Girl Scout Cookies—while delicious and supportive of a good cause—are not the healthiest. They're also impossible to eat in moderation. That's a dangerous combo for us, so this year, we're avoiding it altogether by digging into these nine healthier versions of Samoas, Thin Mints, and Tagalongs instead. From pops to peanut butter shakes to no-fuss fudge, these bites (and sips) will make you think outside the cookie box.
Wake and (don’t) bake with this recipe—mix, microwave, and refrigerate instead. If you swap out the corn syrup for honey or maple syrup, you'll have 12 amazing granola bars to snack on that are healthier than the original cookies.
This vegan dessert proves you don't need milk and butter to make a delicious sweet treat. What these cookies lack in butter and dairy, they make up for in serious flavor (and health benefits). Plus, they're no-bake—which means you can eat them that much sooner.
