Gluten Free Vanilla Wafers

Last week I needed to make a snack for my daughter that was comparable to “vanilla cookies.” So I came up with a gluten free vanilla wafer.

Both kids LOVE these. My husband and I do too!

These wafers are very easy to make. And one batch makes about 60 cookies. You can eat them plain. Or even put peanut butter or homemade frosting between two cookies for a real treat.

We tried chocolate frosting. My daughter said they were her “Oreos.”

If you need an easy treat that isn’t full of preservatives give these a try. Gluten free vanilla wafers are a great snack for any age at any time of day.
