Apple Nachos!

Pin It

Apple nachos?  HUH!?!  I guess I’ve been living in a cave because supposedly the blogging world have been talking about these for a while now.  I decided to give it a shot!  But… I had no peanut butter or chocolate chips.  We decided just to use some chocolate syrup instead and they were wonderful!! I wanted to make a caramel sauce, there are so many great recipes out there, but I didn’t have any cream either.  I’m going to make sure I get some stuff to make the caramel sauce with too!  I think it would be so yummy with PB, caramel and chocolate syrup! 
The way the lady above made them looks so good too but alas.. I never have that stuff around! (and if I buy it either I or Mad would eat the chocolate chips and nuts before using them in a recipe)

So. here’s an ugly picture of what ours look like, but they were so good and Maddie just loved them!  This is def. a recipe redo!!

Apple Nachos

recipe and top picture from Manifest Vegan

  • 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. :)
