How Many Calories in Celery and Peanut Butter?

There are approximately 90-120 calories in one celery and peanut butter stick.  The calorie content does vary depending on the type of peanut butter used and the size of the stick. Some people like to cut a large celery stick up into several pieces before adding peanut butter, while other opt for the entire stalk of celery.
Celery and peanut butter is a low calorie, grab-n-go snack that can be quite satisfying for weight loss enthusiasts, or those trying to shed a few pounds.  Also, people who are busy and don’t have a lot of time to prepare a healthy snack find that celery and peanut butter can be very efficient in terms of preparation and very satisfying.
There are approximately 10 calories per stalk of celery.  It is the peanut butter that adds the bulk of the calories.
In one tablespoon of peanut butter there can be as many as 150 calories.  One tablespoon may be a lot to add to the top of your stalk, but at half the content you can reduce your calorie intake to 75 calories.  This is a light snack that can be very filling because of the protein found in the peanut butter.  Protein fills you up in between meals and makes you less likely to cheat on your diet, despite the low calorie content in the entire snack.
