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.

    • Celiac is an autoimmune condition, and along with other autoimmune diseases, scientists are beginning to have a larger context for understanding what could be contributing to its immune dysregulation. In the last decades we’ve seen diseases becoming prevalent now that look very different from the diseases of our ancestors. View the full article
    • My DH was diagnosed with celiac disease several months ago and I was just getting a handle on baking again, turning out gluten free quick breads, muffins, biscuits, breads and cakes like a champ when.....more allergies. Now we are gluten free, dairy free, egg free.....and rice free. Yikes. I've converted to almond and coconut milk, that was a breeze. Vegan egg substitute just made its way into the house for baking and I have high hopes, though I haven't used it yet.  I need a gluten free flour blend that doesn't contain rice flour. On hand I have oat, coconut, sorghum, fufu and amaranth flours, potato starch, corn starch, and xanthan gum. I need a mix that will use what I have on hand, and that will work for quick breads like banana and pumpkin bread.  Anyone have a recipe that has worked for them in the past?
    • Thankyou so much that's really helpful I did wonder about dairy as I seem to bloat a little after a coffee with milk
    • Love your attitude - it will really help you going forward (I was you three years ago...) Don't be surprised as time goes on if you have a lull in your fortitude.  Every once in a while I see (or smell!) a food I really miss, or have an accidental glutening that sets me back, or someone that doesn't understand my issues and thinks I'm a faddist.  I've learned to let myself have a sulk and a pity party and then move on.   Good luck!
    • Hi Natalie, That sounds like how it often goes after beginning the gluten-free diet.  We'd like to think that it would be steady progress in the up direction but it seems like our healing goes back and forth a little.  The immune system reaction takes a while to settle down, weeks to months.  So it is hard for the gut to heal while that reaction is going on. It's helpful to eat simple foods at first and avoid dairy.  Processed foods including baked goods are best left on the shelf.  Try to eat whole foods only including meats, vegetables and nuts.  Carbs and sugar are not helpful. Things should get better after a month or two if your diet is clean of gluten and diary.  Then you can try adding things back in slowly one item a week. Peppermint tea can help with bloating.  Probiotics may help too. Welcome to the forum!
