My friend Casey wrote an excellent post on creating the Starbucks experience at home and for much-less than what they charge. Rather than share all her thoughts here, I figured you should check out her blog yourself and hopefully, in the process, you'll have a found a new blog to read often. She's awesome!
I love the blueberry oat bars Starbucks offers and Casey shared a copycat recipe from the wonderful Pioneer Woman herself. I made it this morning and it took all of 10 minutes to prepare. I used Trader Joe's Blackberry jam (instead of apricot) and let me tell you, I wanted to eat the whole pan.
But, I did eat alot. And I did share with our friends at the park today.
And I'm just sayin', but I think they taste MUCH better than Starbucks' version. Much. I'm looking forward to tomorrow's cup of coffee so I can eat more of this goodness.
Make yourself some.
And read Casey's fantastic post if you are a Starbucks lover, too.
