Gluten Free Monster Cookie Balls

  • Total Time: 12 minutes
  • Yield: 32 balls 1x


If you need a delicious, filling, nutritious snack that's also simple to make, you need these Gluten Free Monster Cookie Protein Balls! They're the perfect on the go snack or after school snack for kids.


Units Scale
  • 1 can Dakota’s Pride Garbanzo Beans, (drained and rinsed)
  • 1/2 cup Simply Nature Creamy Peanut butter
  • 1 scoop Elevation Protein & Greens powder ((optional))
  • 4 tablespoons Simply Nature Wildflower Honey
  • 1/2 cup Millville Rolled Oats
  • 1 cup Southern Grover Mountain Trail Mix
  • 1/4 cup Baker’s Corner Mini Semi Sweet Morsels


  1. In a food processor bowl, add beans, peanut butter, protein powder, and honey. Pulse until sandy and well blended, about 60-90 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl at least once halfway through. 
  2. Pour bean mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add the oats, trail mix and morsels. Stir to combine. 
  3. Scoop a ping pong size of dough into your hands and gently squeeze into balls. The mixture may be too crumbly to roll between your palms but will come together when gently squeezed. Continue making balls until all the dough has been used. Enjoy immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. 


Substitute other types of nut butter if desired. You can increase protein powder to 2 scoops for more protein. You can substitute another type of trail mix. To make vegan, choose a vegan trail mix and vegan chocolate chips.
