Since y’all love my last fruit leather post so much, I thought I’d make another one for you that is in season!
Here goes, get your pumpkins ready.
Here’s what you will need: one 15-oz can of pumpkin, canned coconut milk, unsweetened applesauce, honey, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground black pepper, nutmeg, and coconut oil.
nutmeg and cloves.
Just like this!
Blend the mixture until supah smooth.
Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice for some “brightness.”
Pour your leather mixture onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Bake in an oven preheated at 170 degrees F for about 6-8 hours on a convection setting. If you don’t have a convection setting it will take longer. If your oven temperature won’t go as low as 170 degrees F then set it as low as it will go and prop the oven door open slightly.
Allow leather to cool completely before cutting into strips.
Brush your leather with a bit of corn starch to keep it from sticking.
You can either roll the strips like so, or…
Put ’em in a box and share them with friends!
You’ll love this one guys + gals, ’tis the season to celebrate pumpkin!

- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
