Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • Seriously loaded gluten-free and vegan brownies: Just because you have some dietary restrictions doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorites! Not only are these s’mores brownies vegan and GF, but they’re also incredibly rich and decadent. 
  • So easy to make: You don’t have to worry about spending hours on these either. Once you have the correct ingredients, they’re just as straightforward as any other brownie recipe.
  • A great option for parties: I love making these for parties because they don’t have any dairy or gluten, and can easily be made nut-free too. That means everyone can try them, no matter their diet!

Ingredients and Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for this S’Mores Brownies recipe. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

Almond Flour: You can also use brown rice flour instead if you’d like. I have not tested this recipe with any other flour substitutes.

Coconut Sugar: I’m a huge fan of coconut sugar — it’s more wholesome than granulated sugar and boasts an almost caramel-like taste that works so well in these s’mores brownies. You could sub in cane sugar, brown sugar, or even monk fruit if you’d like.

Ground Flaxseed Meal: These are vegan too which means no eggs! I use ground flaxseed as a binder instead. 

Almond Butter: Adds richness and fat without the need for too much excess oil. If you don’t like almond, you can use your favorite nut butter — think peanut butter, cashew butter, or sunflower seed butter for a nut-free option.

S’Mores Topping: All of the classics, but vegan! Vegan marshmallows, vegan chocolate chips, and crushed graham crackers come together to form the ooey, gooey s’more brownies topping.

How to Make S’Mores Brownies

Recipe & dry ingredients prep

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Add the almond flour, coconut sugar, flaxseed meal, and some salt to a medium bowl, mix, and set aside.

Combine the wet ingredients

Place the almond milk in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Pour over your chocolate chips and stir until melted. Add the almond butter, milk, melted chocolate, and vanilla to a separate bowl. Mix until well combined.

Incorporate & assemble

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix with a spatula. Press the batter into your prepared baking pan. Top your s mores brownies with the vegan marshmallows, then the crushed graham crackers, followed by more chocolate chips.

Bake

Transfer the pan to the oven and bake the s’mores brownies for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow the brownies to cool for about 20-30 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks

  • A silicone spatula is really helpful here: I usually use a silicone spatula when incorporating the ingredients — it’s great for scraping down the sides of the bowl and ensures everything is well combined without over-mixing. Plus, it makes spreading the batter into the pan a lot easier!
  • Add the toppings in layers: I start with the marshmallows, then add the graham crackers, and finally the chocolate chips. I find that adding the fun toppings in intentional layers means that you get a little bit of something in every single bite.
  • Let them cool for cleaner cuts: I know it’s going to be really hard to wait to dig into these treats before letting them cool… but trust me, it’s worth the wait! You need to let the s mores brownies cool to almost room temperature for the cleanest cuts.

How to Serve and Store S Mores Brownies

Serve your s’mores brownies as soon as they’re cool enough to slice while the marshmallows are still gooey and the chocolate chips melty. 

You can store leftovers at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 or so days. They’ll keep their fudgy texture best at room temp, but keep in mind that the graham crackers may soften a bit over time. 

For longer storage, pop these babies in the fridge! They’ll keep in an airtight container for up to 1 week. To reheat, you can use your microwave, or your oven if you want the outside to crisp up a little.

Taste and Texture

S’more brownies are basically like homemade s’mores loaded up with chocolate. The brownie base is gooey and fudgy, and the topping is sweet, melty, and chewy in its own right. The vegan marshmallows get really melted in the oven and the edges get nice and crispy, almost like a meringue texture. 

They’re rich thanks to the melted chocolate chips right in the batter, and have a very light nutty undertone — it makes sense as we’re using almond flour, almond butter, and almond milk. The coconut sugar adds a hint of caramel. YUM.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why aren’t my brownies fudgy?

First, remember not to overmix that batter, as overmixing can lead to much denser results. Another reason could be that you overbaked the brownies. Check on them around the 40-minute mark. Insert a toothpick into the center — if it comes out clean or with a few crumbs, they’re done!

Why are my brownies falling apart?

You probably didn’t use enough flaxseed meal. Because these s’more brownies are vegan, it’s really one of the only things that binds all of the ingredients together. Make sure to use exactly ⅓ cup — no more, no less.

Can I make this recipe without nut or seed butter?

If you don’t have any nut or seed butter on hand and can’t run out to the store, you can use a puréed banana or mashed avocado instead! Start with half a banana or half an avocado, then add more if needed.
