New Morning Graham Crackers, Oven S’Mores, and Giveaway
Posted Sep 06 2011 12:41pm
Let’s just start out by saying that, no matter what, S’mores are not healthy. There’s just no way around that fact, even if you were to make each separate item yourself from scratch with organic ingredients. Too much sugar, and not enough nourishing food.
However, I think we’ll all agree that we feel a lot less guilty about the whole thing if at least one component or the other is a healthier version. For example, dark chocolate, instead of highly processed milk chocolate. Or homemade or all-natural marshmallows instead of the usual.
Or healthy graham crackers made from all-natural, organic ingredients. Now that’s what I’m talking about! I recently had the opportunity to try out a variety of foods produced by the Attune Foods company, including their different lines of breakfast cereal (Erewhon, Uncle Sam and Skinners), their probiotic line (Attune) and of course, their New Morning Graham Crackers.
And when you have a box of graham crackers, what is there to do with it other than make S’mores? To me, there is no better use for graham crackers. So that is what we did! Of course, we have no grill, so instead I made mine in the oven, and they were just as good as any made over a bonfire. OK, well, almost. Good enough for a rainy day or a grill-less apartment-living person like myself.
We made these at home on several occasions just for ourselves, but I also brought the supplies to our Labor Day cook-out with my family. My cutie-patootie little niece (close in age to my Certain Little Someone) saw the S’mores and asked her mommy if she could have “Pillows and Crocodiles”.
Pillows = marshmallows.
Crocodiles = “crackers” in 2yo language
Pillows and Crocodiles
Place the graham cracker on a cookie sheet and top with chocolate chips. Heat in a 350F oven for a few minutes, or until chocolate begins to melt. Carefully spread chocolate evenly on the graham cracker, then top with marshmallow. Turn oven to broil, and return pan to oven for a few minutes, or until marshmallow is golden brown on top. Watch carefully, as they quickly go from browned to black!
