Secular goods for church: Back Oblaten?

This one might be more for my Independent Catholic/Independent Sacramental readers than Unitarian Universalists (or Quakers).

I found these Back Oblaten — baking wafers — at a specialty store over the weekend. They’re used to keep cookies from sticking to a pan. A Christmas favorite is lebkutchen — a kind of light gingerbread — cookies with glaze or chocolate on one side and a wafer on the other.

A wafer like, perhaps exactly like that used in the Mass.

So a mental calculation. A hundred — I think — large (70 mm) hosts for $2.50, and easy to get. Say for low masses? A good deal.

Use them, friends, or no?
