    Hi just wondering how you store these? I have 2 little ones so it’s nice to have some quick to pull out for them :)

      You can just cut them into bars, wrap in foil, and either freeze or refrigerate in a large Ziploc! In the fridge they will last a week-ish. Enjoy!

    What does “fork checking” mean?

      Just stick a fork into the middle of the bars, and if it comes out clean, they are cooked and done. If it comes out goopy, they need more time!

    Is there any way to omit or substitute something for the walnuts? Where I would like to take this has people who are either allergic to nuts or dislike walnuts in particular.

    Is there any substitute on flour? I am trying to cut back on it.
