Apple Nachos

By far the BEST girl’s night snack! Healthy finger food to curb any dessert craving! And just as easy as normal nachos!

The great thing about this recipe is that you can really make it your own. If you are allergic to nuts (like my sister) you can omit the almonds, pecans, and peanut butter, and drizzle carmel on top instead. Or if you don’t like coconut (like my husband) you can simply omit the coconut flakes all together!

This really isn’t a recipe that needs to be followed precisely. The lemon juice is simply so the apples won’t brown, and if you don’t like a lot of nuts, you can put as many or as little as you’d prefer. I am leaving all the optional “toppings” in the list below so you can pick and choose which strike your sweet tooth!

Apple Nachos

Apple Nachos

Ingredients

  • 3 crispy and slightly tart apples (honeycrisp is the best!)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp creamy natural peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp runny caramel
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup flaked unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butterscotch chips

Directions

Slice up some apples into wedges. Squeeze a little lemon juice over the apples to keep them from browning too fast.

Melt some peanut butter (in the microwave, or in a pan over the stove works just fine)–until it’s super runny–and drizzle it all over the apples. Next, top the apples and peanut butter with any of the toppings of your choosing (I like chopped almonds and chocolate chips).

And eat up!
