I have a confession to make, and as a food writer and cook, this one is a little bit embarrassing. So here goes.

I love fruit snacks.

Like the gummy kind. And I really don’t discriminate. I’ll eat roll-ups, berry-shaped chews and strips in pretty much any flavor, especially strawberry. I love how sweet they are, and the way they stick to your teeth when you chew maybe just a little too much at one time.

But those chewy childhood snacks are usually really bad for you. Like high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils and red 40 bad. That’s why you should make this Cinnamon Apple Fruit Leather from Savory Simple instead!

The writer and photographer behind this passionate food blog is Jennifer, a professionally trained cook and baker. For her homemade and very healthy fruit leather she uses a mixture of gala and honey crisp apples, water, lemon juice, cinnamon and just a touch of sugar, which you could substitute with honey or maple syrup if you’d like.

Make this fruit leather for your family today. Chances are the kids won’t even know these chewy, fruity snacks didn’t come from a box.
