Apple Nachos.

I told you that I really love apples.

I love them in all forms. Hot, cold, shredded, baked. I even love them in salads. Well, as much as I can love salads that is.

I spied apple nachos in the newest Taste of Home and couldn’t stop thinking about them. I mean, what a perfect snack for me! I get a little chocolate, peanut butter, coconut and salty pecans, but since all of this tops off a giant honeycrisp apple, it has to be healthy. Right? Yep, that’s what I thought too.

I added a little dollop of greek yogurt, which I promptly spread all over the apple and said toppings. How could something so simple boggle my mind like this? Why haven’t I ever made these before?! Have you all been holding out on me?
If you knew about the apple nachos I’m a bit annoyed that you didn’t share.

As I was making these, I decided that I had to sprinkle the entire plate with cinnamon. But then I got caught up in the whirlwind of the peanut butter and chocolate and I forgot the cinnamon! I didn’t even remember it until I looked at these pictures. The veggies must have poisoned my mind.
If you make these you must add some cinnamon. And nutmeg. And even some apple pie spice?

I can’t even concentrate. I need to go make these for breakfast. They were such a treat. Can you tell I’m obsessed? I hope not. I can be a bit insecure.

Looks like things are back to normal around here. Peanut butter, chocolate, coconut… we definitely needed this after those brussels sprouts. Now tell me – what would you add to your apple nachos? I need ideas since this will clearly be a meal for me for the next 6 months.
