This peanut butter dip is perfect for dipping apples or topping your pancakes, oatmeal or cauliflower oats! This peanut butter dip is simple to make, dairy free, gluten free, and vegan! And if you have picky eaters, this is the perfect way to get some protein in your little ones (as long as they don’t have any peanut allergies that is).
For me the perfect snack or post workout meal is peanut butter and apples! But for the past year I have been tracking my macros and I usually over-do my fat if I just use peanut butter for my apple dipping after a workout. So I started making this high protein peanut butter dip instead! There actually isn’t any peanut butter in this dip (spoiler alert)!
What you need to make the high protein peanut butter dip:
- Peanut flour
- Vegan Protein Powder
- Dairy free milk
What is peanut flour (peanut powder)?
To make this peanut butter dip, I used peanut flour (or peanut powder). I keep my cabinets stocks with this stuff! Peanut flour is made from real peanuts, they are roasted and the oil from the roasted peanuts is extracted, leaving a dry peanut powder. I love peanut flour because it’s much lower in fat that peanut butter, lower in carbs and high in protein! It’s the perfect compromise on my lower fat days!
If you are trying to find peanut flour in your grocery store, I know Jif and PB Fit can be found in most grocery stores. However, just like other peanut butter products, many of these products have added sugar! So grab the Jif or an organic brand if you can find it! I usually have a 1 pound bag of Protein Plus Peanut Powder (affiliate) in my cabinets. I’ve been using this brand for 5+ years. It’s a staple in my house! PS if you pick up a bag of peanut flour, you have to make these peanut butter brownies! They are AMAZING!
What is the best protein powder to use in this high protein dip?
You will also need some vegan protein powder to make this peanut butter dip! You can use vanilla or chocolate, but I prefer the vanilla! If you don’t use a vegan protein, you may need to adjust the amount of milk you use in this recipe, since the vegan protein tends to absorb a ton of liquid! My favorite brand is Nuzest Clean Lean Protein (affiliate). I use it for just about everything!
I love using Nuzest Clean Lean Protein because it doesn’t have any artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners (not even stevia). Other vegan protein powders have tested high for heavy metals because of the soil they are grown in. Nuzest ingredients are grown in a region selected specifically for the quality of the soil, so you can feel good about using it! Get 15% off your Nuzest order using the code below!
What else can I make with Peanut Flour (Peanut Powder)?
If you love everything peanut butter, you are going to want to try my Chocolate Peanut Butter Low Carb Oatmeal or Low Carb Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie for breakfast or my favorite Spicy Peanut Spiralized Sweet Potato Pasta for lunch or dinner!
