We previously wrote a review about The Protein Bakery’s brownies and cookies, and we swore that we would write another review about their awesome protein packed desserts, here is that review. 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”. 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.
This review is going to focus on 5 different and delectable flavors that The Protein Bakery offers: Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter White Chip, and Oatmeal Cranberry. The first cookie we started our review with was their Chocolate Chocolate Chip cookie, which is aptly given that name because it’s made with a cocoa base and loaded with chocolate chips. If you’re a chocolate fan, then this is the cookie for you, because it has an awesome chocolate base and a few chocolate chips scattered throughout. Texturally, the cookie is soft with a bit of a crunch from the chocolate chips. We weren’t really expecting the texture to be as good as it was, simply because we were imaging that it would be dry and hard from all of the added protein. After that, we tried their Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookie out, which was pretty much everything we were hoping it would be. The classic peanut butter and chocolate combination never ceases to fail, simply because it’s one of the best duos around. Next, we took a turn for the more classic cookie, and bit into their Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie. Nostalgia reigns supreme in this cookie, because you gets the strong presence of the oatmeal that goes perfect with the nice addition of chocolate chips. Our next cookie was the Peanut Butter White Chocolate Chip, and this cookie was pretty much the same as the peanut butter chocolate chip cookie, with the slight difference that this one was a bit sweeter. Perhaps the reason it’s sweeter is simply because of the white chocolate chips, but we thought we would just mention as a side note for anyone that wants a slightly sweeter cookie. Lastly, we tried out their Oatmeal Cranberry cookie, and this was another great flavor from The Protein Bakery for one reason–simplicity. The previous oatmeal chocolate chip cookie was simple, traditional and tasty; while this one is simple, tasty, and a bit nostalgic. Our testers loved the oatmeal and cranberry combination simply because they work well together, but it was also a nice change of pace from their richer and sweeter cookie flavors. Overall (4.5 out of 5).
The pros are that the cookies taste awesome, the texture of the cookies is soft, you can buy them directly from their online store, they have a ton of different products and varieties to choose from, and they have a decent amount of protein in them.
The cons are that they make you think they’re healthier than they really are, they have some fat and sugar in them, and you have to wait a couple of days for your awesome cookies or brownies to arrive.
