Last week I made a trip to our local Farmer’s Market in Copley Square for the ﬁrst time this season. In addition to the incredible asparagus, abundance of wild mushrooms, and fresh cut ﬂowers to peruse, I was on a mission to treat myself to a bag of my very favorite oatmeal cookies from the Siena Farms/Sofra Bakery stand. However, after browsing the usual selection to no avail, I was sadly informed that they had discontinued that particular cookie.
Heartbroken, I went ahead and purchased their Earthquakes: dense chocolate covered in powdered sugar, but no whole grains to be found. And while all of their baked goods are incredibly delicious, the chocolate treats just didn’t hit the spot like my beloved oatmeal cookies that I had been waiting for all winter long.
My misfortune had me thinking about the ways in which whole grains can be overlooked in baked goods. I never craved oatmeal cookies – until I had a cookie like this. Whole grains can take your desserts to a whole new level. Don’t knock it until you try it!
