Back in the Sweet Swing of Things

With the end of the school year, preparing for our trip to Asia, traveling for 2-1/2 weeks, and jet-lag getting the best of me for the past week, I guess I took a little unintentional break from the blog. I had planned to have all these recipes ready to post before, during and after our trip, but it just didn’t happen and that’s okay. Life happens sometimes and priorities take precedence. It’s felt great to have a little break, but now I’m ready to get back in the swing of things and share all these yummy recipes I have up my sleeve. Like these No-Bake Monster Cookie Balls! They’re one of our favorite treats and sweet snacks right now. The kids love helping me make them and of course, we all love eating them!

Watch Me Make No-Bake Monster Cookie Bites

Step into the kitchen with me to make a batch of these little beauties!

Flour-Free and Simply Delicious

Just six simple ingredients is all it takes to get these balls rolling. No eggs, no added sodium, flour or white sugar yet they still have all the flavor of everyone’s favorite monster cookie dough. If you’re like me, you might even sneak a few bites from the spoon before rolling them into bite-sized balls that are easy to store and easy to eat. While not exactly monster cookie energy bites, they do have a little bit of protein from nut butter, a little bit of fiber from whole grain oats, and a whole lot of yum.

Once mixture is combined, use a cookie scoop to make 2-tablespoon sized mounds. Roll dough into smooth balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or enjoy right away. Once the balls have set, transfer them to an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

A Quick Treat Any Time of Day

We keep a container of these yummy little balls in the refrigerator for a quick treat any time of the day. We love eating them cold, especially in the heat of the summer, but you could certainly let them come to room temp and they’ll still hold their form just fine.

  1. I’m confused by amount of oats- especially looking at doubling/tripling the recipe. Is it two and a half cups of oats? If I use the 2x recipe it’s four, One cups? Or 3x recipe is 6 one and a half cups?
    There’s a distinct possibility I just haven’t had enough coffee yet today, but I’m at a total loss. Help?!

    1. Hi, Sleepless! The recipe calls for 2 and 1/2 cups of oats. If you double it, that’s five cups. If you triple it, that’s 7 and a half. Good luck!

    1. Hi, Caitlin! Absolutely! They freeze really well for up to three months. To freeze, place in a single layer a baking sheet and freeze for 1 hour. Then put them in a baggie or freezer safe container. To defrost, thaw in the fridge overnight. Hope this helps! Enjoy!

  2. Do you have to have honey or can you use
    Surgar and do you have to use chocolate chips
    Or can you leave those out

    1. Hi Bru! You need the honey or a similar in texture substitute (like agave or maple syrup) to help bind the balls together. You can definitely leave the chocolate chips out. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Annette! I don’t provide nutritional information at this time because everyone uses different brands of ingredients which often have differing nutritional values. I would recommend plugging the ingredients you used into a free online nutrition calculator like: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/recipe/calculator Hope this helps. Enjoy!

  3. I just made these and I added coconut flakes and raisins and took out the m&ms. Can’t wait to enjoy them 😋

  4. These are on repeat at my house! I like to have a batch going at all times. They are great to cut that after dinner sweet tooth!

  5. I didn’t have good honey to use, so I subbed the 1/2 cup of honey for a 1/2 cup of sugar and added 1/4 cup of butter. Turned out great!
