Black Friday Energy Bar

Ingredients

  • 1 packet Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie Mix
  • 1/2 cup butter OR coconut oil, softened
  • 1  egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup dried blueberries
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup dried golden raisins
  • 1 cup cinnamon chips OR white chocolate chips, melted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cookie mix, butter or oil, egg, and water. Mix together until a thick dough forms.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients (except the cinnamon chips). Mix well.
  4. Press the dough into an 9×11″ pan which has been generously greased and floured. Bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the cookies are completely baked through and the edges are deep golden brown.
  5. Cool completely before turning the pan out onto a clean wooden cutting board. Slice all the edges off with a sharp knife, then cut the remaining pieces into 9-12 large rectangles.
  6. Place the melted cinnamon or white chocolate chips into a zip-top baggie. Snip the corner from the bag, then pipe a drizzle of the melted chips over the top of each rectangle. Allow to harden before storing.
  7. Store at room temperature for up to 3 days. Eat on the go for extra energy and enjoy!
