  • 3 stalks celery
  • 2 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 15 raisins
  • 2 tablespoon hummus
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts
  • 2 tablespoon cottage cheese
  • 5 grape tomatoes


  • Cut the celery into pieces that are 3 inches in length, for a total of 9 pieces.
  • Use a butter knife to spread the peanut butter into 3 pieces of celery, hummus into 3 pieces of celery, and cottage cheese into 3 pieces of celery.
  • Top with desired toppings. I pair raisins with peanut butter, pine nuts with hummus, and grape tomatoes with cottage cheese. 
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!


  • Prep ahead of time and cut the celery in bulk and keep in an airtight container. This cuts down on time when ready to prepare your Ants on a Log.
  • Swap peanut butter with almond butter if there is a nut allergy.
  • Get creative with toppings! This is an incredibly versatile snack that can be sweet or savory. Think of other spreads like yogurt, cream cheese, and various nut butters. For toppings, think of any favorite fruit, vegetable or crunchy snack.
