Believe it or not there are still more baked goods to talk about from my multiple trips to Francois Chocolate Bar. According to Wikipedia a financier is a small French cake, often mistaken for a pastry. In this case, it’s actually a light-ish teacake made with almond flour. It tastes like an ultra-fancy brownie with a unique chocolate-almond flavor. It isn’t too buttery or too sweet either. I also noticed that it keeps well compared to other baked goods as it was still decent a day later.
