Ants on a Log

Since it's been a while since I posted any snack recipes, I thought it was time to post a new one! One of my favourite snack foods as a child was the famous "Ants on a Log"...a celery log smothered in peanut butter and topped with raisin ants.

All you need for this VERY simple recipe is:
  • Celery
  • Peanut, almond, or sunflower seed butter
  • Raisins or Craisins®
Start off by loading the centre of the celery pieces with the butter of your choice. If you want to pack these as a school snack, sunflower butter is a great choice since it is peanut-free. Next, add the "ants" to the celery log by sprinkling raisins or Craisins® (or both!) on top.
Now it's crunch time!

Tip: Serve Ants on a Log with slices of apple, the pair make a great combo :)
