Skating S’mores (Healthy S’mores Recipe)

Aug 10 2014

Skating S'mores

Every skater, especially every young skater just falling in love with the sport asks, “Mom, can I skate s’more?”  (I know—I said this often!)  There’s something about finding your sport and passion that makes you always want to do it “s’more.”

Speaking of “s’mores,” today is National S’mores Day!   We’re sharing this original recipe by LiveKühn’s Rachel, an alternative recipe for healthy s’mores!  They make a great dessert (or snack), especially since we’ve reinvented the graham cracker portion so they’re healthier!

Our innovative new “graham” cracker crust of the s’mores contains peanut butter, almonds, and flax seed—all great sources of protein, fiber, vitamins E and B3, and minerals like calcium.  The other ingredient is honey, something ancient Olympians loved to eat (for good reason).  Studies have shown that honey can boost athletic performance because it maintains glycogen levels and improves recovery time.  This is the perfect summer dessert for athletes—specifically our LiveKühn skaters, skiers and snowboarders!

Here’s our fresh take on s’mores . . . “They’re better than s’mores!” (and healthier, too!)

  • 1/2 cup almonds (we used sliced almonds)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons flax seed
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1/8 cup oats
  • 15 large marshmallows (see below for a corn syrup-free recipe)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Put almonds in nut grinder, so they are ground into small(Alternatively, you can chop them until small).
  3. Combine almonds, peanut butter, flax seed, honey, and oats until thoroughly mixed.
  4. Press flat into the bottom of a 9”x5” loaf pan.
  5. (Optional: Place in Freezer for 3 minutes to help harden.)
  6. Bake for 20 minutes at 325 degrees, or until it becomes crisper.
  7. Remove from oven; while hot, sprinkle chocolate chips overtop as desired.
  8. Place the marshmallows on top of the cracker crust and chocolate
  9. Turn off the oven, then turn on the broiler and place the pan back in theKeep it in just long enough for the marshmallows to brown slightly.  This should take 2-4 minutes, so watch very closely.
  10. Let cool partially so it stays together.  Serve by cutting in squares.  When you cut a piece, the remaining cracker crust should be crumbled on top.
  11. Enjoy and celebrate National S’mores Day!  (Trust me, you’ll want s’more!)

Did you know?

Peanut Butter is also a rich source of copper, iron, and potassium, and almonds have high quantities of iron.  Flax seed contains Omega-3 fatty acids (“good” fats considered healthy) and includes Vitamins B1, B2, C, E, carotene, zinc and iron.  Honey is rich in vitamin C and many B vitamins.  However, read the peanut butter labels—they are not all equal nutritionally.
