I am salivating all over again just typing this blog post.

I’m not one to pick favorites.. but these Gluten-free Copycat Girl Scout Do-Si-Dos have stolen my heart.

You guys may have noticed there are a lot of girl scout recreations happening over here. First we had the Healthy Copycat Thin Mint Cookies (paleo) then Paleo Homemade Tagalong Girl Scout Cookies and most recently those Copycat Paleo Girl Scout Samoa Cookies.

There is something so satisfying about making healthy girl scout cookies. As someone who used to eat a box in a day, I am here for the homemade recreations. Especially the ones that have been made on the blog so far. I am going to try and make all of them, but today we are making my absolute favorite ones, Do-Si-Dos.

I personally think these are the forgotten cookie. We don’t hear about them much and I don’t even see them on the current Girl Scout site for cookies! They are the best in my opinion. And even though these aren’t exactly the same – they are close enough in my opinion.

If you are wondering what a Do-Si-Do is, it’s two shortbread cookies with a delicious peanut butter filling. Except these are healthier version and they are gluten-free.

Let’s run through the ingredients needed to bake these:

  • Creamy peanut butter – the creamier the better! I don’t think crunch would work as well.
  • Unsalted butter – you can sub vegan butter if needed.
  • Egg – I haven’t tested flax egg
  • Coconut sugar – this can’t be subbed. We need a grainier sweetener here
  • Gluten-free oat flour – I haven’t tested another gf sub but spelt flour works too
  • Gluten-free rolled oats – you can sub steel cut too
  • Wedderspoon Manuka Honey – sweetens the peanut butter filling and makes it extra sticky to sandwich between the cookies

    1. These are delicious! I had to use what I had at home so we had to substitute granulated sugar, all purpose flour and the honey we had at home. 😋

    2. Holy cow are these good!! Mine turned out a bit soft, not crunchy at all. The flavor is amazing and my husband said I could make these every day!

    3. These cookies came out so good! I substituted oat flour for all purpose flour and Manuka honey for maple syrup. Amazing!

    4. It was a lot of fun to make these copycat cookies, and they taste great. Peanut butter is one of my favorites, so, when I saw this recipe, I had to try it. I too, like others, made some substitutions with respect to the flour and sugar.
