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.




Combine all ingredients,  loosely spread into a baking pan, and bake for 10 minutes.


Stir, breaking up any chunks, and bake for another 10 minutes.


After baking, allow to cool and store in a sealed container in the freezer. If desired run through a food processor to create finer crumbs.

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

  2. 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?

  3. 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!
