I enjoy a good energy bar as much as the next vegan traveler, but sometimes it’s nice to mix it up and try something new. Enter Lenny & Larry’s Complete Cookies. They’re vegan, contain 15g of protein and 5g of fiber. Not only that, but they’re big, chewy, soft and tasty. I don’t want to try and convince myself, or you, into thinking they’re a super healthy snack. After all, they are cookies. But with so much protein, all natural ingredients, zero preservatives, and a selection of delicious flavors, they’re definitely a smart choice when weighing vegan cookie options.
Lenny & Larry’s Complete Cookies come in six flavors, all of them vegan. The options are chocolate chip, double chocolate, lemon poppy seed, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, and pumpkin. It was pretty exciting to receive a sample pack containing two of each kind. John and I had a big debate about which kind to try first. He wanted peanut butter and I wanted double chocolate. In the end it was lady’s choice, but really there is no bad choice to be made here.
At around 400 calories each, these cookies make for compact and filling travel snacks. Noting the suggested serving size was half a cookie, John and I split the double chocolate cookie and bit into bliss. If you took each cookie out of its package, put all the cookies on a tray, and served them to guests, they’d think you baked them earlier that day. They’d never guess they’re vegan and packed with protein.
Over the course of a few days we’ve managed to try all of the flavors and liked every single one. My favorite is the pumpkin cookie. It’s spiced with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg! John’s faves have been the peanut butter and chocolate chip.
I’m really glad I had a chance to try these cookies, but am a bit crushed to know they’re not available in Canada. You can find them at quite a few retailer in the US, including Whole Foods. You can see the full list of retailers here. Lenny & Larry also make a protein brownie, but they’re not vegan so watch out.
One winner will receive a box of Lenny & Larry’s Complete Cookies (12 in a box). The winner will get to choose the flavor :)
