Healthy Samoas Turtle Bites

Trust me when I say these taste exactly like the famous Girl Scout Samoa cookies we all love. The best part is you can enjoy four or five of them without the guilt. And I know you know the guilt I’m taking about……it usually occurs after you polish off four (or ten) of those gooey caramel delights the second they arrive on your desk from your co-workers daughter (I won’t judge you if you don’t judge me).
