This review is a continuation of my tasting of the protein bars I reviewed in the variety pack by Mauer Sports Nutrition. The protein bars I have tried from Mauer so far have been definite winners, both in taste and nutrition. I reviewed the White Chocolate Strawberry, and the Dark Chocolate Coconut Crunch, as well as others, and I enjoyed them all. This post will be a review of the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bar by Mauer.
This is a classic protein bar flavor. The ingredients in the Mauer protein bars have been nutritious, mostly organic, and very tasty. Let’s check out the ingredients in the Cookie Dough bar.
List Of Ingredients
Organic Prebiotic Fiber, Protein Blend (Milk Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Isolate, Organic Pea Protein), Organic Cashew Butter, Organic Honey, Organic Chocolate Chips, Organic Chocolate Liquor, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Cocoa Butter), Organic Palm Oil, Organic Flavor, Organic Cocoa Powder, Sea Salt, and Organic Stevia.
The ingredients in this particular protein bar is a bit different from the other bars by Mauer that I have tried so far. This bar has organic prebiotic fiber and organic palm oil, which were not in the other Mauer protein bars.
The other bars had organic orange flavor and organic lycii berry extract, that is not in the chocolate chip cookie dough bar. This bar has more organic ingredients by percentage from the others Iv’e tried as well. In short, this is a very nutritious, clean protein bar.

My Honest Review
This bar is not as thick as the others by Mauer Iv’e tried. After opening the wrapper I notice only a very slight chocolate aroma, very mild. It does not appear dry, and it reminds me of the old Power Bars.
The texture and consistency are moist and smooth, and it has very little crunch, except for the chocolate chips. The bar is chewy, very much like nugat. It is not layered, it is solid through. I taste a bit of protein flavor, not much. It really eats like a Power Bar from back in the day.
The bar is not overly sweet, and is very satisfying. I love the fact that it is almost completely organic, and the flavor is very good. I thoroughly enjoyed this protein bar. There is little to no aftertaste. The calorie count is not very high, and there is a good amount of fiber which I stated before.
This would make a perfect bar for snacking to get extra protein in my diet, and I would eat one of these bars before or after a workout to help build muscle. I would’nt’t say this is a meal replacement.
I would definitely purchase this flavor in the future, and I would recommend this bar and the others that I have tried from Mauer. This bar tastes good and is nutritious, and has that classic cookie dough flavor, what more could you ask for? Give it a try.
