Hiii allll! I hope you’re all having the most amazing day ever. I decided to share one of my favorite snacks in the world. It’s super easy to prepare, full of nutrients, raw, vegan, and packed with protein. So, what’s not to love? You’ll only need 6 ingredients and they are all very affordable 🙂 PLUS… you can spice it up with your on twist. That’s one of the best parts of these tasty treats, you can add your own little bit of fun. These nachos are amazinggg for numerous reasons, including:
Apple: Full of fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants. They fill you up and are delicious!
Cashews: Filled with vitamin K, B6, and E. They also contain selenium, which is amazing for healthy hair. They contain good fats, magnesium, copper and zinc. Make sure you get raw, unsalted cashews.
Pumpkin Seeds: SO GOOD FOR YOUR HAIR. Seriously, if you want beautiful, thick, shiny hair, then eat pumpkin seeds. Make sure they are raw and unsalted.
Unsweetened Coconut Flakes: Good source of iron, fiber, and add a tasty flavor and texture to anything you add it to. Seriously, the amount of things I add coconut flakes to is unreal.
Nut Butter: Nut butter is a great source of protein and good fats. BUT make sure you are getting a good quality nut butter. Read the lables on the back and make sure the only ingredient is some sort of nut. I buy a huge tub of peanut butter from Whole Foods, it’s only like 4.50, AND the only ingredients are dry roasted peanuts. That’s it. On the back of some of the commercial nut butters you will see all sorts of unhealthy oils, chemicals, and a bunch of other crap your body doesn’t need. Don’t fool yourself by thinking you’re eating healthy if you are putting that junk on your apples.
Coconut Nectar: A great sweetener that is low on the glycemic index .
(*This is a serving size for one, that is why the portions are small! Feel free to just wing it and add as much of something as you want!)
-2 Tbs Raw, Unsalted Cashews

–Cut up your apple into bite size chunks and put them on a plate. Drizzle coconut nectar, pumpkin seeds, cashews, shredded coconut over the whole thing. Then, add a dolup of your nut butter in the center. Grab a fork and enjoy 🙂
