I make these recipes every week and this recipe has no modification for DAIRY FREE.  I came up with an alternative since we know several children with milk and dairy allergies.  Mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl, omitting the powdered milk.  Once you have all of the oats coated, you then pour it out on a baking sheet and bake it in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.   It turns out beautifully browned and tasty.  But, most importantly, it is Dairy Free.

Love this recipe:)  I do not keep powdered milk on hand and I have made this recipe without it many times and it comes out great.  My favorite variation is to replace the vanilla with maple extract and use dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds in place of the raisins and sunflower seeds.  I would say that even with baking, you need to watch the granola carefully because it can turn from goldren brown to burnt very quickly.

Very good. Can be used as a base and add different dried fruits and nuts. I found it easier to bake as the skillet must be watched carefully to avoid burning. I bake at 350 for about 20 min, stirring once after 10 min.

Great recipe to make and use in making Yogurt Parfaits!  Easy to adjust for students with various allergies.



Very fast, easy and very good! All of the students loved it.
