Caramel Apple Nachos (vegan, paleo)

THIS is the EASIEST healthy “junk food”, but not really junk food, snack that is so dang fun to make and eat! The star of this dish is the Date Lady Date Sauce and/or Caramel Sauce that I finally tried, and OMG, it’s such a great treat to hand! We are in the midst of a full on kitchen remodel right now, so the past few weeks have been all about EASY snacks. This snack takes less than 5 minutes to make from start to finish.

The Date Lady in no way sponsored this post or gave me any free products, but because I love her date sweetened goodies so much I am going to tell you about them!

First the Date Lady date Syrup has ONE INGREDIENT: Organic Dates. It has a caramel like consistency, pairs perfectly with apple slices, sweetens tea nicely, and does not need refrigeration so it travels well too!

Then there is the Date Lady Caramel Sauce. It is made with: organic dates, natural caramel flavor, sea salt. To me it tastes like caramel, has a consistency of caramel, and does everything that a good caramel sauce does. It’s a winner.

And last but certainly not least is the Date Lady Chocolate Spread. Um, Ya. Trust me, You NEED this in Your Life. For those times when you want a vegan, paleo, refined-sugar-free chocolate truffle dessert, but you don’t want to go to the trouble of making one, you simply dig a spoon into a jar of this chocolate goodness, and enjoy some of the best store bought chocolate I’ve ever had. Ingredients: Organic date syrup, organic cocoa, organic coconut oil, organic cocoa butter, vanilla, sea salt, pectin.

Do your future self a favor, order up some goodies from the Date Lady, stock up on apples, and get ready to take a trip to flavor town!
