Monster Cookie Energy Balls
Recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod
Easy, no-bake protein balls that will remind you of your favorite monster cookies! They only take 10 minutes to make and are the perfect grab and go snack!
Servings: 10 balls
In a medium bowl, combine the peanut butter, honey, and vanilla extract. Stir with a spatula until smooth.
Add the oats, protein powder, and sea salt; stir until well combined. If the mixture is a little dry, you can add 1 to 2 teaspoons of water. Stir in the chocolate chips and M&M’s.
Roll the mixture into small balls, about 1 tablespoon per ball. You can also use a cookie scoop to form the balls.
You can sprinkle the tops with a little flaky sea salt, if desired. Place in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
Make sure you use a creamy, drippy peanut butter. Costco’s natural peanut butter is my favorite. If your peanut butter is thicker, you can add just a little bit of water to help the mixture come together, if necessary.
I use Clean Simple Eats protein powder. The vanilla or chocolate peanut butter protein work great in this recipe. You can use your favorite band.
If you can’t find mini M&M’s or mini chocolate chips, you can use regular.
You can easily double this recipe!
