fantastic. I tried to make just strawberry and it turned out not sweet enough. I also did just banana and it was like eating banana paper. Weird. Anyhow, together they are fabulous. The banana lends sweetness and the strawberries lend a good texture!

  2. This is the first time I’ve seen a solar oven! I think it’s exciting to use something like that, how awesome! I’ve never made fruit rolls before, although I do love the fruit roll-ups candy.

      Oh wow! I am so glad I could introduce you to the solar oven! I really love it. The fruit rolls are so easy to make at home. I can’t believe I ever bought them!

      The solar oven would be too hot inside for them, they would burn up. It is an oven a real oven! You have use pot holders to take out a pan just as you would a pan in a regular oven. We have lots of ants here, and they have never been a problem! I even cooked a s’more pie!

  3. I could not imagine how you were going to make fruit roll in a solar oven. I am thinking sun …something crazy won’t mention. Fruit rolls are my go to snacks lately and your recipe look doable will share.

      I am not really sure what you mean. A solar oven is cooking with the sun! Solar ovens are great for dehydrating!
