If you train in the afternoons and need a quick protein hit before your next appointment, then Protein Cookies are just the thing! Satisfying that sweet craving, a protein cookie is a much preferred alternative to a packet of ordinary chocolate biscuits. As a huge cookie and biscuit fan, protein snacks such as these are always high up on my list to sample and purchase otherwise I end up raiding the cupboards after Ju-Jitsu training and eating the sugary alternatives that I know I shouldn’t over-indulge in.
In this review, I’ll be taking a look at such a protein snack, the Myprotein Protein Cookie in Rocky Road flavour.
Myprotein Protein Cookie
The brown Rocky Road chocolate Myprotein cookie measures 3.75 inches in diameter and is fairly thicker than your average cookie.
Taking the cookie out of its wrapper, you can really smell the chocolate scent. It looks absolutely delicious with light pink pieces scattered throughout the cookie.
Biting into the Myprotein Rocky Road Protein Cookie, I was quite surprised by the taste. Despite its appearance, it doesn’t taste that chocolatey. The texture of the cookie is thick and chewy, almost spongy even, so quickly scoffing the entire lot is not an option. Instead you’ll have to eat it patiently 🙂
Whilst the chocolate taste is quite subtle, there’s a fruity twist which is rather evident whilst consuming the cookie. The cookie is quite moist but the chewy texture gives it a filling feeling.

The Myprotein Rocky Road Protein Cookie is a healthier, filling way to get your protein fix after training or during the day as a sweet treat but it doesn’t quite hit the spot when you require a chocolate fix. I would have liked the chocolate taste to be stronger like a real cookie however it’s fruity, chewy texture is quite pleasant and would definitely satiate that hunger pang between meals.
Individually foil wrapped, they’re also ideal to throw into the gym bag to consume on the way home from training to fill a gap and get that high protein fix in the 30 minutes after training to help grow and repair your tired muscles.
