Apple Nachos

Good-for-You Apple Nachos Recipe

Chiquita Bites®: Juicy Green Apples replace tortilla chips in this healthy version of nachos.  



  • 1 (14-ounce) package Chiquita Bites®: Juicy Green Apples
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut bacon
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted


  • Arrange apple slices on a large plate. Drizzle with almond butter. Sprinkle with coconut bacon, raisins, and almonds.

Coconut Bacon Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (not shredded)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Coconut Bacon Instructions:

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Combine the maple syrup, liquid smoke, and soy sauce in a bowl. Add the coconut flakes; stir to coat. Sprinkle with salt. Spread the coconut on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, separating the flakes.
  • Bake for 10 minutes; then turn the pieces over with a spatula. Continue baking for 5 to 8 minutes or until the coconut is dark brown and crispy. Store leftover coconut bacon in a sealed container.


  • To thin the almond butter, warm it in the microwave and stir briskly. Do not add water or any other liquid as it will cause it to turn lumpy.
  • An easy way to drizzle the almond butter is to place it in a resealable sandwich bag and snip the corner.
  • Note: Substitute peanut butter for the almond butter and real bacon for the coconut bacon, if desired.
