Healthier Samoa Cookies

It’s about that time of year for Girl Scout Cookies. I love Girl Scout Cookies and my all time favorite flavor is samoa. I love the coconut/caramel/chocolate flavor combo and the cookie layer adds the perfect amount of crunch. Clearly, I love samoas. However, instead of buying girl scout cookies this year, I decided to make my own version of healthier samoa cookies.

Low Sugar Pralines

I have been on a serious praline kick lately. I love Trader Joes pralines, but I don’t love the ingredients. Most praline recipes are loaded with sugar, so I wanted to make a lower sugar version of this delicious treat. These low sugar pralines are sweetened with monkfruit sweetener. Monkfruit sweetener is a zero calorie, zero sugar natural alternative to sugar. For this recipe, I used Lakanto Monkfruit Baking Sweetener.

Black Bean Brownies

I was honestly so surprised how easy it was to put this recipe together and how much the batter tastes like brownies! Only this recipe is gluten free, vegan, contains no refined sugar, is rich in fiber, and made with real food ingredients!
