How to Make Healthy Monster Cookie Bites?
Not much to this recipe. Simply combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them together well. Then using a cookie scoop, portion out the bites and roll them into balls. Place bites onto a parchment lined baking sheet and you can either chill and store them in the fridge or freeze them.
Tips for Delicious Monster Cookie Protein Bites
- Make sure everything is mixed together really well before portioning the bites. If they're not, they won't hold together as well.
- Use rolled oats. It gives the bites a better texture. If you are in a pickle and only have quick oats, they will work.
- Use mini versions of the chocolate chips or M&Ms. The bites will hold together better.
- If you want even more texture in your bites, use crunchy peanut butter.
- For allergy or preference purposes, try a different nut or seed butter.
- Store in fridge or freezer for best results.
How to Freeze Protein Bites
Once the bites are all formed and on a parchment lined baking sheet, just pop the pan in the freezer. Freeze the bites for a hour or so and then place them in a air tighter freezer safe container or zip top bag.
To thaw: take out desired amount the night before and thaw in fridge or thaw on counter for 10-15 minutes. Or eat them frozen like my hubby and kids do!
