Don’t be sad that it’s Girl Scout Cookie season, because now it’s gluten-free Girl Scout Cookie season, and you can partake in gluten-free Thin Mints. You can even dive into Paleo Girl Scout Cookies, otherwise known as Paleo Thin Mints.
Give thanks for this to the fabulous Tammy Credicott, author of Paleo Indulgences. Without her book, full of fabulous Paleo recipes (including a couple of Paleo Girl Scout Cookie recipes), I would not have thought of making this delicious gluten-free dessert.
Makes 20 Thin Mints
Store your Paleo Thin Mints in the freezer for the best texture and crispy crunch.
These healthy, gluten-free cookies are the perfect hostess gift, housewarming present, or DIY holiday gift. Since Purim is right around the corner (February 23, 2013) you can give gluten-free Thin Mints alongside your Hamantaschen.
I love to reduce, reuse, and recycle. So when I give gifts for holidays such as Purim, I focus on making something simple, yet special, and definitely not wasteful. I place my homemade baked goods in reusable tins. You can purchase used tins for your cookies and candies at your local thrift store. Carefully scrub and de-glutenize the tins, then run them through the dishwasher. This makes a great gluten-free holiday gift, or hostess gift, and reduces waste during Christmas and other holidays such as Purim.
