It’s Girl Scout Cookie season… and they’re everywhere.
Awkward 10-12 year-old girls wearing their green badged-clad vests making their annual pilgrimage through town with boxes full of cookies for sale.
They’re outside of the grocery store, just stopping through your doctor’s office, chilling around your Gym’s lobby, taking an impromptu tour of your office and sitting right outside your bedroom window. They’re everywhere you are, just waiting for you to cave and buy a case of thin mints, 5 boxes of Tagalogs and 3 more of Samoa’s.
And even if you manage to resist buying $300 worth of cookies, that doesn’t mean you coworkers did which means at least half of their stash will end up at your office and eventually in your mouth.
But this year, 2012, I have resisted.
The Great Girl Scout Resistance.
It’s not that I don’t enjoy a frozen Thin Mint as much as the next gal, I do – actually I probably enjoy them even more, but since I’ve already gone this long so far without 2012 Girl Scout Crack I’m curious to see if I can just all out resist it.
I imagine this is what a 25 y/o virgin feels like too?
If I’ve already gone this long…
OK maybe that’s a bad metaphor – you see my point?
But just because I’m resisting the GCC doesn’t mean my Sweet Tooth has been pulled.
It hasn’t – and fear not readers – I’ve found an alternative!
This super healthy alternative will satisfy just about anyone’s sweet treat craving, and I’m going go out on a limb and say they’ll quench your GCC cravings too, while giving you a pretty fierce dose of protein.
Protein you can use to fight evil! Like Girl Scout and their cookies!
Back to these treats, there little frozen balls of delight and they taste JUST like Cookie Dough!
But you see, they’re not dough. Or at least not what you usually think of as dough. There’s no egg, flour or sugar (except for that in the chocolate chips) in this batter.
It’s just nuts, chocolate chips, oats, a shot of agave nectar, a dash of cinnamon and a pinch of salt.
That’s it. Seriously.
So health nuts and sweet treat lovers everywhere… get ready to make some sweet fuel fit for a SUPER HERO!
