Happy National S’mores Day!!
I decided to celebrate with a recipe I shared a couple years ago that I’ve been wanting to make recently with the girls. I planned to share another bread recipe but I wasn’t happen with how the photograph turned out and since I didn’t have time to whip up another one, the ONLY downside to sourdough you can’t speed it up, before camping I thought it was the perfect recipe to share again.
Happy Memorial Day, Monday, and unofficial official start of summer! Since summer means s’mores I thought it was the perfect time to share my Gluten Free Vegan S’mores Pop Tarts that you’ve been asking for since I shared my “failed” attempt on Instagram Stories. A fail in my eyes because they puffed up and exploded but so many of you sent messages saying they looked amazing and you’d eat them. I let go of what I had envisioned and perfected the crust and yet they still cracked open which I was against at first but deflated after AND the texture is perfect. So ooey gooey good I know you’ll love these as much as my family does!
We’re serious s’mores fans over here. I’m always trying to play with the flavors but the family is usually classics first and then flavor fun. They always want me to make s’mores flavored desserts. I even made my brother a jumbo giant size, using 16×16″ homemade graham crackers on the top and bottom with a cake in the middle covered in marshmallow fluff that I toasted and a few BIG chocolate bars. His birthday is in the middle of July and it was fitting since we were going to be up north with the family that year.
Since my husband is a big s’mores fan I wanted to make S’mores Pop Tarts and when I posted the “fail” the messages rolled in so I couldn’t drop it or push it out. Sharing on Instagram Stories last week a day in the kitchen testing and even driving samples to have them taste tested in the middle of the day so I could get it photographed and to YOU since my followers wanted it and requested it I did my best to make it happen. Not going to lie the family really had no problem eating them all.
The only “issue” once I perfected it was weather or not to top them. Mr. Whisk and S wanted chocolate ganache on top. I thought they were sweet enough and how can you take it with you if it’s got chocolate on top? And who makes a s’more and then dips it in chocolate? Not that there is anything wrong with it, sounds good but really is it needed? Plus it’s breakfast, or snack, or well even can be made into a S’mores Pop Tart Sundae. Hey just saying, we may or may not have tried it.
So chocolate on top? I’ll leave that up to YOU! You do what you want and eat them when you want.
Yes they taste like an indulging treat, and are a treat, but they are made with some pretty healthy ingredients like flax seed, coconut oil, coconut sugar, and fiber and protein packed buckwheat. Despite the name buckwheat is gluten free. I also like to use a good quality dark chocolate. Our favorites are Enjoy Like and Hu Chocolate, both dairy free and vegan.
Funny thing is it was easier than I thought using my Camp Cracker (Graham Cracker) recipe I’ve tweaked over the years always trying to make a little better. One of those duh why didn’t I think of tha before I tried to tweak the other recipe I was trying to perfect for this one. The other one being one I posted on Instagram that is also paleo but made it too crispy and the marshmallows blew through.
Since you’re already making them I kept the recipe size as is and bigger than other pop tart recipes. The recipe as is makes 12-13 Gluten Free Vegan S’mores Pop Tarts. If you don’t want that many you can make how many you want just adjusting the recipe using 1 marshmallow per Pop Tart and reducing the amount of chocolate. Then use the remaining dough to make Gluten Free Vegan Graham Crackers, aka Camp Crackers. They freeze well and you can pull them out the next time you make s’mores, or just eat them. I haven’t tried freezing the pop tarts yet as they disappeared but that would also be an option and I would just recommend baking, letting them cool, and reheating as needed. I will update the recipe and post once I’m able to test it. I just didn’t want to leave everyone hanging.
So ooey gooey good I know you’ll love these as much as my family does!
