A fun and delicious nachos that’s packed with proteins and nutrients, which you won’t mind feeding to your kids who love nachos. This apple nacho loaded with peanut butter makes for a great after-school snack and ideal to cure your sweet tooth cravings without the guilt!
My kids hate that I give them apples for their school snack box almost every other day and they constantly complain about it. While searching for snacking options on the net, I accidentally landed on something that looked so simple and easy but made me drool. It was apple with peanut butter along with chocolate drizzle and choco chips.
These were called ‘apple nachos’! What a fun name isn’t it!? I couldn’t resist myself from making these healthy yet delicious apple snack for my kids. And trust me both my kids gobbled up a plate full of apple nachos with peanut butter and chocolate (5 apples). I couldn’t be more happier when my kids requested me to make apple and peanut butter nachos time and time again.
Let me describe how incredible this apple snacks taste –
Crisp apple slices drenched in peanut butter and chocolate along with choco chips! Can you picture this – pop a slice of fresh crisp apple drenched in luscious peanut butter and a bit of chocolate drizzle with that bite of choco chips in between! Did that make you drool!?
The saying “apple a day” is going to be a way of healthy indulgence from now on with these apple and peanut butter nachos.
This apple with peanut butter nachos are not your regular ‘average’ nachos. Nachos are supposed to be loaded with chips, cheese and all things that can be bad for your waistline.

How to make apple nachos
Making apple nachos (do you call it apple snack?) can’t be easier than this.
The recipe starts with apples. A combination of Granny smith, Red Gala and Fuji apples. The reason to use mix of apples is each has it’s own texture and taste and you’ll enjoy the variation when you bite through.
Slice up apples. Use mandolin slicer or the 8 piece apple corer.
Take each piece and cut into 2 or 3 slices depending on how thick or thin you like your apple nachos to be.
Squeeze lemon juice over apple slices to prevent it from browning. Do not add too much of it, the apples will have predominant sour taste.
Arrange apple slices on a plate overlapping each other.
In two separate bowls melt dark choco chip with ½ teaspoon coconut oil and peanut butter with honey in microwave. Start with 15 seconds interval. Take out the bowl mix well with spoon and pop back into microwave until melted completely.
Drizzle as much to your hearts content peanut butter and chocolate melt over apple slices.
Sprinkle choco chips and any other toppings like desiccated coconut, seeds and nut of your choice.

Is there another option for the coconut oil when melting the chocolate? I can’t wait to make it… I have all the other ingredients in the house.

If you use chocolate melts most probably you won’t need coconut oil. Coconut oil is optional and I mostly use it while melting chocolate to get smooth shiny melted chocolate.
Wow the plate looks so colorful and so GOOD! I could eat a whole plate right now by myself. I’m such a huge fan of PB + chocolate + fruits.
Thank you Natalie

Thank you Analida. You should try it with chocolate next time
