ProSupps MyCookie Takes on the Protein Cookie Throne

ProSupps MyCookie

ProSupps, creators of the best tasting protein bar on the market in MyBar, have entered the land of the protein cookie with MyCookie.

Who doesn’t love a delicious protein bar? We’ve experienced our fair share of tasty (and not so tasty) bars over the years, but in an era of “the next best thing”, the humble protein bar has become a little too commonplace, and supplement companies have begun to develop protein cookies.

No other brand has led the charge in high protein cookies, than Lenny & Larry’s, but as we saw with the one-time king of protein bars (Quest Nutrition), the fall from grace can happen exceedingly fast – especially when you’re sued for non-compliance in your labels.

In a market now opened up due to skepticism in Lenny & Larry’s, ProSupps, creator of the most delicious tasting protein bar on the market, MyBar, has thrown down the gauntlet and challenged for protein cookie supremacy with the release of MyCookie.

MyCookie Ingredients

If you’re familiar with ProSupps MyBar, you know those weren’t the “cleanest” protein snack by protein bar standards, but they certainly are the the best tasting products on the market. And many of us simply don’t care, so long as there’s enough protein inside!

The same holds true for MyCookie. The taste is next level, but the ingredients list is exhaustive.

The good news is that MyCookie contains no gluten, hydrogenated oils, or trans fats – so while not “clean”, it at least isn’t “deadly” either.

  • Protein Blend

    ProSupps MyCookie Ingredients

    MyCookie isn’t short on ingredients by any stretch of the imagination, but the flavor is totally worth it.

    The majority of MyCookie’s protein is derived from its Protein Blend, consisting of Whey Protein Concentrate and Whey Protein Isolate. However, there is some Soy Protein Isolate also.

    We don’t know how much soy is in here but it comes directly after the whey blend in the ingredients list, so we’re unconcerned and those of you weary of soy shouldn’t care too much either. While we’re not huge fans of soy when it’s a primary ingredient, the small amount that’s inside MyCookie probably isn’t enough to get too frazzled over.

  • Sweeteners

    Good news friends, there is NO IMO (Isomalto-oligosaccharide, a.k.a. Vita-Fiber) in MyCookie. Just like with MyBar, ProSupps decided to take a different route.

    The sweeteners and binding agent used in the cookies are the sugar alcohol Maltitol along with real sugar, and the artificial sweetener sucralose.

    Some of you reading this may be sensitive to sugar alcohols when consumed in high amounts, which leads to bloating, cramping and excessive gas, among others.[1,2] If you’re particularly sensitive to maltitol specifically, it may be best to limit your MyCookie intake to one per day.

    ProSupps MyCookie Workout

    MyCookie has a 2:1 carb to protein ratio making it an excellent post workout snack

    As we mentioned up top, MyCookie isn’t low on the number of ingredients. In fact, the ingredients list rivals that of the common Oreo cookie in the overall number of ingredients. The difference is that these are packed with protein.

    If you are particularly concerned with the other non-protein ingredients in MyCookie, here they are in all their glory:

    Brown Rice Flour, White Chocolate Wafers (Sugar, Whey Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate, Vegetable Oils [Palm, Palm Kernel], , Soy Lecithin, Vanilla, Sucralose), Vegetable Glycerin,, Margarine (Palm Oil, Water, Soybean Oil, Whey, Mono and Diglycerides, Soy Lecithin, Natural Butter Flavor, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin A Palmitate), Chicory Root Fiber, Cocoa (processed with alkali), Sugar, Water, Palm Oil, Red Color (Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Glycerin, FD&C Red 40, Red 3, Yellow 5, , Modified Food Starch, Sodium Benzoate, Carrageenan Gum, Xanthan Gum, and Citric Acid), Baking Soda, Natural Flavor, Salt, Potassium Sorbate, Almond, Peanut.

    Now, we should state none of these are “bad” ingredients, but the trend in the industry has been to minimize the number of ingredients and stick to the more natural ones, with less fillers and colorings.

    MyCookie does one up the Lenny & Larry cookies by using brown rice flour instead of plain white flour, which does increase the fiber count and makes MyCookie gluten-free, if that appeals to you. Brown rice also has a lower glycemic index / glycemic load, so this won’t spike your blood sugar as much (Lenny & Larry’s reportedly spike blood sugar a LOT more than expected….)

On Developing MyCookie

“ProSupps has formulated MyCookie to stand alone as the one true ‘protein cookie.’  MyCookie has been created with not only the fitness enthusiast in mind, but also the average Joe (or Jane) who simply needs to add some protein to their diet.  MyCookie is much more than just a thinly disguised baked good with a sub-par protein source thrown in: we’ve used only high-quality ingredients – including a true 18g of premium protein, a primary carbohydrate source of brown rice and minimal sugar. We’ve also excluded the things you could do without – including wheat protein, excess sugars and trans fats. MyCookie will not only change the way you think of baked protein cookies, but it will set the bar for what you expect out of your on-the-go nutrition. And did we mention each flavor is more delicious than the last?”

MyCookie Macros

With all of those additives, flavoring agents, fillers, and even artificial colors (really?!), this thing couldn’t possibly be high in protein, could it? In fact, each protein cookie packs a robust 18g of protein, but the carb content is on the high side:

  • Calories: 290
  • Protein: 18g
  • Carbs: 36g (4g fiber, 7g sugar)
  • Fats: 8g (3g saturated)

Flavors Available

ProSupps MyCookie Personality

Who knew you preferred type of cookie determined your personality?!

Now, the part you’ve all been waiting for — what flavors are available for MyCookie. Good news! There’s six different flavors to suit just about any cookie craving you could have. The list of flavors currently available includes:

  • Chocolate Chip
  • Iced Lemon Pound Cake
  • Peanut Butter
  • Red Velvet Cake
  • Snickerdoodle
  • White Chip Chocolate

Takeaway

It was only a matter of time before another company challenged the downtrodden Lenny & Larry’s for protein cookie supremacy, and we’re glad ProSupps has entered the fray. MyBar was that good, so this should be too. They own the market as the best-tasting bar on the market, the question is, how many other supplement companies will enter the ring and come out with a protein cookie of their own?
