Round Em Up! Gluten Free Girl Scout Cookie Recipes

It’s that time of year again: Girl Scout Cookie season! But what if you’re wanting/needing a gluten free Girl Scout Cookie?

Some folks see all this cookie commotion as a sad time of year for those of us eating gluten free, as The Girl Scouts of the USA haven’t historically produced any gluten-free varieties. After a successful test of a gluten free chocolate chip shortbread cookie, they have experimented with a few different flavors. This year they are offering two flavors of gluten-free Girl Scout Cookies: “Toffee-tastic” and Caramel Chocolate Chip cookies. Toffee-tastic cookies contain milk and soy; Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies contain milk, eggs and oats. Each is made by a separate contracted manufacturer in different facilities.

These cookies still may not suit your dietary restrictions, and may not be the flavors you’re craving. So whether you choose to order these cookies and try them for yourself or not, we gluten-free’ers can still save all kinds of guilt bucks and make many of the non-gluten free cookie flavors at home, but make them safely gluten free.
