Pumpkin Apple Fruit Leather
Everyone enjoys their fair share of Halloween candy every year, but it can be nice to have something a little sweet and healthy on hand. Especially if you have children who are begging for candy. Don’t get me wrong, a little candy in moderation is ok, especially if is dark chocolate. But today I am sharing a recipe with you that is healthy, sweet and delicious! Pumpkin apple fruit leather! I used to love fruit leather as a kid, but of course the stuff I bought was loaded with sugar and fake color. Well, this is completely real! It has fiber, veggies, and fruits, and is perfect for this time of the year! You can even cut it into fun shapes with a cookie cutter if you like!

Preheat the oven to 200F degrees. Line 2 sheet pans with foil or parchment. Combine all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. Spread out onto the sheet pans into a thin layer (but not too thin, or it will be crispy and not pliable). a scant 1/8 inch thick is good. Place in the oven and check for doneness after 3 hours. It should not be tacky, dry to the touch, and peel easily from the pan. You do not want to overcook it. Let cool, and peel off of the pans. Either cut into smaller squares, and roll up between parchment, or ut into desired sizes and shapes. Metal cookie cutters are perfect for cutting this, or a pizza cutter.
