Apple “nachos” are for our sweet tooth readers! We love a regular cheesy nacho moment too, but for this recipe, it’s all about sweetness.
Our apple nacho recipe is a fun way to satisfy your sweet cravings without a major sugar crash. This recipe gets bonus points because it’s completed in 10 minutes (or less) depending on your slicing skills.
Eating an apple in its natural form is good but drizzling with chocolate and peanut butter… better. We like to think of these apple nachos as a sweet but healthier swap for a caramel apple.
According to the macrobiotic diet, whose name is rooted in the Greek words “long life,” apples should be consumed 2-3 times per week! This diet encourages whole foods that are natural and organic with less processed, inflammatory foods. For a full breakdown of what you can eat on this diet (other than apples), check out this article.
This recipe is totally customizable. You can use any kind of apple (green, red, or yellow) and can sprinkle with toppings that look good and make you feel good. If you’re trying to watch your dairy intake, opt for a dairy free chocolate (like we did) and if you’re working with a peanut allergy, try out sunflower butter instead.
You know what they say… an apple a day keeps the doctor away. No one said that the apple couldn’t be decked out in yummy toppings though! Enjoy.
- 1 apple (we used honeycrisp)
- 1 tbsp peanut butter (we used dairy free brand “Enjoy Life” chocolate chips)
- toppings (optional) – coconut flakes, sunflower seeds
Slice your apple into thin, half moon slices
Melt your peanut butter until thin (we used a ramekin in a microwave)
Melt your chocolate in a separate container until smooth (we melted in the microwave. Be cautious not to over cook and burn since this is a small quantity)
Lay your apples out on a tray
Drizzle peanut butter
Add desired toppings and enjoy!
