We previously wrote a review about The Protein Bakery’s brownies, and we promised that we would write another review about them, with the exception that this one would focus on their protein cookies. The Protein Bakery says: “We chose the name Protein Bakery, for a good (and healthy) reason. Muscle-building protein is a huge component in all our delicious cookies, brownies and blondies. Every delectable, guilt-free bite is high in dietary fiber, low in gluten, and delivers up to 5 times more protein than the average baked treat”. We’re going to break up our review of The Protein Bakery into a couple different articles, allowing us to focus on their brownies and cookies without getting too distracted by either one. They also say: “Our trans-fat free, preservative free, and wheat flour-free recipes are also nutritionally balanced. We combine natural ingredients like heart-healthy rolled oats, light brown sugar, and the finest chocolate”. To learn more about The Protein Bakery, be sure and head to their web-site for more information on their line of products.
OK, so the first cookie we tried out from The Protein Bakery was their Chocolate Chocolate Chip cookie, which as you can guess from its name, is loaded with chocolaty goodness. The cookie is made with a decent amount of cocoa powder in addition to the liberal amount of chocolate chips that are scattered throughout the cookie, making it quite an indulgence to say the least. Texturally, it isn’t hard or tough like you think it would be, it’s actually soft and chewy as if it came straight from the oven. Moving on to our next protein packed treat, we headed for their Peanut Butter White Chocolate Chip cookie. This cookie was heavy on both peanut butter and white chocolate chips, giving it a somewhat sweeter and bolder flavor than we expected. If you love peanut butter then we think you’ll be a fan of this cookie, simply because peanut butter is the main flavor. The white chocolate chips add a touch of sweetness and texture to this cookie, both of which we think you’ll really enjoy. Continuing with our peanut butter trend, we thought we would try out their Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookie. All we were hoping for with this flavor was strong notes of both peanut butter and chocolate, simply because it’s a great flavor combination–as everyone is already fully aware of. This cookie delivers on both peanut butter and chocolate chips; however, it wasn’t like biting into a Reese’s PB Cup or anything. Lastly, we took a look at one of the safer flavors they have to offer, but their Oatmeal Cranberry cookie is nothing to complain about. This cookie has a more traditional flavor to it, but if you’re looking for a cookie that’s heavy on oats and cranberries, this cookie is all you’d ever want. Our testers loved every cookie that had peanut butter or chocolate in it, so they would tell you to try those out; however, everything we’ve reviewed for The Protein Bakery has been pretty tasty overall. Overall (4 out of 5).
The pros are that the cookies have a decent amount of protein in them, the texture is soft and chewy, the cookies taste like their namesake, you can buy them online, and it’s a safer way to have your cake and eat it too.
The cons are that you might eat more of these cookies than you normally would, simply because you think they’re much healthier for you, and they have a decent amount of sugar in them.
