No-bake cookies and desserts are going to be where it’s at for us this summer. At the moment, these monster cookie energy bites are high on our list of favorite eats. I’ve made them several times in the last couple of weeks and the requests for these sweet, little bites just keep on comin’. There are a few reasons we love this simple recipe, but I’ll start this discussion with the most obvious reason of all: they are plain ol’ delicious! 

The second reason we love these no-bake treats so much is that they are reasonably healthy. I certainly appreciate the vitalizing boost of protein and fiber that these little treats boast. These are also a gluten-free goodie that the whole family can enjoy. These energy bites are lighlty sweetened with honey and jazzed up with some little bits of semi-sweet chocolate and candy pieces… I mean, what’s not to love people?? 

And lastly, I should mention that these no-bake monster cookie energy bites are really quick and easy to make!


How to make no-bake monster cookie energy bites.

To whip up a batch of these tasty energy bites all you need are six simple ingredients: rolled oats, honey, peanut butter, vanilla extract, mini-chocolate chips, and (the star of the show in my children’s opinion!) mini M&M’s. 

Just combine all ingredients in a large bowl, roll the mixture into cute little balls, chill and then try your best not to eat them all in one sitting!

  1. Oh, yum! SO much flavor in a no-bake treat. These look terrific — neat recipe. Thanks!

  2. That is a really interesting cookie, for sure. I do love peanut butter!

  3. Seriously, we are looking for things just like this to have for “elevenses” each morning. We usually get a craving for something between out early breakfast and lunch and I suggested granola (your recipe, to be exact) but Mark wanted something less messy. Enter these monster cookie bites. Will have to make them without the M&Ms… but I think we will live. (Don’t tell your kids…)

    • Hi David, I know you have a big love for peanut butter, so I sure hope you like them!! Thank you! <3

  4. A stress free and delicious cookie recipe! The M&Ms are so addictive :-))
