Ants On A Log!

Ants On A Log were always my favorite preschool snack, and I still love them today! With only 3 ingredients, they're so easy to make. Just spread the peanut butter and sprinkle some raisins, voila!

They're actually not bad for you either. Peanut butter has healthy fats and protein, celery is low-calorie (actually negative calorie, it takes more energy to digest it than it provides), and raisins have concentrated nutrients.

On Monday my boyfriend and I were hungry at his house with hardly anything to eat, vegan or not. We were able to scrounge up the ingredients for these (he was going to eat some blood sausage but I threatened with no kisses for the rest of the day if he did. It was promptly returned to the fridge.) The picture is of him stuffing his face and holding part of our masterpiece.

What's your favorite childhood snack?

I love dipping a banana in almond butter. But ants on a log is a great snack too!

Oh my goodness that is definately one i'm going to try- i've never heard of them and i'm 25!!!

My favourite childhood snack, hmm that's a tough one,probably oranges turned into sail boats with jelly (and now i've found veggie jelly i could remake them) and a flag pole with cherries on! My Mum was creative!

Great post!

OMG - I forgot about ants on a log! I don't like celery so when I was a child my mom used to put peanut butter and rasins on something else. Banana maybe? She died 10 years ago - I wish I could ask her what it was!

I'm still fond of the ol' PBJ and I love that it's a perfect vegan food! Add a glass of cold soy milk and I'm in heaven. I eat this several times a week. :-)
