All right, all you low-carbers/keto followers. Quest now has cookies. There are some other protein cookies on the market, but they aren't very low carb or low sugar. Quest has chocolate chip, double chocolate, peanut butter and oatmeal raisin. I have tried all of them, but I prefer the good old chocolate chip. The peanut butter cookie isn't very peanut butter-y and the oatmeal raisin just has a strange aftertaste.
250 calories, 10grams of saturated fat (which seems high to me) and a crapload of sodium at 220mg. 4grams of net carbs and 15grams of protein are very good for low carb diets if you follow the standard method of subtracting the sugar alcohols and fiber from the total carbs to get the net carbs. I know most low carbers/keto followers don't really count fat grams, but 10mg of saturated fat is high.
Butter, palm oil and cocoa butter - that's why the saturated fat is so high. The other ingredients seem ok. Xanthan gum is a binder and is especially important when you're baking with ingredients other than wheat flour. I use it to help bind low carb treats that I make with almond flour. If you do a google search, you'll find all kinds of articles meant to scare you away from it. In the scheme of food additives, it really isn't hazardous or unhealthy and there is such a tiny amount in a product like this that unless you know you are sensitive to it, it probably shouldn't cause any problems.
Here is the cookie on a standard dinner napkin. It's about 3-4" around. For 250 calories, I might prefer something a little more substantial. It's not very filling, but it would make a pretty decent snack. It tastes very good, salty and sweet and chewy with lots of chocolate chips. It has a very satisfying texture.
I got a box of 4 for $7.99 at Target, so about $2.00 per cookie. I recommend these if you can limit yourself or if you are on a low-carb or keto diet and want a treat that won't drive your daily carb numbers over the limit.
