Mind. Blown 🤯
I’ll admit that the bar is set incredibly low when it comes to protein cookies in the marketplace for being crave worthy.
I won’t name names…. but it rhymes with Benny & Barry’s… is the protein cookie I’m sure everyone had tried which has slightly more protein but almost twice the total calories.
I can’t speak for everyone, but I find them to be not-awful but also not much better than cardboard. The problem is that I tend to binge on regular cookies after I eat a protein cookie because my brain is not satisfied with the cardboard experience and still left wanting.
So my expectations of these protein cookies was really low when I tried them.
The first bite was magical and unexpected…. Soft, buttery and just like grandma’s cookies.
I waited for the texture to turn to a grainy paste or gel up into a lump my mouth which is common to a lot of gluten-free cookies…. But it did not!
From start to finish… I ENJOYED slowly savoring each bite instead of wanting to stuff it in to get it over as quickly as possible and add to my macro tracker.
These made me feel like I was giving myself an indulgent loving gift of self-care without any regrets or post-consumption shame.
The balanced macros kept me on track with my goals for the day and left me physically & emotionally satisfied.
