Recipe: Apple Nachos

Print Friendly

I found this recipe a couple years ago and it’s definitely one of my quick, “go-to” snacks when I want something crunchy, yet sweet! I love making this when we have people over. I even did it one night when my hubby had guys over for a game. Yes–they loved it!

There are so many variations you can have with this and I almost always have these ingredients on hand! When you are dying for your sweet fix at night, try to whip this up instead!

Apple Nachos


♦ 1-4 apples (depending on how many will be eating)

♦ Toppings: (have fun with these!)

- shredded coconut

- chocolate chips

- peanut butter (almond butter etc)

- sliced almonds

- pecans

- anything else!

Thinly slice your apple. (I use a mandoline) Arrange on a large plate. Top with your favorite goodies! (When I use peanut butter or any nut butter, I warm it up a bit and put it in a small baggie, cut the tip and drizzle. You can do the same with chocolate) Place in the fridge if you have added anything warm so that it hardens a bit. Take out and eat like a nacho after 5 minutes or so!

  1. My kids will love this. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This looks really good, I think I might make this for my daughter who’s birthday is coming up. A perfect fall treat that she’ll love.

    What a clever, healthy idea!

  4. How do you keep the apples from turning brown if I want to take it to a party or make ahead ahead of time?

    • I think you can spritz some lemon or lime juice over them to help that. Google it as I don’t know all the details!

      I make mine and eat them right away so I don’t have to worry with it! HA!

      • Thanks. When I am cutting up apples to put in the refrigerator, I usually dip them in pineapple juice and they taste wonderful, but I was afraid that the flavors would conflict with the other flavors i.e. peanut butter and chocolate chips. We take snacks to our home group and it looks like a healthy dish that I could take. I’ll try it with the pineapple and see how it does.

          Whenever I make a fruit platter ahead of time for a party, I always dip the fruit in lemon or lime juice. The fruit doesn’t taste like the juice at all. So in this case, I wouldn’t think it would conflict with the peanut butter or chocolate chips. But I’ve never made this before either.

    Thanks for this recipe! I made them a couple days ago, and they were great. My family loved them.
