Pour dough into the lined baking pan and spread evenly in the pan. I find using your hands works best. Top with a few extra chocolate chips.

Baking for 27 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the middle only has a slight jiggle to it.

Let bars fully cool to room temperature in the pan before removing and slicing.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then scrape with a knife to level off the access. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour cause the flour to compress and getting more than the recipe calls for.

STORING THE Bars

Store bars at room temperature in an airtight container. They keep for 4 days after baking.

Can I use Quick Oats?

No, for this recipe you need to use rolled oats (also called old fashioned oats). Quick oats will change the texture of the bar.
