This fun and tasty savory-sweet snack includes almond butter, leafy greens, and chewy goji berries. If you loved ants on a log, you will love ladybugs on a leaf.

Goji berries are such a fun and delicious ingredient to keep in your pantry. They can easily be used in place of raisins or any dried fruit. You can serve them straight from the bag, all chewy and super sweet, or soak them to plump them up and soften their texture and mellow the flavor a bit. I love adding goji berries to muffins and my morning lemon tea as well.

Ladybugs on a Leaf

Serves 1

  • 3 teaspoons

    almond butter

  • 3

    large romaine lettuce leaves

  • 3 teaspoons

    goji berries

Soften the almond butter for easy spreading — you can do this in a microwave or just let the almond butter come to room temperature.

Spread a teaspoon of the softened almond butter down the center of the leaf, then add a teaspoon of berries to the almond butter. Repeat with the other romaine lettuce leaves.
