    I would appreciate the nutritional content. My stepdaughter is type 1, but also has Celiacs. I need recipes that give me the carb count so that she can have fun gluten free treats, and I can know how to count it in her daily intake.

    Love this recipe. My husband is celiac and is training for a marathon so I needed things that give nutrition and are quick and easy. Plus, my girls love them and I know they are getting better nutrients and no gluten than rice crispy treats (which this reminds me of). Thanks thanks they are tasty

    I was wondering if anybody had an alternative to the Carnation Instant Breakfast...The label is now showing this it is processed in a factory that processes wheat. This looks like a great recipe and would love to make it for my daughter! Thanks!

    I, too, had the same concern. I found a post on another site in which Nestle had responded to a consumer's inquiry about Carnation Instant Breakfast. They said, "In response to your inquiry, some flavors of CARNATION INSTANT BREAKFAST contain gluten. In the ready-to-drink form, all flavors, with the exception of Strawberry Creme, contain gluten. In the powder form of CARNATION INSTANT BREAKFAST, Chocolate Malt flavor contains gluten. The source of gluten is not wheat, it is barley gluten which is found in the flavoring. The flavor is 4.2% malt syrup of which 2% is gluten. The other flavors are gluten-free." I'm thinking of trying to use a different flavor other than chocolate, though I wonder how that will taste?

    These protein breakfast bars are excellent and a life saver!

    I've replaced the carnation instant breakfast with Gen Soy brand soy protein shake. My daughter and I aren't huge chocolate fans so I split the powder in half using half vanilla and half chocolate. I've also added a 1/2 tsp of McCormick's pure almond extract to give it just a touch more flavor. I've found that it is a bit dry and doesn't stick together well so I add a few teaspoons of water. Her whole volleyball team loves them and they don't even realize they are gluten-free! Thank you so much for this recipe.
