Healthy Fall Recipe – Apple Nachos

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year! From the pumpkins, to the leaves, to the cooler sweater weather…. and don’t forget about the apple picking! I just can’t seem to get enough of it! As the first days of fall roll in, I’m adding more and more seasonal items to my menu. Apples seem to be the first up on the list.

Apple season is so fun and there are many creative and healthy recipes you can whip up! Apples truly are the most versatile fruit! They can be dried, baked, pickled, juiced or turned into sauces and butter. They’re great in sweet and savory dishes. GO APPLES! One of my favorite ways to eat them, is to make a big ol’ plate of Apple Nachos. Have you ever had them? If not, you are in for a serious treat! It’s a great way to make food fun and it’s super simple!

When making this recipe I like to use organic apples as they usually taste better and are fresher, but while I love that about organic apples, this is not the most compelling reason. The average conventionally grown apple has more pesticide residue on it than any other fruit or vegetable. So if you are going to buy any piece of produce organic, buy apples. In a few weeks I will be sharing some of my favorite places to buy apples in Northern California!

Now let’s get to the GOOD STUFF!

– Drizzle apples with desired amount of almond butter or any nut/seed butter of choice. I place mine in a Zip-loc bag with one corner snipped off to drizzle it.

– Sprinkle with cinnamon, cacao nibs or desired chocolate and pecans/pumpkin seeds. You can also add other toppings like raisins or unsweetened coconut shreds, the possibilities are endless!

Amber - Perfect timing for this recipe! We are going apple picking this weekend!

Janaia - YUM! I literally just finished eating apples and almond butter 2 minutes ago…wish I had seen this earlier so I could have made apple “nachos”. Next time!

Tianna - Thank you! My kids will love this! Have you tried sprouted almond butter? I just had it for the first time, and oh my gosh I am obsessed! I bring it up because it is super runny, so would be perfect for drizzling with a spoon…no bag needed! I’m gonna attempt to make it and I’ll be posting that experience very soon 🙂

Heather - Yum!! I can’t wait to try these!

Kendra - Amber: How fun! Happy apple picking! I hope you love the recipe!

Kendra - Janaia: Hehe! Best combo ever right?! There’s always a next time for apple nachos 😉 My current addiction!

Kendra - Tianna: You’re welcome 😉 I’m so excited to hear how they like it! I’ve had sprouted almonds but not sprouted almond butter! It sounds very addicting hehe! Can’t wait to try it, sounds perfect for drizzling!

Kendra - Heather: It’s a great way to spruce up plain old apples and nut butter 😉 Makes it fun for the kids too, and by kids I mean Matt lol! I hope you love them!

Denise Colby - Thanks for the nacho recipe. My trees are loaded with apples. This recipe came at the perfect time.

Kendra - Denise: You’re very welcome! Lucky you!
