When I first discovered this recipe, I thought there was NO WAY these could possibly taste good. After all, whole wheat cookies are usually not the best idea (at least according to my family :) But I’ve been looking for snacks to keep in the diaper bag for Addison…something other than cheerios and graham crackers (that contain all sorts of horrible stuff). I figured that, yes, these are still cookies, but they at least have all REAL ingredients in them. And I was able to make them in a mini size that’s perfect for my little one.

Check them out. They don’t look bad, huh?

And guess what? They’re GOOD! I was shocked.
Interested? Here we go with the recipe:
Whole Wheat Vanilla Wafers
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sucanat or brown sugar

1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Cream butter and sugar.

Add egg and vanilla, beat until combined.

Stir in remaining ingredients.

Now you have 2 options:
1. Fill a pastry bag with dough and pipe into little tiny piles (about the size of a quarter) on a parchment lined baking sheet.
2. Make your own pastry bag and proceed with above directions. Check it out…

I saw this on Rachel Ray once and always wanted to try it out. It works! Just put the dough in a ziplock bag, cut a tiny snip off the corner, and voila! You have your very own piping apparatus!

Once you get all your little blobs made, stick the sheet in the oven for 15 minutes at 325. They crisp up beautifully, and they taste delicious!

Now all I need to do is fill a little tupperware and stick them in my bag. Hooray for snacks!

    You can use the same zipper bag for fancy frosting for cakes. Just fold a piece of tape over that corner, do your snip, and put a frosting tip in the hole before filling the bag. The tape reinforces the bag just enough that you don’t push the frosting tip out the hole.
