Celery Snacks

I have come up with the Perfect Summer Snack!!!
Ant's on a log are not just for kids anymore!


Recently I started making Ants on a Log for my boy's.  You all know what Ant's on a Log are right? Peanut butter and raisins on a celery stick. 
Well my picky little eaters just like to lick the peanut butter off and leave the celery behind.
But in the process of trying to get them to eat them I kinda got hooked on them myself. And then I started getting creative. I have come up with several different delicious toppings for celery.
These would all be great for a picnic or potluck as well as just a great summer snack.

Peanut Butter, Walnuts, Coconut and Raisins. 
Yes,  it is as yummy as it sounds
Spread the peanut butter into the washed and dried celery stick.  Sprinkle on the coconut, walnuts, and raisins. I used both regular and golden raisins.  You could use Crasons as well.

Peanut Butter & Fruit
Here I have used cut up strawberries and grapes, but I think any fruit would taste great.


Chicken Salad on Celery

For this recipe, I have chopped up a piece of  pre-cooked chicken.  Mixed it with some mayo, added chopped walnuts and grapes. Seasoned with salt and pepper.


Tuna Fish & Apples on Celery
I mixed up my tuna fish with mayo and then added some chopped apples.  I like the extra crunch of the apples.  Then I topped it with some shredded cheddar cheese


Buffalo Chicken & Blue Cheese on Celery

This is my absolute favorite one.
Jake and I ate these for dinner one night.
I just chopped up a couple pieces of pre-cooked chicken, mixed it with some buffalo wing sauce and then drizzled  blue cheese dressing on top.



The toppings for celery are endless.  Just try to think of what you would usually add celery to and then switch the recipe around to top it to the celery.  I'm already thinking of a few more like, egg salad or fried rice.
Plus they are perfect if you are watching your carb intake.
I think I will be eating celery all summer long.
Enjoy!

  2. I used to love ants on a log when I was little, sadly my girls will not eat them at all :(
    All of these look so delicious though, I might just have to make them for myself!!
