Popcorn Krispies S'mores w/ Sweet Potato & Black Bean Fudge {oil-free} sweetsimplevegan.comApparently National S’mores Day is Wednesday, August 10? I honestly cannot keep up with all of these holidays, who the heck picks them anyways?

Well, I am going to have to thank that person in part for this recipe, cause if it wasn’t for a random email hitting my inbox telling me of this holiday, this recipe would not have been born! I had so so many vegan marshmallows in my pantry and this was the perfect excuse to use them all up.Popcorn Krispies S'mores w/ Sweet Potato & Black Bean Fudge {oil-free} sweetsimplevegan.comI decided to take a different approach in recreating the classic Rice Krispie Treats. Popcorn + cereal + granola, along with a bomb diggity sweet potato & black bean fudge inspired by my Healthy Chocolate Dessert Hummus (Low-Fat, Avocado-Free) and Deliciously Ella’s Sweet Potato Brownies.

Sweet Potato Black Bean Fudge:

  • 1 cup cooked sweet potato puree
  • 1/2 cup cooked black beans

  • 4 tbsp cacao or cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp ground chia
