Great Ways to Use Malt Powder

Make a Vegan Malted Milkshake

If you have some nondairy malt powder, vegan ice cream and plant milk, make vegan malted milkshakes. The rich, slightly nutty flavor of the malt powder is delicious with vanilla, chocolate or coffee shakes, but you can certainly do fruit malts like strawberry and banana. Treat yourself!

Make Bagels

To make the best bagels, you'll need malt powder or syrup (either one will work). But wait, there's more! You can also use malt powder to improve the texture and flavor of breads and muffins. Tip: Malt powder is particularly suited to whole wheat recipes.
