Extra tips for perfect Oatmeal chocolate chop bars:
- Butter must be at room temperature. To hasten this process, cut it into 1-inch pieces and set it on the counter for 30-minutes.
- Scoop some flour into the measuring cup, level it off, and use that as your measurement. You can prevent over-measuring the flour by doing this.
- Use eggs that are room temperature. Put the eggs in lukewarm water for a few minutes to hasten this process.
- Baking soda should bubble up soon away when added to vinegar to ensure that it is fresh.
- Line your baking tray with parchment paper. Line your tray with parchment paper that hangs over the sides for easy removal once the bars have baked. If you don’t have parchment paper, the cookie bars can be baked without it. Simply oil your baking tray before distributing the batter.
- Don’t overcook! Bake only until the center of the bars is barely set. These bars are supposed to be gooey.
