Lenny & Larry’s Peanut Butter Complete Cookie

A cookie… with 15 grams of protein, all natural, and peanut butter flavored?

I like the sound of that…

Lenny & Larry’s makes The Complete Cookie, which comes in a few flavors, including the Peanut Butter flavor I was sent for free to try for a review. I found out from the website that this cookie is also vegan, and has 5 grams of fiber. The website further stated that “The Complete Cookie is the perfect, healthy snack.” Well, let’s give it a try!

First, I looked at the nutrition. This cookie had 2 servings in it, but it was a rather LARGE cookie. Weighing 4 ounces, this cookie packed 426 calories,14 grams of fat, 620mg of sodium, 60 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams of fiber, 24 grams of sugar, and 15 grams of protein. So, I’d have to disagree a little bit there and say that this is more than a “healthy snack”, and perhaps more of a meal.


The cookie was a pale orange in color, with bits of peanuts scattered throughout. It was soft, but didn’t fall apart, and was actually a little dense and chewy. It had a rather unexpected taste.. kind of like a butter cookie with a peanut butter flavor. it was also kind of salty tasting, and yet at the same time, had a brown sugar aftertaste. In other words, it had a lot going on. I didn’t really love the flavor, but it wasn’t bad. I do wish that there was more of a peanut butter flavor, since, I looooooove me some peanut butter 😛

Overall, I’m giving it 3 stars. It wasn’t the greatest, but it wasn’t too bad either. I just didn’t like that in order to get the 15 grams of protein, there was also 426 calories, and 14 grams of fat! That’s like a meal! But, I could see eating half maybe after a fun kickboxing class or other workout for some post-activity fuel 🙂

2 oz. (half a cookie) is 213 calories, 7 grams of fat, 30 grams of carbs, 2.5 grams of fiber, 12 grams of sugar, and 7.5 grams of protein.

Lenny & Larry’s Cookies & Cream Muscle Brownie

So, alongside the DELICIOUS Peanut Butter Muscle Brownie I was sent from  Lenny & Larry’s, they also gave me the Cookies & Cream Muscle Brownie.

Same awesomeness in my opinion, with it’s all natural ingredients, and 20 grams of protein for an 80 gram brownie. Protein + brownies= YES! : )

WHAT am I waiting for? Let’s give this a try NOW!!

I opened up the package, and saw a dark brown colored brownie, with almost a white icing on top. It was kind of small, but thick and dense. It smelled very sweet, and had a vanilla aroma as well.

So, how did it taste? I only have one word to describe it.


As in, HOW is there protein in this deliciousness!?!? The brownie itself was soft and chewy, very slightly gritty, fudgy and sweet. The icing on top really wasn’t as sweet as I thought it would be, but was pretty good. There were also little bits in the cookie, which I thought were walnuts, but they were actually soft and sweet. So, I’m assuming they are not walnuts. I believe they were either “cookie bits” or “marshmallow flavored pieces” according to the ingredients.

Overall, Cookies & Cream Muscle Brownies ROCK! As if I needed another excuse to eat a brownie, this one has lots of filling protein, and great flavor, as well as natural ingredients. One thing I didn’t really like was the fact that it was a bit high in sugar (11 grams for half an 80 gram brownie), and there was corn syrup listed in the ingredients (s0mething I try to stay away from). Also, there were TWO servings in the 80 gram brownie, which it took almost all of my willpower to only eat half at a time (it’s so good!).  Although, now that I think about it, a good-sized dessert brownie can be around 300 calories, give or take, with most of the calories I’m assuming coming from fat or sugar/carbohydrates. At least if someone I eat the whole brownie, it’s 340 calories, and 20 grams of PROTEIN!! : )

So… 4 1/2 stars : )

1.41 Oz (40 grams)  is 170 calories, 5 grams of fat, 20 grams of carbohydrates, 11 grams of sugar, 1 gram of fiber and 10 grams of protein.

*** I also did a guest post on Yum Yucky. You can see it HERE! 🙂 ****

Oh yea. Peanut. Butter. Muscle. Brownie.

The generous folks over at Lenny & Larry’s sent me one of these treats to try, and of COURSE I was excited. Not only was it  a brownie, it was a peanut butter brownie, AND it has TWENTY GRAMS of protein per 80 gram brownie!!

So, feeling hungry the other day and in the mood for something sweet and savory, I took out this brownie. It was a thick and rich brownie, with a decent layer of a peanut butter drizzle on top. Some actually stuck to my wrapper a little bit, but no worries! I took a bite, and… These are GOOD!

Very sweet, fudgy, dense, and moist. Just delicious! The brownie part was actually a bit too sweet, but still very good. The best part was the peanut butter topping- creamy, sweet and delicious.

This gets 4 stars from me. It was very good, but there are two servings in a 2.82 ounce package, with 170 calories and 6 grams of fat per serving. This brownie is too delicious not to eat the whole thing at once! I also wish that there was more fiber,  and less sugar. There is only 1 gram of fiber, and 12 grams of sugar per serving. On the bright side, I did like how it was filling, and certainly scrumptious. I can see myself using this as an on-the-go snack or mini meal for when I’m hungry but don’t have time to sit down and eat.

1.41 ounces (40 grams) is 170 calories, 6 grams of fat, 19 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, 12 grams of sugar and 10 grams of protein.
