S’more Brownies

Smore Brownies (4)

Want s’more fun with summer’s favorite trio of chocolate, graham cracker, and marshmallows? In addition to our s’more energy bites (which have all been gobbled up), we made these easy s’more brownies. Hint: the recipe starts with a mix!

Mix together one package of your favorite vegan brownie mix according to package directions. Spread half of the batter into the bottom of a 9×9-inch baking dish.

Top evenly with graham cracker pieces, then spread with the remaining batter.

Smore Brownies (2)

Sprinkle the top with Dandies mini marshmallows – the more the gooier! You’ll notice that Travis was too busy licking the batter from the bowl to help sprinkle on the marshmallows.

Smore Brownies (3)

Bake according to package directions.

If brownies aren’t your favorite, try this twist on the s’more trio:

Layer chocolate pudding, broken graham cracker pieces, and mini Dandies marshmallows in a glass. Repeat the layers, and top with a final layer of pudding. Refrigerate at least 4 hours (this will help the graham cracker pieces soften).

Summer Garden Zoodles

Summer Zoodles

Zoodles (zucchini noodles) can make ho-hum summer squash seem so much more fun. The addition of beans and almonds makes this version hearty enough to be a full meal – no cooking required! If you have a spiralizer, make your own zoodles from 1 large zucchini.

Ingredients:

For the pesto:

  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

For the zoodles:

  • 1 (12-ounce) package zoodles
  • 1 (15-ounce) drained and rinsed can cannellini beans
  • 1 cup halved yellow cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted almonds
  • 2 ounces crumbled creamy vegan cheese
  1. To prepare the pesto, combine the basil, cashews, and olive oil in a food processor; process until smooth.
  2. Combine the pesto in a large bowl with the remaining ingredients except the cheese, tossing to coat.
  3. Divide evenly among 4 plates. If desired, top each serving with cheese crumbles (we like the creamy cheeses from Treeline for this one).
