If the fact that these healthy apple nachos are paleo, dairy, and, gluten free doesn’t sell you then maybe their simple 5-minute preparation and absolutely delicious flavour will! Five simple ingredients and five minutes is all you need to prepare this nutritious, decadent snack.
Moms, I know your time is precious and for this reason I challenge you to attempt this recipe. It can’t be any harder than walking over to the pantry, rummaging through the shelves in search of a healthy snack, settling the kids at the table, unwrapping said snack, and pouring a glass of milk. Ok, it might take a few more minutes than that (like 2 minutes!), but the end product is unequivocally better than any packaged food item you might have lingering in the pantry.
This recipe was definitely an impromptu one. My mind was food fantasizing (as it often does) while slicing some apples for afternoon snack. And so, healthy apple nachos were born. And they were so well-received that I confidently confirm that these babies are here to stay!
We couldn’t get enough of these! We love the combination of these particular flavours however, you can add any toppings you’d like, such as;
- sliced or slivered walnuts, almonds, or cashews
- peanut butter or nut butter of choice
- salted or raw pumpkin or sunflower seeds
- melted white chocolate
- caramel sauce
- date paste (fresh dates blended with water and lemon zest)
- fresh berries, such as raspberries or strawberries
- lemon or orange zest
- crumbled cookies or chocolate bars
These healthy apple nachos are an explosion of flavours and textures in every bite-creamy nuts, crunchy chia seeds, sweet coconut flakes, decadent chocolate sauce all smothered over fresh, tart apples. And they’re healthy too, especially if you choose to prepare homemade chocolate sauce. Just blend coconut oil, cocoa powder, and sweetener in a small food processor, and voila! (And there’s the extra minute or two I previously referred to!)
