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.
