If any of you have been paying attention, or know me, you know, I hate summer. Enough about the bad things though, here is something I felt like I needed to lay on you before summer was over. I have a million ideas for Fall and Winter flavors, but summer is a hard one for me. What is more quintessential in the summer than s’mores, though? Nothing.
I have been toying with other s’mores flavored items since Trader joes made my life more amazing, by presenting everyone with their vegan marshmallows. They are delicious and about half the price of other brands! Also, I love oatmeal cookies. My dad used to get use the little debbie oatmeal pies and all was right in the world when I shoved one of those in my mouth! This is a very similar flavor, with a summer time twist.
These are so simple, you are really just throwing stuff together, baking (a little under done) slapping some marshmallows on top, broiling, topping with chocolate. Easy, quick, amazing!
They are soft, not too sweet, just right, can’t eat just one! You don’t have to feel guilty with my plant based deliciousness. So, go ahead, eat a few!
