Fair warning, this is a shameless promotion. If you’re unfamiliar with Lenny’s & Larry’s Complete Cookie up to this point, consider this your introductory orientation. The Complete Cookie has single-handedly revitalized my relationship with deserts and simultaneously provided an impeccable nutritional uplifter to my diet.
As the legend goes, Lenny’s & Larry’s Complete Cookie was founded by two gym rats, Benny and Barry. As stated on their website, “Benny and Barry got tired of eating the same boring things to get their protein.” After creating a high protein muffin way back in 1993, a whole line of products followed shortly thereafter. Broad distribution expanded to the newly founded Whole Foods Market in 1994 and has spread to most major grocery retailers ever since.
With so much to offer, the Complete Cookie is less about what IS and more about what IS NOT on the ingredient list. No Trans Fat, Non-GMO, Non-Dairy, No High Fructose Corn Syrup, the list goes on. The taste is great, and the nutritional value is greater. Admittedly, traditional baked goods are tasty, but leave you feeling lethargic. This is due in part to limited Fiber and Protein content of sweets. To the contrary, Lenny’s and Larry’s Complete Cookie delivers 16 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber per cookie. As a kicker, these delicious morsels are fortified with iron which can help to curb anemia in the blood.
Most major grocery store chains stock Complete Cookie, including Publix, Whole Foods, Walmart, etc. Costco may be your best bet for savings when purchasing in bulk. In the Greater Atlanta Area, Lenny’s and Larry’s Complete Cookies can be found at RaceTrac convenience stores. Let’s just say that gas stations are not exactly a bastion for healthy foods. Fuel your hunger while you top off the gas tank. Complete Cookie is an excellent grab and go pick-me-up when on the road.
