Apple Nachos

Fresh and Crisp Skinny Apple Nachos


This is a fast and easy snack or dessert that is always a crowd pleaser. We are big apple lovers in my house so when it’s apple picking time I make this at least once or twice a week. In the spring and summer, it’s a nice change to enjoy while sitting in the backyard with my family.

I put toppings we love on the apples, but go ahead and put your own spin on it — be creative. Just a quick note: that’s my little guy, Josh’s hand in the picture. He just couldn’t wait to grab an apple before I took a picture of the nachos. That’s my cutie pie!


Caramel Apple Nachos

Makes 2 servings


  • 1 large Gala apple, or your favorite type of apple — we love Gala’s because they are sweet and crisp
  • 3 tbsp caramel syrup, coconut nectar or honey
  • 1 tbsp sweetened coconut; you can also toast the coconut for a few minutes in the oven for a nuttier flavor
  • 1 tbsp mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp orange juice – preferably freshly squeezed (optional)



  1. Wash and dry the apple. Slice very thin.
  2. Measure out  syrup or honey and microwave only about 7-10 seconds until warm and runny.
  3. Distribute your sliced apples on the plate and squeeze the lemon or orange juice over the apples.
  4. Drizzle  sauce over the apples and then sprinkle the coconut and mini chips on top.


You can double the recipe by using another large apple and the same ingredients for a bigger portion.

That’s it! Enjoy this healthy snack and crunch away!
