This marks the last flavor in the Muscle Brownie line for me to try. In all honesty, I’m not too bummed about that. Overall they’ve been a pretty big letdown from Lenny & Larry’s in comparison to their FAR more delicious (and popular) Complete Cookies. The Cookies & Cream Muscle Brownie sounded like the most intriguing out of all the flavors, so I purposely saved this one for last with the hopes that I would end things on a good note.
Cookies & Cream Muscle Brownie Review
My strategy actually worked. While I’m still probably not going to ever come back to these brownies over their cookies, at least my last impression of them isn’t all negative. I did think the Cookies & Cream Muscle Brownie was indeed the best flavor out of all their brownies, easily. The cream drizzled on top was the best tasting component out of all their flavors so far, and really did a lot to mask the slightly ‘off’ chocolatey taste of the brownie itself. The cream drizzle was sweet, and definitely gave off that classic cookies and cream vibe.
The Cookies & Cream Muscle Brownie totals out to 340 calories consisting of the macros 20p/40c/10f in addition 2g fiber. While this has the same overall calories as the other two flavors, the fat content is a tad lower in result of the carbs being higher. That’s more than okay with me, as I’m usually watching my fat more than my carbs anyway. The fact that the best tasting flavor also has the best macros gives little reason for me to re-visit their other flavors if I ever decided to come back to a Muscle Brownie one day.
This was the best flavor in the Muscle Brownie line, but in all honesty that’s really not saying too much. They’re still pretty average products all around and are inferior in basically every way to Lenny & Larry’s more popular Complete Cookies. If you’re going for a Muscle Brownie, I would recommend this flavor. However if you’re going for a protein snack, I would either go for a much more macro friendly protein bar in the first place, or if you’re going for something with similar macros I would just opt for a Complete Cookie itself.
+20g protein per brownie
