Apple Nachos

I have a serious affinity for apple nachos. They are not only really simple and fun to make, they are a perfect fall treat! I always get really excited to make them when apples are coming in to season, but really you can make them any old time as apples are almost always available. I will add that they do taste even better with fresh in season apples though, just sayin! We love heading up to Apple Hill this time of the year to our favorite organic apple growers farm to stock up, picking apples in the fall just gives me all the feels!

Apple Nachos

Ingredients

  • 1-2 apples, sliced (preferably organic)
  • 2 tbsp nut/seed butter (used almond)
  • 1-2 tbsp cacao nibs or mini chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp chocolate sauce, I used THIS recipe minus the strawberries & nibs
  • 1 lemon, juiced (optional)
  • a handful of your favorite nuts/seeds (I used pecans)
  • a handful of grain free granola (optional)

Instructions

  1. Slice apples with an apple slicer and toss with enough lemon juice to coat each slice in a large bowl.
  2. Place apples on a plate and arrange how you would like them.
  3. Drizzle apples with desired amount of almond butter or any nut/seed butter of choice. I place mine in a Zip-loc bag with one corner snipped off to drizzle it.
  4. Drizzle apples with chocolate sauce.
  5. Sprinkle with cacao nibs or desired chocolate and nuts/seeds and grain free granola.
  6. You can also add other toppings like raisins or unsweetened coconut shreds, the possibilities are endless!
