No Bake S’mores Protein Cookies

So not only am I converting my favourite desserts into healthy oatmeal puddings, I seem to be doing them in snack form too. I can live with that. I also seem to have taken the No Bake Boy title to heart– and whipped out more in this genre.

After my success with using kettle corn in my no bake Kettle Corn Granola Bars, I wondered what else could be whipped into a flour like consistency and add the necessary flavour to other snacks.

Healthy No Bake S'MORES Cookies- Loaded with protein and secretly healthy, these soft and chewy cookies taste like dessert! {vegan, gluten free, dairy free recipe}-

 I love quest bars because not only do they have a solid dose of fiber and protein, but they actually taste like what they claim- and you know how I feel about false advertising. That is why with these cookies, they had to taste like an actual S’mores- minus the burnt tongue and sticky fingers….and a campfire.

You could be raising your eyes and thinking ‘How can they be healthy? They have marshmallows and chocolate chips in them!’. Well, build a campfire and jump into it bridge and get over it. These cookies tick the boxes in terms of nourishing carbohydrates from the oats, protein from the protein powder and a dose of those healthy fats thanks to the nut butter. Why not add something fun too? Thank you marshmallows and chocolate chips.


High in protein? Yep. High in fiber? Yep. Healthy fats and nourishing carbohydrates? Yep. Some fun add ins? You bet. You could probably call these a green vegetable and count it as part of your 5 a day…

Just kidding, we’re not a bunch of twats here. Just make them, eat them and dance around a (mock) campfire.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, oat bran, graham cracker crumbs, protein powder, natvia sweetener and salt. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the nut butter of choice and brown rice syrup and microwave for 2 minutes, or until melted.
  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry and mix until well combined. Add the milk then slowly incorporate the mini marshmallows, as they will start to melt.
  • Form into palm sized cookies and lay on a baking sheet or plate. Evenly top each cookie with chocolate chips and freeze for an hour or refrigerate for 4 hours/overnight.


* I used Dandie's vegan mini marshmallows
Avoid using a chocolate or cinnamon flavoured protein powder as it detracts from the s'mores taste.
Similarly, try to stick to a mild tasting nut butter like cashew or almond.
You can sub the brown rice syrup for honey (if not strictly vegan) or maple syrup, but add an extra 2 tablespoons.
Depending on the protein powder of choice, you may need more milk

Spill it, Sundays
will be continuing a Travel Recap theme so don’t forget to recap a travel experience or vacation and join the Sunday fun!

Have you ever made S’mores?

Have you ever tried the Jelly Bellys toasted marshmallow flavour? Hands down, the best.

  1. Oh em gee…you had me sold at the mere mention of ‘smores’- I’ll take 20 :)! It’s been forever since I made real s’mores i.e. with graham crackers, dark chocolate and marshmallows. However I did have a variation of s’mores last year at a restaurant- they brought mini fires to the table with caramel biscuits, green tea matcha white chocolate & marshmallows to roast over the fire. It was delicious and a fun dessert to see on a restaurant menu buuuut the the real deal is still the best!

  2. roasting marshmallows over a campfire + grabbing a slab of chocolate in the hopes that it will melt in between two graham crackers never really did anything for me. I’m going camping real soon and I’m totally bringing these boys to the yard with me 😛 I may or may not share though

  3. Toasted marshmallow jelly beans are okay but my favorite was always the tutti frutti…And, from the regular jelly beans, I always loved the black licorice which most people hate. It’s weird that I love them since I was always a picky eater.

  4. I have never had a smore… I am loving your dessert kick lately! Veg wise I try to get a lot in… between 7-10 a day. I had hardly any on holiday though unless cheese counts as a vegetable… Time to get those greens in 🙂

  5. “We’re not a bunch of twats” ahahahah ohhh how I’ve missed you! I’ve been craving s’mores like a crazy person but have been lacking a fire to make them over, so this is pretty much perfect. 🙂

  6. Vishnu and I love making open faced s’mores in the oven. I know – not the same as a campfire s’more but just as delicious! Love the idea of turning a classic into a cookie!

  7. How about I just dance wildly around the campfire? I’m a great dancer… After a few drinks mind you.

    I love that you captured the flavor of s’mores in a no bake cookie. You’re a genius or a mad scientist or maybe a little of both. It’s ok; you’re secret is safe with me.

  8. Just got back from a camping trip involving some serious s’more making business! These cookies are just what I need since I’m a little sad the trip is over….
    I totally forgot about the toasted marshmallow flavored jelly belly! Yummy! I actually live pretty close to the jelly belly factory and have been there! I may have to take a short road trip there soon!!!
    I think I eat more veggies in a day than an average person eats in a week!

  9. I have made s’mores in the past, but I haven’t yet this summer….but I’m going to a beach house with friends at the end of the month, so it’ll for sure happen then. As for veggies…I try to get in a serving or two with lunch and dinner.

  10. I’ve been going smores crazy with this pregnancy. We have a gas stove so I toast the marshmallow on that. I’ve also had the bad habit of microwaving marshmallows and then throwing everything in and stirring it up. I must be stopped! These look great though and much healthier than I’ve been going about it!

  11. Hahah you kill me. The build a campfire thing. Lolol.
    These look so good! My brother would LOVE LOVE LOVE them.
    Speaking of campfires, he wanted to have one with his friends last night. Mind you, it was literally pouring buckets of rain when he told my mom his friends were coming. He’s a great planner.

  12. Sneaking protein into sweets, especially cookies, is a huge talent. Cookies are one of those things that I can never just eat one, so I think upping the protein and making it out of these awesome ingredients (Hello, oat bran!) would make portion control much more doable 🙂 a little bit better than the traditional s’more (even though those are soooo delicious too and make me think of a bonfire with friends).

  13. Okkk I want these in my mouth right this instant. I love that they have graham cracker crumbs in them… also love that they actually have marshmallows and choc chips in them, but then again I can always trust you when it comes to combatting the false advertising crazies (duh).

  14. ‘How can they be healthy? They have marshmallows and chocolate chips in them!’ — actually i was just thinking ‘Horray! They have marshmallows and chocolate chips in them!’ these look awesome.

    and to continue the convo we’re having in different places at different times (omg its like the Lake House movie!) i might just be able to make that NYC meet up happen! (canada is harder)

    1. LOLOLOL This is the best. Okay, so I will legit try and make NYC happen (it depends on flights but I effing love NYC so want it to happen!) so I’ll keep you updated- mostly because I want to see if you really are 2cm tall. (Thank you, Meg’s blog).

  15. These look delicious!! When I was in Australia, I tasted their marshmellows and they were weird (no offense, maybe I just didn’t find the right brand), just not like the American marshmellows. I remember talking about s’mores with fellow Australians and explaining what they were. I did enjoy some on a short camping trip I took, but the American marshmellows make them better and can’t wait to try out this recipe as I still have yet to have a s’more this summer. Also I think my favorite s’more treat is having a s’more cupcake with the graham cracker crust on the bottom of the cupcake and a marshmellow frosting. Very delicious!!

  16. I love roasting marshmallows for S’mores. I end up eating one S’more…then just marshmallows. They are my favorite especially melty and burned.
    I try to incorporate vegetables into my diet because I really like them and they are so versatile. Any vegetable tastes great roasted with oil and salt. Even the most picky eater likes potato chips and that can essentially be done with any veggie. My diet contains TONS of hummus. Hummus = beans. Beans = vegetable. Awesome.

  17. Those look amazing but how do you not eat them all in one sitting? 🙂 That’s just dangerous. I love smores (ha spellcheck wanted to change that to “smokes”) and yes have made them. Special occasions. Right now I can’t even think about that since I haven’t worked out in what seems like a week because of a stupid cold. grrr!

  18. I haven’t had a s’more in so long, I need to get back on that train. They are AMAZZEE. I’ve been looking for a healthier s’more recipe and I think this one just happens to fit the bill 🙂

  19. Is it crazy that I’m not crazy about s’mores? I love chocolate, I like graham crackers, and I adore melty marshmallows, but for some reason I prefer to eat them separate. And speaking of roasted mallows… I think I ate my weight in those this weekend. I’m such a diva when it comes to roasting them, too. They have to be perfectly browned without the least bit of black, so that they’re toasty on the outside and melty on the inside. Omg want.

    1. Hey Felicity- I actually bought them from a USA grocery store in Melbourne- I have tried these with crushed scotch fingers and crushed ginger biscuits (standard Coles brand)- they definitely worked well but were quite sweet- You could try salada crackers if your protein powder is sweetened 🙂

  21. we didn’t even know each other this time last year, but you made these with ME in mind. I know. OH, and at Vida Vegan, the swag bags had SNEAK PEEK new flavor marshmallows – PUMPKIN. I am seriously making these tonight, some plain, some PUMPKIN. awwww daaaaaang.
