Best Ever Apple Nachos

Sliced fresh apples, with a drizzle of peanut butter and honey, topped with a handful of crunchy chocolate peanut butter granola add up to a plate of the best ever Apple Nachos.

Crunchy Apple Nachos are a hit with kids and adults alike!

Apple Nachos

For as long as I can remember, I’ve enjoyed apples for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. What’s not to love about crunchy, sweet, tart apples? Paired with a crunchy peanut butter dip or this honey yogurt dip, they’re a snack everyone loves.

These apple nachos combine the freshness of sliced apples with savory sweet peanut butter and honey and the chewy crunch of granola. They’re satisfyingly filling for a simple meal or a hearty snack.

This time of year, my family can not get too many apples and Meijer consistently has the tastiest apples. I partnered with Meijer a few years ago to share this apple recipe with you and we’ve been making these apple nachos regularly ever since then.

It's easy as can be to make a plate of crunchy apple nachos!

There’s just no end to the sweet and savory ways you can eat apples: apple oatmeals, apple butter, baked apples, apple pancakes, dehydrated apple chips, applesauce, apple cakes, and apple pie bars.

Apple crisps, apple crisp ice cream, green apple smores, apple pies, apple coleslaw, apple salads, and apples roasted with Brussels and bacon. (Side note: if you haven’t tried apples with bacon and Brussels sprouts, you are absolutely missing out!)

Fruit nachos are another delicious way to enjoy apples this fall. Remember the classic cinnamon sugar nachos with berries? I first tried that combination at a friend’s house over 20 years ago and I still can’t resist it. These apple nachos are a fun new twist on those fresh flavors.

Apples with Peanut Butter

For as long as I can remember, at least the past ten years, my boys have been eating apples with scoops of peanut butter as their afternoon snack.

As a result, I’ve played with several different apple dips over the years and it always goes back to peanut butter. Without fail, peanut butter is our favorite apple pairing.

My sister in law made these green apple s’mores for us while we were camping one year and I’m not going to deny that I was a bit skeptical at first. However, the combination of sweetly tart apples, creamy peanut butter, and sweet toasted marshmallows proved completely irresistible.

Easy Apple Nachos

These crunchy Apple Nachos have been a hit with the whole family. The recipe is so simple, the kids can easily make these nachos themselves. This is one of my favorite snacks/lunches these days too.

Choose your favorite apples for this recipe. I like to use a mix of sweet and tart apples, so each slice is a little different.

Apple Nachos Recipe

  1. Combine the peanut butter and honey in a glass bowl and warm it in the microwave. Stir to combine, until it is smooth and pourable.
  2. Slice the apples into wedges and spread the wedges across a large plate or platter.
  3. Drizzle the melted peanut butter and honey across the slices and sprinkle with granola. Serve immediately.
Crunchy Apple Nachos have all the texture and flavor you want in a perfect snack!

Apple Nachos Topping

For these nachos, I used Fuji, Granny Smith, and Honeycrisp apples. In case you haven’t caught on, I enjoy a good bit of tartness in my apples.

Feel free to use your favorite store-bought or homemade granola to make these nachos. I love using this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola for this nachos. 

I actually make our granola in the crockpot (did you know you can do that??) and store it in an airtight container in the pantry until it is gone.

For another fun after school snack, try a handful of old-fashioned GORP!

Crunchy Apple Nachos are an immensely snackable treat.
