Mix 1 tbsp. of nut butter-(I used almond butter) with 2 tbsp. of maple syrup. Stir until well combined and until it has a runny consistency.

Flick and drip the nut butter mixture over the apple slices.

Then add your favorite toppings to cover the apple slices. I added sunflower seeds, chopped walnuts and unsweetened shredded coconut.

I like to finish mine with coconut because it looks so nice on top.

This is a fun snack or dessert to let people create on their own. You can slice the apples early just put them into a bowl.  Cover them with pineapple juice. The pineapple adds to the taste and is not near as acidic as lemon juice. That will prevent the browning that happens with sliced apples.

Just remember to check for allergies for the pineapple juice and the nuts.

Enjoy!
