Yes, you read that right … “Keto Girl Scout Samoas.” It’s a thing!
I still don’t know the reason why some people call them “Caramel deLites,” but they will forever be Samoas in my world. Praise be to the keto gods for introducing low-carb ingredients to work with my ketogenic lifestyle.
Make note that this recipe calls for an 8×8 baking dish, however next time I will use a 9×13 for a thinner cookie layer. Probably more chocolate.
This recipe might not technically be cookies, but use your imagination here and trust that it’s much easier to make bars than it is to make cookies.

- Prepare the crust / base cookie layer.
- Preheat oven to 325.
- Whisk together almond flour, sugar substitute, salt.
- Add butter to the dry ingredients and mix well.
