Lisa, the Health Nut

I'm lisa and I loooove healthy food!  The lifestyle I chose to live is eating only natural or organic food products, minimally processed whenever possible.  What I can't stand is that people may  automatically assume all "health food" that I eat isn't flavorful or tasty.  THIS IS NOT TRUE!  Why would I eat stuff that doesn't taste good?  So my mission is to spread the word that "healthy" does not mean "tasteless".  Healthy food can be just as yummy as the not-so healthy types!   I'll let you know what foods are good, and which ones aren't so good. :)

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 :P

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.
