These healthy chocolate chips s’mores cookies will definitely have you asking for ‘some more’ (pun intended). They are a delicious combination of hot chocolate and those soft and caramelized marshmallows. It is also grain-free, gluten-free and can be made paleo and keto.
What goes better together than chocolate and marshmallows? Nothing compares to that campfire-roasted, perfectly toasted marshmallow that makes the chocolate melt perfectly into the crunchy graham crackers or even better, Cookies. That’s what it’s like biting into one of these delicious s’mores cookies (except without the marshmallow getting all over everything, you know what I’m talking about!).
Now I know this may seem more like a summer snack, but trust me when I tell you that these will be a big hit at any holiday party. You’ll have them singing “marshmallows roasting on an open fire..” instead of chestnuts because these cookies are just too good.
Why I love these Grain-Free Chocolate Chip S’mores Cookies
I’m normally not a big marshmallow fan, think chubby bunny challenge. I will pass.
However, s’mores and hot chocolate topped with marshmallows are the exception. There’s just something about how they melt together with the chocolate. These Chocolate Chip S’mores cookies are the best of both worlds.
The marshmallow gets caramelized after baking in the oven. It gets a little sticky and crispy.

You will need:
- Almond Flour
- Almond Butter
- Coconut Oil
- Coconut Sugar
- Baking soda
- Chocolate Chips
- Marshmallows (The ones I used here are not paleo, but I found these Paleo Version from one of my favorite bloggers, Laura.)
I use these ingredients almost exclusively for all of my paleo baking. If you’re curious as to why these ingredients are paleo-friendly and provide health benefits, you can check out my post on Paleo White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies here. This post explains why substituting ingredients like almond flour and coconut sugar in my baking is better than the standard refined sugar and white flour ingredients used in baking.

How to Make One Bowl Healthy S’mores Cookies

How to Serve these Paleo S’mores Chocolate Chip Cookies
I know what you’re thinking, how else would I serve cookies? With a glass of milk, duh!
Personally, I like to wash these down with an ice-cold glass of almond milk, but I also like to keep some frozen and crumble them top of ice cream or yogurt… you get that rocky road vibe. If that’s your thing, I suggest doubling this recipe and just keeping a stash in the freezer, you won’t be disappointed!
Have Fun with These S’mores Cookies
Have you ever used a different kind of candy in place of the traditional chocolate piece? I loved putting peanut butter cups on the graham cracker with the roasted marshmallow. If you haven’t tried this, you need to! You can thank me later…
You can do the same thing with these cookies. Want to put something other than chocolate chips on there? Go ahead! You could use peanut butter cups, nuts, or any other topping that you like.
