I love peanut butter.

Let’s be honest, I could dip apples and crackers in pure peanut butter all day. But that could get a bit costly on the fat and calorie counts…[200 calories and 16 grams of fat to be exact, and let’s be honest, who stops at the recommended 2 tablespoons?]

Now I know many people out there add about 1 tablespoon of peanut butter per cup of yogurt for a peanut butter flavored yogurt..but that isn’t what I was going for. I was going for something that still tasted like the rich and satisfying peanut butter, that you could spread on toast or apples and enjoy the same taste..but just in a lower fat, higher protein way.


I eat at least one apple every day. No, not because I think it’ll keep the doctor away (even though it’s a plus!), but just simply because I love them! I use to sit there with an apple, knife, and jar of peanut butter, and slice off a piece, dip, devour, and repeat.

But sometimes with all that peanut butter, I would just feel sick after. Even if it’s healthy fats.

And that is when this dip was born. Protein packed with Greek yogurt being a key ingredient. And still that same delicious peanut butter taste. It almost has a cookie dough flavor taste<3

Same taste. Less than HALF the calories and fat.



Okay okay, and some added dark chocolate chips because, well, what is better than peanut butter and chocolate? (even though I had to eat my portion of this with cacao nibs because I’m in WEEK TWO of my 21 day sugar detox! Check here on instagram for details)

With 2 tablespoons only being 80 calories versus the 200 calories of just plain peanut butter..why not?


I made this as an apple dip, but I soon found out it was just as delicious on toast and on crackers as well! Mmm.


Just like I love chocolate so I added it, this dip is completely customizable to what you like!  Big coconut fan? Add some! Want a crunch? Add some chopped nuts! Need some extra fiber? Add some flaxseed or chia seeds!


But one thing is for sure, don’t exit this page without deciding to make this dip 🙂 It is great to have on hand!
