Make Tagalongs at home with only 7 simple ingredients. We’re using almond flour cookies, peanut butter and melted chocolate chips to create a vegan and gluten-free version of this Girl Scout classic!

I am so dang excited to share this recipe because everyone has been obsessed with my Girl Scout cookie recreations. Both the healthy samoas and these thin mints were major hits so I know you’re going to love the Tagalongs.

Early taste-testers have said that they’re the best Girl Scout cookie recreation yet and given my love for all things peanut butter and chocolate, they’re definitely on the top of my list too!

I think another reason I’m obsessed with these cookies (besides the flavor) is the texture! The crunchy cookie center is soooo satisfying.

Don’t get me wrong, I love protein balls that taste like cookies, but sometimes they aren’t satisfying when I’m craving the real deal. My brain can tell when I’m eating a cookie and when I’m eating a cookie-wanna-be!

I’m so glad this recipe is finally in your hands. I know it will be hard to share these cookies with friends and family (you’ll want to save them all for yourself), but share the love!

Let’s make Girl Scout cookie season a little healthier for everyone. 🙂

Ingredients in Healthy Tagalongs

Traditional Tagalongs have lots of not-so-good-for-you ingredients like palm oil, white sugar and artificial flavors! In true EBF fashion I decided to skip all those ingredients and stick to seven healthy and simple ingredients to create a vegan and gluten-free version of this Girl Scout classic!

  • almond flour almond flour gives these cookies the perfect consistency. I have tested these cookies with both all-purpose flour and oat flour and the cookies turned out well with both. Note: If you do use all-purpose flour, you’ll need to add a touch of liquid as the dough turns out quite dry. I added 1 Tablespoon of almond milk and it worked perfectly. See more almond flour recipes here.
  • coconut oil 
  • pure maple syrup – I love the flavor and sweetness this gives the cookies, but you can sub this for any liquid sweetener of your choice like honey, agave, monk fruit maple syrup, etc. 
  • vanilla
  • sea salt
  • peanut butter – Tagalongs are traditionally made with peanut butter, but feel free to use a different nut or seed butter instead.
  • chocolate chips – I like to use Lily’s dark chocolate chips to keep this recipe lower in sugar, vegan and dairy-free.

Steps for Making the Tagalongs

These healthy Tagalongs are super simple to make… the hardest part might be waiting for the cookies to bake or maybe it’s waiting for the chocolate to set… either way, the whole process doesn’t take long so before you know it you’ll be diving in to these tasty peanut butter chocolate cookies.

Preheat oven: Preheat oven to 350°F.

Combine ingredients: Add almond flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and sea salt in a medium bowl and mix together. 

Form cookies: Scoop dough using a tablespoon and form into a round cookie shape, use your finger to create a small dent in the center of each cookie. 

Bake: Place cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes or until cookies are slightly golden brown on the bottom. Let cool completely on the cookie sheet.

Spread peanut butter: Once cookies have cooled, add 1/2-1 teaspoon of peanut butter into the dent of each cookie and spread it a little over the top.

Chill: Place cookies in the fridge or freezer for about 15-30 minutes to let the peanut butter harden up a bit.

Melt chocolate: Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in a double boiler or in the microwave. For the microwave method, add chips and coconut oil to a microwave safe bowl and heat for 1 minute, stir and heat in 30 second increments until chocolate has melted.

Dip cookies: Remove cookies from the fridge/freezer and dip each into the melted chocolate, one by one. Use a fork to dip and remove the cookie from the chocolate, making sure to let the excess chocolate drip off before transferring back to the baking sheet lined with parchment. 

Let chocolate set: Place chocolate covered cookies in the fridge or freezer for about 15-20 minutes to let chocolate set. Once hardened it’s time to enjoy!

How to Store Healthy Tagalongs

If you’re not eating these cookies right away I recommend storing them in an airtight container in your fridge for up to one week. You can also store them in your freezer and they should last 3 months… but I bet they’ll be gone before then! 😉

  1. My husband and I love the thin mint cookies. Looking for to trying the peanut butter tagalongs. Thank you for the fabulous recipes that you so generously share.

    1. 5 stars
      Thank you for the delicious and easy recipe!! I know these are supposed to be vegan but would they work with butter instead of coconut oil? Not crazy about the coconut taste.

      1. I recommend using refined coconut oil. It doesn’t have the same pronounced coconut flavor that unrefined coconut oil has.

  2. Is the nutrition estimate correct for 1 cookie? I’m looking at a box of original Girl Scout Tagalongs and they are 140 calories, 8g sugar, 9g fat and 2g protein for 2 cookies.

    1. I was thinking the same thing! The nutrition facts aren’t that healthy! The real Girl Scout cookie is actually healthier if you break everything down!

      1. Hey Nadine, The calories and nutrition stats might not be that much different than the GS cookies, but this version has way less ingredients than the originals and no artificial ingredients. In my opinion they are much healthier and it’s nice to know what ingredients you’re putting in your body. 🙂

  3. 5 stars
    Great recipes!!! My kids will eat this all the time, plus the ingredients are simple enough
    that they can make it themselves.Love it!!!

  4. This sounds amazing! I used to love Tagalongs before I had to go gluten free. Sadly, I also can no longer have peanuts. And now almonds as well. I can definitely use cashew butter as a peanut butter substitute, but is there anything that can properly sub in for the almond flour? It’s been such a bummer not being able to have those! And I now have an oral allergy to sunflower seeds. I sure miss Tagalongs!

  5. 5 stars
    Made these for my son’s 20th bday. He has Celiac Disease and has never had a tagalong (my favorite Girl Scout cookie!). So grateful he can now have an idea what they taste like… these r pretty close! Rarely do I try one of these online recipes and have them actually turn out like the pics or video. But these did! However, I doubled the recipe and only came out w 16 cookies, so I must have a vastly different opinion on what the size of a cookie should b!🤣 I will b adding this to my list of favorite sweet treats! If u r wondering if u should try this one… DO IT!

    1. Hi Tami!! This warms my heart so much. I’m so glad you decided to try this recipe and that your son enjoyed these. I made my cookies a little on the smaller size, but it’s totally fine to make them a little bigger. 🙂

    1. Yes! Honey instead of maple syrup should work just fine. Be sure to come back and let me know how they turn out for you!

  6. Can we use ground almond instead of flour? Will that change consistency of dough? Almond flour is sooo expensive..
    BTW, thanks for great recipes, I use them almost every day 🙂

    1. Hey Ninna – I would use a flour here because it will probably change the consistency of the dough. Here is a good recipe for homemade almond flour that you could always try.

    1. Yay!! So glad you enjoyed these cookies, Katy. I really appreciate you coming back to leave a comment + star rating. It means the world to me. <3

    Made these tonight and they were GREAT! I am however wondering same thing as, Shana. Are the nutrition facts you provide for one cookie only? Girl Scout cookies are two cookies per serving and total 140 calories, 8g fat, 13g carbs and 3g protein.

    1. Hey Jackie – Yes, the nutrition info listed is for one cookie. I know that might not seem “healthier” than the Girl Scout version, but in this recipe we’re using healthier ingredients and only 7. The GS tagalongs include artificial flavors, white sugar, palm oil and a bunch of other ingredients that aren’t the greatest. 🙂

    1. I haven’t tried this recipe with APF. You could try it, but I’m not sure the flour to coconut oil ratio would be the same because almond flour has more fat than APF.

  8. 5 stars
    Made these yesterday… Not hard to make, just a few simple steps- worth every minute it takes to make …and every single calorie 😊. Thanks for another fantastic recipe

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed these cookies, Lisa!! Thanks for trying my recipe and for coming back to leave a comment + star rating. It means the world to me. <3

    1. Ahh that makes me so happy to hear, Tommi! So glad you enjoyed these cookies. Thanks for coming back to leave a comment and star rating. It means the world to me. <3

  9. I’m looking forward to trying these cookies however, I will replace the peanut butter with almond butter 🙂 Thanks!

  10. 5 stars
    These are so easy and delicious and basically guilt free! I think I made mine a little too big because my recipe only yielded 7.. but I actually am fine with that since I live alone and don’t want to waste food/feel pressured to eat a ton of cookies!

    1. The bigger the cookie, the better, in my opinion! 🙂 So glad you enjoyed these cookies, Joanna. Thanks for coming back to leave a comment and star rating. I so appreciate it!

  11. 5 stars
    Oh my! These are SO good!! I only got 9 out of my dough so next time I’ll have to double it. The pre-cooked dough was good enough to eat on its own.😋 Super easy to make👍🏻👍🏻

    1. Yay!! So glad you loved this recipe, Audra! You can never go wrong with a double batch. 🙂 Thanks for coming back to leave a comment and star rating, I so appreciate it.

  12. 5 stars
    Better than the real Girl Scout cookies! These Tagalongs are a new staple in our home! They are so delicious and easy to make.

    1. Ahh yay!! That makes me so happy to hear, Adriana! So glad you’re loving these cookies. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment + star rating. It’s super helpful to other readers, so I appreciate it. <3

  13. Hi there! Could I substitute regular GF flour for the almond flour on a 1-to-1 ratio? What would you do? Thank you!

    1. I haven’t tried it, but that should be just fine! Let me know how it turns out for you. 🙂

  14. 5 stars
    These cookies are DIVINE. So easy to make, only require a few pantry-staples, and taste amazing. I love to keep a few in the freezer for whenever I need a little pick-me-up!

    1. Yay!! So glad you enjoyed these cookies, Fiona. Thanks for trying them and for coming back to leave a comment and star rating. I really appreciate it. <3

    1. Ahh that makes me so happy to hear, Shelly!! So glad you’re a fan of these cookies. Thanks for coming back to leave a comment and star rating. I really appreciate it!

    1. Hey Emily! I’ve never worked with cassava flour and I’m not sure how it works as a sub for almond flour!

  15. 3 stars
    These cookies were good if they were meant to be so strongly coconut flavored. I wish there had been a review or a note about how strong the coconut oil would taste, because I wasn’t expecting it to taste like a coconut cookie (and I even used slightly less oil than in the recipe). Overall, it was still delicious, but I am not a huge fan of coconut and will hopefully be trying this recipe again with a vegan butter instead! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe and inspiring me to make homemade Girl Scout cookies!

    1. Hey Rachel – I’m so sorry to hear that you didn’t love the taste of these cookies. What type of coconut oil did you use? Refined coconut oil has more of a neutral aroma and taste so it doesn’t taste like coconut where virgin coconut oil has more of a coconut taste / smell. I’d try refined coconut oil next time or else yes, you can use vegan butter or another oil!

  16. 5 stars
    These are so good! Takes so quick and it’s the perfect food to snack on. I use canola oil instead of coconut and it was no problem

  17. 5 stars
    I made this cookie last FRiday and they are amazing!do ou have any hint on how to make it not melt the chocolate when eating?

    1. Hi Júlia. I’m so glad you’re enjoying them! If you’re able to cut back on the amount of coconut oil you use to thin the chocolate, the chocolate coating will be thicker but won’t melt as much. Let me know if this makes sense.

  18. 5 stars
    These have got to be the most satisfying cookies I’ve ever eaten! It’s hard for me to believe they’re healthy (compared to what’s out there, my brain perceives these are healthy cookies). My batter resulted in 6 cookies but those 6 cookies were pure bliss and were demolished sooner than I would’ve liked! I’ve shared this recipe with nearly everyone I know, even the non-peanut butter lovers. Because these cookies are that divine! Got to share the recipe! I can’t wait to dive deeper into your other recipes! So glad I stumbled on your blog ❤️

    1. Ahh that makes me so happy to hear, Karishma! I’m so glad these were a hit. Thank you for sharing my recipe and for coming back to leave a comment + star rating. It’s super helpful to other readers, so I appreciate it. <3

  19. 5 stars
    These are so good! I am very new at healthy eating and am mainly trying to cut back on sugar, so I used APF and butter (since I only have virgin coconut oil and didn’t want them to taste coconutty) and they are delicious! I made my cookies a little too thick, so I will amend that next time I make them, which will probably be tomorrow since they are going fast. Thanks for this wonderful site! It’s very helpful as I start a journey to better eating!

  20. I am currently making these using your recipe. You say this yields 14 cookies but it really only makes around 6 cookies. You may want to update the recipe or how much this recipe actually yields. I guess that’s why the others are letting you know how much cookies they made out of the recipe. Thanks! 🙂

    1. You’re so welcome, Mandy! I’m glad you loved these cookies. Thanks for making them and for coming back to leave a comment + star rating. I appreciate it. <3

  21. 5 stars
    This is my go to healthy chocolate recipe! But mine have more calories because I use cashew butter instead of peanut butter, I never buy maple syrup because I get local raw honey from the farmers market. This other alternative is probably bad but I use special dark chocolate chips from Hershey’s. Mine come out to 349 calories. So I only eat these when I need to meet my calorie goal and I’m under. Or when I really want something sweet!

    1. So glad you’re loving these cookies, Alexandra! Thanks for coming back to leave a comment + star rating. I so appreciate it. 🙂

  22. 5 stars
    So good! I have never had a Tagalog, but I guess I was missing out because these are delicious! This is one of my faves of Brittany’s desserts for sure.

    My batch only made 9, so next time I have to double up because I can easily eat 2 per day. Lol Thanks as always, Brittany!

    1. Ahh yay, that makes me so happy to hear!! I’m so glad you loved these. They’re definitely don’t last long around here either!

  23. 5 stars
    I have made MANY of Brittany’s recipes from eatingbirdfood and these are DEFINITELY one of my favorites!! They are so so so satisfying for a sweet tooth, much better ingredients than the real thing, and pretty simple to make since it’s minimal ingredients!

    1. Oh no, that’s strange! I am showing all the steps on my end. How many steps are showing up on your side? There should be 5 steps total.

  24. 5 stars
    I made these wonderful cookies tonight. So easy and so delicious. I will be making these cookies again. Just love all your recipes!

  25. Hi! Sorry if this is a repeat question— I tried looking in the comments but didn’t see this asked. I was wondering if you have tried to swap the maple syrup with agave? Thank you 😊

  26. I was curious…my family is not the biggest fan of coconut. Would i be able to use butter vs the coconut oil?
    Thank you. Excited to try these.

    1. The coconut oil is just to help thin out the chocolate, so you can skip it the chocolate might just not dip as easily.

      1. It looks like there’s 2tbsp of coconut oil in the almond cookie? What would you recommend as a swap?

  27. 5 stars
    These were amazing! They didn’t make it two days.😬 Time to buy more chocolate so I can make more.

    1. Yay!! So glad they were a hit. Thanks for coming back to leave a review, Kaylee. I appreciate it. 🙂

  28. 1 star
    I tried to make these following the directions, but they were so dry & I had to add way more oil to the dough to make it even bind 🤷‍♀️

  29. 5 stars
    Made these last night and they were super easy and very delicious! Also had all of the ingredients in my pantry. Perfect simple recipe when you’re craving something sweet!

  30. 5 stars
    So delicious! I love that these are simple to make with ingredients I already had. My boyfriend and his mom loved them. Will definitely have to double or triple the batch next time! Thank you for a great recipe! ♥️

    1. So glad these tagalongs were a hit! Thanks for making them and for coming back to leave a review, Gerly. I so appreciate it!

    These are delicious! Hard to not eat them all at once though, just like an actual box of girl scout cookies lol.

  33. 5 stars
    I made these because the samoa recipe was so yummy!!! I am a sucker for anything chocolate and peanut butter, so I had to try! I had all the ingredients except almond flour, so I used cake flour instead 🤷🏻‍♀️ They turned out great- with a nice crunch!!! So yummy! This time around I actually took Brittany’s tip and doubled the recipe!😉

    1. Ahh yay!! So glad you loved these cookies, Amber! Good call on doubling them! Thanks for the review. I so appreciate it. 🙂

  34. 5 stars
    I know most EBF cookies recipes are good – but these were TRULY AMAZING! 1000x better than the real thing. The thin mint recipe has always been my go-to, but these may be my new favorite recipe! I needed less chocolate and PB than the recipe calls for, but was able to repurpose the leftover chocolate for more cookies 🙂 Highly recommended!

    1. Ahh yay!! That makes me so happy to hear, Rachel. So pumped you loved these cookies. Thanks for the review. I really appreciate it. 🙂

  35. 5 stars
    these are outrageously simple to make and super, super tasty. I ended up using Lakanto’s monkfruit maple syrup instead of real maple syrup to cut back on the sugar and they still held together great! Would definitely make these again 🙂

    1. So glad you enjoyed these cookies, Nina! Thanks for making them and for coming back to leave a review. I so appreciate it!

    1. Yay!! So glad you loved these cookies, Suzanne! Thanks for making them and for coming back to leave a review. I so appreciate it!

    So easy and so delicious!! Will be making these over and over and over and over. Gave some to my dad and he said anytime you want to make these is fine with me! Totally family hit.

  37. Can we use regular salt if sea salt is not on hand?
    Would the measurement be the same if it can be used?

  38. 5 stars
    These are my favorite “Girl Scout” cookie thus far. I legit could eat the entire pan! Super easy to make and in my opinion, they taste better than the original. Thank you for another amazing recipe!

    1. Ahh yay! That makes me so happy to hear, Jodie. So pumped you loved these. Thanks for the review. I appreciate it.

    I’m type 2 Diabetic. Have to watch carbs, fat, cholesterol, triglycerides, calories.
    All of that is inn one cookie. Please tell me how these are healthy

    1. Hey Sandy – I know that might not seem “healthy,” but compared to the traditional Girl Scout cookies they are in my book. In this recipe we’re using healthier ingredients and only 7. The GS tagalongs include artificial flavors, white sugar, palm oil and a bunch of other ingredients that aren’t the greatest. This might just not be the recipe for you if you have to watch your carbs, fat, calories and cholesterol.

    These cookies taste amazing!! Just like the original Girl Scout Cookie! With just a few simple ingredients, the flavor these cookies bring is EXCELLENT! Will be making again and again. Thank you EBF for the healthier version!!

    1. Yay!! That makes me so happy to hear. Thanks for making these and for coming back to leave a review. I so appreciate it!

    Its actually shocking how close these resemble the girl scout cookies! The cookie dough smells *amazing* and the end result tastes even better!!

    1. Yay!! That makes me so happy to hear. Thanks for making these and for coming back to leave a review, Maddie. I so appreciate it!

  42. One of the best cookie recipes. They taste better than the original Girl Scout cookies. I’ve made them 3 times in a month, they are addicting!

    Thanks for the amazing recipe!

    This is the second “girl scout cookie” recipe I’ve tried (the Samoas are amazing). These were just as delicious and easy to make, I just wish the recipe made more (I only got 9 cookies using my cookie scoop). My chocolate was pretty melty even after setting in the fridge so I will try tempering it next time.

    1. Yay!! So glad you loved these, Jennifer!! Maybe try placing them in the freezer to set? Thanks for coming back to leave a review. I so appreciate it.

    Wow, these are lovely & so quick and easy to make too. Who needs the real thing, when you can make these at home and throughout the year too!

    We made this healthy Tagalong recipe this past week for the EBF Recipe Club, and WOW!! They are perfection with a perfectly crisp biscuit-like cookie inside, creamy peanut butter filling and a smooth chocolate coating. Our family is in love! <3

    These are so good and easy to make. I used almond butter instead of peanut butter and they turned out great. Thank you for providing so many delicious and quick recipes!

  52. 5 stars
    LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I did not grow up really eating Girl Scout cookies but I liked the idea of the Peanut Butter and chocolate combo, so decided to give it try.
    1. Super duper easy to make
    2. Had ALL the ingredients in the house so no special trip to the grocery store
    3. Delicious

    I would definitely recommend this one and look forward to trying out some more of your recipes!

    1. So glad you loved these, Monica!! Thanks for making my recipe and for coming back to leave a review. I so appreciate it!

    Wow, so yummy! I’m so thankful to have Girl Scout cookie taste-alikes that don’t bother my food sensitivies. Thank you, thank you, thank you for developing this collection of recipes! I used 72% dark chocolate chips, so the taste of the chocolate was definitely deeper and darker than the GS version, but still good! I was pleasantly surprised how crispy the cookies are.

    1. Yay!! So glad you loved this recipe, Elizabeth. Thanks for the review. I so appreciate it!

  54. 5 stars
    I have tried this recipe along with the thin mints recipe and both are amazing! My husband has even said he likes them more than girl scout cookies 🙂 that’s a win!

    1. Woo!! That makes me so happy to hear! So pumped both recipes were a hit! Thanks for the review. I so appreciate it!

  55. How are these considered more healthy exactly? The calories for 2 GSC is 140. Your recipe is 1 cookie for 138. You also have 1 more gram of sat fat and 2 more grams of sugar in your one, slightly larger cookie. The carbs are the same. I’m so sick of people saying their recipe is the “healthy” version when in reality it’s the same.

    1. Hey Jay – I know that might not seem “healthy,” but compared to the traditional Girl Scout cookies they are in my book. Healthier doesn’t always mean less calories and fat. In this recipe we’re using healthier ingredients and only 7. The GS tagalongs include artificial flavors, white sugar, palm oil and a bunch of other ingredients that aren’t the greatest. And in my recipe we’re using real, whole food ingredients.

  56. 5 stars
    Thanks for the recipe.
    At first I had to agree with Jay Luc… Carb wise…. however. If I use choc Zero’s maple syrup it drops the carb count to Three carb per cookie. that also depends on the peanut butter used. the syrup comes to 2 carb grams per cookie.

    These are amazing! Haven’t finished my first batch and already made another. I did burn the bottoms a bit after only 12 min in the over so I would keep an eye on them.

    Hey Brittany! I tried these and thumbs up but I see step 4 has a Vimeo link (instead of directions)? Just wanted to ensure I was looking at it correctly.

    1. I wouldn’t use coconut flour for this recipe as coconut flour soaks up way more liquid than other flours and can’t be subbed 1:1.

    1. I’m sure that would work just fine, but I haven’t tried it! Let me know how the cookies turn out. 🙂

    Just made these. AMAZING. Mine only made 10 cookies though and they were pretty small. I used sugar free maple syrup. Definitely going to make them again. This was my first time using almond flour too!

    1. Woo! So glad this recipe worked out for you, Christine! Thanks for coming back to leave a review and star rating, I really appreciate it.

    I just made these and they are so so delicious!! I only had oat flour on hand and it still worked beautifully. The crunchy chocolate outside and the salty peanut butter with the sweet cookie… divine!! Even better than the actual Tagalongs!

    1. Yay! I’m so glad these were a hit for you, Alyssa! Thank you for coming back to leave a review and star rating, I really appreciate it.

  61. I just made these and WOW so good!!! I replaced the lily’s chocolate with dark chocolate because it’s what I had on hand and I prefer dark chocolate. They were so yummy! It also makes a good amount that you don’t have too many. I got 9 out of the recipe. But now I’m gonna have to make more soon because they are going quick! Haha

    1. Woo! So glad these were a hit for you Serenée! Dark chocolate sounds perfectly delicious! Thanks for coming back to leave a review, I appreciate it.

    Dang! These taste 👍. The almond flour brought out such a yummy taste. The peanut butter and chocolate compliment it well. I was going to post a pic but there isn’t a option to do so. Simple to make as well. I just used milk chocolate chips with a little of semi-sweet. They really do taste like tag a longs. My only advice is to consider the size. I made mine a little too thick lol but even then still good. They exceeded my expectations. I recommend this whole-heartedly.

    1. Woo! That makes me so happy to hear, Big AL! Thank you so much for leaving a review and star rating, I really appreciate it.

  63. Instructions are unclear. The ingredients call for 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, but step 2 involves mixing the coconut oil for the cookie base while step 7 calls for melting the coconut oil with chocolate. Can you clarify this?

    1. Hi, Airy. Per the ingredients listed, you need 2 Tablespoons melted coconut oil + 2 teaspoons for chocolate. The 2 Tablespoons are to be melted into the cookie base and the 2 teaspoons are for the chocolate. I hope this helps!

    1. Hi Tara – Recently I have been loving Trader Joes Natural PB, but I also enjoy Whole Foods Natural PB as well.

    These turned out perfectly! I am experienced with vegan baking but transitioning to more gluten free recipes, this seriously has me questioning why I hadn’t tried switching earlier. Perfect texture and reminded me of the original girl scout cookie. I like keeping them chilled .thank you!

    1. AHH! This is the BEST! I am so excited to hear that you are loving this recipe and that it is a hit. Thank you for coming back and sharing your review + star rating, I really appreciate it!
