I’ve never really been the biggest fan of raw fruits and have always found it hard to work fruits into my diet consistently. Due to this, I have explored many different methods of using fruits to make healthy snacks and have found that fruit rolls have become one of my favorites.
Just a couple of the many benefits fruits can provide include:
- Fruits are a great source of essential vitamins and minerals, and are also high in fiber.
- They can also provide a range of health-boosting antioxidants.
With just 5-10 minutes of prep time, you can make a tasty and healthy snack that can last you throughout the week.
- 2 cups of pureed fruits such as pears, apples, peaches, etc.
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 4 egg whites or alternative (See note below)
- 3/4 cup muscovado sugar or granulated sugar
- 2/3 cups GFCF flour mix
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon iodized salt
- 1 teaspoon GFCF vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
I try to stay away from food substitutes that are not organic, since they may take away an allergen but can make me reactive due to chemicals. Some of my favorite organic substitutes for recipes that call for egg whites are chia and flax seeds. They typically work great when it comes to baking needs, but may add a bit of a nutty taste.
- 1 egg white = 1/2 tbsp of ground flaxseed + 1 1/2 tbsp water
- 1 egg white = 1 tsp chia seeds + 2 tbsp water
- Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- Oil 15 x 10 inch jelly roll pan. Line with parchment paper.
- Pour fruit puree into the pan, spreading evenly.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon.
- In a large bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer at high speed until foamy. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating until mixture is thick and light.
- In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
- Fold into egg white mixture with vanilla. Gently pour batter over the fruit sauce mixture and spread evenly.
- Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Invert cake, apple sauce side up, onto clean, lint-free dish towel sprinkled with powdered sugar; peel off waxed paper.
- Trim edges of cake. Starting at the narrow end, roll up the cake. Place, seam side down, onto a serving plate. Cool completely. Sprinkle top with powdered sugar. Cut into 10 slices.

I can’t get enough of these fruit rolls. They are such a treat to have at the end of the day, and they’re so easy to make!
So easy & healthy!
I have tried fruit snack recipes before to make some delicious foods, but none of them were as easy as this!
I’m not a mom but me and my mom tried this recipe and this was amazing since my mom doesn’t let me have fruit roll ups or anything that has a lot of sugar, but thank you so much for this recipe!
Wow! You were right, this is a must try recipe. So useful for making snacks for later on and especially for kids, mine absolutely love them!
Can we really use any fruit for this? I would love to incorporate plum if I could.
he fruit taste was not overwhelming, and the roll was really easy to make. Great for snacks or breakfast on the go.
I would recommend it to anyone who needs something sweet but healthy
I know its weird but just throw one in the microwave for a minute and you’re good to go.
Would be improved with some xantham gum or even husk fiber to make it more chewy.
I’ve been eating Fruit Rolls for a couple of months now and I have to be honest, I am starting to grow tired of their taste. It’s not that it’s bad, it tastes okay.
life complete. my favorite!!! didn’t realize they were so easy to make at home!
I was able to make it in just a few minutes and it tasted fantastic! I’ll be saving this recipe for the family and friends.
impressed by their deliciousness and easiness
