When my daughter was much younger, I used to wait anxiously for the month when the Girl Scout cookies were ready to be sold. I bought boxes of Samoas cookies and Thin Mints and froze them so we could enjoy them during the year. This Samoas Bars recipe takes me right back to those days. Since it is passed the time for the Girl Scout sales, I have to improvise when I have a yen for them.
Make your own Samoas Bars
Sadly, those days are long gone, but the good news is that you don’t have to be a Girl Scout to enjoy Girl Scout cookies. To get my fix for the taste of the delightful Samoas, I now make them myself.
The Samoas bars recipe combines luscious chocolate and caramel, with coconut and whole wheat pastry flour and is just plain delicious.
Am I the only one out there who remembers Girl scout days, not for the organization and what it does, but for those silly Girl Scout cookies? How about you, are you a Girl Scout cookie fan? If so, this bar is for you. Look at the delicious caramel and chocolate combo!

With a few adaptations this recipe can be vegan friendly. In place of the butter use, Earth Balance spread in place of the butter and your favorite egg replacement, and make sure to use vegan dark chocolate chips and vegan butterscotch chips. (Enjoy Life is a good brand.)
Coconut has oil in it quite naturally, so the bars may feel a bit greasy at first but this should reabsorb back into the bars in the first day. Coconut varies as to the oil content depending on the brand, so if yours is greasy, you can use less butter than the recipe calls for.
These are a great copy cat recipe, but if you want the real deal, our Affiliate Amazon still has Samoas girl scout cookies for sale.
