March 12th is National Girl Scouts Day, and we’re taking advantage by participating in the age-old tradition of Girl Scout Cookie season! While we love a good cookie, we love inclusion even more. So, we’ve rounded up some of the best allergen-conscious imitation recipes for you to recreate in your own kitchen. Want the real deal? Check out our Girl Scout cookie allergens guide to determine which cookies are safe for food allergies.*

Thin Mint Cookies (Free of dairy, soy, gluten, grain, egg, peanut, tree nut)
Nothing beats munching on the refreshing, chocolatey goodness of a classic thin mint cookie. Nutritional therapy practitioner and founder of Unbound Wellness, Michelle Hoover, shares her thin mint cookie recipe. Made with ingredients like maple syrup, peppermint extract, and dairy free chocolate chips, this imitation is just as satisfying the real thing.
Do Si Do Cookies (Free of dairy, gluten, egg, nut)
A cookie with a decadent filling? Count us in! Kelly, founder of the pretty bee believes that you can enjoy amazing, easy recipes even when cooking for multiple food allergies. We happen to agree. This sunbutter oat cookie recipe with a creamy filling will not disappoint.
Samoas (Free of gluten and dairy)
The Samoa is a gooey, caramel, coconut masterpiece that seemed impossible to recreate…until we found this gluten and dairy free recipe! Silvana created Silvana’s Kitchen to share gluten-free, dairy-free recipes and products without sacrificing flavor and texture. These Samoas deliver against that promise.
We hope our Girl Scout cookie allergens guide and these allergen-conscious Girl Scout cookie imitation recipes allow you to confidently participate in Girl Scout cookie season!
