BLUF: Not bad, but I don’t think it’s going to satisfy any cookie cravings.
The Quest protein cookie isn’t going to win any baking awards. It smells like whey and cardboard straight out of the package. While it is indeed soft and chewy, it is also rather crumbly and not very flavorful. It is better than most protein cookies, with a smooth almost buttery flavor, but it is also full of fat. With 15 grams of protein per cookie, it also has 17 grams of fat and 19 carbs. That’s not a great balance.
Sure, you could eat this in a pinch and be just fine, but there are certainly better options. If you are craving a cookie, you should probably just go out and get a really good quality cookie from a local bakery. If you don’t keep cookies in your house you won’t have to worry about eating the whole box when a major craving rears its ugly head. Plus, a fresh cookie from a bakery is going to be way better.
