Healthy Gooey S'mores Cookie Bars

The best summer treat just became a cookie with these Healthy Gooey S'mores Cookie Bars! Chocolate chip cookie dough is infused with graham cracker flour and extra sea salt then baked with mini marshmallows and extra chocolate chips.













  • ½ C unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • ½ C brown sugar
  • ½ C Stevia
  • 1 large egg (room temperature)
  • ½ Tbsp vanilla
  • 3½ graham crackers
  • 1 C all-purpose flour
  • ¼ C vanilla protein powder (or more flour)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ⅔ C mini marshmallows
  • ½ C chocolate chips, divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease an 8x8 baking pan.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add in the egg and vanilla, mixing until smooth.
  3. Add the graham crackers to a food processor or high-speed blender and pulse until you're left with a "graham cracker flour" (or really fine crumbs). You should have about ½ cup of graham cracker flour. In a medium bowl, whisk together the graham cracker flour with the all-purpose flour, protein powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt until well combined.
  4. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined (there should be a few streaks of flour remaining). Fold in ⅓ cup of the chocolate chips.
  5. Press ⅔ of the cookie dough into the bottom of the prepared 8x8 pan and pack firmly in an even layer. Sprinkle the marshmallows on top and press each marshmallow slightly into the dough to adhere. Crumble the remaining cookie dough in your fingers and place in between the marshmallows.
  6. Bake the S'mores Cookie Bars for 15 minutes, then remove from the oven. Gently press the remaining chocolate chips into the cracks and crevices of the risen cookie dough, then bake for another 7 minutes in the oven. Allow the bars to completely cool in the pan before slicing and serving.
