Going sugar and grain free has meant being creative to come up with alternatives to snacks that the kids were used to having. One thing the girly always loved was fruit leather. Feeling inspired, I've finally come up with a recipe that is BETTER than what we used to buy.
6 cups of frozen peach slices, thawed (You can use fresh if in season)
1/4 cup of Xylosweet
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Method- Preheat oven to 170 degrees and line two cookie sheets with parchment. In food processor, add peaches and Xylosweet. Blend until a smooth puree. Add spices and incorporate completely. Pour mixture into a heavy saucepan, bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to prevent scorching. Once boiling, reduce heat to simmer and cook for 6-8 minutes, or until thicker than the consistency of baby food. (Think thick applesauce.)
Spoon onto parchment lined trays, dividing evenly into 18 ovals. Don't spread it out, leave it in a thick layer about the size of a lemon.
Using top and bottom racks in oven, bake for two to three hours, then rotate trays and bake an additional two to three hours. When dry and leathery to touch, your peach pie fruit leather is done. Cool on counter, then use scissors to cut the parchment paper apart, dividing into individual portions. Peel off parchment before eating. I store these in a zip top bag in the pantry.
