SUPER SIMPLE NACHOS
- 2 medium Gala apples (Fuji or Granny Smith would be delicious as well)
- 1/4 cup strawberries
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 2-3 tablespoons shredded coconut (optional-drizzle your favorite peanut butter)
- 2-3 tablespoons granola
- 2-3 tablespoons sliced almonds (optional chopped walnuts)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
Start by slicing the apples – I like to cut them nice and thin. Toss the apple slices with some lemon juice or Fruit Fresh to keep them from turning brown.
Slice the strawberries into bite sized pieces.
Next, melt your chocolate chips with the coconut oil. You can leave the oil out but it makes drizzling the chocolate much easier. Since I don’t have a double boiler I improvise with a pot and a glass bowl. You can also melt chocolate in the microwave but I also end up burning it that way.
A quick note on the chocolate chips – you can get chocolate specifically for melting but I really like to use Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips because they are free of any harmful additives.
Now all you have to do is assemble the nachos! Start with a layer of apples and then drizzle on some chocolate. Continue this process until you use up all the apple slices. Add the strawberries and blueberries and some more chocolate. Top it all off with a sprinkle of granola, coconut, sliced almonds…and of course a little more chocolate 😉
Put the nachos in the fridge to chill for about 30 minutes or until the chocolate hardens. Now dig in and enjoy! These would make a great after school snack for the kiddos (assuming you don’t polish them off yourself before they get home!)
