Low Cal Pumpkin Peanut Butter Snack Recipe

October 24, 2011 · 3 comments

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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)

Directions:

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.

I love your blog! I am a senior at Michigan State and it has really helped me become healthier and happier :) I wanted to tell you that I put the pumpkin peanut butter puree on a banana and stuck it in the freezer over night. SOOO GOOD, you should try it :)
