Gluten-Free Crumb Crust

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


1 crust

I use this recipe to replace the graham cracker crusts because my father can't have the hydrogenated fats and sugars found in graham crackers. —Christa Hageman of Telford, Pennsylvania


  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup ground walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons thawed apple juice concentrate
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-in. pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 10-14 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. Fill as desired. If baking the filling, shield edges of crust with foil to prevent overbrowning.

    I didn't rate this much yet because I haven't actually tried it yet. I have a question. Could White Rice Flour be used in place of the Brown Rice Flour. Please answer soon, as I want to try this for Christmas as crust for a Caramel Pecan Cheese Cake Pie, the recipe for which is also found on TOH. I am going to substitute Pecans for the Walnuts in this recipe.
