I recently went to Clear Flour Bakery to “test out” some of their deliciousness. They’re an interesting bakery, in that, they are located in a small bakery, hidden away literally on the border of the town of Brookline and Allston. It’s not a bakery that you would discover while just passing by, you need to be looking for it. But it’s absolutely delicious and so worth seeking it out!
I tried out the Wheat Meal Cookie and the Trail Mix Cookie – I’ve been especially interested in bakeries that produce “healthy” baked goods, so I was eager to try the Wheat Meal cookie. I loved the cookie – it had the texture that I expected of wheat meal, and was still sweet enough to be called a dessert. I love crunchy cookies, and it was very crisp and yummy! It wasn’t loaded with butter, so I didn’t feel like I needed to immediately wash my hands upon consuming. $2 seemed an ok price for the cookie.
The Trail Mix Cookie was absolutely delicious! I’d definitely say I’d prefer this one to the wheat meal, but mostly because it had chocolate in it, and I’m obsessed with chocolate…It was a massive cookie (hard to tell in the photo), and was only $2.50! It would definitely be enough to split among 2 people, probably even 3. It had chocolate chips, oats, dried cranberries, and almonds in it. A true trail mix cookie. It also wasn’t dripping in butter, which was great.
Clear Flour also had some wonderful tarts that I wanted to try out – though they charge a whopping $16 for one! They weren’t single serving size, which is probably why, but I definitely want to bake some kind of tart now! They looked yummy.
