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.
What are the sources of protein?
The amount of protein in these cookies comes from natural ingredients (including oats, eggs, cottage cheese, pepitas and sunflower seeds) as well as the Magnum Quattro protein powder.
Are there nuts in them?
There are no nuts in the recipe, but they are baked in a kitchen where nuts are present and sometimes used. I cannot guarantee there is no nut exposure for extreme allergies, but I do ensure that all equipment and surfaces are cleaned and sanitized before this recipe is made.
As far as the flavour goes, it’s the addition of ground flax seed, pepitas and sunflower seed that create the nutty flavour without actually adding nuts to the recipe.
What is Magnum Quattro?
It’s a high quality, pharmaceutical grade, fast 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 delicious to the cookies.
Where did I get the recipe?
This recipe is my own proprietary recipe that has been painstakingly developed from scratch over several years and thousands of hours of effort.
I can tell you however, that they originated from a simple but awesome, hearty oatmeal cookie recipe. I took it and baked it, changed it and improved it hundreds of times from there.
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.
