Mix up your energy bar routine with Skratch Labs Cookie Mix ($8.50, Skratchlabs.com), which has a list of just seven simple ingredients—fewer than a lot of sports nutrition bars. To make, the mix only requires an egg, a stick of butter and a cup of your favorite mix-ins, such as fruit, nuts or chocolate chips. Made with cinnamon and oats, the cookies have an oatmeal raisin-esque flavor and, when individually wrapped, are tasty homemade snacks to fuel rides. Or consider them an easy solution to bringing dessert to a fall party! Some of Skratch’s favorite mix-in suggestions: raspberries with white chocolate and almonds, peanut or almond butter with Nutella, savory-sweet bacon with maple syrup and chocolate chips, or bananas and blueberries.
