Powdered Milk Substitute

Hi, I am so excited to find a few recipes for carob sweets! I am on a wheat, gluten, egg, dairy and sugar free diet - and have been for seven years.

It's only been in the last 2 years that I have actually found the courage to make my own recipes, as you could imagine the difficulty I had with a standard recipe with so much substituting to do.

I can't wait to try the Carob Squares recipe, and the carob Sesame balls.

I like the Idea of Carob Fruit Candy, but with such a large amount of milk powder I don't know what to use.

Do you know of any available dairy powder substitute? There are plenty of dairy free milks around - rice, soy, almond etc so is it possible to somehow work around this?

Also I have this most delicious recipe for Carob Crackles - free from all the above ingredients. My 2 1/2 y/o neice loves them and when she sees me says "Buy Alice Crackles?" It is in vain I tell her that I made them!

If you are interested I could post it on this site. Unfortunately I don't have a pic but if you are interested next time I make them I could add it to the recipe if I can do that.

Thank you for your time.

Hi Sabrina,

I'm glad you're enjoying the carob recipes. We would absolutely love for you to add your carob crackles recipe (and any others you come up with) to the site. The more the merrier.

If you end up taking photos at a later date, just send them to me via an email and I'll add them for you to the recipe page. ;) (angie (at) chocolate-candy-mall.com)

I'm not sure about a good powdered milk substitute. I'm going to send this post to a friend of mine who may have a suggestion for you. Also, other visitors may be able to help you out.

Milk powder substitute
by: Jo @ Quirky Cooking

Hi Sabrina,

There are a few dairy free milk powders you could use - you can get soy milk powder, and coconut milk powder, and goat's milk powder. The first two you can just buy at the supermarket, but the goat's milk powder I have bought online, or from health food shops. (Not sure if you can handle goat's milk, but some people can who have cow's milk intolerances.)

I also have a couple of recipes for making your own chocolate or carob here on my blog - just substitute carob powder for the cacao powder:
