Apple Nachos: My New Favorite Snack

31days.2Searching gluten-free blogs I recently found multiple mentions of Apple Nachos. Obviously not so new to the gluten-free scene, but they are new to me with my own twist.

This is all you need for a delicious snack. Notice all these products are healthy, even reduced fat peanut butter.IMG_0648

And here is the recipe.

1 crisp apple

3 T. peanut butter

1 T. caramel syrup (look for it at Big Lots)

1/4 c. walnuts

1/4 c. raisins

Slice the apple thinly and spread out in one layer. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Heat up peanut butter in microwave about 45 seconds. Stir to smooth out and add caramel syrup. Spread peanut butter on each slice of apple. (Original recipe says drizzle, but mine is thicker and doesn’t drizzle.)

Sprinkle walnuts and raisins over all.

Eat with a fork if you want to do this neatly!

What a quick after-Wednesday night church snack especially for those of us who cannot run into the Dollar General Store or any other quick stop store and grab a candy bar or a package of cookies! The only risk-free snack I can get is marshmallows, but I’ll share my tips with them in another post.applenachos

Thankful for apples, walnuts, raisins, peanut butter, and caramel syrup — reminding me of caramel apples, a fall favorite, but not dairy-free!
