Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store the Bars

These bars should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature. They keep well for three days after baking.

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 level off the access by scraping with a knife. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour causes the flour to compress and you will get more flour than the recipe calls for.

What Kind of Oats Should I use?

You want to use rolled oats, sometimes called old fashioned oats. Using quick oats will not give the bars the correct texture .

Can I use Frozen Strawberries?

You want to use fresh strawberries for this recipe. If you only have frozen berries you will want to bring them to room temperature before using them.
