Peanut butter dip is such a fun thing to make for kids or an easy appetizer. For this recipe you won’t need a food processor but you will need plain greek yogurt and an airtight container to keep it in.

This delicious dip is one of those easy recipes you can whip up in a small bowl in no time. It’s a great dipping sauce for fruits and veggies. Sometimes nut butter recipes call for olive oil or even a cup almond butter but none will be needed for this recipe.


Q: Can I use regular yogurt instead of Greek yogurt? A: While Greek yogurt provides a thicker and creamier texture, you can use regular yogurt as a substitute. However, keep in mind that the dip might be slightly thinner in consistency.

Q: Is there a way to make this dip vegan-friendly? A: Absolutely! You can easily make this dip vegan by using dairy-free yogurt and a plant-based peanut butter substitute. Replace the maple syrup with agave nectar or any vegan-friendly sweetener.

Tips and Tricks:

  1. Mix well for a smooth texture: To achieve a velvety-smooth dip, use a hand mixer or a whisk to thoroughly combine all the ingredients until there are no lumps.

  2. Adjust sweetness to taste: If you prefer a sweeter dip, feel free to add more maple syrup. For a subtle sweetness, stick to the recommended measurements.

Where Did It Originate:

The origins of Peanut Butter Dip can be traced back to the imaginative minds of peanut butter enthusiasts. This delectable dip gained popularity through the years as a versatile and delicious accompaniment to fruits, pretzels, and even a sneaky spoonful on its own.

This is one of the great ideas for after school snacks, I know my kids love it a lot! This is obviously one of those dips that kids can be allergic too so be sure to check with all parties before serving!

I’ve seen a similar recipe for nut butter dip that called for creamy almond butter and coconut oil. Some people use plain yogurt but I like greek yogurt in this tasty dip.


  1. Chocolate Peanut Butter Dip: Mix in a tablespoon of cocoa powder or chocolate chips for a decadent twist, creating a luscious chocolate-infused peanut butter dip.

  2. Honey Peanut Butter Dip: Swap the maple syrup for honey for a slightly different flavor profile that pairs beautifully with fresh fruits.

Where to Serve Peanut Butter Dip

  • Snack time: Elevate your snack game with this Peanut Butter Dip as a tasty and healthy dip for apple slices, carrot sticks, or pretzels.

  • Brunch spreads: Impress your guests with a unique addition to your brunch spread. Serve this dip with a variety of fruits, toast, and bagels for a delightful and flavorful accompaniment.

Another yummy way to enjoy this dip is with graham crackers. A granola bar is great but why not step up snacks or appetizers with this fun nut butter dip!


Store any leftover Peanut Butter Dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It can be kept for up to a week, making it a convenient and delicious snack option.

Common Problems and How to Avoid Them:

  1. Separation: If you notice some separation in the dip after refrigeration, simply give it a good stir before serving to blend the ingredients back together.

  2. Too thick or thin: To adjust the consistency, add a splash of milk or yogurt if the dip is too thick or more peanut butter if it’s too thin. Mix well until you achieve the desired texture.

Topping Options:

  1. Crushed peanuts: Sprinkle some crushed peanuts on top of the dip for an extra crunchy and nutty element.

  2. Sliced bananas: Top your Peanut Butter Dip with sliced bananas for a classic pairing that’s both delicious and satisfying.
