Opening a fresh pack of crisp Thin Mints or creamy Tagalongs brings many people right back to their childhood. This year, Girl Scouts is celebrating 100 years of selling cookies by releasing a new s'mores flavor. Unfortunately, Girl Scout cookies aren't known for being the healthiest. (Of course, some are worse than others.) But with these healthy spins on the classic Girl Scout flavors, you can experience all the nostalgia without the added calories.
Whole Wheat Samoa Scones

Have Samoas for breakfast in the form of these pretty little scones. They're loaded with chocolate, coconut, and caramel, but made sans butter and with whole-wheat flour for a healthier spin. They'll also give you a boost of protein thanks to greek yogurt. (If you want actual cookies for breakfast, try this gluten-free Paleo Samoa Girl Scout Cookie recipe.)

S'mores Ice Cream

This "ice cream" was inspired by the same campfire classic as the latest Girl Scout cookie flavor. It's topped with bits of chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers, but the bulk is made up of bananas and avocados, which are full of healthy fats.
