No Cow Protein Cookies have been discontinued, but they still make No Cow Protein Bars. For other dairy-free protein cookie options, you might like Munk Pack Protein Cookies or Lenny & Larry’s Protein Cookies.
No Cow Protein Cookies contain 12 to 13 grams of protein, 240 to 250 calories, 16 to 17 grams fat, and 6 to 9 grams fiber per generously-sized snack. They have just 1 gram of added sugars and 7 grams of sugar alcohols. Consequently, they aren’t very sweet, but they are filling!
Tasting Notes for No Cow Protein Cookies
Yesterday I shared the news on some big, indulgent vegan cookies. But No Cow Protein Cookies aren’t meant to compete with those indulgences. They’re packed with protein and other functional ingredients for jumbo snacks that have a protein bar meets cookie vibe. If you’re looking for a dessert cookie, then try these. But if you want to enjoy post-workout protein and fiber in a low-sugar cookie format, then I suggest you keep reading.
These have a brownie vibe but without the dessert-like sweetness. I actually really like them for breakfast, because there is just enough sweetness to counteract any cocoa bitterness, but the overall taste is mellow and satiating. I do think the texture is good overall, and doesn’t shout protein powder. But the cookie is a little bit dry. Fortunately, the chocolate chips help to break up the texture.
Ingredients – protein blend (brown rice protein, pea protein), palm oil, almonds, water, glycerine, chocolate chips (cocoa liquor, soluble vegetable fiber (corn)*, cocoa butter, natural flavors), soluble vegetable fiber (corn)*, cocoa (processed with alkali), erythritol, natural flavors, oat flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, salt, stevia extract, monk fruit. Contains almonds. Produced on equipment that also processes soy, peanut, milk, egg and other tree nuts. *non-GMO corn
I like the texture of this flavor. It has just a hint more moisture than the chocolate and is dotted with bits of peanut. The initial taste is smooth and peanut buttery with just a touch of sweetness. In fact, it almost borders on savory at times. My one qualm is the slight yet sharp bitterness that kicks in toward the aftertaste. It might not be noticed by some, but I tend to notice bitterness from alternative sweeteners and protein powders easily.

The scent is a little caramel-y sweet, which strikes me as odd at first. This is the sweetest flavor of the bunch, but it’s still only a touch sweet. And indeed, it doesn’t have that classic snickerdoodle flavor. Instead it has notes of caramel flavor spiked with cinnamon. This variety is a little drier, like the chocolate. It does have that hint of bitterness that kicks in, I believe from the protein powder. But this might not be noticeable if you aren’t sensitive to bitterness.
