Sounds good! I think I'll try this with agave and gluten-free pretzels.

i'd prefer to omit the soy altogether. do those of you who've made these think the powder is a necessary ingredient? i'm planning to try using only vanilla alt-milk (probably almond). i'm not sure what role that powder plays, apart from flavor.

I think they used the vanilla Better than milk soy milk powder. But I guess using Vega's smoothie infusion could also taste awesome. Maybe the almondilla? I'm trying this out!

I couldn't find soy milk powder in my local stores, so I also used vanilla soy protein powder. It worked fine. One thing though; the mixture had a lot of trouble sticking together as written. I added another 4 Tbsp of water to the mix and it finally was moist enough to stick together. They are quick and tasty, and my kids love them.

Is it possible to use Agave Syrup instead of Brown Rice Syrup? And Almond Milk instead of Soy?

can someone tell me what they've used for the vanilla flavored powdered soy beverage in this recipe?? all my searches for powdered soy milk have turned up unsuccessful...and powdered protein powder just doesn't sound right...

actually powdered vanilla protein powder works fine, yo may have to add a little more water though. i omitted sugar and made with almond butter and these were a tasty quick treat if you are craving something sweet. i also used agave instead of the brown rice syrup and all was fine.
