Do you bake these at home?
This has to be the #1 asked question of all. No, all cookies and products from Stacy’s Cookies are made locally and produced in a health inspected, city approved and licensed commercial kitchen. Every product is assembled, baked, packaged and heat sealed on-site.
Stacy’s Cookies is located at the Core Kitchen Commissary in Langley, BC. All products are now produced there. This is the only commissary kitchen in BC that has been outfitted to comply with Covid-19 regulations from Fraser Health.
Where do the ingredients come from?
Everything is Canadian sourced, purchased locally and always from reputable stores and suppliers such as Save on Foods, Real Canadian Superstore, Costco, Snowcap and GFS.
Do the cookies contain gluten?
Yes, both the Obsession and Supreme cookie varieties contain wheat flour. The Chocachewy Bar and the Seedy Affair have no gluten containing ingredients. The snack cookies all contain gluten from wheat flour.
What are the sources of protein?
The 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. The Seedy Affair doesn’t have any Quattro in it and all of its protein comes from the seeds and oats.
I use the Vanilla Ice Cream and Chocolate Love Quattro in the cookies. Each recipe has a different balance of these to create a unique flavour in each of them. The Chocolate Peanut Butter Obsession cookie also uses BioX Nutri-Nut peanut butter powder. This is a terrific protein product as well, it has a rich, full peanut butter flavor without most of the fat that real peanut butter has.
Are there nuts in the cookies?
There are no nuts in the Supreme and the Seedy Affair, but they are baked in a kitchen where nuts are present and sometimes used. I cannot guarantee that there is no nut exposure for those with extreme allergies. All equipment is cleaned and sanitized frequently in a high temp commercial dishwasher to remove any nut residue throughout the process, but please still use caution if you have a severe allergy.
The peanut butter chocolate Obsession cookie has nuts in it of course and so does the Chocachewy peanut butter protein bar. The Supreme and Seedy Affair have no nuts. All of the snack cookies have no nuts in them, except of course the peanut butter one.
What is Magnum Quattro?
Magnum Quattro is a 4 isolate, time-released, smooth digesting protein. It’s made without lactose and is a combination of 4 high quality isolates and essential fats like flaxseed. Magnum Quattro is a great tasting protein that bakes better and is more consistent than the other protein powders that I’ve tried. It brings an amazing, underlying delicious element to the products.
What’s the best way to store these?
The two protein cookies are best stored in the freezer if you’re not going to eat them right away, this extends their shelf life to 6 months or more. They only take a few minutes to warm up on the counter. Please see the Product Enjoyment Guide for more detailed information on how to get the most out of these products.
The Chocachewy bar is to be stored in the fridge only, not the freezer. They have a shorter shelf life and should be eaten within two weeks after purchase. A Seedy Affair is best kept cool or in the fridge, not frozen and not warm either.
Where did I get the recipes?
These recipes are my own unpublished, proprietary recipes that have been painstakingly developed from scratch over several years and thousands of hours of effort. I guarantee these recipes are not copied from a book or the internet.
The Supreme cookie originated in 2015 from a simple but awesome, hearty oatmeal cookie recipe from at least 15 years before that. I took that recipe baked it, changed it and improved it dozens of times from there. The Obsession cookie was built off of the Supreme recipe. The Chocachewy bar is completely different and was created out of thin air. The Seedy Affair was created as a simple granola bar packed with seeds.
How did I figure out the nutrition numbers?
The nutritional testing for the Supreme, The Obsession and the Chocachewy was performed by SGS Canada Inc. located in Burnaby, BC. The nutritional numbers for A Seedy Affair were calculated mathematically directly from the recipe and online nutrient data.
Do you bake anything else?
Yes, I bake all sorts of cookies (also lemon bars, banana bread, blueberry coffee cake and more). Contact me for custom orders. The homestyle baked goods are great for entertaining, packed lunches, platters and snacking anytime. The snack cookie varieties currently available are: Chocolate Chip, Lemon Clouds, Ginger Bends, Peanut Butter, Cinnamon Coffee and Pumpkin Spice. They’re soft and chewy, freeze well and thaw like they were never frozen. Contact me directly to place an order.
I have 27 years of experience in many areas of food service. My food experience is very diverse to say the least. I’ve done line cooking, cold side, appetizers, food court sandwich shop, small scale catering, large scale catering, banquet serving, airline catering, private in-home catering, large volume bakery production and also worked as a lead morning baker in a busy commuters coffee shop. I’ve also been a server in all different types of restaurants, everything from fine dining to barbeque to casual to beach side seafood. I’m sure there are more that I can’t remember but you get the idea, it feels like I’ve done it all.
The natural evolution of all those years of building food related skills was to create Stacy’s Cookies and develop my own unique baking ideas. Over the last 7 years now I’ve been creating and building a menu of delicious cookies and snacks that I know you’ll love!
