How to Make Peanut Butter Dip

Use these ingredients to make healthy peanut butter recipes:

  • 15 ounce can chickpeas 
  • peanut butter
  • agave nectar
  • vanilla
  • water
  • dairy free chocolate chips

If you want an even creamier peanut butter yogurt dip, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of vegan yogurt to the ingredient mix. If you use a vanilla yogurt, no need to also add vanilla as a separate ingredient.

Follow these simple steps:

Step One: Pulse the Ingredients

Rinse and drain the canned chickpeas and place them in the bowl of your food processor. Add the peanut butter, agave nectar, vanilla and water and pulse for a few seconds. Use a spatula to push down ingredients on the side of the bowl and pulse again.

Now put your food processor on pulse and walk away. Not forever, but for at least 30 – 40 seconds. Go wash the dishes, get your apple slices ready, or maybe a back flip or two. The point is, you want all the ingredients to be nice and smooth and there’s nothing like 40 seconds in a food processor to make that happen.

Step Two: Add Chocolate Chips

By the way, this last step is optional. Add chocolate chips or not. Either way, this is a delicious recipe!
