Smores…

Happy 4th of July to all of my U.S. readers!  My kids love this holiday mostly because it kicks off our unofficial start to summer as most of their sporting activities are winding down which means we have a lot more time to spend up north at our cabin.  While the kids love a variety of lake activities; skiing, kayaking, swimming, etc… one thing they really look forward to are the campfires.  We love sitting around the fire at the end of the day and every now and again I like to surprise the kids with s’mores.  I wanted to find a way to create a healthy version of this traditional American campfire fare so I set out to find the perfect combination.  After a few attempts I finally found one that is delicious and that the kids love…the best part is that it’s EASY!

First, start with a campfire…

Next, pull out the ingredients…graham crackers (I use THIS recipe which is MUCH healthier than the packaged variety), sugar-free chocolate (my favorite chocolate bar is the Simply Lite Dark Chocolate bar from Trader Joe’s), and sugar-free marshmallows (this particular brand is gluten free also):

Roast the marshmallows and assemble a pile of yummy goodness…enjoy!!

    Those look wonderful….I wish we could eat that but we gave up everything bbq related once we found out that charred food is carcenogenic :(

    Yay! We CAN roast marshmallows after all. I was afraid this tradition was gone for us. Thanks Jamie!
