Vegan Nilla Wafers

These crispy and buttery homemade vegan Nilla wafers are so good, you'll never miss the store-bought version.

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Total Time 15 minutes
Yield 40 - 42 wafers


  • 3/4 cup spelt, white, or oat flour (for flourless, try these Keto Cookies)
  • 1/4 tsp each: salt and baking soda
  • 1/4 cup sugar, unrefined if desired
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter or oil
  • 4 tsp milk of choice
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 325 F. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Stir remaining ingredients in to form a dough. Either smush dough into a big ball or transfer to a gallon-sized ziploc and smush into a ball from inside the bag. Roll the dough out until very thin (see photo above). Cut shapes with a cookie cutter or jar lid. Bake 15 minutes on the center rack. They will get crispier as they cool.
