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.

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.

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

    • Pop Sugar published an article today called "Please Stop Asking For Organic and Gluten-Free Makeup." The link is below. The author claims that people with Celiac do not need gluten-free makeup unless, in her words, "you intend to drink your foundation." What do you think of articles like this? https://www.popsugar.com/beauty/Why-You-Dont-Want-Organic-Makeup-43262535#comments
    • I really enjoy mushrooms, using upside down portabello in my bagel bite sub recipe, sauted in nutiva butter flavored coconut oil then served over salads, no carb gluten-free noodle dishes, and pureed into a broth for a stew/soup.  Sometimes just snack on them even. But it has always been hit and miss, like sometimes I get glutened sometimes not, they are by industry standard grown on wheat, barley, and rye. Even washing them seems to not minimize the randomness of it hitting me. I was almost concerned I was getting a tad paranoid. I recent found a few articles, one even explains why I have a hit and miss issues with local strawberries. Thought I would share my findings, see if anyone else has noticed a random issues with them. https://www.verywell.com/are-mushrooms-gluten-free-562814 https://www.verywell.com/are-strawberries-gluten-free-562818  
    • Am I technically still early on in the diet at almost 5 months? Did you experience ups and downs like this at 5 months? And if I do eat foods that seem to bother me, as long as they don't contain gluten, is it hurting my progress? I think that's my fear. That if I have a dairy issue if I eat dairy (just an example) I will slow down my healing or that I will cause some immune response to the dairy. Or if I eat corn and corn bothers me is it damaging my intestine like gluten did? I spend so much time analyzing my gut. It's exhausting. 
    • If you click on the green circle  right of the thread title you can follow your thread and get an email when someone replies.  Please do that. There is a lot to learn about DH and celiac disease.  It's not like a cold or something silly that you get over in a week.  They are both lifelong chronic conditions.  So it's a real good idea to start reading up on these conditions so you are prepared to live well with them. DH can be controlled, but it takes attention.  Members report avoiding iodine is helpful during the active phase  of the skin rash.  They also report that the skin rash is very sensitive to minor amounts of gluten and cross-contamination.  Various treatments like DAPSONE are sometimes used but should not be an ongoing medication for life.  The side affects are substantial. It sounds like your doctors are not experts on DH.  If you can find a celiac support group in your are, they may be able to recommend a better doctor.  Not all doctors are good on celiac disease treatment and diagnosis. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/search/?&q=iodine  
    • That all makes sense about the carbs. I definitely eat carbs in the evenings, more so than during the day. I really don't think I'm being CC'd. But it's a worry. I just don't know how it would be happening. I think tonight I just won't snack and I'll see how I feel.
