Apple and White Chocolate Streusel Bars are an autumn fave!
Fall is in the air around our neck of the woods! The leaves on the trees are starting to turn up in the mountains… so that means that it won’t be long until the reds, golds, and yellows are all around us down in the valley. I love to go hiking in the mountains. There’s something about being in the quiet, exploring the trails in nature, that’s so rejuvenating for me. I love nature wherever I happen to be! The ocean, the desert, the forest… they are all amazing in their own way. Mother Nature is so beautiful and diverse! Let’s get outside today and enjoy more of this fabulous world we live in!

A few helpful tips for baking at higher elevations:
- If you live 3,000 feet above sea level or more it is considered high elevation and may take longer to cook/bake.
- Adjustments are needed for 5000+ feet and above:
- Reduce baking powder: for each teaspoon, decrease 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon.
- Reduce sugar: for each cup, decrease 2 tablespoons.
- Increase liquid: for each cup, add 2 to 4 tablespoons.
- Increase oven temperature by 25 degrees F.
- Check if it is done a little early.
- This may take some trial and error to get it right for you.
