These healthy apple cheese bites are super simple and absolutely delicious. They are the perfect appetizer or make a great healthy after school snack!


Sometimes you need fussy and sometimes you need to shove yummy little cheesy apple bites in your face with reckless abandon. Using tiny apples is key to making them look this cute and adorable so scour your favorite grocery store for some small ones or head to your farmers market.


These would be so perfect for a party and since they are gluten-free and refined sugar free they make a great universal appetizer for most guests. You could totally swap the goat cheese for hummus or tapenade too if you needed a dairy free option! Or just make these and our hummus stuffed mushrooms for your dairy free friends.

As for the kiddos? Well the entire tray of these had been swiped completely while I was out of the room for literally 2 minutes so I think it’s safe to say these were a winner. Perfect healthy after school snack or party fare for them too!

  1. I am not clear what “slice just to the outside of the core on both sides” means. Clearly not slice apples in half and cut core out. I wish there was a video for us slower learners.

    • Hi David,

      Yes on these little apples that’s the process. I mention in my post that they can be harder to find. On large apples you can use sliced rounds or just the very edges. We will be making a video of these soon thanks for the suggestion!

      Hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving!

      Made these for Thanksgiving appetizer, and they were great. I had to add a little cream cheese to the goat cheese, as mine was a little too dry without, and wouldn’t properly stay on the apples. I used chopped fresh cranberries, mixed with some honey for color, and used walnuts instead of almonds, because that’s what I had on hand. Still healthy and tasty!
