Snack Attack: Red Ants on a Log

I'm sure everyone and their mother has had ants on a log, but I thought I'd share a little twist on the recipe. Mine is called Red Ants on a Log or Crants on a Log.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Washed celery stalks (trim off the end bits)
  • Peanut butter or Almond butter
  • Dried Cranberries

This is really complicated so pay close attention:

  1. Spread some nut butter on the celery stalks.
  2. Carefully place dried cranberries so they stick to the nut butter.

OK, I know this isn't some new breakthrough snack invention by any means, but it's definitely tasty and worth reminding you about. Since cranberries are one of the Top 5 Foods for Women, this is a delicious way to get those antioxidants. The peanut butter is also a great source of protein as is almond butter which also contains calcium. Plus this snack is fun and easy to make, and fun and easy to eat.

Hey Fit :WAVE: Could you give us the nutritional breakdown of Ants on a Log - SVP? I just revisited this snack idea. I was interested before and never did try it. I just neow realize that the high sugar of the dried fruit and the peanutbutter fat has me vary... But it sounds good! :DROOL:

I've heard of ants on a log but never knew what it meant. This sounds really good, though. I was just chowing on some craisins yesterday after I took the bebe to the park!

Craisins sound much better than raisins. One could also use dried cherries if on hand.
