We’ve been trying to eat healthier here in our home, which is proving hard to do right after the Christmas holidays! We were gifted candy, cookies, and chocolate – so much chocolate – and in order to get rid of them, they have to be eaten..right?!
My favourite (and weakness) are Ferrero Rocher chocolates and we were gifted 3 boxes!!! Which I am totally fine with buuuut I’m just getting over my December cookie diet and will be sitting on a Mexican beach in just two months soooo like I said, we’re trying to eat healthier.
A super quick and ridiculously easy recipe for a “healthier cookie” are energy bites..balls..whatever you want to call them! These little balls of deliciousness are great to have in the fridge for a quick bite on the go or a simple side to your breakfast. My husband started school last week so they are also a great snack for him while sitting in class.
The best part – there are endless flavours! So many options for making energy bites! I recently saw a s’mores flavour and seeing s’mores are a favourite of mine, I know I have to try those ones out next! Do you have a favourite flavour?
Monster Energy Bites
Yields: 12-14 bites
1 cup oats (I used quick oats, old-fashioned oats work too!)
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup mini M&M’s
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- In a medium bowl, add in all the ingredients and stir to combine. The mixture will be very sticky! Refrigerate the mixture for at least a half hour.
- Remove from refrigerator and roughly scoop out a TBSP of the mixture and by hand, roll into a ball. Roll all the mixture into balls.
- Store the balls in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Or freeze them and pull out when needed!
