Sweet treats for an athlete? [not sure to put this in here or the Food Forums]

My little sister is currently at a sports camp focusing on rowing [crew]. She loves the sport and is having a great time but she's requested a care package from home - specifically, cookies! Our grandma used to send us cookies in a shoebox so it's a strange yet delicious tradition in my family. She doesn't have much of a sweet tooth, at least not like I do, and prefers cookies with peanut butter or dried fruit as opposed to chocolate or marshmallows. We always include oats in our typical chocolate chip cookie recipe [about a cup & a half]. Curious if anyone had any other cookie suggestions? Or even desserts in general we could try at home once she gets back.
ps I did post this thread in the food forums, but I figured someone here might be able to give me some tips? haha

How about home-made energy bites. Two of these babies before a workout and I'm a machine. Likewsie, they're an excellent recovery snack as well. I added carob chips (not as sweet and healthier than regualr chocolate chips) to make it even more delicious.
