My niece Lexi’s children, Sia and George, visit my house often in the summer because they love to swim! I alway enjoy hosting tons of summer activities at my home. The one thing that can be slightly difficult is that both of the kids are gluten-free. My home is no stranger to gluten-free options. However, I don’t always have gluten-free snacks on hand, especially snacks that the kids will enjoy. Today I made homemade gluten-free graham crackers to make s’mores! This is the perfect summer treat and activity and it won’t upset their little stomachs.
Graham crackers happen to be one of my personal favorite snacks. They are light and crunchy, and have a real honey flavor that pairs perfectly with chocolate! It’s also great to pair graham crackers with a healthier option, almond butter (and you can sub the chocolate for slices of banana.
S’mores are the quintessential holiday weekend dessert. I decided to mix it up by using various flavors of Smash Mallows. Smash Mallows are very low calorie and the kids love them! I used the Meyer Lemon Poppy Seed, Strawberries and Creme, and Coconut Pineapple. They’re also gluten-free. You can get fancy with the chocolate but honestly, there is nothing quite like the melt of the Hershey’s Bar to create the perfect s’mores!
