I’m not even joking, when I gave these cookies to my mom and aunt, they were gone in an hour ha! Everyone who tried these s’mores stuffed cookies had a verryyyyyyy hard time at stopping with just one!

You’re going to feel like a kid by the campfire, except minus the stress of lighting the wood, and dealing with the mosquitos, and probably ruining your favorite white dress with melted chocolate (been there, it’s not fun).

No offense to my other vegan s’mores recipes, I love you all, but these cookies might be my favorite of vegan recipes with marshmallows!

These vegan cookies are so easy- they’re actually based off of my vegan chocolate chip cookies, so I thought naturally, let’s make them marshmallow stuffed cookies!

Perfect, right? 😉

Let’s get into the ingredients, and then I’ll show you how to make regular vegan chocolate chip cookies into marshmallow filled cookies!

Ingredients for vegan S’mores Stuffed Cookies

For these vegan marshmallow stuffed cookies, you’ll need:

  • Organic flour: you can definitely use your favorite 1-to-1 gluten free baking flour (I personally love Bob’s Red Mill’s gluten free baking flour!), but if you don’t have a gluten intolerance, go with an organic white flour!
  • Unsweetened applesauce: the trick to keeping these s’mores stuffed cookies gooey, soft, and oh so delicious. Unsweetened applesauce is the key replacement of both butter and eggs (coconut oil is also needed to replace the butter), and you’d be surprised at how well it works!
  • Coconut oil: you’d be surprised at how amazing coconut oil works with making vegan chocolate chip cookies. For these vegan s’mores cookies, I recommend letting the coconut oil sit near the oven while it preheats to ensure that it’s at room temperature. It should be solid, but soft, and definitely not melted! If you don’t like a coconut flavor, purchase refined coconut oil- that will be a more neutral taste and won’t detract from the chocolate chip cookie!
  • Coconut sugar: yep, these healthier s’mores cookies are refined sugar free! I just love the taste of coconut sugar, I feel like it gives an amazing caramelized flavor to these vegan s’mores cookies. Sometimes coconut sugar can get pricey though, so I recommend purchasing at Trader Joe’s!
  • Vanilla extract: definitely a must for making sure that your vegan chocolate chip cookies, which are the base of the cookie, taste amazing!
  • Chocolate chips: my favorite vegan chocolate chips are Lily’s Sweets Chocolate Chips, but you can use whatever you prefer! Pascha chocolate chips are also a great option because they’re completely sugar free, and Enjoy Life are Paleo friendly and vegan!
  • Marshmallows: yes, you can indeed find vegan marshmallows! This is one of my favorite vegan recipes with marshmallows, and they actually act just like regular marshmallows. I recommend using Dandies, those are the best vegan marshmallows that I’ve found. However, Trader Joe’s also has some vegan marshmallows (they may have white labelled Dandies because the two are so similar!).

Where to find vegan marshmallows?

Not all marshmallows are vegan, and in fact, most are made with either egg whites or gelatin.

If you are not strictly vegan, you can use whichever marshmallows you prefer, but for those who follow a strictly vegan diet, my personal favorites are Dandies and Trader Joe’s!

Smashmallow is another great brand, but they have mostly flavored vegan marshmallows, so it won’t be a classic “s’mores” taste.

I’ve found an abundance of vegan marshmallows at both Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, but if neither of those options are available to you, I recommend Amazon!

How to make healthy s’mores cookies from scratch

Now that we have the vegan marshmallows taken care of (it can be tricky sometimes!), let’s talk about how to make these decadent yet healthy marshmallow stuffed cookies!

Vegan chocolate chip cookie dough

First, begin by preheating the oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk together the flour, sea salt, and baking soda, and then set that bowl aside. Then add the coconut sugar, softened coconut oil, apple sauce, and vanilla extract to a medium bowl, and beat on medium with a hand mixer until completely mixed.

Then add your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients, and mix with a spoon until it becomes a sticky dough. Fold in the chocolate chips and add in an additional few tablespoons worth of unsweetened coconut milk until it resembles a standard cookie dough and all of the flour is absorbed.

Now we’re ready to make vegan marshmallow filled cookies!

How to fill the cookies with marshmallow

So I guess “stuffing” the cookies is a misnomer because what we’re really doing is splitting a serving of cookie dough in half (about 2 tablespoons worth) and placing a half of a marshmallow on top.

Then place the second half of the dough on top of the marshmallow and seal the edges around the marshmallow so that the marshmallow is completely encased in cookie dough.

Now you’re ready to bake!

What happens when you bake marshmallows?

Place the vegan s’mores cookies into the oven, and let the cookies bake for 7-9 minutes.

During the baking processor, the marshmallow will start to puff up right before they’re ready to remove from the oven. Don’t worry! The marshmallow will settle once removed from the oven.

When they’re done, remove them from the oven and let the cookies cool for 5-10 minutes. This part is crucial because you want the marshmallow to de-puff and become a gooey pull-apart center.

Then devour!

Can I reheat s’mores chocolate chip cookies?

Yes! I’ve found that if you place a s’mores chocolate chip cookies on a plate and into the microwave, you can heat it for 15 seconds, and the marshmallow becomes gooey again.

To store these cookies, simply put them in an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 5 days or in the fridge for up to a week!

I hope you love these vegan s’mores cookies as much as I do (and my other 10 taste testers ha!). They’re seriously a dreamy pillow of a cookie and just so dang easy and simple to make.
