My kids love fruit bars but many of the ones sold in the shops are full of nasties, preservatives and packed with sugar.

These homemade fruit leathers are full of the good stuff – lots of blueberries and no added sugar.


Ingredients (serves 4 | makes 4 )

  • 500g blueberries
  • 1/2 juice of a lemon
  • 1/2 tsp liquid stevia
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp agar agar
  • 1/2 cup water

Method

  1. Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Line a baking tray in cling wrap and pour the blueberry mixture over the top. Spread evenly to the edges.
  2. Place tray in the fridge to cool for at least 2 hours or ideally overnight to set.
  3. Remove from the tray and cut into thin strips.

  • Can you substitute normal olive oil for coconut oil? My kids hate the taste

  • Wow, these look great and looks like a great lunchbox treat for my kids! Thanks for sharing and cant wait to try. I wonder if I can substitute the stevia liquid for honey?

  • I’ll have to look agar agar up – no idea what it is – but these look great.

  • I love how simple and healthy these are. It’s also a very versatile recipe as you could swap the blueberries for almost any other fruit, mango would be yummy!

  • I’m guessing from the ingredients, these are jelly like? In the picture they look like they’ll be biscuit like. My mum made fruit leather and it was the chewy variety
