Almost Vanilla Wafers

Almost, because they are not crunchy like vanilla wafers but they have a wonderful vanilla flavor, and the only thing wrong with them is that it is hard not to eat too many!

I used xylitol in this recipe which some of you don't use, just add 1/4 cup of a sweetener of your choice in it's place.  I also used a couple TBS of oat flour.  If you don't have or want to use oat flour, you can put that amount  more of almond meal probably, or flaxmeal.  The whey protein I used was unflavored but if you use vanilla whey protein you may not need to add vanilla since it already calls for vanilla Torani syrup.

  1. Were you able to purchase almond meal (where?) or did you make it with your food processor (How fine do you grind?).

  2. I usually buy mine for $4 at Trader Joe's, or make it myself. I have a video here: http://ginnyslowcarbkitchen.blogspot.com/2010/03/how-to-make-blanched-almond-meal.html
    on how to make it. You can also buy it online at netrition.com or other places.

    How many cookies does the recipe make and how many in a serving?

  4. This recipe makes 20 cookies. 1 cookie is one serving.

  5. I love this recipe so much. I just made some and my mother was really proud of me. She told me it is really delicious. Thanks!

  6. That's great cribs. :) Glad you and your mother liked it!
