These fun little energy bites are just like eating monster cookie dough. There is no baking, chopping or work involved. Just stir up the goodness and roll them into balls. Easy peasy and perfect for snacking!
These easy energy bites are loaded with the good stuff. They are tasty and quick to put together too. They taste like monster cookie dough, but are safe to eat raw.
Throw them in your lunch box, serve them as a fun after school snack or eat them after a workout. You’ll love having them around.
Sometimes in life you just need a little snack. Whether it’s an after school snack, or after work snack. Maybe it’s a 3:00 slump snack… or just because you’re hungry, bored, tired, happy, sad, silly or just because you’re awake snack.
No matter what the reason for the snack, these little gems are the perfect thing!
Monster cookies are an all time favorite treat in my family. They are so delicious and none of us can say no when MiMi bakes up a batch.
She used to freeze the dough so she could bake up a few fresh cookies each day after school. Homework is a lot more tolerable when there’s a plate of warm and fresh cookies around!
While keeping some dough in the freezer to bake up is a great time saver, sometimes there us no dough in the freezer and sometimes turning on the oven feels like a bit too much. I’m sure we’ve all been there.
That is where these little balls of delight come in. They whip up in a couple of minutes flat.
They don’t take anything more than a bowl and spatula so they are perfect for little helpers as well. Plus with no raw eggs or flour, there is no concern about eating the dough. That’s the finished product!
You can even eat them right away, though they are more set up and the texture evens out if you refrigerate them for a bit.
So if you love monster cookies…. (me!)
Or if you love cookie dough…. (me!)
And you like quick and easy treats… (me!)
If you need a little pick me up, fun after school snack, project to do with the kiddos, after workout treat, fun roadtrip snack or a million other reasons, these puppies are for you!
My husband loved them because they weren’t too sweet. Little Dude loved them because of the fun colored candies.
I love them because peanut butter, oatmeal and chocolate happen to be three of my favorite food groups. Maybe I can work some frosting in on the next batch to have all of my bases covered. 😉
