Does the recipe also have some form of liquid in it like stock or water? If it has water as well, you could just sub out the powder and milk for almond milk or something similar that is dog friendly. If not, you could always just try and leave it out. Pet cookie recipes are very forgiving.

I’m dairy/lactose free and I use coffee mate, which does the same thing as powdered milk essentially.

Also dairy free here and use Coffeemate. I would double-check the ingredients of Coffeemate to make sure those are safe for your pups first though.

Vance’s darifree powder. It’s amazing.

skier11 :  I’m not sure what ingredients are unsafe for dogs, but I’m sure the ingredients are easily google-able. The Darifree is a good option too!

skier11 :  in that case I’d leave the oil in, and replace the milk powder and water with almond milk or something similar. Recipes often use milk powder and water instead of milk to lengthen the shelf life.

Granted, I don’t know what is dog-safe, but they also make rice milk powder, soy milk powder, and coconut milk powder if you go to a store with a decent vegan foods section like a co-op they will likely have one of those.
