A (vegan) buttery graham cracker crust, topped with a gooey chocolate (chickpea) brownie, finished with a layer of golden brown marshmallows that will give you all the camp fire feels. These healthy s’mores brownies truly are epic, try them for yourself!
I feel like s’mores recipes BLEW UP this summer on Instagram. Do you agree? I didn’t think I was going to fall into it but then I found a bag of mini marshmallows in my cabinets when I was cleaning them out 🙂
I might be a little late to the game, but I promise these are WORTH THE WAIT! Plus – I actually kind of think of s’mores as a fall time dessert – because I eat them around bon fires – and I have bon fires when it is cold out not when it is hot. So basically I am saying I am right and everyone else is wrong 😛 jk jk (kinda). I also get though that people probably camp more in the summer and so that makes sense. Anywho, they are good all year round and these are made inside your kitchen so it doesn’t matter when you want to enjoy them!
Let’s Make Some Epic S’mores Brownies!
So for this recipe I used ingredients that will give you all the true s’mores feels while making them healthier.
Starting with the crust. I used Annie’s graham crackers. They are organic, don’t contain high fructose corn syrup, and are free from artificial colors and preservatives. These are not gluten free, but you could always try a gluten free brand like Pamela’s. I have never tried it but that brand had good reviews online. If you know another, let me know!
Next up, the brownie. I used my recipe from my Bailey’s brownies. Except I nixed the Bailey’s and used milk, and subbed the Bailey’s chocolate chips for regular ones. The brownies are made with chickpeas so they are high in fiber and protein, they can be made gluten free if you use gluten free all purpose flour, and they are SOOO gooey and delicious. The best part is that these brownies are vegan. That means you can under-bake them, let them stay melty and gooey like a true smores, and you don’t have to worry about any eggs!
Last, the marshmallows. Honestly, I used regular marshmallows for mine. Which are gluten free, but they are not sugar free or vegan. If you want to use a vegan marshmallow, it looks like the brand Dandie’s might be a good one to try!
You are going to make the crust first and bake it, then top with the brownie mix. The brownie mix will take a little longer to bake through than the original recipe because of the crust underneath it, but just use a toothpick to check!
Last tip – broil the marshmallows with the pan on the lower rack of your oven. This will make sure they don’t cook too quick before you can pull them out, plus it will keep the parchment paper from burning!
In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:
- an 8×8 baking pan
- parchment paper
- food processor
Hope you enjoy these whether you are around a real camp fire or making believe at home!Print
