Until last week, that is. If you remember, I said it was my birthday. I turned 36. My lovely daughter bought me one of these for my birthday – how cute 🙂 lol. So here’s my review…
Lenny & Larry’s Complete Cookie Review
Anyway. On the cover it stated 16g protein. For a cookie of this size, 16g is pretty weak. But that’s not the worst part…
The quality of the protein is crap – as far as us iron heads are concerned.
In fact, this product could be more rightly called ‘Lenny & Larry’s Crap Cookie‘.
The 2 protein sources are:
- Pea Protein
- Brown Rice Protein
These plant proteins are inferior as they have lower bio-availability scores – the score that refers to the amount of protein that your body can actually use.
- Pea Protein Bioavailability score – 65
- Brown Rice Protein Bioavailability score – 74-83
Basically you’ll be lucky if your body can use 10g protein from one of these cookies.
Any protein snack like a bar or cookie should always be predominantly made from whey, egg, and/or milk protein. Always check those ingredients, guys!
Here’s the bioavailability scores for the best proteins:
- Whey Protein Blends – 100-159
- Whole Egg – 100
- Cow’s Milk – 91
- Egg White – 88
Lastly, they don’t even taste very good. One other thing, if you are thinking of those new Mars or Snickers protein bars, they’re crap too lol. See my review on those here.
Or do as I do and opt to make your own instead of buying store bought bars and cookies.
These new Buff Bars and Buff Cookies are from my newly revised and updated Buff Baking 2 Anabolic Cookbook.
Only 3 ingredients, cheap, really easy to make, and the protein is all whey – the highest quality protein on the planet.
Or the last option…just eat food. And get the majority of your protein from animal sources – since the completeness and bio-availability is vastly superior to plant sources.
Hope that helps you make better choices.
