I’ve been experimenting a whole lot with baking here in Telluride. I’m trying to come up with amazing cakes, bars & treats that maintain the integrity of using whole food ingredients.

It has been a really fun journey & challenging at 10,000 feet. These Blackberry Lemon Cake Bars are exactly what I was looking for – sweet, gluten free and they have berries (my favorite!)

Frozen or fresh ones are great in this recipe. Whatever you have on hand.
