I love most bakeries and baked goods out there from Flour Bakery, Kickass Cupcakes, Maxim Coffee House to Momofuku Milk. However, there are few bakeries which offer enough of a variety for vegans or gluten-free folks. Wildflour amply fills this void. Wildflour Vegan Bakery is a charming bakery and juice bar located in Pawtucket, several doors down from the Garden Grille. They serve take away items, coffee, baked goods and juices.
I was amazed by Wildflour’s gluten-free options including focaccia bread, pumpkin and banana coconut muffins, raspberry cream cheese brownies, chocolate chip cookies and lemon vanilla cupcakes. This variety clearly displays the possibilities for gluten-free or vegan baked goods.
Our friend took a Ginger Shot for $1.00, which came with a slice of refreshing cucumber. Additionally, you can make customized fruit smoothies and variations of the green smoothie including the Al Green (my favorite AG tune, How Can You Mend A Broken Heart) spinach, kale, cucumber, celery, apple, lemon, parsley green smoothie ($7).
For savory baked goods, the Caramelized Onion Rosemary Scone looked pretty amazing and was half off before closing. I have tried my hand in making scones (cheddar scallion scones) and will have to try this flavor combination sometime.
The raspberry tiramisu (BMH’s tiramisu) cupcake looked fantastic for $2.95.
Wildflour also sells raw items including coconut cheesecake, chocolate ganache, coconut macaroons and a raw version of the Oreo or Raw-reo (BMH recipe for Blood Orange Oreos). There were too many options to sample and clearly this bakery warrants another visit very soon. My friend and I picked up the gluten-free lemon vanilla cupcake and the gluten-free chocolate coffee cupcake.
Between the two, I would get the chocolate coffee cupcake again. The taste of gluten-free chocolate espresso cupcake was out of this world. The frosting had a hint of espresso and was nicely sweetened and the rich, chocolate coffee enhanced cake was mouth-watering.
The gluten-free chocolate chip cookie was nice and chewy in the center and was generously filled with semi-sweet morsels. I have made gluten-free chocolate chip cookies before, but these were nice and chewy and more like a traditional Toll House cookie.
The gluten-free lemon vanilla cupcake was also very decadent, creamy lemon frosting with a nice vanilla cake.
I can not wait to return to Wildflour again and try their other goodies.
