MyProtein cookie is a soft-baked cookie packed with 37g protein and 315 calories.
If protein bars and shakes aren’t your cup of tea, then these cookies offer a viable alternative. There are four flavors:
- CHOCOLATE ORANGE – Surprisingly good combination of chocolate and orange.
- CHOCOLATE MINT – Although chocolate mint, mint is the predominant flavour here.
- DOUBLE CHOCOLATE – For serious chocolate lovers. Slight bitter aftertaste.
- WHITE CHOCOLATE ALMOND – This one tastes a lot like battenburg cake.
My Protein’s protein cookies are soft and packed with 37g protein out of 75g of product. This is 50% of protein content, quite mind-blowing. It has a very good overall ratio of protein, carbs and fats for most gym go-getters.
Main protein source is Milk protein. Some of the protein is derived from gelatin and soy. It accounts only for a small amount of total protein though. Gelatin is what helps give the cookies their soft texture.
When you analyse the nutritional breakdown, they’re better and more cost-effective than most other protein snacks, including even the wildest of high protein bars. This is a 37g protein cookie. How many bars can claim this high of a protein content?
Chocolate Mint Flavour (example): Milk Protein, Hydrolysed Gelatine, Glycerine, Palm Oil, White Chocolate Chips (9%) (Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Whole Milk Powder, Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin)), Sugar, Reduced Fat Cocoa Powder, Oatflour (Gluten), Gum Acacia, Raising Agent (Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar), Flavouring, Salt, Sweetener (Sucralose).
Chocolate is a present theme in all of the flavors, which can be good if you’re a chocolate lover, ‘meh’ if you’re not into it, or disastrous if you’re allergic or you hate chocolate.

Due to its soft texture, the cookies are pretty chewy, so you’ll probably just get in some mouthfuls at a time. Don’t rush into eating these, as the cookies can be deceivingly sandy. Drink liquids with it and you’ll be fine.
If you’re used to eating cookies, you may expect a crunchy outside and a crumbly inside, but that’s not the case with MP’s Protein Cookie. It looks like a cookie, but doesn’t behave or taste like a cookie. It’s more like a (very) high tasty protein bar in the shape of a cookie. They’re dense and quite chewy.
They may not be like your grandma’s cookies but they are sweet enough that it’s easy to binge eat them as they may grow on you. Your head says no, but your hands are already stuffing half of the cookie down your throat.
They are very sweet, a bit too sweet for my taste though, although I am used to dark chocolate at +85%. Heat them in the microwave in standard settings for 10-20 seconds. This will enchance their baked flavour, melts the chocolate chips in the cookie and reduces any after taste of the protein.
Overall rating: 7/10
Good size and good nutritional balance, these protein cookies offer a convenient way of adding more protein to your diet.

The cookies are edible, pack a lot of protein, are flexible to be had as a snack or meal and don’t need lots of liquid to wash them down. You could have one of these with a glass of milk, cup of tea, take them before bed, munch them down while on your car or if you’re going for a ride.
