IT'S PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME!

For those of you familiar with that incredibly catchy and annoying song, I'm sorry / you're welcome. I can't help but have that song stuck in my head whenever I make a PB&J.

And if you're not familiar, take a minute to watch by clicking here (you're welcome / I'm sorry).

ANYWAY, a few years ago I stumbled across the concept of apple “nachos” and made a peanut butter + chocolate version that went crazy viral.

It almost doesn't even count as a recipe! But I thought the picture was pretty and was a unique idea.

Needless to say, if I eat an apple it is most likely in nacho form. Last time I was making the snack I decided to mix it up a bit and do an even healthier version.

(As much as I want to believe chocolate is a salad, it's not.)

Enter = peanut butter and jelly.

Unless you're a weirdo who doesn't like PB&J (I'm looking at you, Mom) then these are a perfect snack!

Kid-friendly (although a bit messy) and adult-approved (I'm not a parent but I DO approve them).

What do you need to make these peanut butter and jelly apple nachos? An apple, melted peanut butter, and your favorite flavor of jelly! Mine is strawberry.

And if you want to get extra creative (or sneaky, depends how you look at it) you can add some extra protein on top in the form of chia seeds or extra nuts.

Chia seeds add 5 grams of protein in just 1 oz.! (1 ounce is 2 tablespoons though, so you probably don't want to add THAT much! But every little bit counts 🙂

And yes, before you ask – I DO realize these aren't real nachos. Word play, folks, okay?

If you prefer your nachos come in the cheesy form, this one might be better for you:
