S’mores Bars Recipe 

 

This recipe is divided into 3 super easy parts. The crust, the chocolate, and the marshmallow on top.  

 

The crust. 

This crust is composed of medjool dates, graham crackers, cashew butter, and protein powder. 

By adding the protein powder to it, it allows these to fill up stomachs and provide a source of protein for a protein snack between meals. 

We added our Plant Protein+ to it. It only has 5 ingredients and 25 grams of protein per serving. We find that our protein choice and it's light vanilla flavor make the addition to the crust almost tasteless. Therefore, these bars taste exactly like s'mores!

 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer 

The chocolate is dark chocolate and cashew butter mixed over heat. If you are making these for kids, you may want to consider using semi-sweet chocolate or milk chocolate. From my experience, kids do not love dark chocolate.  

 

Marshmallow Layer 

The final layer is just toasted marshmallows. You can toast it with a cooking torch, or if you do not have one of those, just use your broiler on low for a minute or so. If you use the broiler, keep an eye on it as marshmallows can burn very quickly.  

 

Storing and Slicing 

Once you're done making the recipe, pop them into a refrigerator for about 20 minutes so that the chocolate can harden a bit again. Try not to refrigerate them for more than 30 minutes before slicing the bars. You will want to slice the bars when the chocolate is not super hard so that the chocolate does not break.  

Slice with a nice sharp knife and then store them for up to 2 weeks in your fridge! 

 

 

Full Recipe Breakdown 

  • PREP TIME:10 minutes 
  • TOTAL TIME:10 minutes 
  • DIET:Vegan 

 

Ingredients 

Crust 

  • 3 scoops of NB Pure Plant Protein+ 
  • 10 Medjool dates, pitted. If they are hard, soak them for 10 minutes. 
  • 9 graham crackers (sheets) 
  • 1 ½ TBSP of coconut oil 
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon 
  • 1/3 cup nut or seed butter (cashew, almond, peanut or sunbutter all work) 

Chocolate Layer 

  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips 
  • 1/3 cup nut or seed butter (cashew, almond, peanut or sunbutter all work) 

Topping 

  • 2 cups mini marshmallows 

 

Instructions 

  • Line an 8×8, 9×9 pan or 9x12 with parchment paper; set aside. 
  • Make the crust next. Use a food processor and add your pitted dates, graham crackers, nut butter, protein powder, and cinnamon together. Mix the ingredients together until they start to break down. Once that happens, add the coconut oil until the mixture becomes sticky like. It should stick together when you press it between your fingers. Transfer the mix to a parchment paper lined baking pan and then set it aside. 
  • Melt your chocolate next. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter together. Stir until it is smooth and fully melted. Then pour over the crust layer. Use a spatula to spread it out. 
  • Add marshmallows to the top of the chocolate layer while it’s still warm. After you’re done, place the pan in a freezer for about 20 minutes or the fridge for about 35 minutes. 
  • Broil option: to broil marshmallow topping, place pan on top rack in oven and set oven to broil at 400ºF. Carefully watch topping, broiling for about 1-3 minutes. Every oven is different so watch carefully. The safer option would be to use a cooking torch if you have one. Once marshmallows have browned, place pan back in fridge for about 30 minutes, or freezer for about 20 minutes, so chocolate can set. 
  • Once chocolate has set (not completely frozen) lift bars out of pan, placing on cutting surface. Use large sharp knife to cut bars into squares.
