The best part about a snack is that it can be prepared very quickly with very few ingredients. These apple nachos are a perfect snack because all you need to do is slice up an apple and sprinkle on your favorite toppings. A drizzle of melted peanut butter (or sunflower butter) finishes it off.

Apple Nachos Ingredients

Apples: You can use your favorite variety of apple. My favorites are Gala and Fuji, but any variety will work well.

Peanut Butter: Again, any variety will work well. If you have nut allergies, feel free to substitute with an alternative like sunflower butter.

Chocolate Chips and Chopped Peanuts: For these toppings, mini chocolate chips work perfectly, but any chocolate will do. And the chopped peanuts can be substituted for cashews, pecans or pistachios or left off entirely.

That’s it! It’s a super simple snack perfect for after school or a mid-morning munch.

Additional Topping Options
