  1. Are you guys kidding!
    Samosa is a savoury snack food wrapped in rice paper.
    The above recipe is so full of sweetness I’d throw up. Going Paleo does not mean finding other ways to have tons of sweetness.

    1. Katie,

      Thank you for your comment. However, I am referring to the Samoa girl scout cookie, not samosas. This post was intended to give people who have a sweet tooth a healthier alternative to the traditional girl scout cookie.
