These monster cookie energy bites have been a staple in our home since our daughter was born!
I don't really have a lot of time to bake these days. (Heck, I got up for the day after baby's 4:30 AM feeding just to write this post. Helloooooo sleep regression!) But I've found that these monster cookie energy bites are the best to throw together on days when time flies.
I can make this entire recipe from start to finish in 15 minutes! Even though Ella takes incredibly short naps, I can still find time to fill a container with a batch of these.
Plus, since I've been breastfeeding, I've been craaaaazy hungry! These energy bites satisfy my hunger while also helping me retain my milk supply. They've got a good balance of fat, carbs and protein, and they're perfect to grab on the go.
Simply put - this recipe is a smart choice when you don't have time to put thought into your snacks. Make a batch at the beginning of the week and you're all set for smart snacking!

The Quick, No-Bake Method:
Besides the fact that these monster cookie energy bites taste amazing, they're also super fast to throw together. My fellow mamas will understand. What is personal time, anyway? Does it exist?
I use an electric mixer to combine all the ingredients (again - a huge time saver!), but you can hand mix if you want. Literally dump all the ingredients in a bowl, mix together, roll the mixture into bite-sized balls, and store in the fridge. You're all set!
Like I previously mentioned, I typically make a batch of these at the beginning of the week and snack on them throughout the week. They can refrigerate well in an airtight container for about a week - if you can keep them around that long!
And that's really it! Super fast, super simple. Check out the recipe below!
If you can't find mini M&Ms to fit the monster cookie theme, mini chocolate chips are an easy substitute. Also, peanut butter protein powder could be a tasty substitute in place of vanilla. Feel free to add more protein or less honey to your mixture - just be careful that it doesn't become too chalky, or the balls won't bond together well.
