Happy Ants on a Log Day! To celebrate this momentous occasion, co-created by us and our friends at Duda Farm Fresh Foods, we’ve created three unique Ants on a Log variations to go along with the classic recipe. Be sure to try all four!

It’s true when they say that some sandwiches are just more fun to eat without the crust. Do they say that? I’ll say that! These three sandwiches are all different and all equally delicious. Perfect for children and adults alike. Create a sandwich bar and allow everyone to make their favorite version. I’ve given you three varieties to start with, but there are many more options that would also be fun to try. With whole wheat bread and all natural peanut butter these crustless sandwiches are a great lunch option any day of the week!

These double chocolate peanut butter cups are so much better than store bought and they are super easy to make! The best part about them is that they are much lower in sugar than a typical peanut butter cup. And, thanks to the Mighty Nut powdered peanut butter filling, they are also a lot lower in fat! Once you try one, it will be hard not to eat them all.

I am crazy about brownies. They’re chewy, chocolate and oh-so-full-of-love. Loaded with Chocmeister, two types of chocolate and toasted almonds, these Milk Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Brownies are sweet, decadent and satisfying.

I don’t know many people who don’t love the chocolate and peanut butter combo; it’s the salty/sweet fusion that’s completely satisfying and addictive. If that’s your thing, you’ll be all over these chewy granola bars that are chock full of whole grain oats. As a complete bonus, these whip up fast and don’t require any baking!

Learn how to make a loaded homemade version of the quintessential on-the-go breakfast! These granola bars are packed to the brim with yummy ingredients like peanuts, dried cherries, and chocolate chips, and you can add in any of your own favorites as well. They’re also a great treat to pack for school lunches!

As a child growing up in South Africa, I used to read American Archie comics with total fascination. The things the characters talked about always seemed so exotic to me – even simple things like root beer and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I had not yet learned that jelly was the American version of our jam – and besides, we always ate our peanut butter sandwiches with golden syrup! These sandwiches still give you the caramelized syrup to go with your peanut butter, but also add a deliciously healthy twist with apple slices. This makes a great weekend breakfast treat!

I make all kinds of granola bars fairly often. They get me through the workday and fuel my long runs and hikes. I love them for their convenience! Practically all of my granola bar recipes start with a really good peanut butter, like Mighty Maple. With the peanut butter, I always add wholesome healthy ingredients like oats and dried fruit.
I like my granola bars extra chewy with lots of texture. I chose raisins, peanut butter chips, and chocolate chips as my add-ins for these granola bars. And each bite is bursting with peanut butter and maple flavors. These are a new favorite snack!

Making Graham crackers shouldn’t be intimidating. The process is very similar to making pie crust. You simply cut the fat into the flour, add Old Fashioned Smooth peanut butter and some honey, then pull the dough together with a little ice-cold water. A word of caution – don’t over mix the dough or you won’t get a nice, flaky bite. Likewise, add only enough water to help the dough stick together. Too much water will cause your graham crackers to be doughy. Try The Bee’s Knees or Mighty Maple peanut butter instead of Old Fashioned Smooth for fun.

When I was in school, my mother never bought me those cheese crackers with the peanut butter in the middle, despite how desperately I wanted them. So what did I do? I binged on them in college. The only problem with that is that they’re incredibly processed and honestly… not that good.

Homemade cheese crackers are fun to make and so much better than the store bought kind! This version is gluten-free and has an amazing texture that you don’t usually find with gluten-free baked goods.
