These healthy apple nachos are sure to satisfy even the strongest sugar craving. Sliced apples are piled high and topped with date caramel, chocolate chips and nuts.
Let’s get into these apple nachos! Remember that date caramel sauce I posted last week? Well these nachos are putting it to good use. They pair together the crisp, tart taste of a fresh apple with the sweet and creamy date caramel sauce to make a healthy snack that is reminiscent of a caramel apple, yet somehow even better!
I honestly don’t know what the best part of this recipe is… its versatility or the fact that the ingredients are truly delicious and come from real ingredients.
apple – one apple, sliced and arranged on your plate so that every piece gets some drizzle!
chocolate chips – I prefer to use Lily’s dark chocolate chips because I find that the bitter taste of the dark chocolate compliments the sweet and saltiness of the caramel perfectly. Cacao nibs would work too.
chopped pecans – any nut will do if you prefer something else and you can also toast the pecans for a more complex flavor!
How to Make Apple Nachos
It’s crazy simple! We’re talking no oven (unless you choose to toast the nuts), minimal dishes and a whole lot of sweet-tooth satisfaction!
The first step is to make the date caramel sauce. Then you’ll go ahead and slice your apple, drizzle on the caramel and finish with a sprinkle of chocolate chips and chopped nuts. It’s that easy.
Add Nut Butter
These apple nachos are delicious on their own, but if you’re feeling nutty, you could try adding a tablespoon of your favorite nut butter (along with the date caramel) for an extra boost of protein! My motto = when in doubt… add nut butter. Almond butter, peanut butter or cashew butter would be delish.
