Vegan Gluten-Free Shortbread Cookies (1 Bowl)

When we were creating recipes for Girl Scout Cookies (specifically these Tagalongs), we loved the cookie base so much we wanted to turn it into shortbread cookies. Hence, this creation was born.

While these vegan, gluten-free shortbread cookies are healthier than your average shortbread, they don’t lack in crispy texture, butteriness, or sweet flavor. Plus, they’re surprisingly easy to make — just 7 ingredients and 1 bowl required.

Girl Scout cookies have a special place in my heart because I used to be a Girl Scout. Not to brag, but I did win the prize for most cookies sold in my troop one year despite suffering a sprained ankle the week prior. That’s dedication. The cookies I sold the most of (besides Thin Mints)? Tagalongs! If you’ve never had Tagalongs, also known as Peanut Butter Patties, you’re in for a treat!

A crisp, shortbread-style cookie is topped with creamy peanut butter and enveloped in melted chocolate.

The BEST Thin Mints (V/GF)

Anyone else practically live on Girl Scout cookies growing up? In our house, Thin Mints were a favorite, and we always had 1-2 boxes in the freezer for snacking. It doesn’t get much better than a crisp, cold, chocolaty Thin Mint dunked in milk (who’s with me?).

We wanted to bring the nostalgia of Girl Scout cookies into our kitchen and remake this classic cookie, but with a healthier spin. We’re happy to report that our inspired version is not only naturally gluten-free, vegan, and grain-free, but it’s also incredibly quick and easy to make and (no joke) tastes exactly like the real thing!

How to Make Gluten Free Pasta

Making homemade gluten free pasta is surprisingly easy!

It starts with adding the following to a food processor:

  • Almond flour
  • Tapioca starch
  • Sea salt
  • & Eggs (1 whole egg and 4 yolks)

The leftover egg whites can be used to make omelets and frittatas, as a binder for macaroons (similar to using aquafaba), and so much more!
