Ants on a Log variations


So….I had a stressful night last night.  My husband is in China for work, and I was woken up by my toddler around 2 am…..he had gotten sick. everywhere!!!!!  So after dealing with that, and spending the morning making sure he was feeling better, doing laundry and sanitizing most of our house. I decided I was going to spend nap time making something pretty to eat!

I emptied my pantry and fridge and made several variations of ” Ants on a Log”.  I had fun time tasting the different combinations.

I happened to have some celery in my fridge that I purchased for a recipe that I never made.  And remember my  Tuna Salad Ants on a Log that I made last year?  Well today’s snack was inspired by those.



Not only are these a healthy low carb lunch or snack, but they can be a fun way to motivate kids to eat healthy!  What a fun way to switch up snack time! You could even put together an Ants on a log” bar where your kids or friends can put together their own healthy snack!

Here are the combos I came up with. I am sure there are many more ways you can enjoy ants on a log.  I just used what I had in my pantry.
















Now you might think that some of these combos are a little crazy….You should see the combos that I Didn’t take pictures of!!! Remember I am nearly 31 weeks pregnant!  My favorites were the laughing cow cheese and apples and the PB and J.

I am sure you can come up with MANY different combos on your own!



  1. Oh no, poor baby!

    These look delicious. Pass me the version with Nutella and raisins first 🙂

  2. I also love cream cheese and green olives on celery.
