Cookies & Blondies for Halloween

We've revealed products from The Protein Bakery before here on The Chocolate Cult.  They had a new fall flavor in two forms that they believe could be great Halloween treats so we will reveal their new cookies and blondies to you as part of our annual challenge.  These treats come in individual plastic wrapped treats that each contain one serving so no false sense of taking care of your health by munching on a package only to discover it is actually more than a single serving.  That annoys your Chocolate Priestess when companies do that.

The Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies are two to a serving.  This obviously has tree nuts but also soy and dairy products if you have those common allergies.  It does not have wheat however though it has cinnamon and eggs.  These two cookies are 120 calories, 4.5g saturated fat, 25mg cholesterol, 80mg sodium, 1g fiber, 10g sugars, 4g protein, with some calcium, iron and vitamin A.  These have a very strong pumpkin scent to them and the cookie looks nice and soft.  The cookie is indeed soft when I take a bite but the large pieces of walnut are crunchy.  The pumpkin is really the dominant flavor with the chocolate chips a distant after thought.

The Pumpkin Walnut Blondies do not have any chocolate of any type in them so I can't honestly review them here for The Chocolate Cult.  They are large however and have all the same allergens as the cookies.  I think they really needed some chocolate chips or maybe white chocolate chips like the cookies instead of the cappuccino chips listed on the ingredients.

The Protein Bakery has a range of cookies, blondies and brownies that are a bit healthier than most of the cookies you can buy out there. Many of these do have chocolate of various types so they are worth you checking out.  We've reviewed some of their flavors before so do a search for them under "Saturday Sacraments" or "Special Sacramental Reviews".

Here there is Halloween, but not too strong like in your Country so the foodie-products related are scarce.

Those cookies with a strong pumpkin scent and the correspondent chocolate chips more walnuts I'm totally sure that they should be a winner not only in my house, in the entire neighborhood!

Cheers,

Gera

Thanks for reading and commenting, Gera. The good thing about undecorated cookies is that they can be used year around.
