Frequently Asked Questions
Where do the ingredients come from?
Everything is Canadian sourced, purchased locally when possible and always from reputable stores and suppliers such as Save on Foods, Costco, GFS and Snowcap.
Do the cookies contain gluten?
Yes, both of the current cookie varieties contain gluten.
Creating a gluten friendly cookie is in the works and hopefully will be launched later next year. The commercial kitchen I use is not a certified gluten free kitchen, so for people with extreme allergies to gluten the cookie variety that I’ll create would end up being “gluten-friendly” not “gluten-free”.
What are the sources of protein?
The amount of protein in the cookies comes from the natural food ingredients which include oats, eggs, cottage cheese, pepitas, sunflower seeds, hemp seed as well as a significant amount of the delicious Magnum Quattro protein powder.
I use the Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Love and Chocolate Peanut Butter Addiction flavours in the cookies, each recipe has a different combination of these products to create a unique flavour in each cookie.
The Chocolate peanut butter cookie also uses BioX Nutri-Nut powdered peanut butter. This is a terrific product as well. It has a rich, full peanut butter flavor without most of the fat that natural peanut butter has. It’s great in protein shakes as well!
Are there nuts in the cookies?
There are no nuts in the Supreme recipe, but they are baked in a kitchen where nuts are present and sometimes used. I cannot guarantee that there is no nut exposure for extreme allergies, but I do ensure that all equipment and surfaces are cleaned and sanitized before the recipes are made.
The chocolate peanut butter cookie has nuts, of course. I make the peanut butter cookies after the nut free recipes are made. The equipment goes through a high temp commercial dishwasher and sanitizer to ensure any nut residue is removed.
What is Magnum Quattro?
It’s a fantastic, high quality, pharmaceutical grade, fast and slow digesting protein powder that bakes more consistently and tastes better than any of the other protein powders I’ve tried. It brings a significant added bit of deliciousness to the cookie.
Where did I get the recipe?
These recipes are my own proprietary recipes that have been painstakingly developed from scratch over several years and thousands of hours of effort.
I can tell you however, that the cookies originated from a simple but awesome, hearty oatmeal cookie recipe. I took it, baked it, changed it and improved it hundreds of times from there. The first cookie to emerge was the Supreme and it’s been a popular seller consistently since 2015.
Where are these cookies baked?
All cookies and products from Stacy’s Cookies are produced in a health inspected and city approved commercial kitchen. Each delicious cookie is baked, packaged and heat sealed on-site.
I have 25 years of experience in several different areas of food service, everything from catering and serving and large scale baking and production. Stacy’s Cookies was founded in 2015. I carry a current Food Safe certificate and all necessary business licencing.
