If you’re like me, you might be contemplating ditching the Keto diet for a bit just so you can enjoy the Girl Scout cookie season. 

But we got you sis! No need to jump ship on the diet, we have an awesome switch for you. 

Today we’re sharing with you our Keto Samoa Cookie Bars that will make you miss the Girl Scout cookie run a whole lot less this year.

Ok, so as much as we are into easy ingredients, you’ve probably realized that Keto doesn’t necessarily have “easy” baking ingredients. That’s because flour and sugar are usually staples in everyone’s house, and yet while you’re on Keto, those are the big things to stay away from. 

So we have to improvise and try to find ingredients that are going to replace those. 

For this recipe, the ingredients you probably don’t have just stocked in your kitchen on a normal basis  and one’s that may be a bit harder to find will be:

Samoa cookie bars

-Almond Flour

-Stevia Sweetener

-Swerve Brown
