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:
- Spread some nut butter on the celery stalks.
- 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.
