BUT serve them with this healthy peanut butter apple dip? And you’re both going to be feeling great, for two reasons.
A. because it’s incredibly delicious, and B. you know that it’s as nutritious as it is yummy.
A little peanut butter goes a long way when paired with some fruit, and even other things like fruits and salty pretzel snacks.

What To Serve With A Healthy Peanut Butter Dip
This peanut butter apple dip is obviously meant to be a healthier snacking choice- which makes fruit an obvious pairing.
Apple slices are the obvious choice, and they really do go great with this peanut butter dip.
Other fruits we like to use are grapes, mandarin orange slices, pears, and bananas. So yummy.

There’s even a cinnamon sugar graham cracker we’ve found that’s delicious.
Take it old school and just use a salty cracker, like a buttery Ritz. It’s a snack lover’s dream!
