These monster cookie granola bar bites are one of our favorite healthier snacks because they satisfy your sweet tooth. They have no eggs, no flour, and no added white sugar (skip the m&ms and chocolate chips if you don’t want any sugar). They’re much healthier than grabbing a cookie for a sweet treat.
I love having a healthier snack ready in the afternoon when my younger kids wake up from their nap and my oldest gets home from school. These monster cookie granola bites are perfect for that, because I like them, and my kids like them!
These are the perfect post work out snack too. I’ve been getting back into exercising slowly after having Rosie. I’ve been running on our treadmill again, and doing high fitness once a week. I love grabbing one or two of these when I’m done for that perfect little burst of energy.
They only take a few minutes to make, so I like making them first thing in the morning, then throwing them in the fridge to get nice and cold. Then they’re ready to eat in the afternoon, or when we’re heading out the door to run some errands.
How to make no bake monster cookie granola bites?
These monster granola bites are so easy to make! You’ll throw all the ingredients into a large bowl, and stir them together till you have a nice sticky mixture. You just need oats, peanut butter, honey, mini m&ms and mini chocolate chips. (Like I said before, if you want them even healthier you can leave the chocolate pieces out).
You’ll want to wet your hands with cold water, or spray them with cooking spray cause the mixture is pretty sticky. Then you’ll roll it up into small 1 to 1 1/2 inch sized balls. You’ll want to wash your hands after every few as the mixture starts to stick to your hands and fingers more.
Place them onto a baking pan lined with a silicone liner, or parchment, as you make them. Then place the pan in the fridge to let the balls harden and set a bit. This should only take an hour or two, then they are ready to enjoy!
How long do granola bites last?
These stay good in the fridge for about a week. And they’re also great to freeze if we’re not going to eat them all at once. They should stay good in the freezer for 4-6 months. You can eat them straight from the freezer, or let them thaw for a couple hours in the fridge.
You’ll want to store them in an airtight container, a ziplock bag or pyrex should work great!
These energy balls are so good, the trick is going to be controlling myself to just eat one or two when I have a sweet craving and need a little energy.
