I jumped on the Lenny & Larry’s Protein Cookie bandwagon.
When I was in Penn Station and needed something to hold me over for the train ride home, I stopped in Duane Reade and hunted through the snack aisle and health aisle for something decent. Most protein bars/snacks are either $3+/bar or you can get 2 gross bars loaded with sugar alcohol for $3-$5. To my surprise Duane Reade had Lenny & Larry’s Protein Cookies and they were only $2 which was totally justifiable considering the macronutrients aligned perfectly with my needs (16 g protein, 48 g carbs, and 12 g fat for the whole cookie, a serving is 1/2 a cookie). I’m not really going to go into depth here but compared to other prepackaged high protein snacks here’s what you should know about Lenny & Larry’s Protein Cookies
1. Unbelievably good flavor (8/10).
I tried the double chocolate chip cookie (for lack of other options) which had a rich chocolate flavor unlike the flavor of processed cocoa alkali which you would generally experience from chocolate whey protein.
2. Best texture out of any protein snack I’ve ever tried.
It’s fair to have high expectations for cookies of any kind but a lot of times protein snacks are chewy, gritty, and leave a sandy feel behind. Lenny & Larry’s Protein Cookie is forgivably chewier than a normal cookie and the nutritional content alone makes up for the slight chewiness. Tossing it in the microwave on high for 15 seconds or the toaster oven for 60 seconds should get rid of that entirely.
3. Totally satisfying.
Again the macronutrient content from the cookie alone was enough to hold me over for 2-3 hours. If I had the opportunity to dress it up like this protein cookie cheat meal, I would’ve been in cookie heaven.

There’s a reason why Lenny & Larry’s Protein Cookies are taking over the fit-food market. They didn’t send me any samples or pay me for this review. I was honestly so impressed that I wanted to give my two-cents for anyone looking for a high protein baked good. I’m not alone either. Word of mouth reviews, posts, and tweets are contributing to huge success of Lenny & Larry’s and by spreading the word hopefully we can see more companies create products like this (and for Lenny & Larry’s to expand their product line).
