Baked Rice Bars 101

First, just like you would when making cookies you need to blend the jam, margarine (or butter), sugar, eggs and lemon until it has a smooth consistency. In another bowl you’ll need to sift the dry ingredients together. Sifting is important as it will help the entire mix to blend more efficiently without any lumps of flour.

After the rice is added to the dry mixture, you will need to slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet mix. Add a little at a time and stir, continue until everything is well blended. Once you have your mix, fold in the fresh strawberries and nuts.

Note: Make sure to spray your pan before pouring your mixture in, this may seem obvious but it’s easy to forget. It will help you to take out your bars once they are done baking.
