So I did it. I finally tried the Lenny & Larry’s Complete Cookie. I have been day dreaming about these cookies for months now, from seeing them in GNC or Vitamin Shoppe, to seeing them being shared on blogs and Instagram accounts. I bought the cookie with my own money and this is not sponsored at all.
- 54 grams of carbs
- 12 grams of fat
- 16 grams of protein
There are two servings in one cookie, but the macros above are for the entire cookie. There is no way someone could only eat half. If you have that kind of willpower, please teach me your ways.
I kept wanting to buy one and kept holding off. Well, last weekend I finally had enough carbs on a regular day (not high carb day) to have the cookie. I purchased the Chocolate Chip Complete Cookie because chocolate chip cookies are my absolute favorite, along with sugar cookies.
The cookie is a really good size… note the comparison of it in my palm. I heard people say it was huge and I was honestly hoping that once I took it out of the package it would triple in size like those sponge animals that become ginormous once put in water haha. So the fact that it didn’t immediately enlarge like magic was my first disappointment.
I really liked the texture of it. It wasn’t hard like cardboard and didn’t taste like it was a “protein cookie.” Not enough chocolate chips though, and for the ones that were in it, they all seemed to be clumped together, so I got about 3 chips in one bite, and none in a handful of other bites. Disappointment #2.
My honest opinion. Not worth the hype. Not at all. I probably will not buy this flavor again, but I’m intrigued by the other ones. Not super intrigued where I need to try them now. Maybe months from now I’ll pick up a different one, but truthfully, I can think of so many better ways to enjoy 54 grams of carbs, 12 grams of fat and 16 grams of protein. LIKE A BOWL OF FROYO <3 Or, how about real cookies from a bakery.
No joke, I ate a bag of mini Chips Ahoy cookies right after this because I was let down, and those Chips Ahoy cookies were worth the carbs and blowing through my macros for that day.
And there you have it. For those that loved this cookie, I am jealous of you guys, but also, maybe I’m not because I have one less food that I’m addicted to? Ha!
What are your thoughts on the Lenny & Larry’s Complete Cookie?

Again, this post is not sponsored, and Lenny & Larry’s is probably happy that they didn’t send me this cookie for a review!
