s’mores cookie {vegan + gluten-free}

When I was young I didn’t like s’mores. Not because they’re not delicious, but because they’re messy to make and the process of assembling them gave me anxiety.

Well younger me, do I have a solution for you, you little weirdo!

Introducing, the vegan and gluten-free s’mores cookie! Solving anxious kid’s problems since 2016. No sticky fingers, no flaming marshmallows poking an eye out, no melting chocolate smeared all over your face. Just one damn good cookie with all the s’mores fixins.

Last year I posted a recipe for homemade marshmallows and graham crackers (they were a hit btw!). With the long weekend coming up, I didn’t have time for the extra steps and I had some Dandies vegan marshmallows hanging around that needed using up. I changed up the graham cracker recipe to make it a little more cookie-like, added some chocolate chunks and voila – s’mores cookie!

This is what they look like pre-oven:

Here’s what they look like fresh out of the oven. They have the cutest little mushroom hats:

And here’s my new little kitty’s smoosh face trying to eat them cause he’s a little beast and tries to eat anything and everything. I swear he is a dog in a cat’s body:

Not to toot my own horn, but I’ve really outdone myself this time, these babies are gooooooood.

Don’t just take my word for it, try them for yourself and let me know how it goes.

Now all that’s missing is some plaid and a campfire!

Happy Long Weekend (Canadian) friends!
