Ants on a Log

Ants on a Log
This is a classic American kids' snack that is so simple my Little One can make it. Many of us learned the "recipe" from Scouts.  Thought I'd post it here for a bit of nostalgia for my American readers, and a nice snack idea for International readers.

When people ask, "What do Vegans find to eat?" they never think about the fact that they grew up eating fun, simple things like these!

Ants on a Log
Clean Celery and cut it crosswise, but not lengthwise into sticks
Spread inside with Peanut Butter
Top each "Log" with exactly THREE "Ants" (Raisins)
(My Little One is quite adamant - the recipe calls for exactly 3! No more, no less! ; )


These are great for an afternoon snack, picnic, or hiking treat.


  1. Thanks for reminding us of those...we've seen real ants on our peony (they help remove the wax so the buds can open)! And this is such a nice snack.

    1. Great to see you, Martha : ) I enjoyed your recent butterflies post - dd was delighted to see her friends in your post.


Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
