Roll-out of bed for these breakfast roll-ups

Standard

I did some experimentation with fruit leather this week to see how my lovely dehydrator works. I received it last year as a wedding gift and this was its debut in the kitchen.

I started with the fruit because it seemed the simplest to make and I wanted to get a feel for how the machine works before trying more complicated recipes (jerky is on the list!)

I made both a breakfast roll-up which is very filling and can be taken on the go, and some fruit leather for snack.

 

Here’s what I used for the roll-up (this only made two so be sure to double or tipple if you want them to last awhile):

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup diced fruit of your choice ( I chose strawberries and bananas)
  • 1/2 cup thawed orange juice
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder (found in the coffee section of most stores)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1/3 cup of seeds

 

To assemble:

  1. Blend all ingredients except the seeds until smooth and liquidy

  3. Add seeds

  4. Cook at 135 in dehydrator for 12 hours (it will peel from the tray). Roll them up if desired, and enjoy breakfast!

    OK so that was super easy! The other fruit leather I made was even easier. I blended a cup of strawberries with one banana until it was a puree. I added some nuts and coconut and cooked at the same temperature for 10 hours. I recommend checking at eight hours. If it peels off, it’s ready to go.  These ones couldn’t roll because of the coconut topping so I cut them into slices instead:
