On Sunday, I mentioned how I was going to be sharing a mini-series of delicious, no-bake recipes all made in a muffin tin. Today is the second installment, and perfect for all the forthcoming outdoor entertaining, activities or well….4th of July par-tays!

So what is my offering? 

Healthy No Bake S’mores cups.

For such a simple recipe, this took a TON of trials to come up with a paleo option. While MOST of them were generally straight forward and relatively easy, their final results were NOT what I was expecting.

I’d been meaning to play around with a few paleo friendly marshmallow recipes I’d seen on the interwebs. After buying the necessary ingredients and spending time in the kitchen, I was generally disappointed with the end product. The ‘marshmallows’ either looked like soap, tasted like stevia or looked like a bathtub had erupted in my sink. 

If at first you don’t succeed, you give up.

Just kidding.

If at first you don’t succeed, to try several other recipes……until you finally see success and toast a (non-paleo) marshmallow with gusto.

So let’s just summarise what was mentioned earlier- I’d trialled it out with several options until I hit the perfect paleo marshmallow (well really, the only one which worked)

For those with NO dietary restrictions, it’s an easy 4 ingredient recipe- Chocolate, coconut oil, marshmallows and graham crackers.

For my VEGAN and GLUTEN FREE friends- Use a dairy free chocolate, use these marshmallows and use my faux graham cracker substitute, these grain free cookies. Alternatively, I LOVE these store bought ones too. 

For my PALEO friends- Use dairy free or unsweetened baking chocolate, coconut oil and these grain free cookies. For the marshmallow part, this is the only recipe I’ve had success with in both working with this recipe, and also resembling a marshmallow. Any other alternatives, do at your own risk. 

HACK! If you do opt for the paleo option, enjoy them fresh and on the day you make them. The longer you keep them, the more congealed the ‘marshmallows’ become. I even tried it out of the freezer and was disappointed.

  1. So I was just picking up some marshmallows at the store the other day, and they have all of these fun summer flavors right now. Like toasted coconut marshmallows. Think how good that would be on a smore! It sounds way better than a toasted soap marshmallow. I mean, soap would be ok…but toasted? No thanks. Hah! You’re either a trooper for sticking with this one to the end…or you’re just plain cray-cray. But the result looks awesome! 🙂

  2. I bet you could use mini marshmallows instead of cutting big ones. I’m really lazy so that is what I would do banana
    This inspires me to make s’mores ice cream tonight 🙂

  3. Big high fives for conquering the vegan/paleo s’mores beast! I bet it was no easy feat! Can you just imagine the deliciousness that would ensue if we turned these s’mores cups into actual s’mores?? With more marshmallow, graham, and chocolate? Like a s’more within a s’more? My mind is going crazy over these. Can’t wait to see the next installment of your no-bake muffin tray treat series!

  4. Constantly amazed by the magic you work in your kitchen. Like, these LOOK like they should be in the dessert section of a butter-laden Paula Dean cookbook, but voila!! Paleo and vegan. Teach me your ways!

    Also, on a small side note, “if you don’t at first succeed, give up” it actually one of my family’s favorite quotes to use hahaha.

  5. Gonna add marshmallows to my shopping list. I was obsessed with s’mores anything last summer. This is the next one on my wanna mix into ice cream list. Tomorrow I’ll do it!

  6. Catching up on some blog reading and was very excited to see these. I heart smores, particularly in the summahhhh!
