Girl Scouts Gone Vegan: Samoas

Whether you know them as Samoas or Caramel deLites, these once-a-year treats are off limits if you’re following a vegan diet. The original recipe also contains hydrogenated oil, which isn’t something anyone really wants in a cookie. If you can’t shake the desire for these chewy, coconut-y gems, here’s an egg- and dairy-free alternative that’s also trans fat free.

The serving size is one cookie for this recipe, which is comparable in weight to the two-cookie serving of the real Girl Scout version. You end up saving 36 calories, one gram of fat, 5.5 carbs, and 2.5 grams of sugar. They taste amazingly like the actual Samoas but are thicker and chewier, and I actually prefer these over the boxed originals.
