Paleo Peanut Butter Patties: Tagalongs

These Girl Scout cookies are called Peanut Butter Patties or Tagalongs, and guess what? I’ve made them gluten-free and Paleo. Now you can enjoy more gluten-free, Paleo Girl Scout Cookies. No need to give in to cravings for the regular (sugar-filled, gluten-filled) Girl Scout Cookies which are everywhere this time of year.

When I was a girl I was in a troupe called the Blue Birds. It was very similar to the Girl Scouts, except we sold Blue Bird candy instead of Girl Scout cookies. I had great fun going door-to-door selling candy to our neighbors. This was good preparation for the canvassing I later did for NYPIRG after I graduated from Columbia.

These peanut-free, dairy-free, vegetarian Tagalong cookies are best stored in the refrigerator or freezer –your choice will depend on the level of crunch that you like in your cookie.

My previous two Girl Scout Cookie recipes are based on recipes from Tammy Credicott‘s book Paleo Indulgences, however, these Tagalongs are my own version of the regular Tagalong Girl Scout Cookie –they’re a simple gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free almond flour cookie with some sunflower seed butter and dark chocolate. Thanks, though, do go to Tammy for getting me on a Girl Scout cookie roll!

  1. My daughter, coincidentally, talked about her love for Tagalongs today when she stopped in for lunch. She has a birthday in less than 3 weeks and I plan on surprising her with this timely recipe.

    Really enjoy your new “Remodeled Pantry. It is very intuitive, well laid out and FUN! Thank you!

  2. Does anyone have the nutrition on these? I searched CalorieKing, but only found the Girl Scout version. I’m going to try these this weekend! Thank You,
