  • 1-2 medium - large Honey Crisp apples , or apples of choice, washed, cored and cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1/4 cup drippy nut or seed butter or choice , slightly heated so it’s warm and easy to drizzle. We like natural almond butter but cashew butter, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter or tahini would work
  • 2-3 tablespoons dairy-free chocolate chips , we like Pascha's Chocolate, Hu's Gems or Lily's Sweets for a lower sugar option. You can also use cacao nibs or simply leave out the chocolate for Whole30 and use sugar-free dried fruit instead.
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Optional (see post for more)

  • 1 tablespoon slivered almonds or chopped pecans , optional
  • 1 tablespoon if you don't want to use chocolate, you can add some sugar-free raisins, dried cranberries or freeze-dried berries for a pop of color
  • 1 teaspoon hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoons homemade caramel sauce
  • squeeze lemon juice , helps keep the apples from browning.


  1. On a large serving plate, arrange the apple slices in a single layer around the outside edge, then layer another small layer over those but towards the inside center of the plate.

  2. Drizzle the nut butter in a circular motion, from the middle of the plate to the outside edge or zig zag from one side to the other.

Recipe Notes

How to store: You can store leftover caramel apple nachos in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days. The apples may brown slightly. To avoid this, you can squeeze some lemon over the apples to keep them from browning.

To meal prep: Simply cut your apples and layer them in separate airtight containers. Drizzle with nut butter and add your favorite toppings. Store them in the fridge and you can grab one a day to enjoy throughout the week.
