Girl Scout Cookie season may be over, but low carb tagalongs are always in order. Crisp grain-free cookies topped with creamy peanut butter and dipped in chocolate.
It’s okay, they’re gone! You can come out now. You are free to move about and engage in life again, no more need to avert your eyes or lay low and hide away at home. Girl Scout cookie season has passed and I trust that the vast majority of you managed to escape relatively unscathed. Let’s take a head count, shall we? How many of you were totally derailed from you healthy low carb diet by those cute-but-evil little girls selling their sugary wares? Okay, so we had a few casualties. Such is always the case in war.
I can say that I happily weathered the storm quite well. My husband did get suckered by those sweet little faces outside our local Safeway and he came home with a box of Thin Mints and a box of Tagalongs (aka Peanut Butter Patties). We allowed the kids to have one here and there for dessert and there is still half a box of Thin Mints up in the cupboard that no one has touched for weeks. Astonishing, you might think, but they don’t actually tempt us that much anymore. The reality is that even my kids don’t think they taste all that good. Too sweet with too little real flavour.
But that minor invasion into my predominantly sugar-free home did finally spur me to (finally!) create my own low carb Tagalong recipe. We took these along with us to a friend’s house to watch the season opener of the Portland Timbers. And they were devoured by kids and adults alike, everyone saying that they tasted better than the real thing. My work here is done.
So next year, when those little girls come a’knockin’, you are well-armed. Enjoy!
