Healthier S’mores Cookie Sandwiches + a giveaway!

These S’mores Cookies Sandwiches are made healthier with all whole wheat flour, less sugar and fat and homemade marshmallows. For the full recipe, check out my post on She’s Becoming Doughmesstic but be sure to check out the giveaway below before you leave! Healthier S'mores Cookie Sandwiches + a giveaway! | texanerin.com 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? Healthier S'mores Cookie Sandwiches and a giveaway! | texanerin.com 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.

    I recently found myself buying S’mores fixings to have on-hand… you know, in case a S’more craving strikes!

    I love that these don’t require actual graham crackers since I never have those on hand. And homemade marshmallows – YES! They changed my marshmallow world :)

    It’s impossible for me to fully describe my past with s’mores addiction without relapsing. It’s been 21 days since my last s’more, and I’m going strong. I combat s’mores cravings by staring into my belly flab as I walk past the candy aisle in the grocery store. I’m sharing my struggle with s’mores addiction with the world in hopes that I can reach out to just one other person who is currently stuffing marshmallows into their face with a graham cracker, and stifling sobs. Listen to me, YOU. It gets better. But it does not get more delicious.

      Bahaha. This is like… the best comment ever. I’ve read it four times. You left me a little story! And your tale of addiction. Thank you. Thank you SO much for sharing! We’re here to help. Hey, look… is that some strawberries I see? Why, yes. They are! Let’s go on over this way. We can eat some strawberries and get far, far away from here and these filthy no good s’mores!

    I’m new to this site and love how easy it is to search, print recipes and photos are spot on and also easy to print to attach to the recipe. I have gluten allergies and can appreciate very much that in your recipes the ingredients are items I already have on hand. Thank you!

      Aww, what a nice comment. Thank you so much, Lori! I’m happy that you found this site and thrilled that you can enjoy the gluten-free recipes I post. I don’t have any gluten allergies but really love baking with almond and coconut flour, which is why I often do grain-free recipes. I try to keep it half whole grain (which is what this blog was originally about) and half grain-free. So thanks for tolerating the whole grain posts that pop up sometimes. :) Again, welcome to the site and thanks again for saying hi!

    I don’t know why you don’t like marshmallows. Or at least the store-bought kind. I can’t eat them plain, but once they are ooey-gooey from the fire or the broiler I can eat like a million.

    These cookies do look absolutely fantastic though! :)
