This may be the best thing on the planet. The moment I tasted this yummy dip, I was in love. I think in the past week or so I’ve eaten it almost every day. It’s super yummy on apple slices, celery sticks, carrot sticks, toast, fingers, spoons, pretty much anything. This recipe came from a sweet lady by the name of Fran Emory. Fran’s Baked Goods will be a vendor at the Duke Farmer’s Market this coming season. So, if you happen to be at Duke on a Friday this spring and summer and need a yummy snack, she will be selling this dip partnered with some local produce.
This is the whole recipe, but I actually made it with about 1/2 cup brown sugar and it was still super yummy! Nutritionally you get the healthy fats and protein from the peanut butter plus loads of beta carotene from the pumpkin. Perfect!
1 cup creamy peanut butter (Trader Joe’s is my favorite, just peanuts and salt)
1 cup canned pumpkin
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Mix it all together till smooth.
It’s that easy!
