I bought everything to make this but cannot find milk powder as it’s sold out everywhere. I really would like to make the vanilla crumbles. Any ideas for a substitution? Thank you!
Sorry, there’s not a good substitution for dry milk powder–it’s what makes the crumbles so distinctive! But in the post, Summer notes you can always make the crumbles and add them later. I’d say bookmark the crumbles for post-pandemic baking, but still make the granola now. It will be tasty even without them!
Hi…..I would really like to make this but oats are hard for my tummy to digest. What other options are available to use instead of the oats? Thanks!
You can use any mix of wheat flakes, rye flakes, or quinoa flakes. Rye and quinoa flakes are stronger flavored, so you my not want to go 100% on either of those. Might be hard to find any of them now, but who knows? There’s always the internet. Good luck!
This turned out great. Unfortunately I thought I had milk powder, but did not, so I only made the granola itself. I love several things about this recipe: It does not use a lot of oil, it makes a reasonable amount but not 10 tons of granola :-), and it only takes about 20 minutes in the oven. My oven may have been a little bit off but I noticed the oats getting very brown around the 18 minute mark so I pulled it. Anyway the finished product is delicious, it’s not too sweet, and I can’t wait to take it to work this week for my breakfasts. Thanks!
Hi, Suzanne! I’m so glad you liked the granola. It’s a weakness of mine. I want to eat it on everything! Thanks for taking the time to try it and let me know you enjoyed it!
For those of us who are severely lactose intolerant, what is the purpose for instant nonfat dry milk [powder]? I would think it could be omitted?
Hi, Alicia! Thanks for your question. The dairy powder is used to make the vanilla crumbles. They just add another layer of flavor and texture. The granola still tastes great without them.
Hi, Leslie — It’s 2 tablespoons. Sorry about that.
Can’t wait to try this! But first, re the cornstarch “2 tablespoons teaspoon cornstarch.” Is it tablespoons or teaspoons? :-)
Hi Leslie, the typo is fixed now, thanks for letting us know!
