Foodie Friday: Pumpkin Almond Butter Dip and Spiced Apple Chips


Pumpkin Almond Butter Dip & Spiced Apple Chips {Gluten Free, Vegan}

 Welcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Montana from Pretty Lil’ Mudder, Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl, Farrah from Fairyburger and Cassandra from Powered by BLING to create awesome healthy recipes each week!  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well!

This week our theme is chips and dip! When I first starting thinking of recipe ideas for this weeks theme, I had mostly savory dip recipes in mind.  I was going to attempt a vegan/healthy spinach and artichoke dip or go crazy with some strange guacamole concoction but then I had a “light bulb” moment and I realized that not all dips have to be savory….they can be sweet.  So I switched gears in my thought process and came up with this tasty little party treat. 

While the apple “chips” take a while to make, the recipe is actually rather simple and uses minimal ingredients. I also tried to keep it as low in sugar as possible so I chose not to add in any maple syrup or honey to the pumpkin almond butter dip but if you’d prefer it a bit more sweet, a tablespoon or two of either would be enough to satisfy the sweet tooth.Pumpkin Almond Butter Dip with Spiced Apple Chips {Vegan, Gluten Free}
