FlapJacked Protein Cookie Mix also differentiates from packaged, ready-to-eat protein cookies by giving consumers the ability to portion-control and customize recipes based on their individual diets and snacking preferences. One bag of FlapJacked cookie mix makes 12 satiating cookies for active families, athletes and weight-conscious consumers to enjoy over the course of a week.
