These protein cookies with M&M’s are so good!  You see, our kids love to have sweet treats, but we really try to limit it.  I don’t like to give them cookies or candy when they can have fruits and vegetables instead.   On the other hand, I don’t want to ignore all of their requests (I don’t want to have our kids sneaking food, because I wouldn’t let them have any when they asked… I’ve seen them do that before!)

protein cookies with m&ms

This recipe provides the best of both worlds.  It is full of protein and nutrients, but it gives them a little bite of something sweet mixed into it, so everyone is happy (mom & the kids!) 

1/4 c. walnuts or pecans
Almond Butter
Trail Mix with nuts & M&Ms  (separate the raisins and M&M’s to save for the end)

I usually keep them in a air-tight container in the refrigerator.

To keep them in the 100 calorie range, I just keep them at a snack size. 🙂  They are VERY healthy!
