Kinnikinnick sells cookie crumbs that I have used for a crust before. So, maybe you could crush some gluten-free cookies.

Recipe for gluten free graham crust

1 1/2 cups G.F. flour

1/2 cup margarine (melted)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup chopped nuts

Mix ingredients and spread evenly but lightly in a 9" z 13" baking pan

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes

Stir until well crumbled, return to oven and bake 10 minutes more until browned evenly

Cool and use as a base for any desserts calling for a graham wafer base.

Hint: Double the recipe and store the rest for future use.

The G.F. flour mixture is made up with

6 cups of sweet rice flour

2 cups tapioca flour

1 cup potato starch flour

Or use any commercial brand of gluten free flour.

Hope this helps :P

I crush up any gluten free cookie or homemade cookie, including ginger snaps, shortbread, animal crackers, etc. Any works ... just depends on the taste you want.

I also do this for cheesecake crusts :)

I also do this for cheesecake crusts...and then just follow any "normal" recipe and substitute my crumbs in.

I LOVE those bar cookies.......when I make mine I use pamela's pecan shortbread (like pecan sandies of our gluten filled days). Crumble them up and put in the butter like always. It turns out great!!

Crushed Gluten Free corn flakes, with some cinnamon and sugar added make great crumbs, I use it all the time for my cheesecakes and no one can tell the difference.

I've also used crushed chocolate sandwich cookies (Kinnetoo's or Midel) to make a chocolate crumb crust for a cheese cake.m That is terrific.

for my recipes (esp gluten-free cheesecake) i use some sort of ground nut--usually pecans. i sub it equally for the crumbs and still add the Tbsp or whatever of melted butter/sugar. i love it and even non-gluten-free people say it's better than regular crust. i dunno... its something i do that's easier than trying to find all those gluten-free cookies/crackers out here on the prairie :) lol good luck!

I just recently found out I was gluten intolerant. I had the blood tests to see if I was a cealic & they were "normal" so I had something with flour in it that night & of corse I had a big outbreak. so now no flour for me for 3 weeks & no break outs no nothing...thank you so much for putting this website up. it's almost like a lifeline for me...I just realized cheese cake doesn't have flour in it & it is so easy to make but then I thought, what do I use for a crust?!? well the crushed gluten-free cookies are a wonderful idea! I hadn't thought of that. thank you so much xoxo you are all a God send to me. I will get used to this, it will just take time...

Yep! I stumbled on this old thread because I was searching for a good price on the Kinnikinnick gluten-free graham-style crumbs (I'm making 'magic bars' for the holidays and need to stock up). These are identical in taste and texture to the real thing and are a one-for-one replacement. No need to alter any recipes whatsoever.

    • The first two tests (at least in the US and most of the EU) have been replaced by the DGP tests (at the bottom) of GFinDC's list of celiac tests.  Not all celiacs test positive to the common Screening TTG.   The TTg is good and catches most and it was cheaper to run the best one (it is all about the money), but researchers realized they were not catching all celiacs.  Here is a link to the University of Chicago's celiac website.  When I was diagnosed three years ago, this site recommended just the TTg (as did the American GI Association).  Now they have expanded the list of celiac tests.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Luckily, my GI must have just attended a GI conference and he ordered the complete panel for me.  ($400). It paid off.  Only my DGP IGA was positive and the rest of the blood panel (including the popular TTG test) was negative.  My biopsies revealed some severe intestinal damage.  My new health provider only allows PCP/GP doctors to only order the TTG.  So, if I want the follow-up testing to see if I have improved or had a gluten exposure, I must go to my New GI.  Yep, it is all about the money!   Keep eating gluten and make sure your  GI takes four to six samples during the endoscopy.  Maintain copies of all your results.   Your symptoms?  Yes, there are over 300 celiac disease symptoms.  celiac disease does not just affect the gut, but mis-informed and those who do not keep up with the latest in medical, do not seem to know that!   Do not give up!  
    • It's great to hear from you, Nightsky.  Glad to also hear of your steady progress.  Living gluten free is definitely a learning process, and even the baby steps are times to celebrate.  Wish you all the luck in the world as you continue to heal for the glutenization.  
    • Hi Nicky, When you first go gluten-free your symptoms often do change.  Feeling better or worse is possible.  The healing process is a major change in our gut and that means a big change in the gut flora is likely,  which can cause symptoms by itself.  Additionally the immune system doesn't stop making antibodies on a dime.  the immune system keeps working  to defeat the gluten invaders until it is darn good and ready to take a break. You really shouldn't start the gluten-free diet until all testing is completed.  That includes a full celiac disease panel and an endoscopy with biopsy samples.  It's much easier to complete testing while still a gluten eater than it is to stop gluten and go  back on it for testing later.
    • Hi Kircket, Welcome to the forum! Yes, he could be wrong.  Not everyone passes the blood tests.  And they are just one part of the diagnostic process anyway, although an important one.   Did you have the complete celiac antibodies panel? Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA If you didn't have the full celiac disease antibodies test panel, I'd insist on getting it done.  There have been numerous people on the forum who tested positive on one antibody but not on others.
    • Three years ago I lost about 40kgs (Aussie lol) by better diet & exercise. All was going great til I stopped losing. I upped my exercise but bizarrely started gaining weight. One night a week of not being able to sleep soon became two, then virtually every night with either 1-2hrs tops or none at all. These weird symptoms started about two years ago, becoming worse in say, the last 9mnths. Then I started to get diarrhea. Occasionally then weirdly 2-3 days with multiple occurences then a day or two with nothing, then back to loose & offensive. My GP ran tests, including the TTga (hope that's  right) antibody blood test. Negative so he tells me that's not it. After 9mnths of this he shrugs and says, "I don't know what it is I've run out of ideas what ideas do you have?" Finally refers me to a gastrointerogist.  Private, of course and can't really afford it but we (my fiance and I) go. Stools and blood samples are ordered, basically bye, see you in a month. I have looked my symptoms up and they seem to point to Celiac. Today we went back. I have been having bloated stomach, sore back and limbs,  lovely burps, constant urination and crushing anxiety attacks folowed by depression (which I have never had before in my life). Admitted over the last weekend I didn't sleep for two and a half days and found myself hallucinating and crying to just be able to sleep. Mr fancy pants gastrointerogist says," Hey great news, the stools samples rule out parasites and Crohns!" I tell him how excrutiating the last month has been to which he replies, "It's not Celiac disease, (points at negative blood test results). Celiac doesnt present with diarrhea, anxiety and frquent urination all together." I also had a fecal occult blood test which showed positive & notes say are maybe due to a lower gi bleed, and a ct scan that says shows some damage which, in their words, could be due to a condition such as Celiac disease. He has booked me for a double scope as the next step, has a few ideas what it could be (won't tell me because he doesn't want me to be 'anxious'). Told me to consider that all these symptoms could be me just worrying and being anxious. Told him when this started I was not worried about anything, shrugged and said, It could stil have happened, hey, sometimes we never find out what causes it and your just stuck with diarrhea forever." Then as I was leaving he slapped me on the back and said, "Don't worry so much, see you soon." I need to have the scopes done but is it me or are the things I was told today not true?  I would honestly love it not to be Celiac disease but could he be wrong?
