<article> <section> <p align="justify">A crackling campfire, a silly sing-along, and the company of loved ones—summer nights are for kicking back and relaxing! Many of the iconic treats served at such weekend gatherings aren’t exactly keto-approved, though. Loaded with refined sugars, grains, and starches, they’re typically off-limits for a health-conscious person. But by planning ahead, you can bring some amazing keto goodies to your next cookout or bonfire!</p> <h2>One-Two Punch</h2> <p align="justify">Micronutrients are essential parts of our diet. We need to have vitamins, minerals, and other key nutrients to build strong bones, maintain muscle health, and achieve our best lives. But it’s not enough to get these in isolation! Combinations of foods often pack more of a punch than eating a single nutrient or food on its own. That’s because adding healthy fats or certain antioxidants helps the body to absorb and use key nutrients. For example, the almond flour in our <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/keto-graham-crackers/" rel="noreferrer">Keto Graham Crackers</a> works together with the polyphenols in the dark chocolate to boost the heart-healthy properties of both! Savoring this sweet snack may help raise your HDL, lower your LDL, and improve your blood pressure.</p> <h2>Dark and Dreamy</h2> <p align="justify">On the keto diet, you might think chocolate is forbidden. But you’d be wrong! This decadent treat can actually be a keto-friendly snack in moderation. It’s all about the type of chocolate you choose. Milk chocolate contains loads of added sugars and often other sneaky ingredients, too. But baking chocolate—and many dark chocolate bars—leaves out the unhealthy additives to focus purely on the rich chocolate experience. Check the label and choose the highest cocoa content you can find. Also look for brands that use stevia or other healthier alternatives to sugar. Choosing darker chocolate gets you extra health benefits, as well. Studies show that eating chocolate dramatically improves your mood. That pick-me-up is thanks to serotonin-boosting chemicals like theobromine. It may also improve your cholesterol balance, support heart health, boost your mental function, and even prevent some cancers! Going to the dark side, it seems, can be a wonderful thing.</p> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe"> <h2 itemprop="name" align="center">Keto S’mores</h2> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT5M">Prep Time: 5 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT10M">Cooking Time: 10 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: 4 </span> </div> <h3>Ingredients:</h3> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">4 <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/keto-marshmallows/" rel="noreferrer">Keto Marshmallows</a></li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">8 <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/keto-graham-crackers/" rel="noreferrer">Keto Graham Crackers</a></li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">4 squares dark chocolate, 85% cocoa or higher (we like Lily’s and Lindt)</li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <h3>Instructions:</h3> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <li><p align="justify">Prep a batch of <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/keto-marshmallows/" rel="noreferrer">Keto Marshmallows</a> and allow to dry overnight.</p></li> <li><p align="justify">Bake up a batch of <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/keto-graham-crackers/" rel="noreferrer">Keto Graham Crackers</a> and allow to cool completely. </p></li> <li><p align="justify">Preheat the broiler in your oven and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.</p></li> <li><p align="justify">Place 4 graham crackers on the prepared baking sheet.
