The One True Protein Cookie
The search for the best protein cookie on the market is on. Just when you thought the variety among bodybuilding supplements doesn’t get any more diverse, manufacturers come up with ideas that blow you away.
Nowadays, a protein supplement between meals is just one option – you can also chow on a trail mix, protein bar, or protein cookie to keep you satiated. The options are endless.
One protein cookie we have sized up is Quest Protein Cookie, which has a solid 15 grams of protein and 10 grams of dietary fiber per serving. Without a doubt, these are its strong suits.
Unfortunately, one cookie yields 25 percent of the daily value for fats and 50 percent of the daily value for saturated fats (a minimum daily value of 15 percent is high). Obviously, the manufacturer should have toned it down a bit in these two areas.
A similar product is MuscleProtein Cookie, which has an impressive 18 grams of protein and eight grams of dietary fiber per serving. Too bad it’s high in fats (14 percent of the daily value), saturated fats (25 percent of the daily value), and sugar (14 grams per cookie).
The takeaway: it’s hard to find a protein cookie which meets the needs of finicky bodybuilding enthusiasts. Granted, this product category is relatively new. The search for a top-notch protein cookie shouldn’t be too daunting – at least we hope not.
On that note, we’re crossing our fingers ProSupps MyCookie exceeds our wildest expectations. “PROSUPPS has formulated MYCOOKIE to stand alone as the one true protein cookie. MYCOOKIE has been created with not only the fitness enthusiast in mind, but also the average Joe (or Jane) who simply needs to add some protein to their diet,” per the manufacturer’s official website.
Our first impression: this protein cookie has the potential to become the go-to protein source of fitness-oriented individuals with sweet cravings. There’s nothing better than a timeless delicacy which meets the needs of bodybuilding fans everywhere. Let’s hope PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE blows the competition out of the water.
Formulation, 80 grams
PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE has an impressive 18 grams of protein per serving (80 grams). That’s fantastic, to say the least. Granted, it’s not as much as MyProtein Protein Cookie (which has a whopping 38 grams of protein per serving), but it matches the protein content of MuscleTech Protein Cookie and and outdoes QUEST Protein Cookie (15 grams of protein per serving).
Say, you consume two PROSUPPS MYCOOKIEs in a day (one mid-morning and another one mid-afternoon), that adds up to a total of 36 grams of protein. We’re confident that much will help you meet your daily protein requirements.
PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE Protein Blend’s components are whey protein concentrate (WPC) and whey protein isolate (WPI). The former is typically 70 to 85 percent protein and has a higher fat, lactose, and carb content than WPI.
Moreover, WPC has a higher immunoglobulin content than its WPI counterpart. It’s also cheaper and tastes better. It doesn’t stop there: Canadian researchers concluded WPC is a promising source of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant. Long story short, if you want to keep free radicals at bay, try supplementing with WPC (and whey protein) in general.
On the other hand, WPI (which is 90 to 95 percent protein) is the choice of bodybuilding enthusiasts who want to muscle up and lean out because of its lower fat and carb content. Individuals who are lactose intolerant also resort to WPI.
Plus, whey protein isolate help keep total cholesterol and bad cholesterol (LDL) levels in check, per the British Journal of Nutrition (via EASAcademy.org). Ergo, whey protein isolate supplementation is also good for cardiovascular system function.
The downside: WPI tends to have a bitter taste and is more expensive than WPC because of the microfiltration process it undergoes. Nonetheless, WPI will still give you great results. Top-notch WPI supplements such as EFX Sports Training Ground Isolate and AllMax IsoFlex made our grade. Their quality speaks for itself.
In a nutshell, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s eighteen grams of WPC and WPI per serving should exceed your expectations. If you can’t decide between the two types of protein, getting the best of both should do the trick.
Another plus of PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE is its solid dietary fiber content (four grams per serving, which is equal to 16 percent of the daily value). Check out the benefits of a high-fiber nutrition plan:
- Better digestive function
- Improved bowel movement
- Increased insulin sensitivity
- Improved blood sugar and cholesterol levels
- Better immune system function
This protein cookie should help you reap these impressive benefits. Unfortunately, its dietary fiber content doesn’t measure up to the aforementioned QUEST Protein Cookie (10 grams per serving) and MuscleTech Protein Cookie (eight grams per serving). If you want a protein cookie fix which has impressive dietary fiber content, QUEST Protein Cookie is the smartest choice.
If you’re on a low-carb nutrition plan, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s 36 grams of carbs per serving (equal to 12 percent of the daily value) should complement it. However, the better choice is still QUEST Protein Cookie, which has only 20 grams of carbs per serving.
At this point, it’s clear PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s main strength is its protein content. The fat (12 percent of the daily value) content is neither high nor low. Let’s look at the bright side: it’s not as high as QUEST Protein Cookie’s (16 grams per serving) and MuscleTech Protein Cookie’s (nine grams per serving).
On the other hand, the saturated fat (15 percent of the daily value) and sodium content (17 percent of the daily value) are both high (a minimum daily value of 15 percent is high). Let’s see how PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s nutritional profile stacks up against the competition:
|PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE||QUEST Protein Cookie||MuscleTech Protein Cookie|
|Protein||18 grams||15 grams||18 grams|
|Sugar||seven grams||Less than one gram||14 grams|
|Net Carbs||36 grams||20 grams||49 grams|
|Dietary Fiber||four grams||10 grams||Eight grams|
|Calories||290 calories||240 calories||350 calories|
|Fats||eight grams||16 grams||Nine grams|
If you’re on the lookout for a protein cookie with high protein and low fat content, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE is a logical choice. If you’re more particular about your sugar, carb, and dietary fiber intake, QUEST Protein Cookie wins out.
When you take a look at the supplement facts, you can see for yourself PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE has a ton of ingredients – it gives customers the impression there may be fillers lurking somewhere.
Just about the only component which raised our eyebrows is sucralose, an artificial sweetener with links to obesity. Furthermore, the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health (via NCBI.NLM.NIH.gov) considers sucralose a synthetic ingredient. That’s not good at all.
All in all, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE is still a respectable choice if you want to get your protein cookie fix. Nonetheless, it’s clear this product has several glaring loopholes. We’re hoping the manufacturer addresses them sooner than later so customers can enjoy a better protein cookie experience.
Let’s check out the formula ingredients:
- Calories, 290: PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s 290 calories per serving is high. However, it’s not as as high as some of the leading protein cookies on the market. In fact, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE has one of the lowest calorie contents in this product category.
- Saturated fat, 3 g: This product’s three grams of saturated fat represents 15 percent of the daily value, which his high. The American Heart Association’s official website recommends the public to monitor its saturated fat intake for better long-term cardiovascular function. If you’re particular about your saturated fat intake, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE is not for you.
- Monounsaturated fat, 3 g: On the flip side, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE has three grams of monounsaturated fats per serving. This kind of fat can benefit long-term heart health. We’re glad this product has ample amounts.
- Polyunsaturated fat, 2 g: Just like monounsaturated fat, polyunsaturated fat “may help improve your blood cholesterol,” per the American Heart Association’s official website. Having both in a protein cookie such as PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE is a refreshing sight.
- Trans fat, 0 g: You never want to see any trans fat content in any supplement or whole-food product because it may result in cardiovascular issues. We’re glad PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE has no trans fats at all.
- Cholesterol, 30 mg: This protein cookie’s cholesterol content represents 10 percent of the daily value, which is neither low nor high. Just the same, if you’re monitoring your cholesterol intake, steer clear of PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE.
- Sodium, 400 mg: PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s 17 percent of the daily value for sodium represents a high amount. If you’re particular about your salt intake, skip this protein cookie.
- Total carbohydrates, 36 g: Twelve percent of the daily value for carbs is neither low nor high. If you want to muscle up and lean out, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE isn’t your best bet – QUEST Protein Cookie and MyProtein Protein Cookie should fit the bill.
- Dietary fiber, 4 g: PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s 16 percent of the daily value for dietary fiber is high, so it should help improve gut function, regulate cholesterol levels, and promote regular bowel movement. Unfortunately, this product lags behind competitors such as QUEST Protein Cookie (10 grams per serving) in this department.
- Sugars, 7 g: This product’s seven grams of sugar per serving isn’t high, by any means. If you’re monitoring your sugar intake, it’s a safe bet. However, QUEST Protein Cookie is the better choice (less than one gram of sugar per serving).
- Protein, 18 g: PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s 18 grams of protein per serving is one of the highest among protein cookies (although nowhere near MyProtein Protein Cookie’s insane 38 grams of protein per serving). This much should help you put on serious muscle mass, repair muscle tissue, shorten recovery time, and meet your daily protein requirement.
- Vitamin A, 180 IU: PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE isn’t a significant source of vitamin A at just four percent of the daily value.
- Vitamin C, 1 mg: PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE isn’t a significant source of vitamin C at just two percent of the daily value.
- Calcium, 80 mg: This protein cookie is just a so-so source of calcium at eight percent of the daily value.
- Iron, 1.1 mg: This protein cookie is just a so-so source of iron at six percent of the daily value.
The manufacturer hailed PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE as “The One True Protein Cookie.” Well, if protein is the sole basis for its value, then, yes, that claim is legit. However, when you take other factors into consideration, this product lags behind the competition.
First off, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s 18 grams of protein per serving is right up there with the likes of MuscleTech Protein Cookie. It even does QUEST Protein Cookie (15 grams of protein per serving) one better. However, there’s no way it can topple MyProtein Protein Cookie, which has an insane 38 grams of protein per serving.
Nevertheless, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s protein content (which features whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate) should help build muscle mass, shorten recovery time, and meet one’s daily protein requirements, like we said.
We also thought the inclusion of monounsatured and polyunsaturated fats, which are good for the heart, is a great bonus. Many baked goods (including protein cookies) go overboard in terms of fat and saturated fat content. Consuming good fats as part of a well-rounded diet bodes well for long-term health. We’re glad they’re in PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE.
The fat and carb content are neither low nor high (12 percent of the daily value). The good news: PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s fat content isn’t as high as the competition’s (for comparison’s sake, QUEST Protein Cookie has 16 grams of fats per cookie).
As for the carb content, it’s not the lowest in this product category (Quest Protein Cookie owns that distinction at just 20 grams per serving). If you’re on a low-carb nutrition plan, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE isn’t your best bet.
Nonetheless, we like its high dietary fiber content (16 percent of the daily value). That much will help regulate cholestero levels, improve heart health, and promote regular bowel movement. Unfortunately, QUEST Protein Cookie’s (40 percent of the daily value) and MuscleTech Protein Cookie’s (32 percent of the daily value) dietary fiber content make PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s minuscule in comparison.
In terms of sugar content, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s isn’t high, by any stretch (seven grams per cookie). However, QUEST Protein Cookie’s less than one gram of sugar per serving wins by a mile.
On the other hand, we thought the 15 percent of the daily value for saturated fats was a little off-putting. If you want a healthier heart, try to monitor your consumption of these. Granted, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s saturated fat content isn’t nowhere near QUEST Protein Cookie’s (an outrageous 50 percent of the daily value). Just the same, the manufacturer could’ve toned it down a bit more.
Speaking of off-putting, PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s taste isn’t exactly the best. In fact, that’s the customers’ main gripe about this product. Well, we agree. You’re better off trying MuscleTech Protein Cookie, which is far better. QUEST Protein Cookie isn’t bad, but it has a bit of an aftertaste.
PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE is also high in sodium at 17 percent of the daily value. If you’re monitoring your salt intake, this product isn’t for you.
The manufacturer could also have done away with PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s sucralose content, a synthetic sweetener which has ties to obesity. Stevia, a natural alternative which helps regulate blood sugar and blood pressure levels, would have been the better option.
To sum things up, take PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE’s battle cry (“The One True Protein Cookie”) for what it means: its protein content is just about the only worthy highlight. Its intangibles didn’t blow us away. When the manufacturer improves its taste and lowers its saturated fat and salt content, we’ll probably recommend it. For now, pass up on this one.

Final Word on PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE
We had high expectations for PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE. We were hoping it would give the likes of QUEST Protein Cookie and MuscleTech Protein Cookie a run for their money.
Unfortunately, it didn’t: it fared even worse. Look no further than its taste as the main reason. When you’re in the mood for a protein cookie, there’s no way you can reap its benefits if it makes you gag.
It bears repeating: PROSUPPS MYCOOKIE may be “The One True Protein Cookie,” but it does little in terms of the intangibles (except for the healthy fat and dietary fiber content). Pass up on this one. You’re better off baking your own protein cookie.
