S’mores pumpkin brownies:
Now who wouldn’t love the best of both worlds, s’mores + brownies combined? And I took it to the next level by making them pumpkin brownies versus regular brownies. But if pumpkin isn’t your jam, don’t worry just make regular brownies for this recipe.
Ingredients you will need:
- Graham crackers of choice, I used gluten free one’s
- Butter or coconut oil
- Eggs or flax eggs
- Tahini or any nut/seed butter you like
- Maple syrup or any type of sweetener you prefer
- Pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
- Pumpkin spice seasoning
- Vanilla extract
- Cacao powder
- Baking soda
- Mini chocolate chips of choice
- Mini marshmallows of choice
Time saving hack:
By now, you know I love making everything from scratch. But if you want to save some time, use your favorite boxed brownie mix for this recipe.
Making the graham cracker crust:
To make the graham cracker crust, add crackers too food processor and pulse until you get a fine consistency. But if you don’t have a food processor, you can crush them up in a back or blender too. Then add melted butter and mix. If the crust is too dry, add a bit of water or more butter to help bind it. And place in a lined 8×8 baking dish creating an even layer.
Prepping the brownie batter:
For the brownies mix the wet ingredients first. And then add in the dry ingredients and mix. Fold in the chocolate chips and pour over the graham cracker crust, creating an even layer. And bake 350°F for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. But if you are using a boxed brownie mix, follow instructions on the box.
Once the brownies are done baking, add a layer of mini marshmallows on top, and broil for a few minutes. But keep an eye on them so that the marshmallows do not burn. And once done sprinkle some additional crushed graham crackers on top, and let rest for at least 30 minutes.
I personally like to let mine cool completely before slicing into them or I let mine cool in refrigerator overnight and then slice. And when I am in the mood for one, I reheat in my convection oven for a few minutes or I will eat them cold.
I like to store mine in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.
