8 Healthy S’mores Recipes
This post may contain affiliate links. Click here to read my full disclosure.
If you’re unaware, every food that’s ever been created has its own national holiday now. And you know what? I’m not mad at it. So when a reader (thanks, Joanna) brought National S’mores Day to my attention, I thought it was only fitting I put together a compilation of my favorite healthy s’mores recipes.
My Staple Ingredients for Healthy S’mores Recipes
Before you get to all the recipes, here’s a shortlist of things you’ll need for just about every recipe.
- Graham Cracker Crumbs (whole graham crackers work fine in most cases)
- Dark Chocolate Chips or Mini Chocolate Chips (around 70 calories per tablespoon)
- Marshmallow Bits or Mini Marshmallows
- Vanilla Protein Powder (I use Vanilla Cupcake Dymatize 100% Whey in most of my recipes these days. I’m not affiliated with the company. The protein just works great for baking and tastes amazing. Not to mention, it’s super affordable. You can use any protein you’d like, though.)
Beyond these four ingredients, you probably have everything else on hand. A little almond milk or Greek yogurt here and a little stevia or coconut flour there, and you’re good to go.
The 8 Healthy S’mores Recipes
You’ll find the full recipe here within the post for each s’mores creation. Here’s the list of recipes in case you want to visit the original post for deeper dives on ingredients or modifications that might not be in the recipe card’s notes section:
- No Bake S’mores Protein Bites

If you try any of these healthy s’mores recipes, I wanna see your creations. Be sure to tag me on Instagram and I’ll share your creation with the world. Enjoy!
S’mores No Bake Protein Bites
Starting the list off with a bang, this is one of my favorite recipes on my blog. They have that perfect graham cracker flavor and bite with even more texture in nearly every bite thanks to the chocolate chips. And with only 100 calories each, you can probably get away with more than one.
Pro tip: double the recipe because you’ll be wanting more than just four.
No Bake S'mores Protein Bites
Quick and easy 100-calorie protein bites with all your favorite s'mores ingredients.
- 2 Tbsp (10g) Quick Oats
- 1/4 C (26g) Graham Cracker Crumbs or 1 large cracker, crumbled
- 1 1/2 scoop (45g) Protein Powder vanilla
- 1/2 Tbsp Stevia or 0-Calorie Sweetener
- 1/4 C (10g) Mini Marshmallows
- 1/2 Tbsp (7g) Chocolate Chips
- 2-3 Tbsp (30-45mL) Almond Milk or any low-cal liquid (start on the lower end and add as needed)
Line a small plate or dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
Mix dry ingredients together, adding marshmallows and chocolate chips last. Mix well.
Slowly add almond milk or liquid, stirring in gradually. You'll think you need more milk but aim for as little milk as possible. The mixture may almost look crumbly. That's ideal for forming into balls.
When the mixture is evenly mixed, form into balls using your hands and roll between your palms to smooth. If your mixture is too crumbly, add 1 tsp of liquid at a time. If it's too moist to form into balls, add more protein powder or oats. (If you double this recipe, which I recommend, you may want to rinse your hands half way through. The more balls you form, the more the other balls will stick to residue on your hands.)
This recipe makes 4 balls around the size of golf balls. Add balls to parchment paper and place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Store leftover balls in the freezer and thaw for 5-10 minutes before eating.

S’mores Protein Donuts
When I first published this recipe, I dubbed it the best protein donut on my blog. I’ve made a bunch of donuts since then, but I think this one is still up there in the rankings. For what it’s worth, it’s my girlfriend’s (the pickiest eater this side of the Mississippi) favorite.
S'mores Protein Donuts
Blend the beauty of s'mores and donuts with this low calorie cake donut recipe with 7 grams of protein and only 120 calories per donut. The recipe includes modifications for both lower calorie and higher protein versions. You can tweak these to fit any nutritional goal or needs.
- 3 Tbsp (21g) Coconut Flour
- 1/2 scoop (16g) Protein Powder vanilla
- 1/4 C (26g) Graham Cracker Crumbs or 2 large sheets, crushed
- 3/4 C (170g) Fat-Free Greek Yogurt plain or vanilla
- 3 Tbsp (46g) Liquid Egg Whites or white from 1 whole egg
- 3 Tbsp (45mL) Walden Farms Syrup or sticky sweetener
- 1/4 C (10g) Marshmallow Bits
- 1 1/2 Tbsp (21g) Dark Chocolate Chips
- 1/2-1 Tbsp Stevia or 0-Cal Sweetener to taste (if you use plain Greek yogurt)
- 2 Tbsp (28g) Dark Chocolate Chips
- 2 Tbsp (30mL) Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 2 Tbsp (5g) Marshmallow Bits optional
- 1 Tbsp (6g) Graham Cracker Crumbs optional
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and spray a donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Mix dry ingredients (except chocolate chips and marshmallow bits) in a medium-sized bowl. (If you're using plain Greek yogurt and want a sweeter donut, add stevia or sweetener here.)
Add Greek yogurt, egg whites, and Walden Farms syrup to dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
Add marshmallow bits and chocolate chips to batter and stir.
Using a large spoon or rubber spatula, transfer the mixture to your donut pan. Be sure to wipe away excess from the pan so the donuts don't connect during baking.
Bake for 23-25 minutes.
After baking, remove the donuts from the pan to cool on a plate or cooling rack. While donuts cool, microwave 2 tablespoons (28g) chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons almond milk for 20-30 seconds until melted. Stir chocolate until you have a smooth chocolate sauce.
Using a spoon, drizzle chocolate on top of your donuts before adding graham cracker crumbles and marshmallow bits should you choose.
- Per Donut (makes 6): 120 Calories | 7.2P | 14.8C | 3.5F
- Per Donut without any frosting/toppings: 94 Calories | 6.8P | 11.8C | 2.2F
- If you want more protein, you can add 1/2 scoop protein powder (16g) and 3 Tbsp (46g) liquid egg whites to the batter. Your macros here would be: 134 Calories | 10P | 15.2C | 3.7F per donut
- If you wanted to reduce the calories in your glaze/toppings, you could use something like my ultimate protein frosting or the fat-free cream cheese frosting used for my double chocolate protein donuts.
- If you’d like to leave protein powder out entirely, you could add 1 tablespoon of coconut flour to accommodate.
S’mores Protein Cake Bars
These cake bars are very similar to the protein donuts above, but in larger form and a bit more portable.
S'mores Protein Cake Bars
Lower calorie, higher protein s'mores cake bars with two topping options.
S'mores Cake Bars
- 2 scoops (64g) Protein Powder vanilla
- 1 C (112g) Coconut Flour
- 1 C (112g) Graham Cracker Crumbs or 8 crackers, crumbled
- 2 Tbsp Stevia or 0-Calorie Sweetener optional to taste
- 4 C (904g) Fat-Free Greek Yogurt vanilla or plain with 1 tsp vanilla extract added
- 2 large Eggs
- 1 1/2 C (368g) Liquid Egg Whites or 8 whole egg whites
- 1 C (244g) Unsweetened Apple Sauce
- 1 C (40g) Marshmallow Bits or mini marshmallows

Topping Option 2
- 1/4 C (10g) Marshmallow Bits optional
- 2 Tbsp (28g) Mini Chocolate Chips optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 13x9 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. (The batter will take every bit of space in the baking dish. Do not try to fit in a smaller dish. If you have a smaller dish, cut the recipe in half.)
Mix dry cake ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Add Greek yogurt, egg whites, whole eggs, and apple sauce. Stir until smooth like cake batter.
Gently fold marshmallow bits and chocolate chips into the batter.
Add batter to baking dish. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick or knife comes out of the cake's center clean.
For topping option 1, mix ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. For topping option 2, simply add the marshmallow bits and chocolate chips to the top of the cake.
Add your choice of toppings immediately after removing the cake from the oven. Give the cake time to cool before slicing into 20 bars. (One slice in the middle and 10 horizontal slices.)
- Per s'mores cake bar without toppings (recipe makes 20): 142 Calories | 11.2P | 16.3C | 3.6F

High Protein S’mores Mug Brownie
My love for mug cakes is strong. I even started a second blog, Mugs for Muscles, dedicated to microwave cooking. If you dig a good mug cake or brownie, here are a few of my favorites:
A quick note on the s’mores mug brownie: You may want to cut the recipe in half as the brownie is quite large as-is.
Microwavable S'mores Protein Brownie
A quick and easy protein brownie that's ready in under 5 minutes.
- 1 scoop (32g) Protein Powder vanilla
- 2 Tbsp (13g) Graham Cracker Crumbs
- 3/8 C (90g) Unsweetened Apple Sauce or 180g and omit pumpkin
- 3/8 C (90g) Canned Pumpkin or 180g and omit apple sauce
- 2 Tbsp (5g) Marshmallow Bits
- 1 Tbsp (14g) Chocolate Chips
- 1 tsp Swerve or 0-Calorie Sweetener optional
Mix ingredients in a bowl and microwave for 90-120 seconds.
Depending on the size of your bowl, you may have to finish the last 30-60 seconds in 10-15 second intervals to avoid overflow. (You can use the marshmallow bits and chocolate chips to fully cover the top of the brownie. This tends to "hold" the brownie down and limit overflow in smaller bowls, especially around the edges.)
If your brownie sticks to the bowl, you may try mixing the brownie in a bowl and transferring the batter to a separate bowl you've sprayed with nonstick cooking spray before going in the microwave.
Top with low-calorie ice cream, fat-free whipped topping, or other toppings of your choice.
- Entire Recipe: 340 Calories | 27P | 45C | 6F
- You can easily reduce calories and carbs by reducing the number of marshmallow bits and chocolate chips used. As you can see in the photos, the amount the recipes calls for is generous. I like my s'mores, mmkay?

S’moreos Protein Poppers
The real question is, when will we establish a National S’moreos Day?
S'moreos Protein Poppers
Bring the greatness of Oreos and S'mores together with these 34-calorie s'moreos protein poppers.
- 1 1/2 C (45g) Oreo O's crushed or blended
- 2 Tbsp (13g) Graham Cracker Crumbles
- 1 scoop (30-32g) Protein Powder vanilla
- 2 Tbsp (14g) Coconut Flour
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 C (227g) Fat-Free Greek Yogurt vanilla
- 3/8 C (92g) Liquid Egg Whites or 2 whole egg whites
- 2 Tbsp (30mL) Walden Farms Pancake Syrup or your choice of sticky sweetener
- 1/2 C (20g) Marshmallow Bits
- 2 Tbsp (28g) Dark Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and spray a 24-muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
Using a food processor, blender, or Ziploc bag, crush the Oreo O's cereal until you have a fine flour-like consistency.
Mix remaining dry ingredients and 3/4 of the marshmallow bits in a large mixing bowl. (save 1/4 of the marshmallow bits for topping)
Stir the egg whites, Greek yogurt, and Walden Farms Pancake Syrup (or your choice of sticky sweetener) into the mixture until smooth.
Gently fold your chocolate chips into the mixture.
Using a spoon, transfer the mixture into the muffin tin. Wipe away any excess from around the tin's edges and top with remaining marshmallow bits.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the poppers can pass the toothpick test.
Allow the poppers to cool briefly before removing from the tin. Store leftovers in an airtight container for 2-3 days.

- Per 4 poppers: 136 Calories | 10.8P | 17.6C | 2.4F
S’mores Protein Cookie Balls
In case you’re wondering, these taste even better than they look. And if you’d like a quicker version, check out this s’mores protein mug cookie.
S'mores Protein Cookie Balls
A high protein graham cracker cookie stuffed with melted chocolate and marshmallow.
Protein Cookie Balls Dough
- 1 Tbsp (14g) Dark Chocolate Chips
- 2-3 Tbsp (6-8g) Mini Marshmallows as needed
Preheat an oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl before adding in the butter and 2 tablespoons of the syrup. Since every protein powder is a bit different, you may not need all 3 tablespoons. You should be able to form a large ball of dough, so avoid over hydrating the dough.
Form a large ball of dough and divide it into 6 pieces and flatten each piece between your palms before transferring to the baking sheet.
Distribute the chocolate chips and mini marshmallows as evenly as possible in the center of each piece of dough. If you press down slightly, they'll stay in place when you're closing the cookie balls. (Also, marshmallow bits and mini chocolate chips may be easier to work with.)
Gently fold the pieces of dough around the marshmallows and chocolate chips and roll between your palms to smooth, if possible. (Spraying your hands with cooking spray will prevent sticking.)
Bake the cookie balls for 6 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack or plate to cool. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temp for 1-2 days.
- These protein cookie balls are best slightly undercooked. The 6-minute bake time seems to work perfectly, but your oven may be different. They should be solid enough to pick up but tender enough to easily break apart.
- Feel free to modify the amounts of chocolate and marshmallows to fit your needs. You could also make smaller cookie balls and have 12 instead of 6. This might be a good idea if you have lower calorie needs and need to control portions.
- The mini marshmallows will create a creamier filling than the marshmallow bits. Keep this in mind if substituting.
Healthy S’mores Pizookie
Despite its calorie count, this is actually one of the healthiest recipes on the list.
S'mores Protein Pizookie
A lower calorie, higher protein pizookie recipe.
- 3/4 C (180g) Canned Pumpkin
- 1/2 C (130g) Canned Chick Peas drained, rinsed, microwaved for 2 minutes, and re-rinsed
- 1 C (245g) Liquid Egg Whites
- 1/2 C (52g) Graham Cracker Crumbs or 3-4 large crackers, crumbled
- 1 scoop Protein Powder vanilla
- 3 Tbsp Stevia or 0-Cal Sweetener
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 Tbsp Chocolate Chips
- 2/3 C (30g) Mini Marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Blend all ingredients except chocolate chips and marshmallows in a food processor or something like a Nutribullet until smooth.
For the full pizookie effect, add mixture to a 10" cast iron skillet. If you don't have a cast iron skillet, you can use any oven-safe skillet or even a small baking dish. Cook times may vary with other dishes, however.
Add chocolate chips and half the marshmallows to the top of your pizookie. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick or knife come out clean. The marshmallows on top should be slightly charred but be careful not to burn the cookie.
Remove from the oven and cool for 10-15 minutes. Top with remaining marshmallows as well as chocolate syrup or ice cream if you desire.
Entire Pizookie: 812 Calories | 64P | 112C | 12F --- Entire Pizookie with 1/2 Pint Vanilla Halo Top: 992 Calories | 74P | 138C | 16F
S’mores Protein Pancakes
Don’t you hate it when protein pancakes are rubbery and dry? Yeah, me too. That’s why these are moist and borderline fluffy (as far as protein pancakes are concerned). Trust me, you’ll dig ’em.
Oh, and if you don’t want to use the evaporated milk, you could use Greek yogurt like I use in my easy chocolate protein pancakes recipe.
S'mores Protein Pancakes
Low calorie, high protein pancakes stuffed with real graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows. All covered in a high protein chocolate syrup.
S'mores Protein Pancakes
- 1 scoop (32g) Protein Powder vanilla
- 1/2 C (56g) Coconut Flour
- 1/2 C (56g) Graham Cracker Crumbs or 4 crackers, crushed
- 2 C (452g) Fat-Free Greek Yogurt plain
- 3/4 C (184g) Liquid Egg Whites or 4 whole egg whites
- 1/2 C (120mL) Walden Farms Pancake Syrup or low-cal sticky sweetener of your choice
- 1/2 C (20g) Marshmallow Bits or mini marshmallows, diced
- 1/4 C (56g) Mini Chocolate Chips
- 1-2 Tbsp (15-30mL) Almond Milk or Low-Cal Liquid as needed for batter consistency
- 1/2 C (120mL) Fat-Free Evaporated Milk
- 1 scoop (32g) Protein Powder vanilla
- 2 Tbsp (10g) Unsweetened Dark Cocoa Powder
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl before adding Greek yogurt, egg whites, and sticky sweetener (WF Pancake Syrup). Fold marshmallow bits and chocolate chips into the pancake batter last.
Heat a large skillet (or two if you're in a hurry) over medium-high heat with nonstick cooking spray.
Add your pancake batter to the heated pan(s). The batter should make 8 pancakes, around 5-6 inches in diameter. Portion accordingly. Cook for 3-5 minutes per side or until the bottoms are golden brown. At that point, flip and cook for an addition 1-2 minutes.
After you've prepared your pancakes, plate them and begin mixing your chocolate syrup.
For the syrup, mix evaporated milk, protein, and cocoa powder in a small bowl. If you'd like your chocolate syrup to be more like frosting, reduce the amount of evaporated milk to 1/4 C or 60mL.
Optional toppings: chocolate chips, marshmallow bits, or more syrup. Enjoy!
