I have a slight obsession.
If you’ve spent more than an hour or two with me, you’ll quickly learn I have an addition to peanut butter. Let’s not call it a problem. Because it’s so delicious, that seems unfair.
It only becomes a problem when I can’t talk my spoon out of taking a dip in the jar. Over and over.
We all know apples + peanut butter = amazingness.
The problem is, it takes like, 3 tbsp of peanut butter to sufficiently dip an entire apple. And while I love peanut butter, I do have to face the facts, that 1 measly tablespoon packs in 100 calories. Wow do those add up quickly. What’s a girl to do?
Whip up a batch of this creamy peanut butter dip, and start snacking!
Creamy Peanut Butter Dip
- 3 tbsp greek yogurt (plain or vanilla can work)
- 2 tbsp peanut flour (see note below)
- pinch of salt
- pinch of stevia (optional)
Note: If you can’t find peanut flour (or PB2) and you don’t feel like ordering it from Amazon, feel free to use regular peanut butter! It’ll be a little higher in fat and calories, but at least it’s good fat! You can reduce it down to 1 tbsp and it’ll still be super creamy and peanut butter-y.
Just mix all your ingredients together in a small dish, and start dipping! I also think this would be pretty good on toast, with pretzels, or… with a spoon 😉
I don’t know about you, but this week seemed to fly by. I’m happy it’s the weekend, but the weekdays we’re pretty fantastic on their own. On Wednesday, I did get a chance to go to Kuba Kuba, where I hadn’t been since my vegan days, (where the menu was a little more limiting…) so I was excited to try the Roasted Red Pepper and Asparagus Tortilla.
This spanish style omelete was delicious, especially with a little hot sauce on top. It was also super filling! I ended up taking half of it home for later. Our server was friendly, and it reminded me how happy I am to be in a city with so many great local spots. Richmond, you’re pretty great 🙂
