If you’ve never been a fan of s’mores, it’s because of the marshmallows, right? I just feel odd eating store bought marshmallows. They seem so weird and I don’t even want to think about all the unhealthy artificial ingredients. Using homemade marshmallows makes a world of difference! So whip up a batch of my healthier homemade marshmallows first and then make these cookie sandwiches. Which happen to be the most awesome cookie sandwiches ever.

The graham cookie is 100% whole grain and rolled in cinnamon sugar. Then you add a slice of homemade marshmallow between two cookies, and pour on some chocolate. And another bonus with this recipe is that you don’t need graham crackers!

I do love graham crackers but I didn’t bring any with me from the US and we don’t have anything similar over here in Germany. If I need something for a crust, I could use digestives (worst name for a cookie ever, right?) but it’s not the same. Anyone have a really great recipe for graham crackers?

I’m doing a guest post for Susan, the author of The S’mores Cookbook today. I got to meet her while I was in Austin last month for BlogHerFood ’13 and I’m so excited to have one of my recipes on her page! So head on over to Doughmesstic for my Healthier S’mores Cookie Sandwiches. :)

But before you go check out my recipe, I have to say: I was lucky enough to get a copy of Susan’s book and it’s gorgeous. There’s a picture for every single recipe, which I really love and the s’mores inspired recipes themselves sound delicious. There are cookies, cakes, pies, drinks and loads of other creative recipes I would have never thought of in a million years. I haven’t had a chance to make any yet but I will most definitely be doing that soon!

S’mores treats aren’t exactly the most healthy but you know what? You can totally make simple changes to the recipes if you want them to be a little more healthy. Use all white whole wheat flour, a little less sugar, homemade marshmallows. It’s simple! Or you can do what I’m doing and save these yummy recipes for a special occasion.

    Love me some smore’s and love all your health-i-fying. You totally motivate me to clean up our desserts. I love clean food but if it’s a treat, it’s a “treat”. So not true with you and I like it!

      Aww, what a nice comment. Thank you, Melissa! And I agreed that treats should be treats but the problem is when you feel like you *need* treats several times a day. Healthier treats = better then. :)

    Erin, these little graham cookie sandwiches look incredible! I know it must be tough to keep up with the food trends while remaining whole grain, but you do a great job! Thanks for sharing this recipe and giveaway.

    These look so good with the chocolate on top! Digestives is a bad name, but the ones with chocolate on the back are so good!! One of my favorite things about visiting England are those cookies!
