You have probably tried my keto chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I bet you haven’t turned the cookies into s’mores yet. This low carb chocolate chip cookie s’mores recipe is a delicious way to make chocolate chip cookies even better.

S’mores are more of an American dessert where chocolate and melted marshmallow are placed between two cookies of some description (usually graham crackers).
Since chocolate chip cookies are so delicious, I decided that they would be a suitable replacement for graham crackers. These low carb cookies are a perfect match to a piece of unsweetened chocolate and melted homemade marshmallow to glue it all together.
Making homemade marshmallow may be much easier to make than you think. This recipe involves emulsifying heated Nuvia Sweetener with gelatine powder. An interesting fact is that gelatine powder can also be used to create a deliciously frothy keto coffee without the use of dairy.
What Is Nuvia Baking?
Nuvia Baking is a blend of erythritol, soy protein isolate, chicory root extract and stevia extract. It is designed to be a one-for-one sugar replacement in baked goods, specifically home baking.
The regular “coolness” of the erythritol is balanced out by the sweetness of stevia, giving this blend a very similar taste to sugar.
Regular sugar is an ingredient that is solid at room temperature, liquid once heated and solidified again once cooled. Sugar also crisps, browns and bulks certain baked goods if used in the correct way.
Generally, I use 100% erythritol in my baking, which works very well for my keto chocolate chip cookie recipe. When replacing with Nuvia Baking, I found that the cookies didn’t melt quite the same as when I used plain erythritol, so keep that in mind when baking these cookies. You will have to press them down to shape before baking.
Strictly speaking, I cannot say this recipe is 100% keto friendly as it does contain soy protein isolate, which is derived from a legume. For those who are simply eating a low carbohydrate diet, this sweetener is going to work perfectly for you.
Expert Tips For This Recipe
There are a few tips to follow in order to achieve the perfect cookie and marshmallow. Simply read through these tips before making this recipe for optimum results.
- When placing the cookies onto a baking tray, make sure you press the dough down into the shape of a cookie before you put them into the oven. Otherwise, you will end up with baked cookie balls.
- Using an electric whisk is key when making the marshmallow, and will take 8-10 minutes before the mixture becomes fluffy enough to use as a marshmallow.
- Pre-grease the mold you are using for the marshmallow because things can get very sticky if the container is not lubricated.
I hope you enjoy making these low carb chocolate chip cookie s’mores. Take them to your next camping trip, roast the marshmallow over the fire and enjoy the delicious taste of a low carb treat.
