Healthy Gluten-Free Thin Mint Cookies (Girl Scout Copy Cat)

Everyone loves Girl Scout Cookies. They are hard to find and in high demand ๐Ÿ˜‰ They are also expensive, and not super good for you. But the flavor and taste are to die for. That’s why everyone loves them! Well here is a Paleo approved version of the classic Thin Mint Cookies. Let me tell, they taste extremely similar to the originals, but they are cheaper, healthier, and you can have them whenever you want! The recipe also a good amount so you can take half and put them in the freezer for later! Sounds like a good deal right?

I just wanted to take a second and thank all of you readers who take the time to look at my blog and my photos and support my passion ๐Ÿ˜‰ It means a lot to me. Hope you enjoy trying out my recipes! Have a wonderful week!
