Gopher Bars

On my campus, we work with some pretty amazing students.  One group of students has worked especially hard the last few weeks by putting in several long nights in a row to allocate funding for student organizations for next year.  For a couple of years, I sat in on the aptly-named “BudgetFest,” where they ask questions of the groups.  This year, although I didn’t sit in, I thought I would bring some snacks to the event and help give a little boost here and there.  These Gopher Bars, probably named for the University of Minnesota, were a quick and easy fix to throw together and take to the campus.  The recipe came from a friend of my mom’s, which I located in the beloved recipe binder.
