    These look delicious! We have a dairy allergy in the family– do you have a suggestion for a substitution for the dry milk powder?

    Also have dairy issues…which eliminates the soy option too…and don’t really want to add sugar…any other thoughts? Is the milk powder primarily to hold it together the way flour would?

      Hi Lorrie!
      We would suggest increasing the oats to 1 cup and adding 1/4 cup ground flaxseed or 1/4 cup gluten-free flour. Enjoy!

    I know you guys have discussed the dairy thing. We are a lactose intolerant family, too. I was thinking about using almonds that I process into a powder in the food processor. Do you think that would work. I was also thinking the almond flavor would be nice with the other ingredients.

      I would assume the homemade almond meal would work as a substitute for the dry milk. Not sure if the amount needed would change though…let us know how it works!

    This sounds yummy! I’ve heard of something similar…in my prenatal classes the teacher recommended this but instead of the mild powder she used protein powder. I totally forgot about it until this post. Thanks!

      Hi Leslie,
      You can certainly use natural PB. The only reason we called for “natural” is because we called these “clean eating” snacks, and it has to be natural to be “clean.” Enjoy!
