Monster Cookie Energy Balls

5 from 1 review

If you love Monster Cookies, then these energy balls are for you! It’s like eating Monster Cookie dough, but in healthy little oatmeal bites. No bake, easy to make, great for kids and adults alike!


Units Scale
  • 2/3 cup creamy all-natureal peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1.25 cups gluten free old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds (or ground flaxseed)
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut (optional)
  • 2/3 cup chocolate candies (linked)


  1. Mix ingredients: In a large bowl mix together peanut butter, honey and vanilla until combined. Add in rolled oats, chia seeds (or ground flaxseed), shredded coconut and chocolate candies. Stir using a sturdy spatula or wooden spoon until combined then place bowl in freezer for 15 minutes to chill – this will make rolling the balls easier.
  2. Roll into balls: Line a medium baking sheet with parchment paper and begin scooping the energy balls and placing on the baking sheet. I use a medium cookie scoop, creating about 1.5″ sized balls. Roll between palms to create a smooth ball.
  3. Store: To freeze, place tray directly in freezer for 30 minutes, then transfer to storage container, layering as needed. If keeping in the fridge, it’s best to place energy balls in one layer but you don’t have to.
