Who else is OBSESSED with Girl Scout cookies? I suppose the more appropriate question would be— who isn’t? Guess what I found on Instagram??? A keto-friendly version of Tagalongs! Thank you very much for sharing the wealth @fitfreejessi.
Beware my friends, these suckers are DEADLY!

Can the Protein powder be replaced? What does it do? Can you provide a different measure for a scoop (i.e. teaspoon, tablespoon, etc)? Thanks for your recipe, it looks delicious and would love to try it! ❤️

Hi Eileen! The protein powder ehances the shortbread texture, but you could just as easily swap it out with almond flour. 1 scoop = 2 Tbsp. Hope this helps! 🙂
