No Bake Smores Bars

If it’s chocolatey marshmallow and Graham cracker s’mores you crave, make a batch of these No-Bake S’mores Bars. We think they’re even better than the real thing because they contain all of the essential flavors of a classic toasty s’more – made healthy. Bonus: No campfire is needed to enjoy these delicious treats.

Rather than incorporate marshmallows (since those are made mostly of refined sugar) these sweet treats get their toasty marshmallow essence from a few drops of optional marshmallow flavor (pure vanilla extract is a good substitute). No extra sugar required for these s’mores bars, creamy Vanilla Shakeology mixed with ricotta makes up the white “marshmallow” cream, and Chocolate Shakeology forms the brownie-like base and crunchy chocolate topping. To top them them off, real whole wheat Graham crackers achieve a truly authentic taste.

Whether you whip up a batch as a part of your weekly meal prep or are just catering to your inner child, these s’mores bars one satisfying snack.
