Graham Wafer Crumbs?

Recommended Posts

Guest andie

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?

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.

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.

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.
