Gluten-Free Girl Scout Knockoff Cookies and Treats from Your Favorite Bloggers
It’s that time of year when they’re everywhere. Girl scouts. Super cute Girl Scouts wearing big smiles and selling Girl Scout cookies. Gluten-full Girl Scout cookies. As you probably know, ready-made gluten-free Girl Scout cookies don’t exist. But no worries, if you lament your gluten-free status each year this time simply because of said gluten-full Girl Scout cookies, don’t dismay, there are really some terrific gluten-free Girl Scout Cookie recipes that will allow you to make your own. If you make your own, you might not end up scarfing down a box of cookies at a time. Oh, wait, that wasn’t you, that was me! (With a fair amount of help from Mr. GFE, of course.) It’s a well-known fact that Girl Scout cookies tend to evaporate any way, right? Perhaps it’s those addictive and questionable ingredients they contain.But today I’m sharing the Top 10 “Best” Gluten-Free Girl Scout Cookie recipes from some of my very talented blogger friends, plus a little bonus at the end for recipes (and non-recipes) that just might be better than Girl Scout cookies!
Here’s the listing starting with my two favorites, Samoas and Thin Mints, which I’m pretty sure are the most popular Girl Scout Cookies.
Thin Mints by Tia at Glugle Gluten Free (for this gluten-free, dairy-free recipe, you shape the dough into a roll, freeze it, and then “slice and bake,” before cooling and dipping into minty chocolate.)
And sometimes you’re thinking of Girl Scout Cookies when you create something similar, but quite different. Check out the following recipes for treats that are decidedly not gluten-free re-creations of Girl Scout cookie favorite, but I think you will be very surprised … you truly might like these creations even better!
