quest bar cookies

In case you’ve never tried baking your Quest bar into cookies, I thought I’d make a quick post on my new favorite thing, Quest Bar Cookies!


When I first started protein baking and becoming part of the online fitness community, I kept hearing about Quest bars. Everyone seems to rave about how great they taste, and about their great macros. Quest bars are high in protein, and are made with isomalto-oligosaccharides, a prebiotic fiber, which gives them the pliable consistency of a Power Bar but with only a few grams of non-fiber carbs. (A note about the macros: I think Quest does some fancy math to reduce the calories because of the high fiber content. I calculated the calories here without any fancy math.)

Anyway, the Quest bars are great! I quickly became a fan. My favorite flavors are Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Double Chocolate Chunk, Chocolate Brownie, and Cookies & Cream. (Anyone sensing a theme, here?)

So when the folks at Quest Nutrition contacted me about sending over some bars for me to bake with, I was thrilled! And so curious about how they bake up!


I tried my first batch of Quest Bar Cookies by cutting up a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Quest bar into 8 pieces, and baking them. As I mentioned in my Facebook post, I was fascinated at the change in texture and so impressed!


I’m embarrassed to say that there was a time while I was in grad school that I would eat a bunch of cookies for dinner (because I didn’t care enough about myself to make a proper meal). Now, it is quite a treat to be able to feel good about having 8 cookies as a quick meal or snack!

So here you have the simple instructions for my new favorite thing, Quest Bar Cookies!


And a video, too!

The macros here are for a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Quest bar (my favorite!), and I calculated calories without any high-fiber fancy math.

**I later realized that some Quest bars are sweetened with sucralose, an artificial sweetener. While I will continue to enjoy these cookies in moderation, it is my goal here on the blog to bring you all-natural recipes. I will continue to work with the naturally sweetened Quest bars, and I hope Quest will consider switching to natural sweeteners for all of their bars!
