Monster Cookie Protein Balls

I made Monster Cookie Protein Balls today.  Best mom ever?

Ironically, “Mom” by Meghan Trainor was going through my head as I was preparing these.  “You might have a mom, she might be the bomb…..”  Haha!  Love that song!

I knew my kids would be excited when they got home from school and opened the fridge.

Since I hadn’t made these since probably last summer, I thought it would be a nice surprise.  And I was right…they were thrilled to have something other than the regular old everyday snacks we typically have in the cupboard.

And while these aren’t the same as actual monster cookies, they are definitely a good swap, without all of the added sugar.

How to Make Monster Cookie Protein Balls

This no-bake snack is simple to make, and when my kids are around I usually have at least one helper!

Start by gathering all of the ingredients.

Monster Cookie Protein Ball Mixture

YUM!!  Looks just like monster cookie dough!

You can start rolling into balls now, but I find that it’s a little less sticky if I refrigerate for about 10 minutes first.

I make mine slightly larger than a tablespoon, and end up with about 50 Monster Cookie Protein Balls.  If you prefer them larger, go for it.  Totally personal preference.

After shaping into balls, refrigerate until firm, then transfer to an air-tight container.

These can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer.  I typically keep in the refrigerator, but again….personal preference!
