Local and Healthy – Starbucks

Kitsilano Cookie

My hunt for the no longer available Peanut Butter Mini Cupcake led me to the Starbucks in Safeway. Little did I know that I would discover a local Vancouver bakery item – the Kitsilano Cookie. Known as the ‘healthy cookie’ by the barista, it is a blend of various seeds, raisins, oats, and chocolate chips. I especially loved the pumpkin seeds and the little gritty ones that I could not exactly identify. Most of the cookie was made up from these wonderfully nutritious ingredients and as a result was not very sweet. Most of the sweetness came from the raisins and the chocolate chips and there was hardly any filler dough. The barista was dead on – it is the healthy cookie. It was also surprisingly soft and moist, rather than the hard crumbly texture I had expected. For $1.95, I got a huge cookie with all the good stuff, leaving Safeway satisfied.
