This Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dip is quick and easy to make, perfect for an after-school snack with some sliced apples.

I’m always looking for healthy after-school snack ideas for my kids to help tide them over until dinnertime. The idea is to give them a nutrient dense snack, made with whole ingredients. That way, I know they’re filling up with something healthy, so even if they eat less dinner, it’s okay.

When I was a kid (and even as an adult), I would eat peanut butter and celery sticks for a snack, so today’s Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dip is a different take on that snack combination. The best part about this easy snack recipe is that it actually has a vegetable incorporated into the dip, and is served with fresh apple slices, so your child is getting a fruit and vegetable at the same time. I used organic apples because conventional apples are the #1 “dirtiest” out of all fruits and vegetables in the U.S. (meaning they have the most pesticides). The upside of serving organic apples is that you can leave the skin on, so it’s less work.

Pumpkin pie spices give this dip warm Fall flavors, perfect for this time of year when the leaves are turning color and thoughts of the holidays are around the corner.

FYI…this dip makes a great alternative to peanut butter on a piece of whole grain toast for breakfast.

  1. Hi Jeanette,

    Sounds yummy!! I can’t wait to try it out later but I am curious as to how long this dip will keep for.
    I love your blog!!
    Thank you.

    Denise

    • Denise – I think this would keep in the refrigerator for about a week, although it might not last that long if you eat it for breakfast too.

  2. OH. MY. GOSH. This is pure and absolute brilliance. Why have I never combined peanut butter and pumpkin? Total missed opportunity. I cannot wait to try this.

  3. I love the idea of combining pumpkin with peanut butter. This sounds like a great snack for the kids or even us adults :) Thanks for sharing Jeanette, pinning to make this for my son soon :)

  4. What a good idea, I’d like to try this with almond butter too!

  5. Delicious idea, this is going on my ‘to do list’ tomorrow because I want some pumpkin peanut butter on toast :)

  6. I love this! I wish I had had this recipe a few weeks ago when I had extra pumpkin left over from my pumpkin cookies. Peanut butter and apples is my favorite snack, so of course, I’ll have to try this!

  7. omg YUM! I am so making this

  8. Delicious-looking dip, Jeanette!

  9. Brilliant idea, Jeanette! I would probably use SunButter or almond butter in mine. Peanuts do not like me…even though I adore peanut butter! Thanks for sharing!

  10. This is another great recipe, Jeanette. It’s not a combo that I would have thought of in this way, but I like it! Will have to share it on All Gluten-Free Desserts soon. I’m like most everyone else on thinking that almond butter would be great in it. :-)

    Thanks!
    Shirley

    • Thanks Shirley – I happened to have some peanut butter on hand, but use almond butter, sunflower butter and peanut butter interchangeably.

  11. I try to get organic apples most of the time too. Love this snack option!

  12. Love! I just made pumpkin butter, and I think I’d love this combination.
