Layered with banana slices, creamy peanut butter, gooey chocolate and marshmallow, no one will be able to resist these ultimate s’mores! — Includes directions for either oven or campfire method.
Now this is what I call Friday DONE RIGHT.
TG to the IF!! S’mores all around. ♥
Also, don’t hate me because I KNOW that I’m totally late to the s’more party, seeing as National S’more Day was last Sunday.
I don’t live under a rock, guys I promise! I just seriously lack in the planning department.
Forgive me? I come bearing the s’mores of your dreams.
I may be terrible with organization and all that super-boring stuff, but do you know what I recently discovered I do have a talent for? S’mores. Loaded with all of the above.
Don’t even try to tell me that s’mores aren’t a talent. They seriously should be because s’mores rock my world, they rock your world…they rock pretty much the ENTIRE world.
And anyone who says otherwise is officially a s’more-hater in my mind. What do they even DO with themselves at campfires?? Roast lettuce?
Any average person can make a s’more, but lemme tell ‘ya: It takes a SUPER-talented (and totally lucky) person to make s’mores at only 10am for photographing. And obviously for
taste-testing shoving in your face immediately following said photoshoot.
You know you want my job, guys. It has PERKS!! S’mores for lunch is only one of maaaaany.
I suppose I should probably stop my incoherent rambling and actually around to telling you ALL the deets about today’s s’mores. You know, before summer’s over.
Key points —>
- Peanut butter + bananas.
- Hanging out with the chocolate and marshmallows.
- All of said components sandwiched between the traditional graham cracker.
- 5 ingredients.
- 10 minutes.
Look how stuffed. SE-RIOU-SLY, stop the madness.
Clearly things are about to get messy around here. These s’mores are literally so stuffed with the NOMZ, that you’re undoubtedly gonna make a liiiitle bit of a mess. Chocolate on your face, ect. You know the drill…
You should probably change outta that pristine white shirt too…unless you’re interested in s’more tie-dye. Which I totally just made up.
Need I even mention that this teeny-tiny little s’mores hazard is WORTH IT?! Messy foods are so the best anyway. ♥
I’ve included directions in the recipe below for both the super-easy oven s’more method AND the traditional campfire way. Totally simple either way!
Not gonna lie though, I LOVE the speed of the oven-baked s’mores and the fact that I can have ’em any ol’ time, (dangerous option, FYI) but I’ve just gotta lean more towards the AUTHENTIC, old-fashioned way of making s’mores over an open summer fire. ♥
You can’t even beat that. 😉
You’re going to love these, guys. Like a lot. But just in case you don’t, do feel free to send me ALL of your s’mores leftovers, m’kaaaay?
5-Ingredient Peanut Butter Banana S’mores
- 16 graham crackers divided
- 8 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 1 medium banana peeled and sliced
- 8 1/4 oz squares semisweet chocolate

- OVEN METHOD:
- Preheat oven to 400F. Place 8 graham crackers on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Spread 1 tablespoon peanut butter over bottom of each cracker. Top with 2-3 banana slices per cracker and place 1 square of chocolate over each. Top each with a marshmallow.
- Bake s'mores at 400F 8-10 minutes or until chocolate and marshmallow begin to melt. Remove from oven and immediately top each s'more with remaining crackers, squishing down with your fingers. Enjoy s'mores immediately!
- TRADITIONAL METHOD:

I cannot stress enough the fact that your weekend needs THESE. → →
Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says
I am embarrassed to admit that I don’t like marshmallows (unless they’re in cereal or rice krispie treats) but I am loving these peanut butter banana smores, Sarah! Peanut butter makes everything better, and bananas are the perfect side to it. What a great Friday treat!
Aww thanks, Gayle! Even if you don’t like marshamallows, I definitely think you would definitely love these s’mores! 😉

OEMGGEEE- these smores are EPIC – these are smores on steroids! One of these bad boys and I won’t mind if you are late for the party – 2 of these bad boys and everyone would have to leave as I wouldn’t wanna share! Love love the PB and bananas added in!
“S’mores on steroids” = DYING. And it’s totally true! LOL. Thanks so much, girlie! xoxo
Dani @ Dani California Cooks says
WOW, just wow. I have a volume problem when it comes to smores. I can never eat just one!
Haha! I totally have that same problem, so you’re not alone, Dani! 😀
Rachael | Spache the Spatula says
Oh my gosh, yeas! So simple, but so perfect!
I think I need to make these this weekend!
You totally need to, Rachael! LMK if you do! 😉
Love that you added peanut butter and banana to s’mores! So many great flavors!
Thanks Christin! They really are s’mores to be reckoned with! 😉
Ummm, these might be the best smores I’ve ever seen! Putting bananas in them is such a genius idea! I haven’t made any smores yet this summer because it has been way too hot to have a fire, but hopefully it will cool down soon so I can make these babies 🙂
Yyess!! You so need for it to cool down in AZ asap, girl because you REALLY need these s’mores in your life! 😉
Kelley @ Chef Savvy says
These look amazing Sarah! Love that they are 5 ingredients and can be made inside!
Thanks Kelley! Totally winning at the s’mores game!
Gah s’mores. I haven’t had a single one all summer! It’s a travesty!! This look incredibleeeee.
Denise | Sweet Peas & Saffron says
First of all, you totally rocked these photos! S’mores are SO hard to photograph and these are just gorgeous photos, Sarah! Secondly, I need a s’more. STAT. These look so yummy!
Girl, you’re seriously the best! You’re so right that s’mores are a toughie to photograph, so thanks so much for all the photo love, friend! xoxo 🙂
