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!)
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
Trail Mix with nuts & M&Ms (separate the raisins and M&M’s to save for the end)
Fruit Trail mix
really you can add WHATEVER you want!
Take your ingredients and blend them in your magic bullet or food processor. (affiliatelink)
Empty into a bowl.
Add almond butter, oats and granola
Put them into the bowl.
Add your raisins and M&M’s
Roll them into balls and let them harden in the refrigerator.
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!
