I love eating peanut butter with celery as part of my diet plan for meal #4. Rarely am I satisfied though with 2 tbsp of peanut butter which comes out to 200 calories. I eat as much celery as I want but still it’s not the same without peanut butter. I recently came up with a new lower calorie fall dip for my celery and apples that I have been dying to share with all you. I think you are going to fall in love with it. It’s called Pumpkin Peanut Butter and it has 110 calories for 3 whopping tablespoons (you can obviously double this recipe for just 220 calories and 6 tablespoons as well).
Pumpkin Peanut Butter
Makes 1 serving
Takes 2 minutes to prepare.
- 1 tbsp Peanut Butter (No sugar or salt added, straight up ground peanuts)
- 2 tbsp Pumpkin Puree
- 1/4-1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon or Pumpkin Pie Spice (optional)
- 5 drops of Liquid Stevia or 1/2 packet of Truvia or other sugar substitute (I like NuNaturals) (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a small dish and blend well together. Eat immediately with either celery, on an apple, with a spoon or a rice cake.
