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 and Snowcap.
Do the cookies contain gluten?
Yes, both the Obsession and Supreme cookie varieties contain wheat flour.
The Chocachewy Bar has no ingredients that contain gluten but it’s made in a kitchen that’s not certified gluten free.
The Seedy Affair is gluten free and doesn’t use any ingredients that contain gluten, but they are made in a kitchen that also uses 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.
I use the Vanilla Ice Cream and Chocolate Love Quattro in the cookies. Each recipe has a different combination 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 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 throughout the process. 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 Seedy Affair has no nuts in it at all.
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, it’s a chewy cold cookie treat that can only be understood on a hot July day.
In the winter, microwave it for 15 seconds or so, then it becomes a warm, fresh-out-of-the-oven yummy breakfast cookie. The Obsession is best eaten fully thawed or warmed up (not partly frozen like the Supreme).
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 warm.
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 Obsession cookie was built off of the Supreme recipe, I basically tossed out the seeds and replaced all of them with peanut butter and chocolate, the Obsession was created.
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.
The Seedy Affair is launched now as of March 2021, it’s available at Sandcastle Fitness now and soon will be available for purchase at the other locations as well.
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.
I have 27 years of experience in many areas of food service. My experience is very diverse to say the least, everything 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, café lead 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.
