Want to add a little fun to your kiddos’ school lunch boxes (with a sneaky side of extra nutrition, as well)?! Make these no-bake monster energy balls for a fun lunchbox side that’s (mostly) healthy- but feels like a treat!

Packed with healthy fats from peanut (or sun) butter, coconut, coconut oil and chia seeds- with the addition of mini m&ms (or chocolate chips) for a little fun, these easy to prep snacks are delicious and filling enough for the whole family- in or out of the lunchbox.

Chef Tip:

  • Don’t skip the refrigeration time! The cold helps the coconut oil firm up, making the balls stick together.
  • If mixture is sticky, wet hands lightly before rolling.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 10 days.
