If you’ve ever had a Tagalong, you will be shocked at how similar these taste! No one will even be able to tell that this is a vegan cookie recipe! But if you’ve never been able to have a Tagalong either due to dairy allergies or being vegan then you NEED this Vegan Tagalong Copycat recipe! You no longer need to miss out on Girl Scout Cookie season. This copycat is the only vegan cookie recipe you need. 

Now, why do I love Tagalongs or Peanut Butter Patties so much? Because I have an obsession with peanut butter & chocolate!! Seriously, the best flavor combination on earth. The proof is in how many recipes I have already created with peanut butter and chocolate on my Instagram feed.

It is such a freeing feeling to eat what you crave, and I am constantly craving these cookies. Part of my mission is to show you that even with food allergies or other past struggles, all food is fuel and can spread love and joy. Baking up a batch of these Vegan Tagalong Copycats is a sure way to live out that mission!
