These apple nachos are the solution to boring old apple with almond butter. They make a great after-school sweet snack or simple, healthy dessert. They can even be served at a buffet-style dinner or potluck! They’re quick, easy, and healthy – what more could you want in a treat?
1-2 large apples (you can toss them with a little lemon juice to keep them looking fresh)
¼ cup nut butter such as pecan butter or almond butter
2-3 Tbsp raisins or dried cherries
1-2 Tbsp shredded or flaked coconut (I toasted mine for 3 minutes at 350º in the oven)
Optional toppings like diced strawberries, coconut whipped cream, etc. – get creative!
2 oz baker’s chocolate
2 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp maple syrup
To prepare the chocolate sauce:
- Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat over low heat until melted.
- Stir to combine and set aside.
To prepare the nachos:
- Thinly slice the apples, creating the “chips”
- Arrange the sliced apples on a serving plate.
- Drizzle the nut butter over the sliced apples – you can get fancy by transferring the nut butter into a Ziploc bag and snipping the tip to make a piping bag. Then simply pipe the nut butter over the apples.
- Follow by drizzling the chocolate sauce over the apples.
- Finish by sprinkling the raisins and coconut over the apples – serve and enjoy!
