Apple Nachos

Apple Nachos recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

A few weeks ago, someone I was talking to mentioned apple nachos and I suddenly had a picture of apple slices drizzled in peanut butter dancing through my head. I googled it and stumbled across a lovely photo of apple nachos at Manifest Vegan. I couldn’t resist making a version of them for my kids while we were at our cabin this past week.

Crisp apple slices are drizzled with melted and gooey peanut butter and then topped with a handful of pecans and just a sprinkling of chocolate and coconut. My kids flipped out over this dessert and talked about it for a couple of days.

Apple Nachos

2 apples, crisp and tart varieties will work best
1/4 cup peanut butter, chunky or creamy will work fine
1/4 cup pecan halves
2 tablespoons chocolate chips
1-2 tablespoons coconut flakes

In a small glass bowl, melt the peanut butter in the microwave until it is smooth and runny. Thinly slice the apples and scatter the pieces across a large plate. Drizzle the melted peanut butter across the slices, top with pecans, chocolate chips and coconut. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

  5. That looks yummy! I may have to give it a try... though I think I'll skip the pecans and the trip to the emergency room.

    I'm actually really glad this recipe turned out to be a dessert like thing... The gears in my head were making a terrible grinding noise as I tried to picture nachos with apples on them!
