Finaflex Protein Pie Review: Feels more like delicious homemade baking
Finaflex’s Oatmeal Protein Pie is one of the most unique protein snacks we’ve seen in quite some time, especially in the US. It is a traditional oatmeal cream pie-like product packing a good amount of protein. Compared to a typical protein bar however, it is not as lean in the area of carbohydrates and calories.
The full nutrition profile on Finaflex’s Oatmeal Protein Pie consists of 14g of protein, 37g of carbohydrates, 8g of sugar, 15g of fat, and 310 calories. Like a traditional Oatmeal Protein Pie, the product features two oatmeal-based cookies sandwiched together with a protein-enriched cream filling jammed in between.
The cookies in the Oatmeal Protein Pie are like typical, doughy protein cookies, although they’re a lot thinner, so they don’t make your mouth work as hard. The two cookies you get in each pie also have oats scattered throughout, which makes them a little more brittle, and really helps break up the consistency.
Just like the texture of the cookies, the cream filling in between them is not too bad either. It is as soft and creamy as it looks, and makes the whole experience a lot smoother. When you bite into the Oatmeal Protein Pie, it is the cookies that your teeth sink into first, then as you chew the cream mixes in and gives it an overall fluffier texture.
While the consistency of the Finaflex Oatmeal Protein Pie is on point, it does also have a good amount of flavor, all of which comes in that cream filling. As well as softening up the product, the soft and smooth middle layer packs a reasonably strong cinnamon taste. It doesn’t quite hit you right away, but as you chew and swallow, the flavor becomes more noticeable.
Coming into our review of the Finaflex Oatmeal Protein Pie, we didn’t quite know what to expect, although we knew it would be something different. The product is indeed quite different, bringing together various flavors and features we’ve never had the pleasure of enjoying in the one high protein snack.
While Finaflex’s Oatmeal Protein Pie is unlike anything we’ve had before, it does not disappoint. It’s tasty, something you can easily enjoy, and best of all, it doesn’t quite feel like a protein snack. The brand does a great job at bringing together tastes and textures that make it more reminiscent of homemade baking.
