I can honestly say that I love eating healthy, I usually choose healthy foods over other foods because I want to, not because I have to. The keyword here is usually. Which means I eat healthy most of time and give myself a little lee-way for things that I enjoy like S’MORES.

When I eat S’mores, I always want S’more (lol). S’mores aren’t the healthiest kind of food, but they are darn sure delicious. Making everything homemade for s’mores requires too much work. Think, making your own graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate. It may be healthier to make that stuff from scratch, but when you don’t have them that often, it’s much easier to buy the store-bought stuff.

So what do you do when your craving S’mores and you don’t have a fire? Make a S’mores Mug cake! It takes even less time that making an actual S’more. You may never want to make a normal S’more again!

    Everything S’more is a favorite in our house! I will have to share this with my oldest and see if she can make it for an after soccer snack. I will tweak it to add in more protein.
