Apple Nachos & Kid-Friendly Apple Snacks

Although I’m not giving up on Summer JUST yet, the school year is beginning and that means BRAIN FOOD. Brain food along with easy nutritious snacks, crock-pot, make ahead, and 20-minute meals.

The past two week’s of my Healthy Food Friday series with American Express have been focused around all things noted above. No-Bake Powerbites and Mason Jar Lunches, and now featuring the almost in-season, super health fruit… APPLES.
Apple Nachos & Kid-Friendly Apple Snacks
Let’s talk about an easy breezy snack that any member of your family will love. APPLE DESSERT NACHOS. For starters, you can completely customize these. You need apples of course, and then toppings of choice. This is the perfect late night healthy treat, or the perfect after school snack fuel to keep your family going for the rest of the evening.
