Apple Nachos

Serves 4

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)

Chocolate sauce

Optional toppings like diced strawberries, coconut whipped cream, etc. – get creative!


Chocolate sauce:

2 oz baker’s chocolate

2 Tbsp coconut oil

2 Tbsp maple syrup


To prepare the chocolate sauce:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat over low heat until melted.
  2. Stir to combine and set aside.


To prepare the nachos:

  1. Thinly slice the apples, creating the “chips”
  2. Arrange the sliced apples on a serving plate.
  3. 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.
  4. Follow by drizzling the chocolate sauce over the apples.
  5. Finish by sprinkling the raisins and coconut over the apples – serve and enjoy!
