Why You’ll Love These Vegan S’mores

- The crunch from the gluten free graham crackers is pure perfection. While the chewiness of the vegan marshmallows is beyond satisfying. And the smooth richness of the chocolate is something like the cherry on top.

How To Make Chocolate Marshmallow Bars
To make these s’more cookie bars combine the flax egg, butter, sugar, vanilla, and cashew butter in a bowl. I highly recommend using hand beaters or a KitchenAid paddle to help with the mixing process, although you can mix by hand. Once smooth, add the dry ingredients and mix until thicker but still wet. Then chop up the gluten free graham crackers and the chocolate and add to the batter along with the vegan marshmallows. Mix until everything is well combined.
Add the batter to a lined 8×8 pan and bake in the oven for 15-17 minutes. The chocolate marshmallow bars will look golden on top when they are done. It’s important to let these s’more cookie bars cool in the pan for at least 20 minutes to fully set. Then they should easily come out of the pan and be ready to enjoy. These bars store nicely for a few days in an air-tight container.
