Do you bake these at home?
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 baked, packaged and heat sealed on-site.
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, GFS and Snowcap.
Do the cookies contain gluten?
Yes, both of the current cookie varieties contain gluten.
The Chocachewy Bar is gluten friendly, meaning that it has no gluten containing ingredients but it’s made in a kitchen that’s not certified gluten free. If you’re just looking to cut down on gluten, then this product is great for you but please use caution if you have an extreme allergy to gluten.
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.
I use the Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Love and Chocolate Peanut Butter Addiction Quattro in the cookies. Each recipe has a different combination of these products to create a unique flavour in each of them.
The Chocolate Peanut Butter Obsession cookie also uses dry powdered peanut butter from BioX. 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 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 those with extreme allergies. All equipment is cleaned and sanitized frequently in a high temp commercial dishwasher to remove any nut residue before the nut free recipes are made. 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.
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 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.
Several of my customers prefer to eat the Supreme in a cold or frozen state, this is especially good on a hot summer day. In the winter, microwave it for 20 seconds or so, then it becomes a warm, fresh-out-of-the-oven tasting yummy breakfast cookie. The Obsession is best eaten fully thawed or warmed up (not partly frozen).
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.
Where did I get the recipes?
These recipes are my own unpublished, proprietary recipes that have been painstakingly developed from scratch over several years, thousands of hours of effort and at least a few thousand 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 in 2015 from a simple but awesome, hearty oatmeal cookie recipe. I took that, baked it, changed it and improved it dozens of times from there. The Peanut Butter Chocolate Obsession cookie was built off of the Supreme recipe.
The Chocachewy bar is completely different and was created out of thin air. The only reason it exists is because I needed to come up with a use for a big box of mini peanut butter chips that I thought were going to be large size chips from the supplier, the Chocachewy was born.
The Chocachewy Bar and the Peanut Butter Chocolate Obsession cookie were launched in Feb/March 2020.
How did I figure out the nutrition numbers?
The nutritional testing on all three products was performed by SGS Canada Inc. located in Burnaby, BC.
I have 27 years of experience in many areas of food service. My experience is very diverse to say the least, from line cooking, food court sandwich shop, small scale catering, large scale catering, banquet serving, airline catering, private in-home catering, large volume bakery production, lead early morning baker and I’m sure there are more that I can’t remember. I’ve been a server in all different types of restaurants as well, everything from fine dining to casual to beach side.
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.
