9 posts in this topic

I used to buy graham cracker crumbs from Gluten Free Delights (I believe that was the name of it), and they have since closed their doors. I've been searching gluten-free websites trying to locate another place I can purchase them from but am having no luck.....has anyone been able to find them? can you tell me where you've seen them or where you've bought them from? Thanks SO much!!!!! :)

I have not tried to purchase ready made "graham" crackers since going gluten-free (I have not had much success finding ready made cookies and crackers that either taste good or don't contain soy). Bette Hagman's cookbooks have some good recipes for crackers and cookies, including "graham" crackers. If you are adventurous, you might want to check out some of those recipes.

I find graham crackers at Outside The Breadbox. They have a website. the shipping is a little expensive but everything they have is fantastic.

Gina,

I substitute almond flour for the graham cracker crumbs, and you can barely tell the difference if you bake the crust by itself until golden, then add the filling. It's easier to find that gluten-free graham cracker crumbs.

I guess I should've been more clear as to what I was going to use it for. I'm not using it as a pie crust. I make this 'no bake peanut butter candy' and graham cracker crumbs are used in the recipe. It ends up tasting just like a reices peanut butter cup when you're done with it. so i guess i could buy the crackers and grind them up if i have to, since i cant locate anyplace that sells the actual crumbs.

This Christmas we used gluten-free graham cracker crumbs from Celiac Specialties in our chocolate covered peanut butter balls - also very similar to a reese's cup. Delicious! Not cheap, but perhaps worth it if you place a bigger order to minimize the expense of shipping.

I use the graham cracker crumbs from Kinnikinnick. I used them in the peanut butter recipe that you are talking about and they worked great. They taste very much like regular graham cracker crumbs, but the actual graham style cookies they sell are very fragile and don't look at all like the regular cookies my kids used to eat. I find it easier to just buy the bag of crumbs for recipes since only one of my three will eat the cookies. http://www.kinnikinnick.com

I would only be wise to order from them if there are other things at their site that you want to buy. The shipping is a flat rate of $10 and it would not be nice to order one bag of $3.50 crumbs and end up paying 3 times that much for shipping. I order about $100 worth of stuff from them a month, since they are our main bread/pizza crust/donut supplier. So it is worth it to me! :D

God bless,

Mariann

    • Mnoosh,    Can you give us a link to the article you read about the increased risk after being diagnosed and maintaining a strict gluten-free diet??       IMO,   You are over reacting to a misprint or most likely a misread article.
    • Yes!  With dairy, celiacs can often have a temorary lactose intolerance due to damaged intestinal villi (where the enzymes normally are released to digest lactose).  Of course you could be naturally lactose intolerant based on race or age.  It is best to stick to a whole foods diet while you are healing.  Really, is ice cream or potato chips going to provide you with nutritional value?  Stick with naturally gluten free foods like meat, fish, fats,  veggies (even those with carbs like sweet potatoes or winter squash) and fruit.  Avoid that processed junk as you may react to the additives right now.  Later, you can add back in dairy (test) and other foods you miss and crave.   Good luck!  
    • Take a deep breath and calm down!    The incidence of cancer with Celiac Disease is rare.......it can happen but the vast majority of people never have that experience.  You may have somewhat enlarged lymph nodes due to inflammation from undiagnosed Celiac but that will all calm down and go away once you get going on the diet.  Believe me, there are many of us that have things happen during the diagnosis and early recovery period and everything turned out just fine.  There is an elevated risk for some cancers with Celiac but that risk goes back to that of the general population after a couple of years on the gluten-free diet. I cannot remember the exact time frame but it is somewhere between 2-4 years, I think.  So many of us went years without a diagnosis and when it was all figured out, we have gone on to be healthy with little complications.  Really...do  not worry about this.  Concentrate on learning all the ins and outs of this disease and how to live gluten free happily.  We are here to help you and guess what? The diet is not as bad as some make it out to be. Many things can be made gluten free and are every bit as good as their gluten counterparts. The diet may not be convenient but it is not hard. I would not lie to you!   
    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
