This one was almost too easy that I didn’t post. But then I thought, the easier the better right?
I was at my friend Lisa’s months ago when she served this tasty snack. Celery topped with peanut butter and raisins….how cute. And it really makes a great snack because it has a little bit of everything — vegetable, fruit, protein and fat.
People tend to think of celery as a nothing vegetable but it is quite nutritious and a great “starter vegetable” for kids (make sure they are old enough for raw veggies). It contains an excellent source of vitamin K (great for bone health) and a good source of folate, vitamin A and potassium along with other key nutrients in smaller amounts.
You can use almond butter in place of peanut — or another spread. The possibilities are endless. Big A mostly ate the raisins but I’m going to keep trying this one. Because like most kids, she likes to crunch! Anyone else make something like this at home?
-Celery (cut and washed)
-Peanut butter (or other spread)
Spread peanut butter on the celery and top with raisins. Repeat until you have enough to feed your clan.
