Love + Chew Protein Cookie Features Renewal Mill's Upcycled Oat Milk Flour

Specialty Food Association

Plant-based cookie brand Love + Chew, recently revealed a protein cookie product made in partnership with Renewal Mill, an upcycled food company. The treat is made with Renewal Mill’s upcycled oat milk flour.

The new “Peanut Butter Chip” Protein Cookie contains 10 grams of fiber and 10 grams of vegan protein per cookie and is also made with peanut butter, chickpea flour, and almond flour, in addition to Renewal Mill’s flour.

This is the first flavor in the “The Protein Cookie” line to be released, according to Love + Chew founder Lauren Chew. The cookie is marketed to women, which Chew notes is atypical for a protein-packed cookie product.

Renewal Mill’s Upcycled Oat Milk Flour, which launched earlier this summer, is made from harvesting pulp leftover after making oat milk. The resulting product has over 31 grams of vegan, gluten-free flour per half-cup serving.

"We decided to incorporate Renewal Mill’s upcycled ingredient into our newest line because food waste is one of the largest drivers of climate change. The result is a tasty, high protein cookie where you don't have to compromise," said Chew in a statement.

Caroline Cotto, co-founder of Renewal Mill, added, “We love partnering with women-owned, Bay Area brands who are inspired to take their sustainability commitments to the next level. Partnering with Lauren was a no-brainer.”

Love + Chew is the latest brand to use Renewal Mill’s Upcycled Certified ingredients, joining the ranks of Pulp Pantry, Square Baby, and Tia Lupita.
