Ingredients
  

Crust

  • 2 cups (240 g) vegan graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup (55 g) packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) melted vegan butter

Cookie Dough

  • 2 1/4 cups (281 g) all-purpose flour (measured correctly*)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp (5 g) cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks [169 g]) vegan butter, slightly softened*
  • 1/3 cup (73 g) packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup (150 g) granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) non-dairy milk
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup (212 g) vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 1/4 cups (80 g) vegan mini marshmallows

For topping

  • 1-2 vegan chocolate bars, broken up into pieces (or desired amount)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180°C). Line a 9"×13" (23x33cm) pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Make the crust by mixing together the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, and butter until well combined. Press firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • Make the cookie dough: Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and cornstarch to medium mixing bowl and whisk until combined.
  • Add the butter, brown sugar, and sugar to a large mixing bowl or bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the milk and vanilla and beat again until well combined.
  • Add the dry mixture to the wet and mix until just combined.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips and marshmallows.
  • Carefully press the cookie dough evenly on top of the graham cracker crust. Top with the chocolate pieces and gently press them in.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 16-18 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean or with just crumbs.
  • Allow to cool and slice into 24 bars.

Notes

  1. Measure your flour using the spoon-and-level method or your bars may turn out dry and crumbly.
  2. You should use vegan buttery sticks (like Earth Balance) in this recipe rather than butter out of a tub. For the best consistency, bring your butter out 30 minutes to an hour before using.
