Here Is The Full Viral Recipe For Fruit Leather By Blogger Carleigh Bodrug:
- 3 cups berries
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 175F (80 degrees Celsius) and line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat.
- Add all ingredients to a blender and combine until the mixture becomes smooth and velvety.
- Transfer the mixture onto the baking sheet, and using a flat spatula, spread out into a rectangle shape. Ensure the edges are thicker than the center, as they will dry quicker.
- Store rolled in wax paper or parchment as desired.
