Delicious and Healthy S’mores Protein Cake Bars

S’mores Protein Cake Bars, perfect for National S’mores Day.

There are many variations to this gooey delight. The first s’more recipe was created in the 1920’s and can be found in the book of recipes published by the Campfire Marshmallows Company. The original recipe for S’mores consists of a roasted marshmallow with a layer of chocolate bar sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker.

We of course had to create our own healthier version,

    so 2 things- 1 I had no idea there was a smores protein powder! I need to find some for myself to try. and 2- I LOVE how easy it is to make this recipe vegan, so that’s a huge selling point for me. and thirdly they look so amazing I want to reach through my screen to eat one.

    There’s a S’mores protein powder? These look very tasty and I find it very interesting that you were able to find a way to implement healthy ingredients into a rather, usually, sugary treat.

  • MiamiGirlFoodie

  • Joanna

    Posted 2018-09-26 4:07 am

    This sounds like a great recipe. I do love smores and even better if instead of adding up on the calories these bars have a high amount of protein.

  • Maria Sigrid Lo

    Beautifully made! Why do you have stevia + sugar + vanilla? Are not they all for sweet test? I did not know that we can buy stevia. Thank for this very informative article
