TIPS:

Use a Mature Starter

For the best flavor, use a mature sourdough starter that has been fed within the last 12-24 hours. This ensures the tanginess is pronounced but not overpowering.

Storage and Freezing

Store your sourdough chocolate chip cookie bars in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. For longer storage, freeze the bars in a single layer on a baking sheet before transferring them to a freezer-safe bag or container. They can be frozen for up to 3 months and enjoyed after thawing at room temperature.

FAQs:

Can I use whole wheat flour?

Yes, you can use up to half of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour. This will add a slightly nuttier flavor and increase the fiber content.

Do I need to refrigerate the dough?

Refrigerating the dough is not necessary, but if you prefer thicker bars, chilling the dough for 30 minutes before baking can help achieve that texture.

Can I use sourdough discard?

Absolutely! Just make sure your discard is not too old to avoid overly sour bars.
