Lenny & Larry’s Protein Cookies

And last but certainly not least, here we have protein cookies from Lenny & Larry’s! I know, I know, these are cookies and not bars but I do believe they earned a spot on my top 10 list! This variety pack of Lenny & Larry protein cookies features 16 cookies in 8 different, fun flavors! These protein cookies are gigantic and you can actually split them into two servings if you would like. That is what I usually do with these because they are very filling! Each Lenny & Larry’s protein cookie contains 16 grams of protein. Err with caution here if you are watching your sugar! Each serving (1/2 a cookie) has 15 grams of sugar. That’s fine though… just have a Lenny & Larry’s cookie on one of your “cheat days”!

Grab a 12 pack of their best-selling Chocolate Chip Cookie flavor! Or you can go with my personal favorite Birthday Cake!
