We’re always on the hunt to expand our horizon when it comes to toppings. And if you’ve ever made a homemade açaí bowl, you know the possibilities are endless. The balance of crunchy granola with the chewy dried fruit is a perfect combo. Today we’re sharing a simple and naturally sweet Dried Pineapple Fruit Leather recipe. Snack or bowl worthy; all you need is a ripe fresh pineapple, a sharp knife, and a little patience.
1 Fresh Pineapple
Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Using a sharp knife, cut off the top crown and bottom of your pineapple. Stand the pineapple up and slice long cuts down to take the skin off the sides. Then lay the pineapple on its side to make as thin of slices as possible. Thinner cuts will allow the pineapple to dry out best. Transfer slices to your baking sheets. Bake until tops look dried, about 30 minutes. Flip slices; bake until completely dried, 30 to 40 minutes more.
These are great naturally sweet snacks and also so good sprinkled on top of açaí bowls for a chewy addition. Refrigerate in an airtight container up to 3 days.
