Okay, so I don't do this whole writing a post about something *while* I'm eating it thing very often, but this doesn't happen very often:
What's this? A super-delicious Protein Bakery oatmeal chocolate chip cookie! Which, alongside a tetrapack of chocolate soymilk and some peanut butter is the study snack of the moment.
As in, this very moment.
But seriously - do you see that fluffiness? The chocolate chips are super sweet and chocolatey and melty - not at all stale-tasting, like you sometimes get with packaged cookies. Then again, these are baked in small batches, so maybe that's why they're soft, fluffy, and delicious.
And as to why they're substantial enough that, even though they taste of buttery, sugary goodness, they're perfectly acceptable as a study snack and have something substantial to bite into? That'd be because they're whole grain with 2g of fiber and 4g of protein (oh, yeah!).
Oh, and no terrible sugar crash to come - there are only 3g of sugar per cookie so, even though I'm eating both in the packet (shhhh), that's still only 1.5 teaspoons of sugar - which comes with a total of 8g of protein. That's probably why it's:
And as far as that low sugar stat goes, these aren't little cookies (none of that silly business where companies achieve low sugar stats by making products the size of your pinky nail). And all natural ingredients!
Now that I'm done raving, let's take a second to look at some of the other yummies from Protein Bakery:
I can't wait to try everything else! And I'll definitely have to order some of those Espresso Brownies with Cappuccino Chips that I just saw on the website...
Anyway, it wouldn't be fair to make you guys salivate over all that awesomeness if I weren't going to share.
