This recipe is far from creative since just about every food blogger out there has made them, but they sure are irresistible!  (My keyboard is covered with melty peanut butter as we speak!)

Years ago, when completing my community nutrition rotation in school I remember learning this little bit of advice from my mentor Kim (who is now one of my best friends!)

“Use 2 food groups to make a healthy snack and 3 food groups to make a balanced meal”

I keep this in mind every time I prepare a snack or meal for Noah…or myself!

These loaded apple nachos consist of foods from the fruit group (apple & raisins) and protein group (nut butter)…two food groups, score!
