The BEST Vegan S’more Brownies
Say hello to the dessert you never knew you needed. I am so excited to be heading into Autumn, ready for all of the scrumptious and cosy autumnal baking! It doest get better or more autumnal than s’mores. Brownies are one of my all time favourite desserts, and I thought they couldn’t get any better… turns out they can! You won’t want to miss baking these chocolaty, buttery and fluffy bars of deliciousness.
What is S’mores?
S’mores are a popular camp-fire treat, mainly in the USA and consist of graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows. For my recipe, I use vegan friendly digestive biscuits (as we don’t have graham crackers in the UK). I also used dairy-free chocolate and vegan marshmallows from Dandies to make this recipe vegan friendly.

How to make The BEST Vegan S’more Brownies
There are 3 super simple layers to these vegan s’more brownies: biscuit base, brownie and marshmallows.
Biscuit base : First thing is to make the buttery biscuit base. Blitz up the biscuits in a blender then add them to a bowl with melted dairy-free butter. Mix until like wet sand. Pour the crust into the prepared 8×8 inch square tin and use the bottom of a glass or something flat to pack the crust in tightly. Bake for 5 minutes.
Brownie : While the crust is baking, prepare the brownie batter. Whip the aquafaba and sugar together in a stand mixer with balloon whisk attachment. Whilst thats whipping, melt the dairy-free butter and chocolate together on the hob until fully melted. Pour the chocolate into the whipped aqaufaba, and fold in to combine. Sift in the flour and cocoa powder, then stir everything together into the most glorious brownie batter.
Fold in the chocolate chips and marshmallows. Pour the brownie over the crust, bake for 30-35 minutes.
Marshmallows : When brownie has baked, sprinkle over chocolate chips, then cover the entire top of the brownie with mini vegan marshmallows. Pop under the grill for a few minutes until the marshmallows toast and turn golden. Watch very carefully so they do not burn (they have a tendency to burn very quickly). Take out and allow to cool. Cut the brownie with a sharp knife and serve.
To help make these brownies as delicious and moreish as possible, I used some of my favourite vegan chocolate chips. I love Koro as these chocolate chips are perfect for baking, melt easily and leave you with ultra delicious, gooey brownies. Something special about these chocolate chips are that they are sweetened with Xylitol. They contain no-added sugar meaning they don’t make the brownies overly sweet, but rich and chocolaty!
I love Koro and am so happy to have come across their company. They are an online store with lots of different vegan baking, food and snack items such as jams, chocolate, vanilla pods, apple sauces, to rice, dried fruit, buts and sauces! I highly recommend you checking them out. I have linked to the website here.
Thank you to Koro for collaborating with me on this recipe. Check out our previous recipes here (they are all ridiculously tasty!!!).
If you read the ingredients and had a panic that you can’t find ingredients where you live, no worries, i’ve jotted down some variations for you to try!
Biscuits : If you can find graham crackers, you win at life! If you’re like me and only have plain digestives to hand, they are a great alternative. If you wanted to be extra and add more flavour to the brownies, you could use your favourite biscuit for the base such as Biscoff biscuits or Oreos.
Brownie : To make the brownie as gooey as possible, you’ll want to use aquafaba. This acts like egg whites, in the sense it adds lost of moisture to the brownie and helps with the glossy, crinkly top. You’ll want to add in cocoa powder( you can use hot chocolate powder too, which is also very taste). You can use dark chocolate or milk chocolate but I would personally stick to dark as it creates for a richer, denser flavour.
Marshmallow Layer: If vegan marshmallows are hard to come by where you are, then you can always make a homemade meringue top of the brownies. Alternatively, you can use a vegan marshmallow fluff. I would definitely try to hunt down vegan marshmallows though as it makes the dessert taste like a classic and authentic s’more. Some vegan marshmallow brands include: Dandies, Free From Fellows, Plant Kitchen.
