I have no clue where I originally saw this idea years ago–but in today’s blogging world, apple nachos have become just about as ubiquitous as raw ballz…
But, there may still be a few folks remaining who aren’t tuned into all the apple nacho hoopla.
If you’ve never tried them, give ‘em a whirl! They are ridiculously easy and taste much more awesome than they sound. Plus, my kids LOVE them as a midday snack. And did I mention how silly easy these are to toss together? Almost as easy as raw ballz. ;)
Obviously this isn’t a recipe–use your imagination and your fave toppings to make THE perfect apple nachos!
I used (to feed 1 1/2 kids and 2 adults):
- 3 crispy and slightly tart apples (we ♥ honeycrisp! yum…)
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 3 tbsp creamy natural peanut butter
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- 1/4 cup pecans
- 1/4 cup flaked unsweetened coconut
- 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
For these, I sliced up some apples thin enough so it would be easy to eat the slice in one or two bites. I also lightly spritzed the apples with lemon juice to keep them from browning too fast.
Then I melted some peanut butter–until it was super runny–and drizzled it all over the apples. Next, I topped the apples and peanut butter with unsweetened flaked coconut, sliced almonds, a few pecans and, of course, chocolate chips. And finally, I drizzled a little more peanut butter onto the plate. Ya know, for good measure.
Couldn’t get much easier! Be sure to eat these with your hands, just like real nachos. :)
