Product Review: A Special Kind of Grass-Fed Whey Protein Cookies From Naked Nutrition

Like many health nuts, I first became interested in health through the world of traditional fitness, weight lifting, and traditional supplements, especially of the protein-packed variety.

Eventually, my interest led me to the Arnold Classic Fitness Expo in Columbus, Ohio, where I gorged myself on free protein powder samples and even discovered natural remedies and supplements for the first time ever, thanks to a small booth offering chia seed and green juice samples.

One of the first things I began to notice at this Halloween-style fitness expo slash party was that most of the protein powders I sampled were packed full of ingredients I didn’t want going into my body: artificial sweeteners like aspartame, Splenda and acesulfame potassium, artificial colors linked to hyperactivity and other health problems, and other problematic ingredients.

Since then, I began going down a more natural path of healthy living, which eschewed ingredients like those above but leans heavily on organic whole foods including fruits, vegetables, fats and pasture-raised meats, as well as a targeted array of detox and body building supplements like healthy protein powders.

Grass-fed whey is one of my favorite protein supplements to use before and after difficult workouts, which is just part of the reason why I am a fan of Naked Nutrition’s line of products.

Naked Nutrition utilizes whey from grass-fed California cows that are allowed to graze on open pastures for much longer than cows from Wisconsin and other cold climate states; just one of the benefits of their protein supplements that is worth writing home about.

Recently, I had the chance to try their new protein cookies packed with grass-fed whey.



Here is what stood out to me:

1. Grass-fed whey- As mentioned above, the grass fed whey utilized by this company is of high quality for multiple reasons. These cookies include a combination of this whey and defatted almond powder as the first two ingredients.

2. High quality ingredients- These cookies include organic vegetable glycerin, grass-fed whey, monk fruit juice, baking soda, and other high quality ingredients, which you can read about on the company’s website here.

Overall I am a fan of the ingredients in these cookies, although I wish they had more organic ingredients. They are non-GMO, however, and the cookies contain only one gram of sugar from the monk fruit making them a solid choice for low-sugar diets.

3. The price- At 17.99 for 9 cookies, these aren’t a bad deal at all. They are great to grab on the way to a morning or late afternoon workout, satisfying and delicious.

They also include almond butter, soluble non-GMO corn fiber and maltodextrin (excellent for post-workout muscle repairing fuel), which make for a well-rounded snack for any serious weight lifter or athlete.

4. The flavors- I tried the chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies, and they tasted as close to “regular” cookies as I have ever tried in a “healthy cookie.”

The company also recently came out with sugar cookies as well that look quite delicious.

Naked Nutrition Protein Cookies: The Final Verdict

As if the case with most Naked Nutrition products I have tried, these are both delicious and nutritious, and the grass fed whey is the star of the show in this case.

I really like the Naked Nutrition line of products, and these are among the tastiest and most convenient items I have tried from them.

Overall, I would recommend these cookies if you’re looking for something to fuel your daily workouts and a change of pace from traditional protein powder, although, again, I wish they they used more organic ingredients in this case (some of their other products like the organic rice protein and grass fed chocolate whey use a higher percentage of organic ingredients).
