A fun fall treat that takes healthy eating a little less seriously! These baked apple nachos take dessert nachos to a whole other level. They’re like pie, but much easier and much healthier. If you bake them in your oven, the glorious smell would convince everyone that a traditional pie was in the making. You can even allow everyone to customize their own or you can pile on the toppings yourself!
