We know what you’re thinking. You don’t really need a recipe for ants on a log. But we feel like, just maybe, you need a reminder of their greatness. C’mon: They’re like a guaranteed way to get your kid to eat a green vegetable, and they’re a damn fine snack even if you’re not 4 years old.

Oh, and BTW, don’t feel limited to the traditional peanut butter and raisin combo. Obviously, you could swap almond butter or another nut—or nutless—butter, and dried cranberries or cherries can replace the raisins…or go wild with carrot sticks, hummus and pine nuts for an entirely new take. (No guarantees your kid will eat hummus though. That’s on you.)

RELATED: Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Ingredients:

2 stalks celery, sliced into sticks

3 tablespoons peanut butter, almond butter or other nut butter
