Apple Nachos with Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Sauce
I love making this healthy sweet and salty snack for my kids after school but this gluten-free snack can easily be made into a simple dessert to feed a crowd too! Any event, big or small, needs to serve these! They will be the shining star on any table! See the recipe below to make these with either PB2 or a nut butter!

Servings: 2 people
- 2 apples
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 2 Tbsp water
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup PB2 (peanut butter alternative)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips
In a small sauce pan, add the coconut sugar, water, and salt. Heat over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves.
Turn off the burner or remove pan from heat and mix in the PB2 and vanilla extract.
Allow the sauce to cool. It will thicken.
Slice apples and pile them high on a plate or layer them on a platter. Drizzle the sauce over the apples and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
To make this recipe using She's Nuts Nut Butter or regular peanut butter simply add 2 Tbsp of your favorite nut butter in place of the powdered peanut butter. Depending on the brand of nut butter you use, you may want to start with 1/8 tsp of sea salt and add the other 1/8 if you need more "salted" flavor.
Experiment with sprinkling some extra sea salt on top of your nachos if you would like an even greater salty and sweet combination!
