S’mores Brownies are a decadent treat with a healthy substitute you’d never guess. A graham cracker crust topped with dark chocolate brownies coated with toasty marshmallows make this dessert irresistible, and just like a classic campfire treat, vegan!
Plant-Based Brownies Everyone Will Love
S’mores, in brownie form! So, s’mores brownies. This title speaks for itself.
I thought about posting regular s’mores, but that would be a far cry from a recipe (even for me). So, I wanted to think of something a bit more exciting (but just as delicious). These s’mores brownies have a crispy graham cracker base, a fudge-y dark chocolate interior, and a toasty topping of marshmallows and melty chocolate pieces. All of our favorite campfire flavors, no open flame required.
I know that many people are getting tired of cooking/baking during COVID (honestly, same?) so these brownies do have an option to simplify with using a boxed mix. I will recommend the Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate every day. In all honesty, the components for this recipe come together very quickly and mainly in a blender. We’re even using a secret ingredient to sub out the butter -avocado!
Avocado lends a super creamy texture to this recipe, along with a dose of healthy fat. It’s flavor is completely masked by the cocoa powder and chocolate pieces. As a bonus, I was actually out of butter when making these and it worked great. If you don’t have any avocados (or any that are ripe, for that matter), I’m sure that 1/2 cup of softened butter could sub. We also use avocado in this 5-Minute Chocolate Pudding!
How to Make S’mores Brownies
After lining a pan with parchment paper (for easy release post-baking), you’ll break some graham crackers into squares and coat the base of the baking dish.
Then, you’ll whip up a brownie batter for the middle layer. As mentioned above, I am providing an option for homemade or boxed mix, so just go with what you have on hand. This will get baked at 350 degrees F for about 40 minutes.
While the brownies are baking, you can prepare a topping of crushed graham crackers, chopped chocolate, and mini marshmallows. After you remove the brownies from the oven you will top them with these and broil for a couple of minutes to toast.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! Please let me know in the comments or on Instagram if you give it a try.
