Growing up, I was always told off for double dipping or using a single corn chip as a vehicle to polish off an entire tub of hummus. While corn chips in their own right are delicious, when it comes to dips, we know who takes the
chickpea cake. After being told off one too many times (and being chased with a wooden spoon), I soon learned sneaky means of getting as much bang for my buck dip as possible, without double dipping- Choose the right vehicle (read- The most sturdy) and then dunk and load up the dip. This clearly ruled out corn chips, as they were flimsy at best. I resorted to carrots and celery sticks, the former being the more favored one.
When I first moved out of home, all bets were off- Salsa, french onion dip, and guacamole were all eaten with a spoon. In fact, I convinced myself that polishing off an entire jar of salsa in one sitting was pretty much the same as eating gazpacho…sort of.
Before we jump into today’s recipe, it’s Wednesday!!! Let’s check out what has made my plate! This is from Monday, and it included mum’s leftovers and a (failed) attempt of recreating a chain restaurant salad!
Breakfast- Cold spinach and feta pie from mum. Seriously, this tasted SO good cold. Lunch/Snacks– I kind of picked at my recipe during the shoot (and after), so when I went to meet a friend for lunch, I went light with some tofu spring rolls. Dinner- I tried to recreate the ‘Cheesecake Factory’ salad, but failed miserably. Making your own onion rings = No bueno. Pictured is what I ordered when out, not my own creation. It was still delicious!
Okay, now it’s time to get dipping!
As mentioned in this post, I’ve slowly transitioned to sweet dips, especially ones which require nothing but a spoon. However, I AM a huge fan of accompaniments which are on the sweeter side and pair well with said dip.
Let’s look at the maths equation at hand-
Single serve? Check.
Breakfast worthy? Check.
Tasting like dessert? Check.
Healthy too? Double check.
The answer? this healthy Single Serve Caramel Apple Breakfast Dip!
This healthy Caramel Apple Breakfast Dip is smooth, thick, creamy and is specifically designed for the most important meal of the day- Breakfast! It’s packed with protein (As always, I recommend this vegan protein powder, this casein protein powder, and this paleo protein powder), fiber and can be made completely sugar free! It’s a quick and easy recipe, which can be easily prepped the night before or minutes before hunger strikes! Not only is it suitable for breakfast, it can also be a filling snack, or an evening dessert. For the ‘caramel’ option, you can either used this caramel sauce here (paleo, vegan, and gluten free!) or this store bought caramel sauce, which is completely sugar free! The dip has been tested with a few dairy and non-dairy bases. As such, it’s suitable for those following a vegan, gluten free, paleo, sugar free and grain free diet and lifestyle!
HACK! For those who need some dipping action, you’ve been covered. Long term readers know that my favorite ‘chip hack’ is using Flatout wraps, and this situation is no different. We’ve done cinnamon protein pita chips, churros pita chips and cinnamon bun pita chips. What pairs well with Caramel Apple dip? HEALTHY BAKED APPLE PIE PITA CHIPS!
These baked pita chips taste like apple pie, thanks to the unique mixture of applesauce, apple pie spice, and a sprinkling of my favorite sugar-free granulated sweetener! These can be eaten with or without the dip, and can be prepped in advance!

I Love apple season, it means fall is almost upon us. THAT means pumpkin stuff! =) Have a great day!
🙂 Thanks so much, Trish!
i am laughing because I spotted the salad in the picture before reading that you made it – you know I recognized it immediately! I thought you were at cheesecake factory! it’s my favorite salad (as you know) and so easily replicated at home EXCEPT FOR THE ONION RINGS PART! I usually end up topping mine at home with onion rings from trader joe’s or more recently the Ian’s brand but it’s not the same. Even when I have tried making my own, they never come out like cheesecake factory. luckily the rest of the salad is easy enough to copy that the sub onion rings still make it taste good, just not 100% the same. if you come up with the right seasonings for those onion rings, I want to see the recipe!
YES!!!! Oh geebuz- So I asked my friend (who is obsessed with the salad) and they do exactly what you mentioned- Use frozen TJ’s ones. We suspect it might be beer battered (or similar) and a mix of five spice- Will report back!
Oh man I would have a bowl of this for breakfast. Those pita chips are genius. Who would have thought to use applesauce!? Well, I mean besides you. Nice one Arman.
Right? Hope you try it out, Cora!
This looks so good! I love how you don’t have to bake or heat the dip at all, super easy for us spoonful loving people who don’t need dipping vehicles. Although, these apple chips look pretty epic. I think I’ll be making those too!
Right? Please do, Sarah! It’s been enjoyed by many!
Yum, great idea to do a sweet dip with pita chips, that’s such a good combo. And I hate when you try to recreate something from a restaurant and it doesn’t taste as good. I have been working on trying to perfect my salmon, it always tastes so much better out….
Seriously!!! I find salmon, steak and chicken to always be better from a restaurant!
Those pita chips look amazing! You’re so clever!
I LIKE FOOD!! So this dip is for me. I feel so included.
I have been criticized for being weird with my dips: Greek yogurt for dried figs, hummus for handfuls of spinach, peanut butter for my fingers. But spinach artichoke is my fave!!
This also looks delightful and I’m starving and I want it now.
Omg. Hummus and spinach. I wonder if the spinach in Dublin is as expensive as Australia!
haha! I tried to make baked onion rings one time….total fail. I can imagine what yours might have looked like. I want to try ’em again but really fry them all legit style. Maybe this winter. But I am beyond stoked at this dip…because…wait for it…Honeycrisp Apples are now available at the orchard around the corner. That’s right. Today. At 9am. And I’ll be there at about 9:15am to pick my 30-pound bag. Then I’ll come home and dip them into this bad boy. It’s happening!
Dude, you totally need to make it- It’s so good and easy and healthy!
Love the idea of using applesauce! I think I would make this double apple and dunk some apple slices in it 🙂
😀 That sounds delicious, Kerri!
Mmmm, pita chips are definitely the best dip vehicle! You know I’m not big on sweet breakfasts, but this looks pretty darn good!
🙂 You can have it with some vino 😉
This right here is a gift from heaven! Eating this is equivalent to me beating simone biles in the olympics aka a DREAM COME TRUE!
LOL!!!!!! I love our banter!
Dip sounds like such a fun change of pace for breakfast! I never gave the favorite dip thought much question, but now that I think about it, I’m definitely partial to babaganoush—I’m obsessed with eggplant and tahini, so combining the two = heaven for my tastebuds.
That dip looks AMAZING> I totally agree that any of your goodies would work for anybody who… eats. 🙂 My favorite dip is probably a peanut butter yogurt one or spinach artichoke (like Alison.)
LOVE spinach artichoke- You’ve sparked a craving, Emily!
I’m all about caramel apple lately and a dip sounds like heaven!
🙂 IG stories told me you went apple picking- I hope you saved some for me 😉
Haha I saw the picture and was like WTF IS THIS PORNOGRAPHY? Then I thought, “I’d hit that.” Kudos to you sir.
omg STOP. I’ve had so many complaints about it!!!!
