View Full Version : Any really good substitutions for graham cracker crumbs?
09-22-2009, 03:58 PM
I would like to make a raw version of the nanaimo bar base which is pretty much only butter, sugar, coconut and graham cracker crumbs. I can make the other substitutions but it needs something like the unique flavour of the graham crumbs. any thoughts?I can only think of almonds and would like something with a different flavour. thanks for any help.

I made a peanut butter cup (raw:eek:) that had almond, cocoa, and a bit of coconut in it. I think it tasted better than the normal nanaimo bar base.

Macadamia nuts would replace both the butter and the graham cracker crumbs. I use them in all my pie crusts. Don't process them too smooth, you want a coarse texture, not a mac-nut butter.

I suppose I might have to try them both this week:)

So I just made the PB cups again and I was not quite truthful about the crust. There is 1c. almonds, 1/2 c cocoa, 1/4 c coconut oil, 1/2 c raw sucanat sugar 2TB maple syrup, 2TB cocoa nibs, 2 tsp vanilla, 1/8 tsp salt. Sorry if I was misleading. That said this is an awesome base for almost anything. Cheesecake, nanaimo bars...

You could make the graham crackers from this recipe:
...and then just crumble them!
