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 love these breakfast bars. I found this recipe about 2 months ago and always have a batch made for something to eat on the go.

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?

Although Carnation Instant Breakfast isn't gluten free, meal replacement pre-mixed drinks may be - Ensure and Boost both say gluten-free on their labels.

So many ask often for nutrition content... you can go to and input the recipe. It even allows you to make changes... a great resource for us all.

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.

Beans and legumes do contain lectins. I am not sure if pressurized cooking really removes them (and I cook with one). I would look for scientific research and not a blog to back this up. If you suspect lectins are an issue for you and are willing to experiment, then completely remove them for...
