Homemade S’Mores that are HEALTHY and even GAPS-legal
Imagine that, eh?
The truth is, summer’s just not SUMMER without a gooey-sweet s’more in hand.
But… what to do if you are avoiding certain foods like wheat, refined sugar, corn syrup, and the like? Make your own!
Okay I will tell you these ARE a little more work, mainly because you have to make three different components.
But when you do make them – well, it was really nice to be able to have s’mores this last weekend at our annual family get-together and not have to cringe as I handed them to my kid. Or the other kids.
Or as I stuffed my own face!
My version of healthy, homemade s’mores include grain-free graham crackers, honey-sweetened dark chocolate and homemade honey marshmallows (which were SUPER fun to make).
If you are on a special diet… these are gluten-free, refined sugar free (honey only), grain-free, paleo, primal, and GAPS/SCD legal. Phew!
I will say that I’ve been experimenting lately with a lot of GAPS type (honey only, no grains or starches) dessert recipes and have been quite unimpressed with the results.
These were a little different, though.
They felt more like a s’more dessert for grown-ups rather than the sticky-sweet sandwich we usually think of them as. I actually ate mine with just one cracker on a plate using a fork. It was quite decadent.
Even my dad who is a HUGE skeptic of all this “weird food” I make sometimes loved them, even.
That’s a pretty big testimonial.
Oh yeah and the kids didn’t even NOTICE. Not just my kids, but my siblings’ kids too!
So, allow this to be a preview for you. And maybe for YOUR next get-together, you can put these together for yourself. And if you do ANYTHING, make the marshmallows. Seriously… they are way cool.
So… here’s the recipes:
