Apple Nacho's - adapted recipe from https://www.bitesforfoodies.com/recipes/healthy-apple-nachos/

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 large green apples
  • 2 tbs. extra virgin coconut oil + 1 tbs. dark cocoa powder + 2 tbs. maple¬†syrup (or 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, melted)
  • 3-4 tbs. crushed pecans or nut of choice, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbs. unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)

Heat the coconut oil, maple syrup, and cocoa powder in a small bowl for 25-30 seconds or until melted. Stir until smooth and combined. Cut the apple in slices (peel if desired) 

Arrange the apple slices on a large plate. Drizzle over the chocolate sauce and garnish with coconut flakes, or ingredients of choice. Serve immediately while the chocolate sauce is still warm or set aside for 5-10 minutes until the chocolate sauce hardens. Whichever serving option you choose, they’re both equally delicious!

  • 2 tbs. extra virgin coconut oil + 1 tbs. dark cocoa powder + 2 tbs. maple¬†syrup (or 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, melted)
