These copycat Tagalongs cookies are low carb and gluten free. They’re a lot easier than you might think. Buttery, crumbly shortbread is covered with salty peanut butter, and then the whole thing is swathed in dark chocolate. Totally addictive!
For this recipe you will need: almond flour, butter, erythritol or other sugar free sweetener, white stevia powder, vanilla, butternut flavoring, peanut butter, coconut oil, heavy cream, cocoa, silpat sheet, baking sheet

We do not buy boxes of Girl Scout cookies here at my house. We don’t buy boxes of them because we literally buy them by the case. Sometimes two cases.
I swear those girls get dollar signs in their eyes when they see us coming. It is not unusual for us to buy a couple of cases of Thin Mints and a mixed case of Tagalongs and Samoas. Maybe two. My husband swears that those Girl Scouts look innocent enough but the little bullies violently force him to buy them when he is just minding his own business. With each box being just two servings because of the evaporation factor you can see why we need so many.
You do know about the evaporation factor, right?
When you open one of the sleeves of cookies they immediately begin to evaporate so you might just eat one or two but the whole sleeve will be empty in a matter of minutes. It makes you look bad when someone comes in and you are sitting there with an empty container of cookies… even though you didn’t eat but two.
I know you know what I am talking about.
Well, I know the Thin Mints are the cookie of choice for many people and I like them a lot but for me it’s the Tagalongs all the way. I like the texture changes between the crumbly cookie, the silky peanut butter layer, and the rich chocolate. What I don’t like is the carbs.
Ew. Ew. Ew.
I have made copycat Tagalongs that are low-carb, gluten free, and really do have the flavor and texture of the originals. The chocolate is a bit more intense and darker here but that’s OK – we’re all grown-ups here, right?
The copycat tagalongs are amazing. I promise you, totally amazing. Buttery cookie, silky peanut butter, rich chocolate — and the only things missing are the carbs. The shortbread is an adaption of the shortbread cookie on Low Carb Diet. I like to keep these in the freezer, ready for when I have one of those “OMG I need chocolate and I need it now!!” moments. I’m not the only one that has those, right?
