Peanut Butter Dip for Apples Kids Love
Peanut Butter dip for fresh veggies or fruit.
I whipped up this Peanut Butter Dip one afternoon as a quick snack and served it with apple sticks (an apple I sliced into sticks). Now it has become a common snack at our house when the kids get the munchies between meals.
The next morning I spread it on toast for breakfast. This peanut butter dip is an excellent substitution for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The dates make the dip sweet and it’s all natural ingredients.

If you don’t have dates you can use maple syrup or honey for sweetener.
This is also a great way to incorporate flax seed into your diet. Flax is high in Omega-3 essential fatty acids which are good fats shown to have heart healthy effects. Flax is also high in fiber. In order to absorb these nutrients, the seed must be broken apart such as in a blender or grinder. Otherwise the seed just ‘”passes through”.
Any nut butter can replace the peanut butter. This dip does not need to be measured exactly, just throw the ingredients in your blender and blend away. If you need a bit more milk to get it to blend, add some. If you need more maple syrup or another date to sweeten it, add it. Experiment. It really is hard to mess up this mixture of ingredients. They just go together and come out great.
