Low-Sugar S’mores

With Memorial Day over and July 4th just around the corner, the spirit of summer is running strong and a campfire with friends and family sounds like the perfect way to spend a summer evening. What goes better with campfires than S’mores? Don’t miss out on the fun because you have to watch your sugar intake – here is a low sugar version of traditional s’mores you can make at your next bonfire or in the comforts in your own home in your microwave like we did at Barix! For this recipe we bought Sugar-Free La-Nouba Marshmallows from NetNutrition , but you can use any sugar-free marshmallow or even a sugar-free Peep leftover from Easter!

Video Recipe Variation: We divided the marshmallow, chocolate, and graham crackers to make mini s’mores – they are cute and are less messy to eat compared to large s’mores!

One serving of this recipe contains 2 grams of added sugar from the graham crackers used in this recipe. Eating excessive amounts of sugar can result in dumping syndrome for those that have had bariatric surgery. This recipe also contains sugar alcohols which can cause a laxative effect if consumed in excess amounts. Please follow serving sizes suggested in this recipe and eat in moderation.
