Copycat girl scout cookies but healthier! This vegan samoas recipe has a grain-free shortbread, caramel coconut layer, and dark chocolate drizzle!




  • 1 cup (110g) almond flour
  • 1/3 cup (40g) coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup (80g) maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 cup (50g) coconut oil (or coconut butter)
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Caramel Coconut Layer

1/2 cup (90g) dark chocolate chips, melted


  1. Whisk together flours and salt.
  2. Add maple syrup and coconut oil, mix to form a sticky dough.
  3. Roll out between two sheets of wax paper. Freeze flat for 30 mins (makes cutting/transferring easier).
  4. Cut into ring shaped cookies, and bake 8-10 mins at 350ºF. Cool completely.
  5. Spread the coconut on a baking sheet and toast for 10 mins at 350ºF, stirring halfway through.
  6. Add sweetened condensed coconut milk to a small saucepan. Simmer on medium low heat, stirring frequently until browned (about 10 minutes). Stir in salt and vanilla, then remove from heat.
  7. Pour over the toasted coconut and mix.
  8. Plop a dollop on top of each cookie, then press/shape into a ring.
  9. Freeze cookies for 2 hours.
  10. Dip the bottoms in melted dark chocolate, then drizzle the tops. Chill until chocolate is set.
  11. Eat! Keep leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container.
