Low Fat Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Dip

Prep Time 5 min Serves 6

If you're not concerned about keeping the fat and calories low, this recipe can be made with equal amounts of traditional, full fat cream cheese and regular peanut butter.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons powdered peanut butter
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 8 ounces fat free cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tablespoons confectioner's sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Add powdered peanut butter and water to a small mixing bowl and use a spoon to stir until combined.
  2. Add cream cheese, confectioner's sugar, and vanilla extract and stir until well combined. (I used an electric hand mixer, but a large mixing spatula will also work).
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips and serve with graham crackers, cookies, sliced apples, celery, or eat it straight from a spoon!

      Hi Tiffany,
      I don’t usually include nutritional information because it can vary greatly depending on which brand of ingredients are used. However, in this case, the recipe makes 4 servings. Each serving has 158 calories, 19 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of fat, 9 grams of protein, 16 grams of sugar, and 364 mg of sodium.
      There’s a really great nutritional calculator on the MyFitnessPal website that I use a lot. You can get a free account and they have a mobile app, too! I hope you like this dip recipe!

    This would make a great dessert for a back packing trip using yogurt as cream cheese it is a little more stable without refrigeration and could survive until the second night before combining the ingredients. Thank you.

    Ohhhhhh man this would totally be dangerous at my house! …because I’d probably down the whole entire bowl in like 5.8 seconds. Actually, I’m thinking this needs to happen. #worthit

      Chris, my friend… the calories in this peanut butter dip are totally worth walking a couple of laps around the block for. Besides, you need to store up all of the excess energy you can, because pretty soon, you’ll be singing the “sleepless new parent” blues as you try to form coherent sentences during the day! 🙂

    A few years ago I had several jars of powdered peanut butter in my pantry. I really need to stock up again. I loved it and love the sounds of your dip.

    Arman March 25, 2015 (10:54 pm)

    Becca, I’m not going to lie. I’d eat the whole damn dip with a spoon. Then I’ll eat a salad and call it a balanced meal.

    Becca – it’s as if a cannoli met a Reese’s peanut butter cup and they decided to go on a diet together:) What fun! Although I have to admit I’m tempted by the full-fat version, slathered on a chocolate cookie.

    • comment-avatar
      Chef Becca March 26, 2015 (7:37 am)

      You know what, Laura? I’ve never had a cannoli, so if it tastes anything like this dip, I need to try one ASAP! P.S. Chocolate cookies and a full fat version of this dip? YES, please!

      Chef Becca March 26, 2015 (7:36 am)

      Carla, every time I see you post a cream cheese dip, I always think it’s the greatest idea ever! This was the first truly sweet dip I’ve made, and I am NOT regretting the decision!

    Of all the dessert dips I’ve ever made, peanut butter dip was obviously the best. Great idea to make it slightly less sinful.

    Interesting! I’ve never heard of powdered peanut butter. How does the flavor compare with traditional peanut butter?

    • comment-avatar
      Chef Becca March 26, 2015 (7:32 am)

      Coleen, I’m one of those people who’s skeptical of all new products I come across and I have a very picky palate, but let me tell you… this stuff is amazing! It’s all-natural. All they did was press the oil out of the peanuts and reduce what was left into a powder, so it’s essentially peanut flour. You mix it with a little water to turn it into thick peanut butter without all of the fat. I absolutely love it, and I bet you will, too!

    Janette March 25, 2015 (9:46 am)

    Yeah, low fat means we can eat more, right? Give me a spoon I want to dive right in, looks so good.

      Chef Becca March 26, 2015 (7:29 am)

      Yes, as a matter of fact, low fat DOES mean we can eat more and not feel guilty, Janette! Here’s your spoon… dig in!

    Dang lady – this dip sounds wonderful! I’ve always been curious about powdered PB – you sure made good use of it – though – this is more than a snack – I say lets have this for breakfast! 🙂

    • comment-avatar
      Chef Becca March 25, 2015 (9:01 am)

      Thanks, Sweetness! I bought the PB2 ages ago and was really reluctant to try it, because I’m such a HUGE peanut butter lover, but then I realized that it’s just pressed peanuts.. it’s peanut butter without the fat, girly! It’s SO worth buying. I added it to my oatmeal this morning and went straight to PB heaven.

    I’ve heard tell of powdered peanut butter but have never actually seen it on store shelves. Did you order it online, Becca? That dip looks marvelous!

    • comment-avatar
      Chef Becca March 25, 2015 (8:59 am)

      Stacy, I ordered the powdered peanut butter from Amazon, but I’ve also seen it at health food stores. It’s so worth buying! If you click on the hyperlink in my recipe, it’ll take you to the product I bought.
