I have a coworker with a dairy/whey sensitivity, yet I love making rum balls around this time of year and plan on bringing a batch to work.

Are there any close substitutions I can use in place of wafer crumbs that will stay fairly true to the original recipe?

  • I've seen recipes without dairy or "whey"; can' you just switch recipe ? – Max Dec 22 '16 at 15:44

Graham crackers should work well for you. I have used graham crackers and vanilla wafers interchangeably for several recipes. There are rum ball recipes that list several different crushed cookie options (using the same volume of each.)

I have vegan friends who love my rum ball recipe (which also calls for vanilla wafers). I've had great success using a vegan snickerdoodle crisp that I found at the store. Anything sufficiently crunchy without too-overpowering a flavor should be fine.
