Energy balls are a favorite in my house. 

Just about every week in our house we make a batch to keep in the freezer for a quick snack or dessert. 

These monster cookie oatmeal energy balls are made with just 6 easy ingredients and taste like a monster cookie! 

They are my latest obsession and make an easy and tasty mid afternoon snack when you need an energy boost.

Mini m&m’s are perfect for these cute little protein balls! 

You can use regular size if you want, but I find the mini ones to be the perfect size for the energy balls.

Ingredients to make monster cookie energy balls

Protein Powder – I used vanilla protein powder for this recipe. 

Honey – the sticky sweetener needed to help it all stick together.

Creamy no stir peanut butteryou can use crunchy too, either will work. 

Rolled oats (old fashioned oats) – great for giving these the “monster cookie” taste and chewiness!

How to make the energy balls

All you need is just 6 ingredients and one mixing bowl to make this recipe!

Simply add all of your ingredients to a mixing bowl together.

Use a spoon or rubber spatula to mix it all together.

This will take several minutes, as the batter is thick and sticky. 

Be sure to mix it well so that all of the ingredients are distributed evenly.

Once you have mixed the batter, it should look like the picture below. 

The batter looks like cookie dough! 

It should be dry enough that it will not stick much to your hands.

Next, you will line a baking sheet with wax paper.

This will make cleanup super easy. 

My favorite way to get the right size of a scoop is to use a mini cookie scoop.

If you do not have one, just drop the batter by spoonfuls onto the wax paper.

Roll each ball with your hands to make the shape.

Once all of the monster cookie energy balls are rolled up, place the baking sheet in the fridge until they are chilled, around an hour.

From here you can transfer them to an airtight container or ziploc bag. 

My personal favorite way to store energy balls is in the freezer, but you can also keep these in the fridge for up to a week!

And there you have it!

Great for an afternoon pick-me-up, or a fast treat when you are craving something sweet. 

Each protein ball has 4g of protein in it! 

And what could be better than energy balls that taste like cookies?!
