Have you seen the craze on Pinterest for Apple Nachos? Well I sure did and I took heart. I love a twist on the old classic apples and peanut butter. I made these over the weekend and they were gone like hot cakes, and I will say I ate a bunch of them, and, do I feel guilty? Not at all, because 1 whole large apple topped with all these delicious goodies is only about 300 calories. Let me just tell you, if you could eat all of that I can commend you, because I tried and couldn’t!
I love these kinds of snacks. Snacks that taste so good, are good for you, and make you feel like you’re eating dessert. Not only that, but the men in my life gobbled these up, too. DT was less than thrilled to try, but once he tasted them I had to make more, they are so good. Kinda like a caramel apple, meets smores with a crunch.
Ingredients: 2 apples, shredded coconut, almonds, marshmallows, caramel bits, chocolate chips, peanut butter, nutella
I used Braeburn apples, but Honeycrisp, Fiji, Gala, or your favorite apple will do just fine.
Slice very thin and remove seeds.
the toppings can also vary to whatever you like, these are a few of my favorites.
I lined these on my toaster oven tray covered with foil.
Sprinkled on plenty of goodies. About 1-2 Tablespoons of each.
And toasted in my toaster oven for about 2-3 minutes. If you don’t have a toaster oven the oven on broil should work, just watch closely.
Just enough to make everything melted, and gooey.
On the next batch I drizzled peanut butter that I heated. I bet Nutella would be awesome too.
These had peanut butter, shredded coconut, almonds, caramel bits, chocolate chips and marshmallows.
They are so simple and so good. My boys loved them and thought that I was the coolest mom ever.
