-Vegan Smores Brownies-

Sharing is caring!

Vegan Smores Brownies, need I say more? That combo doesn’t get much better than that unless you don’t like chocolate. Then I have few words that can help that situation.

Shockingly I am not a huge fan of smores themselves, but love smores desserts, is that weird?

I like traditional smores about once a year. But these smores brownies or these smores bars need to happen more than once a year.

These are simple to make and come together quickly. The wait time for these babies are in the baking and letting them cool so they don’t fall apart before inhaling.

These bad boys are rich I would be impressed if you can get through more than a square.

We enjoy these by themselves or with ice cream. Vanilla cashew ice cream brings these to another level of dreaminess.

I’ve gotten so caught up in telling you how delicious I haven’t even mentioned how this dessert is layered.

You start with a buttery graham cracker layer, then go to a brownie layer, topped with marshmallows that get caramelized on the edges.

What do you need for these vegan smores brownies?

  • graham crackers
  • vegan butter
  • flax eggs (2 TB flax meal + 4 TB water)
  • oil
  • vegan chocolate chips
  • instant coffee
  • cocoa powder
  • vanilla extract
  • brown sugar
  • vegan milk
  • flour
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • chocolate chips
  • Dandies mini vegan marshmallows

How do you make them?

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and preparing your 8×8 square pan with either foil or parchment paper with a bit of a hangover so you can remove from the pan easily, spray with cooking spray, set aside.

Make your flax egg by grinding flax meal, measuring 2 TB and mix with 4 TB of water, stir and set aside.

Now take a medium bowl and melt your 3 TB vegan butter in the microwave. Take your graham crackers and crumble them until they are just crumbs.

Mix the crumbs and the melted vegan butter until combined.

Now grab your prepared 8×8 pan and pour the buttery crumbs in and spread until even, grab a spatula and press the crumbs into the bottom until it’s fairly firm.

Cook the crust in the preheated oven for 5 minutes, then remove and set aside.

Start on your brownies.

Mix your flour, baking powder, salt, together and set aside.

In a microwave-safe glass bowl mix your oil with 1 cup of the chocolate chips, stir. Put in the Microwave for 30 seconds. Whisk for 10 seconds. Put back in the microwave for 30 seconds Whisk. And set aside. Make sure you don’t seize the chocolate.

Take your melted chocolate and whisk in the instant coffee, cocoa powder, brown sugar, vanilla, 2 TB vegan milk, and Flax Eggs.

Stir this until combined well. Now add the flour mixture into the chocolate one until combined. Then stir in your 1/2 cup chocolate chips and stir.

Carefully take your brownie mixture and spread it evenly onto the graham crust being careful not to move the graham crust (this is why it’s important to have a firmly pressed crust), now add the vegan marshmallows evenly over the top, lightly pressing into the brownies.

Bake this for 35-40 minutes. The edges will be slightly firm.

Let this cool for a few hours before cutting.

These are a bit crumbly but SO delicious! Amazing served with vegan ice cream!

I¡¦m not positive where you are getting your information, however good topic. I needs to spend some time learning much more or working out more. Thanks for excellent info I used to be searching for this information for my mission.

I made it last night! The main difficulty was spreading the brownie part over the pressed graham part, as the brownie part was somewhat sticky, almost like a soft rubber - is it supposed to be like that? Taste is great. How do you suggest keeping it, to eat over a few days? Counter top or fridge? Covered or uncovered? I left it covered on the counter and ate some in the morning. Bottom was somewhat crumbly in the morning. Son (6 yo) ate 3 pieces by the time I woke up :).

Hi Luliana! Thanks so much for trying them! Yes, I agree it’s hard to spread the brownie. The only way I found was the really compress the graham cracker crust the best a could and then evenly plop the brownie batter the best I could. I did try it one time with pre baking the crust, which makes it easier to spread but I didn’t like how much the crust cooked. The brownie batter texture is sticky like that pre baked. I kept it on the counter covered with Saran Wrap. It’s a bit of a messy dessert, but it’s so tasty! My kids enjoyed them as well! Thanks again for making them! ❤️

I want to try these! A sleeve of graham crackers... what dimensions is that? Wondering if my sleeve is the same size as your sleeve :)

That’s a great question! 10 full graham crackers is 1 sleeve. Thanks for asking! ❤️

What if you don't have instant coffee or want to omit it? Do I need to make up for it with extra of something else?
