Peanut butter Greek yogurt dip is the perfect light and flavorful healthy dip for apples and crackers. The peanut butter is mixed with Greek yogurt, maple syrup and vanilla, just the right creaminess for easy dipping.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, as the saying goes. And I can’t think of a yummier way to stay in good health. Apples are my favorite fruit! When I was a kid, I could eat more apples a day than I care to admit. But you know what? I was almost never sick, so maybe there really is something to that saying!
Peanut butter and apples is one of those classic healthy snacks that everyone loves. But please tell me I’m not the only one who has a hard time getting the peanut butter to spread and stick to the apple slices?!
The solution I’ve found is to mix the peanut butter with Greek yogurt to get that prefect texture to dip apples in. No more spreading and better yet, I can make a big batch to stick in the fridge and pull out when we need it throughout the week! A quick bite for those constant pleas for snacks throughout the day.

I love to prep a batch of peanut butter yogurt dip on Mondays, divide it up into these little mason jars and lids for single servings, and stick them in the fridge to add to my girls’ school lunches along with a baggie of sliced apples to dip in. They love it and never get tired of this creamy peanut butter goodness.
Peanut butter yogurt dip also makes a great addition to a snack tray at parties or play dates. Easy to make ahead and easy to store leftovers afterward (if there happen to be any, which isn’t usually the case).

How To Make Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Dip:
- Peanut Butter -Regular old creamy peanut butter, not the all natural kind that separates in the jar.
- Greek Yogurt – I like to use plain yogurt, but honey or vanilla flavored yogurt work as well. You may need to use a bit less syrup though, since the flavored ones are already sweetened. I use the homemade greek yogurt I make in my instant pot.
- Maple Syrup – Pure maple syrup is the way to go. It adds a wonderful flavor that tastes amazing with the salty peanut butter.
- Vanilla Extract – I make this using my homemade vanilla extract, but store-bought works just fine too.

Substitutions – Honey can be used in place of the syrup.
