Keto Peanut Butter Patties (Girl Scout Cookie Knockoff)

One of my favorite Girl Scout Cookie are peanut butter patties or as I knew them when I was in girl scouts Tagalongs!!! So I had to make a keto version when I saw they were on sale last year. I made a delicious shortbread cookie topped with a sweetened peanut butter mixture and dunked the whole thing in chocolate. It was heavenly and looked exactly like the tagalongs I remember!




Secret to the crispy cookie is egg white protein powder. I used "It's Just" brand I found on Amazon. You don't need a lot so a bag goes a long way! Unfortunately I have not been able to get a crispy keto cookie without it, I have tried! You can use this cookie in many applications, if you enjoy shortbread plain or dipped in chocolate and nuts. I even used it as a bottom of a keto Twix!


I didn't try any other granular sweetener but I'm sure swerve would work or allulose. Monkfruit sweetener from Lakanto is just my go to sweetener of choice. I found out why most keto products had a variety of sweeteners in them. It gives a better overall flavor because when you add sweeteners in big amounts they tend to have a weird or off putting flavor.


I prefer coconut flour over almond flour. I just don't prefer the texture almond flour gives to baked goods, and you have to use a lot more almond flour in the recipes than coconut flour. If you want to try subbing out the coconut flour for almond flour, you have to do 3-4x as much almond flour. So 165-220 g or 1 1/4 Cup + 1 Tbs.-1 3/4 Cup of almond flour.
