Graham Cracker-Style Crumbs (Nut Blend)

If you can’t find gluten-free graham crumbs, make your own! Using gluten free flours, this version creates more of a cookie crust flavor and texture.

  1. are there gluten free grams?

  2. Yes you can buy gluten free graham crumbs. This recipe is handy to have if you run out and need something in a pinch!

  3. I can’t eat nuts. Is there anything that might be substituted for them?

  4. Not really in this recipe, since the nuts is what gives it its graham-like texture. You might want to try this version of graham crumbs then: Graham Cracker Style Pie Crust

  5. The graham cracker crumbs cookie style calls for potato starch flour. Potato starch and potato flour are different things. Most recipes expressly state which to use. If it calls for potato starch we are warned against using potato flour and visa versa. This is an error. Which should be used?

  6. Your are totally right! Just a typo on my part, it should be potato starch (I rarely ever use potato flour). Thanks for the catch!
