This is peanut butter apple salad is actually one of my favorite things to eat in the morning, but if we’re being real it could totally be a dessert as well. I came up with this idea after I started being a little obsessed with apples and peanut butter. I loved eating it for a snack, but I secretly wished I could eat even more peanut butter because the serving just never felt like enough! But when you’re counting calories and trying to lose weight, peanut butter is definitely something you don’t want to eat too much of. Since I bet $600 I’ll lose 60 lbs by December, I needed to find healthier alternatives to the things I used to eat.
So I decided to mix my peanut butter with some greek yogurt and voila – instantly way more peanut butter mixture without all the added calories
As for the yogurt, I use the Dannon Light n’ Fit Greek vanilla because it has
The granola and chocolate chips aren’t necessary and you can totally leave them out (or add in anything else that sounds good) but love the combination of all the textures and flavors.
Really, it’s pretty versatile!
- 1/2 cup Dannon Light n’ Fit Vanilla Greek Yogurt (or any vanilla/plain yogurt you prefer)
- 2 Tbsp Jif Whipped Peanut Butter (or PB 2, or whatever you prefer)
- 1 small apple (I use Gala or Fuji)
- 2 Tbsp granola
- 1 Tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix 1/2 cup greek yogurt and 2 Tbsp peanut butter in a bowl, chop up the apple into bite-size pieces and toss in yogurt mixture to coat. Sprinkle with the granola and chocolate chips – enjoy!
I also have just mixed it together without the apple and used it as a dip – that’s good too! I just prefer to eat it all together in a bowl!
