Healthy Hacks: Switch up this Apple Nachos recipe with your favorite healthy toppings!

  • Not a fan of almond butter? Try it with peanut butter or cashew butter.
  • Don’t like pecans? You can swap in slivered almonds, chopped walnuts, cashews and even pistachios.
  • Feel free to also use a different dried or fresh fruit that you enjoy. Blueberries, sliced strawberries or bananas would be great!
  • Other additions include unsweetened coconut flakes, seeds, melted chocolate (try using your NutriChocolaty Wafers!), honey, granola (like Nutrisystem’s Granola Cereal or Chocolate And Hazelnut Flavored Granola!), cinnamon, low-fat yogurt, white chocolate chips or fat-free whipped topping.
