Who would have thought cookies and browines could be healthy? Well Larry and Lenny did. Lenny & Larry’s began in 1993. One day while having coffee after a morning workout at Gold’s Gym in Venice, California, two friends had the crazy idea of putting protein in muffins. Combining a fitness background with an interest in nutritional baked goods and promotional fun, former American Gladiator (“CYCLONE”)and good friend, decided to create and market high protein muffins, cookies and other all natural baked goods. After months of planning we came up with some great tasting, healthy products and ‘our guaranteed to make you smile logo.’ Guess What? Everyone loved it and away we went!
After 15 years, they continue to make the best tasting, healthy snacks on the market. They believe the product should taste better than the package it comes in. They were spot on!
I was honored to receive Larry & Lenny’s brownies and cookies to review. This was a huge box of goodies I got. 3 brownies (peanut butter, triple chocolate, and cookies and cream) and 6 complete cookies ( pumpkin, lemon poppyseed, chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, and double chocolate chip). There are so many that were great I will highlight my favorites.
The complete Lemon Poppyseed cookie was by far my favorite of the six. This cookie packs on the lemon flavor for sure. With 15 grams of protein and 5 dietary fiber this cookie will keep you going. Not only is it a healhty snack but vegan friendly with no animal products, no dairy products and no preservatives. I didn’t get a chance to try the chocolate chip or double chocolate chip because my husband snatched them too quickly. Being that they are gone he enjoyed them and he is a picky eater.
Now the Peanut Butter brownie was my favorite of the three. Again, they is no leaving the peanut butter taste to the imagination. Both the cookies and the brownies are very good sized portions. The brownies are so thick you can really only eat just one. Packed with 20 grams of protein these can be used as a meal replacement or a great dessert after a light dinner.
If you are like myself and have never heard of Larry & Lenny then these are a must try. Found at a variety of local stores like Whole Food, Kroger, and Costco but if you live in a small town like myself, these stores may not be available to you. You can order online directly from the Larry & Lenny website. We are getting a whole foods come spring and can’t wait to try their new Caramel Walnut brownie.
Larry & Lenny are giving one lucky reader a variety pack of their cookies and brownies. This is a great gift pack. This giveaway will end 10/16. This is for US residents only. Here is how to enter. Good Luck
