  5. Stir in rest of ingredients just until all ingredients are incorporated.

Recipe Notes

- I like to line the pan with parchment paper.

-The original recipe has a 15-20 minute baking time, but the bars were never cooked enough. I usually bake for about 25 minutes.

-These bars are best when cooled and cut into small pieces and refrigerated.
