    From the American Heart Association...


    1/3 cup dried, unsweetened cranberries or raisins

    1/4 cup sliced almonds (unsalted)

    2 Tbsp hulled, unsalted sunflower seeds

    3 red or green apples, cored and thinly sliced into about 12 pieces each

    1-2 tsp lemon juice

    2 Tbsp water

    1/4 cup reduced-fat, smooth peanut butter

    1 Tbsp honey Directions

    1. In a small bowl, combine dried cranberries/ raisins, almonds, and sunflower seeds.

    2. Core each apple and thinly slice into about 12 pieces each. Layer half the apples onto a large plate or platter. If the apple slices will be sitting out for a while, sprinkle a little lemon juice over them to prevent browning.

    3. Using the microwave or a teapot, bring 2 tablespoons water to a boil. In a small bowl, combine hot water, peanut butter, and honey. Use a spoon and stir until mixture is smooth.

    4. Use the spoon to drizzle half the peanut butter mixture over the plated apple slices; sprinkle with half the cranberry mixture. Layer the remaining apples on top and repeat with remaining peanut butter and cranberry mixture. Serve.

    Quick Tips

    Cooking Tip: When using sticky substances like honey or peanut butter in a recipe, coat the measuring spoon or measuring cup with cooking spray for easier removal.

    Keep it Healthy: Always opt for unsweetened dried fruit—the sweetened varieties contain too much unnecessary sugar.

    Tip: The sky’s the limit when it comes to toppings for these apple nachos: any dried fruit, chopped nuts, pumpkin seeds, granola, or unsweetened shredded coconut.
