Here are just some of the baked goods available at WildFlour, including bars, cupcakes, doughnut muffins, and turnovers.
Caramelized Apple Turnovers
Caramelized Apple Turnovers
Apples are caramelized in the oven with plenty of butter, sugar, and spice before being spooned onto sheets of house-made puff pastry and baked. The end result is a filling that's not too crunchy or too saucy, with a spicy, sweet, and fruity flavor. Turnovers are $2.50 each.

Sticky Bun
Sticky Bun
These caramelized pecan sticky buns ($3.00) are the bakery's signature item, and only available on Sundays, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (or whenever they run out). It's a labor intensive treat that requires 24 hours to complete. The dough is made ahead on Saturday and is also rolled into cinnamon rolls.
Double Chocolate Chip Cookie
Double Chocolate Chip Cookie
Lauren's top pick for a cookie is this double chocolate number ($1.50 each), which she says is more like fudge than a standard cookie. It's got a thin, crunchy outer layer (like a meringue) and a creamy chocolate center. Originally, white chocolate chips were used, but Lauren switched over to dark chocolate to make this a true double chocolate cookie.

Cinnamon Pecan Coffee Cake Muffin
Cinnamon Pecan Coffee Cake Muffin
This muffin ($2.25) doesn't make a strong first impression, but peel the brown paper down and you'll see large deposits of buttery brown sugar crumble scented with cinnamon. Texture-wise, the muffin is half way between a dense coffee cake and a light, fluffy muffin. It's sweet, but with salty elements and a caramel undertone. You're going to need a cup of coffee with it, and luckily, there's an espresso machine standing by.
Granola
Granola
The first incarnation of granola at WildFlour was in bar form, but now it's available plain by the pound ($6). You can also order a half-pound with a drizzle of milk if you're dining in. The granola is made with local honey, dried cherries and cranberries, and has heap of almonds. It's got a nice, toasty flavor and has big, boulder-like chunks of crunchy oats and nuts—so much so that's it's more like trail mix than cereal.
