Keto Tagalong Cookies (Get Your Girl Scout Cookie Fix!)
It’s Girl Scout cookie season all year long with this keto treat!
Craving those delicious Girl Scout cookies but you’re determined to stay on track with keto? Well, this recipe will satisfy both needs! In our keto Tagalong cookies recipe, you’ll get to enjoy the sweet combo of rich almond butter and chocolate on top of a crunchy shortbread cookie base—and yes, this guilt-free recipe is in fact low carb!
Hip Recipe Tips:
- I love using these cookie cutters to create perfectly round cookies, though the set comes with some fun shape options! You can flip the scalloped edge to use the side with a nice clean circle shape (which is what I used for these cookies). If you do not have a round cookie cutter, you can also use a small glass to achieve the same circle cut-out shape.
- Dairy-free? You can replace the butter in the Tagalongs recipe with coconut oil.
- Rolling out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper is key to prevent any chance of sticking. Plus, it eliminates the need to use extra flour in the roll out process!
- Once cookies have been removed from the oven, make sure you don’t skip the step to press down the center of the cookie with a spoon or thumb. This ensures there’s a small well to fill with yummy almond/peanut butter filling!

A crunchy shortbread cookie topped with an almond and peanut butter layer covered in rich chocolate—a take on the classic Girl Scout cookie!
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup erythritol (I used Swerve granular)
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups super fine almond flour (like Bob's Red Mill)
- pinch of salt
Almond Butter Filling:
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 1 tablespoon sugar-free PB Fit
- 1 tablespoon Swerve granular
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 teaspoon butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon liquid stevia
- 7 oz. bag ChocZero sugar-free milk chocolate baking chips
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil (optional, but yields a smoother chocolate coating)
Don’t be alarmed by the high total carb count!
Fiber and erythritol (the main ingredient in Swerve) do not affect blood sugar in the same way that regular carbs do, so we subtracted them from the total carb count. You’ll see that the net carbs are much lower once you remove the sugar alcohols and fiber.
Keto or not, these cookies are a treat for everyone!
Just one bite and you’ll be in peanut butter chocolate heaven—and you’ll love that the cookie base gives a little crunch to the treat! Sorry Girl Scouts, but you’ve met your match with our homemade keto Tagalongs recipe!
