When I found this cookie, I almost left it in the store because I’m not too impressed with most cookies and bars because they usually contain whey. I don’t like the taste of whey and it doesn’t set well with me, so I avoid it. This cookie is made with pea protein and I like it.
I love peanut butter and this peanut butter cookie is right down my alley. It is reminiscent of the old fashioned peanut butter cookies with the fork imprint on the top. It contains organic erythritol and a small amount of stevia extract as sweeteners and the erythritol gives it a slightly cool sensation on the tongue. Coconut oil gives it a silky texture that only coconut oil can impart. Since it is made from a grain free flour blend that contains peanut flour and also has peanuts, it has a real peanut butter taste. It crumbles a little so be prepared to catch every delicious crumb.
This cookie has 190 calories, 3 net grams of carbohydrates, 15 grams of fat and 8 grams of protein. I can always afford 190 calories because on David’s Way program, I struggle to eat all of my calories because I don’t eat sugar. The 8 grams of protein is enough to make this a worthwhile treat. Again, I really like the fact that it is made with pea protein and absolutely NO WHEY. There is NO DAIRY whatsoever and NO GLUTEN ingredients if that is of interest to you. They are manufactured in a facility that also processes wheat, so if you are a sensitive celiac, they might not be for you.
Price and Availability
I bought these cookies in a 4-count box for $5.97 at Walmart. You can buy one for $2.29. They are available online, but be careful where you order them. Unscrupulous people have bought a lot of these and they are selling them at ridiculous prices. You can order them from the manufacturer or Walmart at a reasonable price. At lennylarry.com you can order Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter and Coconut in a 12-count box for $21.95. I suggest you purchase a single cookie and give them a try before making a large purchase, but if you want cookies, definitely give them a try!
