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.
The new Chocachewy Bar is gluten friendly. It has no gluten containing ingredients but it’s made in a kitchen that’s not gluten free.
What are the sources of protein?
The amount of protein in the cookies comes from the natural food ingredients which include, but aren’t limited to: oats, eggs, cottage cheese, pepitas, sunflower seeds and hemp seed as well as a good amount of the delicious Magnum Quattro protein powder.
I use the Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Love and Chocolate Peanut Butter Addiction Quattro in the cookies, each one has a different combination of these products to create a unique flavour in each of them.
The Chocolate Peanut Butter Obsession cookie also uses chocolate flavoured 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 can’t guarantee that there is no nut exposure for those with extreme allergies. All equipment is cleaned and sanitized in a high temp commercial dishwasher to remove any nut residue before the nut free recipes are made.
The Peanut Butter Chocolate Obsession cookie has nuts in it of course, so does the Chocachewy peanut butter protein bar.
What is Magnum Quattro?
It’s a 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 protein and deliciousness to the products.
Where did I get the recipe?
These recipes are my own unpublished, proprietary recipes that have been painstakingly developed from scratch over several years, thousands of hours of effort and definitely thousands of pounds of ingredients sacrificed for the cause. It was all worth it to now have a product line that is so well liked by so many people.
The Supreme cookie originated from a simple but awesome, hearty oatmeal cookie recipe. I took that, baked it, changed it and improved it hundreds of times from there. The Peanut Butter Chocolate Obsession cookie was built off of the Supreme recipe. The Supreme has been a consistently popular seller since 2015.
The Chocachewy bar is completely different and is kind of like a combination between a chocolate chewy bar and an Eatmore chocolate bar (sort of), except that it also has yummy pepitas, sunflower seeds and coconut in it.
The Chocachewy Bar and the Peanut Butter Chocolate Obsession cookie were launched in Feb/March 2020.
Do you bake these at home?
No, all cookies and products from Stacy’s Cookies are made locally and produced in a health inspected and city approved commercial kitchen. Every product is baked, packaged and heat sealed on-site.
Side Note: The nutritional testing on all three products was performed by SGS Canada in Burnaby, BC.
I have 27 years of experience in many different areas of food service. I’ve done everything from line cooking to large scale catering and banquet serving. I’ve also done airline catering and private in-home catering featuring one-bite finger foods to serving in all different types of restaurants from fine dining to casual to beach side. I’ve worked large volume bakery production and also been the lead baker in a busy morning cafe. I’ve been making gourmet platters of all sorts for years, everything from fruit and veggies to meat and cheese to dessert platters and more.
The natural evolution of all those years of building food skills was to create Stacy’s Cookies and develop my own unique baking ideas.
