If you’re craving chocolatey marshmallow and graham crackers, then make a batch of these No-Bake S’mores Bars.
We think they’re even better than the real thing because they contain all of the essential flavors of the classic fireside dessert — made healthy.
Bonus: No campfire needed!
Instead of marshmallows (since those are made mostly of refined sugar), these sweet treats get their toasty marshmallow essence from a few drops of optional marshmallow flavor (pure vanilla extract is a good substitute).
There’s no extra sugar in these s’mores bars: Creamy Vanilla Whey Shakeology mixed with ricotta makes up the white “marshmallow” cream, and Chocolate Whey Shakeology forms the brownie-like base and crunchy chocolate topping.
To top them off, real whole-wheat graham crackers achieve a truly authentic taste.
Whether you whip up a batch as a part of your weekly meal prep or are just catering to your inner child, these s’mores bars are one satisfying snack.
