Shout out to my friends over at myProtein for sending me a package of their Protein Cookies. All over instagram you’ll see different companies with high protein snacks, baked goods, bars, shakes, etc. It leaves me wondering, “are high protein snacks the future of snacking?”. First it was low fat, now it’s low carb. But what if we finally balance our snacks by making them low fat, low carb and high protein? Here’s my review of MyProtein’s Double Chocolate Chip Protein Cookie:
Nutrition Info Per Serving (1 Cookie)
Protein: 37.5 g
Carbohydrates: 20 g
Fat: 10 g
Awesome Chocolate Fix with No Guilt
I love that this is an extremely filling chocolate chip cookie, loaded with chocolate flavor and it’s a big cookie. It only has 20 grams of carbs and truth be told you only need to eat half of the cookie to feel satisfied. Half of this cookie is providing you with nearly 20 grams of protein, only 10 grams of carbs and 10 grams of fat. Smear 1 tbsp. of peanut butter on it and you have 20 grams of protein, 11 grams of carbs, and 16 grams of fat for an even more satisfying and guilt free snack.
Almost Too Much Whey
My only problem with this snack is the same problem you’ll find with most high protein snacks with this level of protein, it almost has too much protein for its own good. You’re left with a chalky sensation when you’re chewing because of the high concentration of whey protein. The high concentration of whey also makes the cookie very chewy but again, you’re not eating Grandma’s fresh baked cookies, high in fat and sugar. You’re eating a cookie with a purpose. This is something I’m used to and can easily get over. If you’re a bodybuilder, powerlifter, or an athlete training at a high intensity this snack is perfect. If you’re an average gym goer you could probably split these in half or opt for a lower protein treat on their website.
Overall I love this snack as a quick and easy breakfast with a cup of coffee or as a satisfying treat in between meals. Throw them in a 6 Pack Bag as an emergency snack in case you get stuck in traffic. If you like Quest bars, Pure Protein bars or basically any other kind of Whey Protein Meal Replacement treat, you’ll like these cookies. Plus, they’re cookies. You get to eat cookies with no consequences.
