Panera Bread’s mint crinkle cookie has 430 calories, but don’t let that deter you. It’s big enough to feed a family of four!
I recently ordered a mint crinkle cookie from the Panera Bread menu for my son and myself. They look just like the chocolate crinkle Christmas cookies we bake only a lot larger in size! Unlike my homemade chocolate crinkle cookies, these cookies included what appeared to be chocolate or mint chocolate chips.
Panera Bread Nutrition
One cookie has 430 calories, 16 grams of fat, 45 mg cholesterol, 280 mg sodium, 4 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein. It also has 35 percent of the recommended iron and 4 percent calcium.
Panera Bread mint crinkle cookie ingredients include egg, soy and wheat so it’s not a gluten free cookie.
One cookie is 91 grams or 3.25 ounces. As a comparison, two little store bought cookies contains 25 grams. I highly advise dividing the cookie into four sections and sharing as a wise portion control measure.
As far as taste, the mint crinkle cookie on the Panera Bread menu has a chocolate minty taste, which I love around the holidays. They shake a generous sprinkling of powdered sugar on top.
Chocolate crinkle cookies for Christmas
Chocolate crinkle cookie recipes usually call for cocoa along with sugar, butter and white flour. When I make my homemade chocolate crinkle cookie recipe I roll up the chocolate dough in powdered sugar and then bake on a greased baking sheet. When they cookies come out, they have a crinkly look on top since the powdered sugar spread in the baking process.
I liked the idea of adding mint flavor to the Panera Bread bakery cookie. Mint crinkle cookies are perfect when you are in the holiday mood and pair well with mint hot chocolate. The Panera mint crinkle cookie was soft and chewy on the outside and had a nice crispiness on the edges. They are rather sweet with 44 grams of sugar in one of the whopping cookies.
Panera Bread Locations, Panera Bread Member Card
Now that Panera has a rewards program, I suggest using your Panera Bread member card at the different Panera bread locations throughout the United States. I frequent the Panera Bread locations in Florida, but I’ve also been to Panera Bread locations in North Carolina and other states.
For taste, I give the Panera Bread mint crinkle cookie 4.7 out of 5 stars.
