Totally Tasty Kid-Made M&M Energy Bites

This is an easy recipe for kids to help with in the kitchen, as it just involves measuring, stirring and rolling the balls – all great fine motor skills to work on.

How to Make M&M Energy Bites

Have your kitchen helper assemble your ingredients with you:

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (you can substitute sun butter to make allergy friendly)

  • 1/2 cup M&Ms (no M&Ms? Substitute just about anything—chocolate chips, raisins...)

  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed, saving the M&Ms until last to prevent the colors from bleeding or the shells from cracking.

Once you have fully mixed the no-bake dough, cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.

Once chilled, roll into tablespoon-sized balls.

Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.

Makes about 20-25 balls.
