Superbowl Snacks: Apple Pie Nachos
There are no chips involved in this dish. Nothing really THAT crispy. And you eat these with a fork. Well I guess you don’t have to, but sh*t would get messy. So really, these are nothing like nachos. But they caught your attention, didn’t they? Please keep reading, I’m sorry I’m an asshole. This dish should definitely be considered your dessert for your party. You could also make some fudgy brownies, or fig fudge balls, or chocolate coconut bark to satisfy your big game day guests. They will never know it’s paleo. And if they don’t like them, you have sh*tty friends. It’s just fact.
So I’ve figured something out. I often think about the many traits a man must have for me to pay any attention to him. Obviously, Colorado men are lacking these traits since I haven’t noticed any yet…or is it they haven’t noticed me? Sh*t, I think I just burned myself. Anywho, I’ve figured out that among these many traits, one is vastly important. A man’s smell. I want the man I fall in love with to smell like Gain detergent. Plain and simple. I’m not even kidding. I’m exactly like the commercials. I just bought some today and sat by the washing machine just smelling the detergent before I poured it on in. That can’t be healthy. But really, I don’t care about cologne, I’m cool with the smell of sweat, but if a man walks by me and smells like clean laundry, my heart skips a beat. I can’t wait to meet my laundry smelling, crossfitting, food loving man. Jesus, I need to go on a date.
It’s going to snow tonight in Colorado. I’m sad. I was running in shorts and a tank top just the other day, proudly showing my pale legs to any unforgiving eye, and now I must cover up. Put on my fake Ugg boots because I sure as hell ain’t paying $200 to walk in puddles. And wear a couple sweaters that I’m just going to sweat through since I seem to sweat even when cold. Damn you Colorado. Damn you armpits. Damn you.Print

I’m really beginning to picture you looking constantly moist with all your talk about sweat.
Not that glistening is a bad thing.
Moist was definitely an interesting word choice.
Just to let you know, my brother is an amazing, handsome, food loving crossfitter, and we eat Paleo and both think you’re hilarious. Just sayin…if you ever want to come to Philadelphia for a date I think I could hook it up!
Only if he buys me a philly cheese steak. That was totally unoriginal. I apologize.
Just wanted to say that you and your recipes are awesome! I’m a new crossfitter and looking to start eating semi-paleo, and I’m so happy I found your website! Thanks for the laughs and the yummy foods!
Yay!! Glad you like it Juli!!
Oh, and I spell my name just like you! I got really excited to know there’s another juli without an e out there somewhere!
Juli’s unite!!! BUT my real name is Julienne. So we are just a little different. I still like you though.
a list of comments…(since you love lists)
1. those “nachos” look amazing. i wish i had apples right now, but maybe it’s a good thing that i don’t, because i would eat the whole thing before sunday. (coughTONIGHTcough)
2. aren’t fake uggs called fuggs? 🙂 (i’m from texas. some people wear them unnecessarily)
3. justin–glistening is hot.
Lol i absolutely love you Katie. Lists are so much easier to read through. I am going to say fuggs every day.
You are killing me on this one! Geesh. I love those flavors! High carb but healthy. Have to wait a bit to have this one.
I love carbs.
This looks pretty good! :). Will be substituting my all time fav Buffalo Wings with this on Sunday. Super Bowl will be more fun then :D. Btw, an interesting article on Super Bowl snacks http://www.ifood.tv/network/super_bowl_snack
these apple pie nachos sound interesting!
Interesting meaning awesome…yes!!
Men everywhere are changing their degergents as we speak. 🙂 Maybe you’ll get a Gain corporate sponsorship?
HA! smart men. gain would be insanely smart if they sponsored me. i would smell like heaven. and maybe get more dates that way. meaning A date.
Your blogs = The Bees Knees. Seriously. So freeeaking hilarious/true! I think I may have met you once or twice up at UNC. I hungout with Kaitlin Sanders a lot and she loved to rant and rave about you. So maybe we never technically met, but we basically did thanks to Kaitlin’s stories, haha. Anywho, Tom talked me into trying out Crossfit a couple months ago at the one in Lakewood, and I L-O-V-E-D it. My only issue is the financial burden of this kick-ass sport. I am currently in nursing school, babysitting occasionally to make a little bit of skrilllllla, and the parental figures don’t think Crossfit is in the budget right now. Do you know of any places that offer student discounts? Or do like a 3 days/week package that I may be able to afford?
I remember you Jessie!! CrossFit can definitely be a financial stressor. You should email me! Just check out your about me page and maybe we can find some place that would work for you!!
busy week with my daughter graduating college!!!! love this recipe will make it asap!!! hey im from philly too, come visit us!!!
Haha I’ll come visit you too Rhonda!
Wowsers, that was bloody orgasmic!!!Can’t stop eating it. This is by far my fav treat, absolutely scummy, thank you Juli. Off to buy more apples!!!!
Good on ya Sophie!
When I think of what you would get if you ordered Taco Bell nachos and then compare it to this, I almost want to barf. These were freaking insane. In the most awesome way possible. Last Saturday I walked out of the farmer’s market, got to the car, and realized I was going to regret it if I didn’t buy apples. I went back and bought some (before I even knew of this recipe). I love myself. And you. And your amazing talent that requires me to have little to no patience to consume fantastical food.
Thank god you bought. thank god. Glad you liked it Meaghan!
Since I just made these again, I’m going to give you another five stars. What gets another 5 stars are the new Mountain Hardwear spandex pants I’m wearing. I’m sure you would love them. The have a secret pocket on the right butt cheek so you could actually put crap in there. Thanks again for better-than-apple-pie yum.
I really wish i was eating those right now. i eve just bought apples. but no walnuts. and im too lazy to get off the couch. ur my hero
Started a Whole30 today, AND it’s my birthday – gonna modify this a bit for my “cake” Thanks!1
Hope it turns out great Becky!! Happy bday!
I tried this tonight and topped my nachos with coconut icecream. So delicious!
Wanna go elope Amber? Ur a genius.
Made these tonight. Amazing!
I wish i was eating that right now…
These are phenomenal!! Great flavor combo and super easy to make!! BTW, I like the tablespoon “overwhelm” because it makes for less stuff to have to clean up (or throw in the dishwasher).
I just had them for breakfast….oops
These reheat really well too, you know, if you have any leftovers…
Yeahhhhh, i’ve never had leftovers lol so thank you for letting us know Rena!
I have made these at least 3 times so far. Delish! and I even lessened the amount of honey to just a drizzle, and probably added more cinnamon. But great recipe!
You don’t need that much huh? The apples are so sweet on their own!!
This recipe is amazing! I could not stop eating it. LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog!!
Thanks so much Sarah!
Incidentally, if you happen to be out of raisins and only have dried cranberries, the dried cranberries add a really nice flavor as well. Kind of a sweet-sour thing going on. Made a double batch and I still LOVE this recipe. Aren’t you tired of hearing from me on this recipe?!
Lol glad you’re still making it Rena!
This has made my life …. Just saying 🙂
Glad you like it Jennifer
This recipe has made my life complete.
Words cannot describe the awesome. Seriously.
Hahaha glad you liked it!!
I’m like super late to the party, oh wells, I started dating my boyfriend because he smelled like Gain, for serious, we both worked in the same kitchen (I’m a pastry chef) and the first time I hugged him he smelled all fresh and clean and laundry like and I was hooked. These look uh-mazing and I’m uh-cited to try them! Just found your blog and love it, you’re fularious.
Hope you try out some recipes Lauren! Thanks for leaving a comment!
I just brought this to a crawfish boil for a local xfit gym. They loved it! They demanded I share the recipe. Thanks for something awesome.
I just stumbled onto this jewel of a website/blog and I have to say that I LOVE IT!!!! I just finished making the Apple Pie Nachos and I kind of ummm almost ate them all. Delicious. Can’t wait to try the Chocolate Coconut Bark!
I just made these and omg they r so good!! I love your site! I’ve been making lots of your stuff the sweet potato brownies are so bomb!! And I hate brownies!!! U r awesome
I have made these three times now & every time, I LOVE them!!!!! My two boys and my husband love them too! I multiply the recipe by 8 now, so that we actually have a chance to have leftovers!!! (Yep! We love it that much!) I substitute dried cranberries instead of raisins and it tastes AMAZING!!!! Thank you for this recipe!!!
You are seriously testing my blood sugar issues with all your fab desserts. I live in Canada and it’s getting cold, I wanted something warm and sweet that would make me happy. I made this sans honey and cut back on the raisins – it was fantastic! I may try this with butter next time instead of coconut oil (sliced applies cooked for a few minutes in grass fed butter with some cinnamon is amazing too.)
OMG! These are friggin’ awesome! I’m 10 weeks preggo with my fifth child and I was really craving something sweet. These are so delish and satisfying! I’ve been following your blog for a few months and I have yet to try a recipe of yours that I didn’t love! Definitely making these for my kiddos for breakfast tomorrow. Thanks Juli!
It is stupid how good this is. And it is even stupid-er how good it is with a big ol’ scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This sounds ridiculously amazing…….
Would you judge me if I put this amazing concoction on chips? I’ve been craving the hell out of some pita chips, and this looks too good not to try!!
whole30 friendly??? I need something to curve my sweet tooth!
No clue. I don’t know the whole30 rules.
Yeah, I’m not Paleo so I instantly thought cinnamon sugar pita chips to go with this!
These are amazingly good! My hubby and son LOVED these apples.
Made these tonight and am in LOVE. Decided I will be making a triple batch as my contribution to the Thanksgiving feast this year… 😀
you’re beautiful, hilarious, and cool as hell! (and your recipes are fantastic. I’m baking one currently.) very fortunate to have found this site. 🙂
