I'm really struggling this year doing my Christmas baking. I can't have any milk in my diet due to Gracie's sensitivity to it so I am having to find all new things to make.

I thought of you Nicole, you could make these for Jordan! If any of you have any milk free Christmas yummies you'd like to share, I'd love to hear them!

Easy Chocolate Cookies (this is awesome, because I miss chocolate SO much!)
Mix 2 cups white sugar, 1/2 cup milk (I used rice milk), 1/2 cup butter and 1 tsp vanilla. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes.
Add 3 cups rolled oats and 1 cup coconut.
Spoon onto wax paper and cool

Thanks! Those look yummy--I'll add them to my collection

I have so many milk free treats to share. First off, for convienience chocolate fix, Oreo's are dairy free and vegan. There are several box mixes that are dairy free as well. Many Duncan Hines cake mixes are dairy free. I know the yellow, chocolate, red velvet, and spice are. You can also have Duncan Hines boxed brownie mix in Chewy Fudge or Triple Chocolate Decadance (unbelievable, right?!?!) As for canned frosting, many Pillsbury frostings are dairy free as well. The allergy label only lists soy.

That should cure your chocolate craving .

I'm also making pecan pie bars, rice krispie treats, and homemade chocolate pudding (made with almond milk). Let me know if you want any of those recipes.

In baking, you can substitute soy or rice milk for cow milk (cup for cup) in any recipe. And also, just sub Fleischmann's UNSALTED stick margarine (the salted variety has milk ) for butter in your baking/cooking.

Let me know if there is any specific recipe you'd like to make, chances are, I've got it


ETA-- I was just writing your recipe down, but I don't see the chocolate Is there cocoa in it?? If so, in what amount??

Oops! Yeah, 1/2 cup cocoa, stir it in when you add the oatmeal and coconut.

The unsalted Fleishman's margarine is what I use now but I only recently found it so I haven't done any baking (until today) with it, have you had any problems with it?

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the list of goodies! Especially the brownies! That's awesome! I did know about the icing, but I haven't taken the time in the grocery store to do a lot of label reading (I always go with both kids alone) so I've just avoided anything I assume has milk in it like cakes and brownies.

The margarine has worked just fine for all of my baking so far. My cookies are a little flatter, but they still taste good
