Winter Wonders: Loaded Apple Nachos for Two

With only 5 ingredients, this sweet variation on nachos is a great snack or dessert to share with a friend.

Loaded Apple Nachos for Two

A sweet take on nachos with apples?  I'm all in!  I love apples, so when I cam across this Weight Watcher's recipe for apple "nachos" I knew I had to make this right away.  And it's not about being diet food, it's really about healthy food.  Just let me say this is really easy to pull together.  5 ingredients, and about 15 minutes and you have a wonderful dish.  MGG and I had this as a snack and it was gobbled up in no time.

Thinly sliced apples (use your favorite) are arranged on a platter and doused with some softened peanut butter.  Then comes the toppings of mini chocolate chips, sliced almonds, and coconut flakes.  Heaven!  Don't walk, RUN and make this now!  You can thank me later.


What Ingredients do I need?

  • an apple - choose your favorite
  • peanut butter - smooth works best here
  • sliced almonds - make it easy on yourself and buy sliced almonds. I keep them in the house all the time for salads, yogurt toppings etc.
  • mini chocolate chips - for just a hint of chocolate
  • unsweetened coconut flakes  - Bob Mills makes a great product

Substitutions and Variations

  • try pear nachos
  • drizzle on a different nut butter, almond or cashew are good choices
  • Shaved chocolate works instead of chips
  • sprinkle on some granola

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • Watch the almonds closely when toasting, they burn quickly.
  • Microwave the peanut butter in 30 second increments until pourable.  Watch closely.
  • Don't let the sliced apples sit too long or they will turn brown.
