The Best Grain-Free S’mores Blondies (With Gut-Healing Marshmallows!)

breakfastdessertgrain freesnack

Don’t tell my dad, but I’m actually not a huge fan of camping. I love the outdoors—but I’d rather take a long hike that ends in a hot shower and a comfy bed than have to wrestle a tent open. While I am a huge fan of a campfire, they’re in short supply at Airbnbs, hotels, and our tiny Brooklyn apartment—but these grain-free s’mores blondies let you have the full campfire experience, no wood required.

While these grain-free s’mores blondies look incredibly decadent and perhaps even difficult, let me assure you that they are not. In fact, you need just a few simple ingredients and basically no baking skills (I promise!) to create a recipe that will impress everyone you know. I love making these during the summer (they’re so good for cookouts and picnics!) and in cooler weather, when you can cozy up with them for the best hygge vibes.

What makes these blondies healthy?

Like many of my desserts, these blondies rely on whole food ingredients to create a sweet that doesn’t spike and crash your blood sugar (which leads to a chain of negative hormonal effects). These are rich in protein due to the almond flour and pasture-raised eggs. You can also make them even healthier by using the gut-healing marshmallows from my cookbook (or you can use any store-bought mallows!).

What makes something taste like graham cracker?

I’m honestly really proud of cracking the graham cracker code. There are two key ingredients that give graham crackers their distinct flavor—cinnamon and molasses. They both also offer distinct health benefits. Cinnamon is famous for its metabolism-supporting benefits, and blackstrap molasses is incredibly rich in minerals, especially iron. My friend Sarah from My New Roots has a great post detailing the many benefits of molasses, if you’d like to read more!

    Loved this recipe!! Didn’t have any mallow issues but kept it on a lower rack during the broil stage…

  2. Dana says:

    This has the potential to be great. I didn’t have a 9×9 pan so had to use 8×8. It was really full. I think next time I’ll do it in a 9×13 and opt for a little smaller blondies. I don’t *love* the molasses taste here (although I love molasses). My marshmallows started burning after 1 min to watch closely as Liz recommends. 😉 Love following you on IG!
