Drooling yet? Well you will be after I tell you the AMAZING ingredients in this fun treat. So how do you feel about crunchy sliced apples drizzled with a unique and healthy salted caramel peanut butter sauce topped off with a generous sprinkle of mini chocolate chips?
See, I told you. You are drooling! These Apple Nachos with Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Sauce are the next big thing! Watch out world apple nachos will never be the same!
Let me tell you about the sauce. I mean c’mon, peanut butter and salted caramel coming together in a healthy way….nailed it! As you have come to expect, I used coconut sugar.
I LOVE the stuff!
Along with this unrefined and low glycemic sugar option I added water, sea salt, and vanilla to make the caramel and then added a powdered peanut butter to finish it off.
I started using powdered peanut butter about a year ago and it has become a staple ingredient in so many of my snacks and desserts. It is a nice option to have if you are currently on a weight loss journey and need to watch your calorie intake.
We all know too much peanut butter and our jeans tend to get a little too snug. But by all means if you are not concerned with calories use the real stuff in this sauce!
My favorite nut butter to use in place of powder is none other than She’s Nuts! Cinnamon Cashew Butter.
Wowza, the smooth texture and creaminess of the cashew butter in this caramel sauce is ridiculous! Yum!
I love making this snack for my kids after school, but the original idea come from our friend, Jacey. She served a version of this at a party on a huge platter and everybody went crazy over it!
I think any event, big or small, needs to serve these!
I stack the apples up high like typical nachos for my kid’s snack, but choose to layer them on a platter for guests like the photo below.
This gluten-free snack/dessert can easily be made for one or to feed a crowd! All of our recipes can easily be adjusted by changing the number of servings at the bottom of our ingredient’s list. Well, I’m off to conquer another recipe! Toodles!
