Ingredients

  • Apples: 2, sliced. I prefer tart apples, so I used Granny Smiths, but feel free to use whatever you enjoy.
  • Granola: ½ cup. For granola, pick something that doesn’t have a lot of extras (ie. fruit, nuts, etc) – I used “(Not So) Vanilla Granola” – or you can also use chopped nuts.
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: ½ cup (non-dairy). If you’re not in the mood for vegan chocolate, you can use peanut butter. 

How to Make Apple Granola Topped Goodness

Keep scrolling to the recipe card for the complete list of ingredients and recipe instructions!

Begin by slicing the apples into spears.

Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave in 45-second increments. If it’s not melted, stir and try again. Keep a close eye to not burn the dairy-free chocolate. It's easy to do! Here's a great guide on How to Melt Chocolate like a pro!

Dip the top of the slices lightly into the  non-dairy chocolate and then immediately dip it in the granola. Put on a plate and enjoy, or throw in the refrigerator to chill.

Granola Topped Apple Tips

  • I recommend keeping the apples in the refrigerator before use.
  • You can use many different toppings such as nut butter, hazelnut spread, or whatever you have on hand.
  • Use a mix of sweet and tart apples for a mix of flavor.
  • You can use homemade or store-bought granola.

A Perfect Treat for The Little Ones

Kids love snacking and this is a perfect example of a quick, healthy, and filling snack for those little munchers. Just slice your apple, melt the vegan chocolate chips in the microwave and top it with granola or any other topping you have on hand.

It’s also a great recipe to cook with the kids. They can easily participate while preparing it, and they will definitely enjoy pouring the melted vegan chocolate and, most likely, lick their fingers. Add a few bowls with different apple toppings and let them play with their food!

Different Toppings

This recipe calls for granola as a topping but you have many other healthy plant-based options to choose from. You could use puffed rice, sesame seeds, coconut flakes, or crushed walnut pieces. The most important feature of the topping should be its crunch. So take a pick and enjoy!
