Review: Quest Protein Cookies (Peanut Butter, Double Chocolate Chip)
Jan. 23, 2020Leave a comment
I was craving cookies. 😂 Well, I wanted to at least have some cookies that are on the healthier side than actually eat a cookie filled with lots of sugar. Here I have Quest Protein Cookies in Peanut Butter and Double Chocolate Chip. I’ve never had these before. Here’s my review on them after getting to try them out! Let’s start off with the Peanut Butter flavor!
Quest Protein Cookie Peanut Butter:
- 220 calories per cookie
- 15 grams of protein
- 4 g of saturated fat
- 15 mg cholesterol
- 220 mg sodium
- 22 g of carbohydrates (12 g dietary fiber, 1 g sugar/0 g added sugars, 5 g erythritol)
Review on Peanut Butter:
I like the peanut butter flavor of this cookie. It does make me feel like I’m eating a real treat when I take a bite of it. But, there is a weird aftertaste to it that I didn’t enjoy. It’s still tolerable though due to the peanut butter flavor that overpowers it. So far, this is the only quest ‘protein product’ that I’m OK with. Would I buy it again? Maybe. Maybe not. I would have to think about it. It’s not too bad, to be honest.
Quest Protein Cookie Double Chocolate Chip:
- 240 calories per cookie
- 15 grams of protein
- 9 g of saturated fat
- 30 mg cholesterol
- 190 mg sodium
- 20 g of carbohydrates (10 g dietary fiber, <1 g sugar/0 g added sugars, 5 g erythritol)
Review on Double Chocolate Chip:
I thought I would like this flavor a lot more compared to the Peanut Butter, but I didn’t. The chocolate chips were good. I liked that part of the cookie. I just didn’t enjoy the taste of the cookie overall. It’s taking me a while to finish these cookies. I will though, lol. And they too had a weird aftertaste to them. The double chocolate chip flavor couldn’t cover up the odd aftertaste. Yuck. I wouldn’t purchase the Double Chocolate Chip flavor again. I’ll pass. I have an obsession with chocolate too, so this was a total bummer. 🙁
That’s my take on Quest Protein Cookies. Were they the best? No, not really. I still prefer vegan protein cookies. 🙂
OK to the Peanut Butter. NO to the Double Chocolate Chip. By the way, these cookies are really good at keeping me full. They’re pretty satisfying.

Do I use Protein Supplements?

I talked about supplements yesterday. What about protein supplements? Am I taking protein supplements???
I have two tubs of protein powder sitting around. The thing is, I haven’t touched them since. I try to. I don’t know. I prefer to eat actual food over taking protein supplements. I do like protein snacks, such as cookies and especially bars. Those fit in my meal plans quite nicely. But, protein powders are last on my list. I used to love them, by the way. 😋 Even though I haven’t been using protein powders for months. I’m very happy that none of my protein powders have expired yet. 👍
As you can see from the photo, I have Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder (Vanilla) and Orgain Organic Protein Powder (Creamy Chocolate Fudge). With Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder, the reason why I haven’t been using it is because it tastes quite awful. It just doesn’t taste good to me at all. It doesn’t matter what I put in my protein shake. I don’t like the taste of it. What I like about it is the amino acid profile. On the other hand, Orgain isn’t too bad, which I’m leaning towards to using more often.
I’m trying to get back in shape again, so I think it’s about time to utilize these protein powders. I’m not lacking protein or anything like that as a vegetarian. I get enough protein in a day. But, protein does seem to keep me fuller much longer throughout the day. I have these protein powders. Why not use them instead of wasting them??!! So let’s begin this transformation! Wish me luck! 😊
