It’s time for kids to head back to school, which means my kids won’t be home all day to graze through our pantry. But they will come home at the end of the day, needing a solid snack. These Monster Cookie Oat Balls are always a huge hit; they are filling, easy to make and super delicious.

Monster Cookie Oat Balls

Servings: 15 oat balls

  • 2 1/2 cups quick oats
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup peanut butter (I use natural creamy peanut butter.)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/4 cup M&Ms

In a large bowl, combine the oats, almond flour, peanut butter, honey, vanilla and salt; mix to combine. Stir in the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and M&Ms. Roll them into balls, then place them on a covered plate or in a plastic container, and refrigerate until ready to eat. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator (if they don’t all get eaten in one sitting).
