On Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving mad shopping spree, there's no time to stop and eat. Instead, try these sweet and sassy homemade Energy Bars to get your shopping on and keep it going!
You've got a list a mile long. And a pocket full of money just waiting to be burned on the best deals of the season. Now all you need is a breakfast you can consume on the go. One hand on the shopping cart, one hand fueling your body.
Let's face it. The competition is tough. The lines are long. If you want to get this year's hottest toy, you've gotta bring you’re A-game. And you can't do that unless you're well rested and well fed. Oh, heck. Forget well rested. You just gotta feed yourself like the pros.
And these easy Black Friday Energy Bars
, chock full of fruits and nuts, have just the power you need to work your way to the front of the store before the sun has even nodded its little nose into the sky. It's Black Friday. It's hardcore shopping. Today is your day.
The best part about these Black Friday energy bars is that you can make them the day before and they are so simple! A packet of Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie mix makes quick work of the task.
Just mix up that oatmeal cookie mix, then toss in handful after colorful handful of dried fruits and nuts. Mix it all up well.
Press the dough into a glass baking dish.
Then bake until golden brown. How easy is this recipe?!
Once the bars have cooled, turn them out onto a wooden cutting board.
Slice into palm-sized squares…
Then drizzle each bar with melted cinnamon chips or white chocolate chips to add a touch of panache.
Allow the drizzled chocolate to cool before packaging up and toting with you on your Black Friday shopping blitz!
