If I had to pick one food to live off of it might just be peanut butter. It’s wholesome, loaded with healthy fats, protein, and is just plain delicious. It also pairs well with waffles as a delicious topping. You can also use waffles for dipping instead of apples or celery for a unique breakfast-themed snack.
Whether you serve it at parties or as an after school snack, your guest will love this unique peanut butter cream cheese dip.
What to Serve it With
This peanut butter dip would go great served with sliced apples, bananas, or celery for dipping. You can also add it as a topping to ice cream or in a French toast sandwich.
It also pairs well with waffles. Whether you top the waffles or slice them and use for dipping into the sauce. I served it with Van’s® Waffles. Their Gluten Free Original or Blueberry Waffles are made with whole grain brown rice flour, sweetened with fruit juice, and contain 21-23 grams of whole grains per serving.
Waffles are one of my favorite breakfast items. The flavor and topping options are endless. If you don’t have time to make from scratch in the morning, frozen waffles make a convenient option.
Peanut Butter Dip Ingredients
Peanut butter: Goes without saying but had to include it. Use natural peanut butter (just peanuts and salt) for the best flavor and consistency. I like crunchy peanut butter, which adds a nice texture.
Cream cheese: Makes this dip creamy and adds a nice savory tang that compliments the other flavors.
Whipped cream: Fold into the dip to create a fluffy and airy peanut butter dip.
Maple syrup: Adds natural sweetness and turns this into a sweet treat. You could omit for a lower-sugar option.
Don’t forget the waffles and other items for dipping. Van’s® Waffles make a great choice for quick and easy snacking.
How to Make the Dip
Making this dip is super simple. Simply stir together softened cream cheese, peanut butter, and maple syrup in a bowl until well combined. Carefully fold in whipped cream until light and fluffy. Drizzle with maple syrup and serve with desired items for dipping.

Notes: If you don’t have a mixer or want to save time, you can substitute fresh whipped cream with ½-cup of canned whipped cream. This will add sweetness, so omit maple syrup if desired.
