Whole Wheat Vanilla Wafers

Whole Wheat Vanilla Wafers

I found this recipe on Heavenly Homemaker’s site.  The only thing that I do differently is to use vanilla beans instead of vanilla extract.  We have grown to love this recipe!  Gregg has always loved a snack of vanilla wafers and peanut butter.  I love that I found such a healthy recipe.  I send a batch or two with every care package to Gregg, and use them when I make Banana Pudding and Mascarpone Cheesecake with Almond Crust.


½ cup unsalted butter
¾ cup light brown sugar
1 egg
seeds from 1 vanilla pod -or- 1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
¼ tsp Kosher or sea salt
½ tsp baking powder


large bowl
piping bag
parchment paper
baking sheet


Preheat oven to 325° degrees F.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

See vanilla pod.  (My pictures were terribly blurry – I will post them as soon as I take more.)


Put butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla in large bowl.

Cream together.

Add flour, salt, and baking powder.

Put in a piping bag.  (If you don’t have one, you can use a small spoon to do the same thing.)

Pipe small drops of dough onto the parchment paper (about the size of a cherry tomato).

Place in oven.  Bake for 15 minutes.  After 15 minutes, turn the oven off and leave them in there for 30 more minutes.  Remove from oven and place on cooling rack.
