Healthier Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Dip

Healthier chocolate chip peanut butter dip isn’t loaded with fat or excess calories, but it’s definitely loaded with flavor! This low fat dip makes the perfect afternoon snack or dessert. Dip in with graham crackers, fruit slices, or just eat it straight from a spoon! It’s one of my favorite low fat recipes and it’s a Weight’s Watcher’s friendly dip!

The event was such a success that the hostesses, Carla (from Chocolate Moosey) and Miriam (from Overtime Cook) have decided to hold the 2nd annual Chocolate Peanut Butter Day celebration! This year, we have 28 bloggers participating, so there are enough peanut butter recipes to keep your stomach happy for quite some time!

My recipe for healthier chocolate chip peanut butter dip is the kind of snack that is so easy to put together, you can be enjoying it in less than 5 minutes. Oh, and it uses just 5 basic ingredients!

Peanut Butter Dip Recipe Variations

If you don’t want to make the low fat version, no worries! You can make it with full fat cream cheese and regular peanut butter, as long as you don’t mind the extra fat and calories.

Weight Watchers Freestyle Recipe:

To make this a Weight Watcher’s friendly dip recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • fat free cream cheese
  • powdered peanut butter (I use )
  • mini chocolate chips – I used traditional Toll House mini chocolate chips, but if you can find sugar free mini chips, you can have 1/4 cup of this dip for less than 2 points!

Whichever way you decide to make it, this low fat peanut butter dip makes the perfect healthy afternoon snack or dessert.

Low Fat Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Dip

Prep Time 5 min Yields 1.5 cups

Delicious creamy peanut butter dip with mini chocolate chips, made with low fat cream cheese and powdered peanut butter


  • 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


  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!

Recipe Notes

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.

    I’m counting calories, can you tell me the nutritional facts and the serving size please. It looks delicious.

    • Chef Bec September 13, 2015 (10:48 pm)

      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!

  • laura April 29, 2015 (9:06 am)

    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.

    • Chef Becca April 29, 2015 (4:20 pm)

      That sounds like a great idea, Laura! I hope you enjoy the peanut butter dip recipe!

  • Chris April 23, 2015 (2:02 pm)

    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

    • Chef Becca April 23, 2015 (4:47 pm)

      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! 🙂

  • CakeSpy March 29, 2015 (9:15 am)

    This looks awesome – I am so glad it’s health food! 🙂

    • Chef Becca March 31, 2015 (8:15 pm)

      Hehe… Always happy to help a friend, Jessie! 🙂

  • Jennie March 29, 2015 (6:16 am)

    Wow! This dip needs to happen…ASAP! Pinned.

  • Sarah March 28, 2015 (7:04 pm)

    This wouldn’t make it to dip stage… it would meet my spoon in short order

  • Amanda March 27, 2015 (10:50 pm)

    This dip looks amazing!

  • Renee - Kudos Kitchen March 26, 2015 (6:38 pm)

    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.

  • Nancy March 26, 2015 (5:43 pm)

    Chef Becca, I’ve never heard of powdered peanut butter before. How cool is that?! This dip looks rich, creamy ‘n decadent – perfect for planting my face in! 😉

  • 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.

    • Chef Becca March 26, 2015 (7:38 am)

      And that, sweet Arman, is why you’re a freaking culinary genius! I love the way you think!

  • Cindys Recipes and Writings March 25, 2015 (9:18 pm)

    I’m dreaming about all the good things to dip into this spread!

  • Laura March 25, 2015 (7:57 pm)

    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.

    • 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!

  • Carla March 25, 2015 (6:35 pm)

    I’m such a sucker for a cream cheese based dip, especially when chocolate and peanut butter are involved. Pass me a spoon! 😀

    • 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!

  • Kelsey March 25, 2015 (4:47 pm)

    ive got some crackers and im ready to dip in. oh and strawberries too. i cant believe this is low fat, you’re killing me with how bad i want this!

    • Chef Becca March 26, 2015 (7:35 am)

      Oooo, I hadn’t thought of strawberries for this dip, but Kelsey, that’s an awesome idea!

  • Jay DeMay March 25, 2015 (3:32 pm)

    Yum!! This looks so good! I love peanut butter and apples together so this looks like the perfect dip!

    • Chef Becca March 26, 2015 (7:34 am)

      Thanks so much, Jay! It’s quick and easy and OH so yummi! 😉

  • Kayle (The Cooking Actress) March 25, 2015 (12:23 pm)

    omigosh this would totally KILL at any party!

    • Chef Becca March 26, 2015 (7:33 am)

      Considering how quickly hubs and I gobbled it up, I think you’re right, Kayle!

  • Erin March 25, 2015 (10:33 am)

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

    • Chef Becca March 26, 2015 (7:33 am)

      I have to agree, Erin. This was the first time I went for a sweet dip, and now I’m afraid there’s no turning back!

  • Lisa March 25, 2015 (10:01 am)

    What a quick and easy treat! This would be perfect for parties!

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

      Quick and easy is the only way to go when you need a snack fast, Lisa!

  • Coleen March 25, 2015 (9:54 am)

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

    • 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!

  • Karen March 25, 2015 (8:36 am)

    Never made it before but I’ve tried it the full fat way. Looking forward to trying it your way.

    • Chef Becca March 25, 2015 (9:02 am)

      Healthy or full fat, this dip is where it’s at, Karen. I hope you’ll give it a try!

  • Shashi at RunninSrilankan March 25, 2015 (8:00 am)

    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! 🙂

    • 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.

  • Stacy March 25, 2015 (7:54 am)

    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!

    • 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.

  • Liz March 25, 2015 (7:41 am)

    We were on the same wavelength today, except you’ve given me a healthy alternative!!! Thanks, Becca!!!

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

      I can’t wait to check out your version, Liz! Coming over shortly 🙂

  • Taylor March 25, 2015 (6:53 am)

    So excited to see you using powdered peanut butter! I LOVE that stuff…which means that, this dip? I NEED IT ALL! Pinning!

    • Chef Becca March 25, 2015 (6:58 am)

      Oh girly, I am so happy that I took the plunge into powdered peanut butter! I added it to my oatmeal yesterday and went straight to peanut butter heaven!

  • Renee March 25, 2015 (5:34 am)

    I’d be eating celery every day if this dip was around.

    • Chef Becca March 25, 2015 (6:57 am)

      welcome to my world, Renee. Celery never tasted so good! 🙂
