I have found myself craving, and eating way too many cookies lately. Especially since I discovered that Piece of Cake is withing walking distance of our studio! So, I found some cookie alternatives that will keep me from consuming every no bake cookie in Evansville.

I have tried several different protein cookies, and usually they are dry, and flavorless. But, the Buff Bake Protein Sandwich Cookies looked like they might actually be good, so I tried them. Wow! I actually like these cookies! The peanut butter cup has a nice peanut flavor, and a hint of chocolate. The double chocolate are by far my favorite. Usually, protein cookies are soft-ish, but these have a nice crunch to them. Bonus, they are Gluten Free. One serving is 4 cookies, they are on the small side. Here is a comparison of a "Real" cookie, and the protein cookie:
