Evidence-Based Health Review
High protein cookies have fast become one of my favorite go to treats and healthy snacks in recent years.
I was shopping in Home Bargains here in the United Kingdom recently and noticed they had a great range of USN Select supplements and protein cookies/bars instock.
I find the protein cookies to be some of the best priced high protein snacks on the market and you can often find them for around 99 pence which is a fair bit cheaper than most protein bars by comparison.
The consistency of the high protein cookies is probably the highlight of the snack. The cookie has a very soft gooey consistency, is a decent generous size and keeps you coming back for more.
Taste & Flavour:
The taste of the Salted Caramel High Protein Cookies is delicious and makes for a very indulgent guilt free treat.
I have tried many different flavours of protein cookies now over the years from double chocolate chip to white chocolate and the salted caramel is definitely one of my favorite I have reviewed so far.
I am a huge fan of salted caramel flavour treats, so I was very interested to see how the salted caramel high protein cookie would stand up to the test.
USN Select have got just the right amount of Salted Caramel flavour right with this one, plus with the addition of the chocolate chips, its a really indulgent protein rich treat as said.
One of the main factors for purchasing the high protein cookie as you can guess from the name is for the generous boost of protein it provides at around 15 grams per cookie.
For around £1 a cookie you won’t find many other cheat foods that provide such a good nutritional return, great taste and in a cookie format.
What more is to like?
The high protein cookies are reduced sugar, but do still provide a small amount at 12 grams per cookie so I do consider them to be a cheat treat.
24 grams of net carbohydrates overall and a small amount of dietary fiber at 2.1 grams.
Overall I am a big fan of USN Select High Protein Cookie range and they remain one of my favorite go to guilt free cheats.
Great taste, they provide a decent nutritional return with 15 grams of protein and the price at £1.00 is some of the most competitive in the healthy snack and sports nutrition/protein bar market.
Highly recommended for the salted caramel lovers out there.
