Vegan Mofo 2014 Day 8: Easy Apple Nachos

Apple slices smothered in hot peanut butter sauce and topped with walnuts and chocolate chips!
My three critics were interesting today. They all seemed to have a wide variety of ideas as to work direction and content. Plus many influences to look up tonight. One critic in particular revealed that his grandmother was a translator for Frida Kahlo! Get out of town! Frida Kahlo?? I was so uber thrilled. Even more excited by the fact that quiet, shy Frida barely spoke, but made his grandmother a little flip book. Now I will make it my semester to see this personalized Frida Kahlo handmade flip book.
Hello Vegan Mofo 2014 visitors and Virtual Vegan Linky Party Number 11 guests! Wow. 11. 
Since I've been pretty much stuck inside studio space making beautiful and ugly things, there's been less home advantage. Yet nothing stops Taste The Nom Nom from springing into action. I had seen a picture last year of apple slices topped with all kinds of ingredients being nicknamed "nachos." Now talk about the perfect treat after such a tough strenuous day. This easy peasy dessert hit all the right notes!
I gathered up apple slices, warmed up peanut butter and topped off the treat with walnuts and chocolate chips. Peanut butter, all ooey gooey like the hottest cheese fondue for tortilla chips, is amazing component to apple slices. Always has been and always will be. Pretty much two dynamics together- apples and peanut butter- peanut butter and chocolate. Walnuts add crunchy, delicious texture bridging these two tantalizing couples together. So so good!

Easy Apple Nachos

1 apple (I used Fiji here)
1/4 cup unsalted peanut butter (or any nut butter will do!)
1/8 cup walnuts
handful chocolate chips

Sliced apples in thick chunks.
Melt peanut butter and pour over apple slices.
Top with walnuts and chocolate chips!

Easily one of nature's better snack combinations- apples, peanut butter, walnuts, and chocolate! All we needed was some cinnamon to jazz it up further.
Plate licking heaven nonetheless.


  1. apple Nacho wow i just love love it... slurp..

  2. I think there's an error in your recipe. Should it be: A BIG handful of chocolate chips :-P?? Thanks for sharing at the Potluck, Janyce!

    1. LOL ANnie!!! Well, I wanted to play it like it was uber healthy, but meh.... add a GIANT handful of chocolate chips if you must! :D

  3. yes!! I remember seeing something like this before and not making it either. But now you have reminded me and I want it now! I love the idea of just using peanut butter, instead of trying to make some sorta caramel sauce. Plus, peanut butter + apple is one of my favorite food combos ever.

    1. Hi Amey! Yeah, a caramel sauce was definitely not on the cards for me lol. Sugar overload galore. With raw peanut butter, the sweetness factor was mainly from the apples and chocolate chips. The pb and walnuts just added that oomph! You know?
