Why Collagen in These Cookies?
There are so many reasons we use collagen in these healthy cookies. Collagen not only helps with the texture of these cookies (makes them extremely chewy), it also carries a whole bunch of health benefits!
Here are some health benefits of collagen:
Skin health- can lead to glowing and timeless looking skin
The s’mores flavor combo is a fav here in the Secretly Healthy Home. I’ve made Nutella S’mores Baked Oatmeal, and now THESE s’more cookies! S’mores is just one of the best combos around, am I right?? Chocolate, marshmallow, and salty sweet graham crackers. Here’s all the ingredients you’ll need to make these easy and healthy s’mores cookies…
Unflavored Collagen: I love using collagen to get that “chewy” factor and achieving an amazingly healthy and protein packed dessert! I have not tried making these without collagen, but I am sure they will still turn out awesome!
Pink Himalayan Salt: I love how this ingredient boosts the electrolytes in this recipe. I use pink Himilayan salt in ALL my recipes! Definitely check out my Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls if you like the salty sweet combo.
Baking Powder: This ingredient gives our cookies a little lift and fluff!
Plant Based Milk: I used unsweetened almond milk for my cookies, but you can use whatever milk you have on hand. Just like in my Chocolate Banana Bread, plant based milk allows for a moist, yet fluffy baked good.
Egg: This little guy will help hold our s’mores cookies together. I have not tried a flax egg or chia egg (if you’re looking for recipes with those, check out my Raspberry Brownies, or Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bars). You can definitely try using a vegan egg replacer though! Please let me know how they turn out!
Honey: This natural sweetener is optional. Depending on how sweet you like your treats and how sweet your graham crackers already are. I used homemade graham crackers, which are a little less sweet, but the addition of marshmallow and chocolate was enough sweetener for me.

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except marshmallows and chocolate chips. Mix until a cookie dough forms.
3. Scoop out about 1-2 Tbs of cookie dough and place on cookie sheet (I use a cookie scoop to do this). Repeat until all the dough is gone (should make about 12 cookies).
4. Cut or rip marshmallows in halves or fourths (I use kitchen shears) and place on top of each cookie. Place a few chocolate chunks/chips on top of cookies.
5. Bake at 350 F. for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are baked through and marshmallows are golden.
6. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving and enjoying!
Collagen: I have not tried making these cookies without collagen, but they should still work! The collagen allows the cookies to have a very chewy and gooey texture. Plus it adds protein and many other health benefits!
Egg Replacer: I have not tried using a flax or chia egg for this recipe. If you do, please let me know how they turn out! They should come out just as good!
Honey: The honey is optional in this recipe because depending on how sweet your graham crackers are you might not need it. Just add honey or maple syrup to taste if needed.
