In the winter some of my favorite guilty pleasures are sweets. Adams® Natural Peanut Butter allows me to create healthy and yet tasty and satisfying snacks. This following recipe is a fun new twist on the old ants in a log. It’s deliciously tasty and even better when enjoyed on thee go!

lettuce wraps Peanut Butter Apple & Cucumber Lettuce Wraps Recipe

Ingredients:

  • Butter lettuce
  • 1/2 cup of Adams® Natural Chunky Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/4 cup chopped apples
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp honey

I started first by chopping all of my ingredients. I wanted bite size pieces so I diced them small. I used a chunky peanut butter and honey to hold it together.

3 Simply mix together until well combined.

If you’re going for a hike or staying active outdoors you could easily take this mixture with you and keep bread or butter lettuce in another container. I filled each piece of lettuce and served. The kiddos love them and they’re a fun new twist on the old ants on a log.

    I am transitioning to all natural products in our home. It’s an extension of our eating from scratch. It has been something of a process.

  2. saminder gumer says

    i make a natural difference at home by recycling and trying to compost. i make one in my community by volunteering to clean up the neighborhood as well as organizing blood drives.

  3. Tamar says

    I have started eating healthier for myself. In my community, we are crazy recyclers. I also help new moms.

  4. Sarah S says

    When I go hiking I always stop to pick up trash that others have left along the way. If everyone would do just a little bit to help, it would make a big difference.
