Crispy fruit rolls

For the healthy vegan, these pastry wrappers are a must! I've only been able to find them at Asian markets, so don't even bother looking for them at a general grocer. Besides, you can find so many cheap, yummy veggies at Asian markets.. you're missing out if you don't go!


These pastry wrappers make super low-calorie, crunchy desserts and snacks - and fast! You can use any of your favorite fruits, or whatever you've got on hand. I'm sure they'll turn out lovely!

For these I used a ripe peach and a large handful of fresh cherries. Wash and slice the peach and slice and de-pit the cherries. Now all you'll need is to open up the pastry package and separate out about a dozen of the pastry sheets. Immediately put the remaining sheets into a sealed container and back into the fridge or freezer.


Now just put a few pieces of each peach and at least 1/2 of a cherry onto each sheet and roll like an egg roll! I didn't even spray these with oil before putting them into the oven but you're welcome to. It'll give them a crispier, more fried-like texture on the outside. But for a light 20 calorie (plus fruit) snack, these plain rolls can't be beat! Seriously.. only 20 calories a sheet!

Put the completed rolls into your oven at 350 for up to 25 minutes. Check them every 10 or so, just to make sure they're not burning accidentally. Keep an eye out for the edges to start browning. That means they're almost done. Remove from the oven before they become too dark.


Voila! Serve with raw agave nectar, maple syrup or your favorite dip. But honestly, these are great on their own.. so no extra dip is necessary. Trust me, you will devour every single one!
