(I've been reading the Snack Girl blog lately and loving it. It's a very user friendly blog with great ideas for healthy snacks. Today she sent over a guest post to share with you. Thank you snack girl)
Let your imagination run wild with this snack. Maybe you don't like ants - so these can be "frogs on a log" and you can be the alligator. Sneak up to the unsuspecting frogs and CHOMP!
This kid friendly snack can be made with cream cheese or peanut butter. If you are watching your weight, try a whipped cream cheese for fewer calories.
Dress these up with almond butter or dried cranberries. Skip the celery completely and use an apple. Whatever you do, you will end up with a great tasting combination of fruits, vegetables, protein, and fun.
- Ants on a Slip 'n Slide - celery with peanut butter, a layer of honey, then the raisins
- Ants on Vacation - no raisins (for when you run out)
- Turtles on a Log - use chocolate chips instead of raisins
