Vegan und schnell gemacht: Vanillekipferl - NIKIN EU

Vegan and quick to make: vanilla crescents

Vanilla crescents that smell of sweet vanilla simply taste heavenly. They require few ingredients and are baked quickly. Only the shaping takes some time and effort.

For the vegan version of the German-Austrian classic Vanillekipferl, the butter is replaced with coconut fat or margarine. And if you want to bake low-carb or gluten-free vanilla crescents, you can replace the flour entirely with almond flour.

Have fun baking and enjoying!

Ingredients for approx. 40 pieces of vanilla crescents

Esin Portrait
I'm so excited to be able to share one of my favorite things with you. Cooking and baking have been with me since I was a child. I love conjuring up delicious meals and dishes from good quality food. I love exploring different country cuisines or improvising to create vegan alternatives. A method of preparation that preserves vitamins is just as important to me as the orientation towards seasonal and regional products.
I can even share my passion for cooking and baking with young people in my professional life as a secondary school teacher when I teach the subjects of business, work and household.
Other activities I love to do include yoga, swimming (preferably in the sea), reading and being with my family or friends.
