No-Bake Monster Cookie Energy Bites are packed full of healthy energy-boosting ingredients! Kid-approved!
Quick and healthy snacks are my favorite! I’ve been making my favorite No-Bake Energy Bites for years but decided to tweak the recipe in a way that my boys would love even more. They both love M&M’s, especially the mini ones so I made them these No-Bake Monster Cookie Energy Bites with plenty of fun and colorful mini M&M’s and they thought it was so cool!
They, of course, loved the M&M’s as well as the peanut butter in it. And little did they know it was packed full of healthy ingredients!
The ingredients are simple but pack a powerful energy punch!
Peanut Butter- Full of protein, fiber, and potassium. It gives you an energy boost.
Oats- Filling, whole-grain, full of fiber and so much more!
Honey- Natural sweetener and full of vitamins.
Flax Seed- High in Omega 3, full of antioxidants and vitamins.
Chia Seed- Full of Iron, Omega 3, and even more vitamins and minerals.
(Optional) Wheat Germ- Boosts immune system, full of nutrients.
And I could go on and on why all these ingredients are good for you but those are the highlights!
