Hi. Fairly new at this diet. Trying to cook for father and son. Does anyone have a substitute for graham wafer crumbs in a cheesecake?

Try Pamela's Shortbread cookies. It will be a different taste.... but they are good and do not leave a funny taste in your mouth.

I like to use Mi-del's Arrowroot Animal Crackers. I add a touch of sugar and cinnamon, as well as the butter to the crumbs to press into the pan. I don't notice a difference at all.

Kinininick (SP?) makes a gluten-free graham cracker crust. It tastes like the real thing. They have a website if you can't find them locally.

I have also used crushed gluten-free corn flake crumbs with sugar and cinnamon added and it realy is quite good.

Another cookie that you could crush is Kinnikinnick's KinniKritters. It's also Dairy/Casein Free (probably not a problem if you are making cheesecake :P ) and egg free. Like the Midel arrowroot cookies, I'd add some butter and maybe/maybe not on the sugar - depends on how sweet you want it.

Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

I like to use Mi-Del gluten free pecan sandies and ginger snaps for crumbs, too. Also, Harvest Valley makes rice bran crackers that taste an awful lot like graham crackers but not quite as soft. They'd probably make a good crust.

And you can also make a crust using pulverized almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, etc. Here's a link off of Whole Foods website:

And here's another link that has the pie crust listed near the bottom:

You don't have to use almonds - it's just relatively easy to find almond meal (you can even get it at Trader Joe's).

Depending on the cheesecake, I think a toasted pecan crust would be heavenly!

I second the vote for the Kinnikinnick graham crumbs..they are just as good as the regular ones. Their Chocolate Cookie crumbs are also delicious to use as pie crust.

I use the Kinnikinnick crumbs and/or make a nut crust. Both are delicious.
