In our family, these are known as Nairns Smores Bars. Nairn went home to the Ranch in the Sky on December 25th, 2005. She leaves behind memories of her smile, hug, love, laughter and cooking. She was like a second Mum to my sisters and I and I miss her everyday. 

This recipe for S’mores Bars is one that I make all the time. It’s so easy and so delicious you’re family will love ’em! (And you’ll be trying to keep your fingers off of your 6th, 8th?) one.

You no longer have an excuse not to bake homemade cookies. 

I consider the ingredient list to have 3 parts. The Fat, The Flour and The Bits.

The Fat

HAS to be butter. Don’t you dare use margarine or substitute oil. Use butter.

The Flour 

While it calls for 2 cups of flour, I’ve used 1 ¼ cup flour and ¾ cup oatmeal, you could use some wholewheat. It’s nice to a bit of cocoa too! (And more chocolate in the bits sections) Mix it up baby!

The Bits

The original recipe calls for 1 c chocolate chips and 1 c chopped walnuts. For old times sake, I made the batch tonight with them! I use any of the following in the bits:

  • Milk, dark or white chocolate
  • Butterscotch chips
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Sunflower or Pumpkin Seeds
  • Walnuts, pecans, almonds, peanuts, macadamia nuts
  • Raisins, Dried cranberries or blueberries
  • Coconut

Some of my favourite combos? White chocolate and macadamias, mini marshmallows and butterscotch chips, dried blueberries and coconut, raisins and milk chocolate! The list goes on and on and on.

    This is such an easy recipe to change it how you need it. My son has major allergies so I use olive oil instead of butter, gluten free flour and pumpkin seeds in place of the nuts! So good! Our whole family loves them!

    After I made these the first time I sent the recipe to my mom and sisters and told them they had to try it. I’ve made variations depending on what I have on hand and they always turn out fantastic!

      So good and easy!! One of those treats that are so addictive you just keep swiping another piece every time you pass through the kitchen. ?

      Still want to try with mini marshmallows!!

    This is wonderful and so customizable with whatever is in the pantry. I love bar cookies, and they are great for hikes, road trips, etc. so this is a particular favorite of mine. Thank you!
