Sugar-Free, Low-Carb, Graham Cracker Crumbs


*I make “graham cracker crumbs” with Joseph’s lavash. (All of my crusts, crisps, and crumbles are in my upcoming book next year by that same name!)


You may use crisped tortillas, low carb wraps (not egg wraps or my low carb crepes), Joseph’s pitas, or other mild crackers of your choice to make “graham cracker crumbs” that are actually quite convincing, thanks for the Dilution Factor of low carb recipes!


Sugar-Free, Low-Carb, Graham Cracker Crumbs
Various torts, pitas, and other low carb products that can be crisped in the microwave or oven work to make “graham cracker crumbs”!



I use these all the time! They are in my upcoming Sugar-Free Reishies Cups (and seriously, nobody would have guessed they have whole grain pitas in them!); crusts for Cherry Delight; Magic Seven Layer Bars (the homemade, sugar-free “Eagle Brand” dilutes them wonderfully!); and many more.


I don’t always use these—sometimes I want a peanut butter taste, and I use my Sugar-Free, Flour-Free Peanut Butter Cookies crumbled for a crust (in my upcoming Sugar-Free, Flour-Free {SFFF} book). Sometimes I want a sugar-cookie taste (and use my upcoming Brown Sugar Cookies crumbled). Other times I want a chocolate crust, and I use my Starbucks Chocolate Malt Cookie knock off (also in SFFF book).


But when I want graham cracker crumbs, I don’t hesitate to use this—especially if there are a lot of yummy, fattening ingredients helping to dilute the more bland crust, like cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, melted chocolate, peanut butter, etc. I keep this “mix” in my pantry all ready to go (along with my many other mixes!).



Sugar-Free, Low-Carb, Graham Cracker Crumbs

Crisp these up for mild tasting crumbs!



I don’t have measurements for other “crisped” things—like low carb tortillas, gluten-free pitas, etc.—you will have to experiment with those. However, I know they would work equally well since the lavash is a low carb, whole grain, mild-tasting product, and those others are pretty mild as well.


With Joseph’s lavash, one package contains four rectangles. These four rectangles yield 1 ½ cup finely ground crumbs after crisping.



Follow instructions below.

Sugar-Free, Low-Carb “Graham Cracker” Crumbs
Recipe type: (THM S, E, FP; Very Low Carb)
Serves: Approx 5 cups
**Each rectangle has 4 net carbs. Thus, each half cup of “crumbs” is approximately 5 ½ net carbs.
  1. Crisp lavash in oven or microwave. I tear one lavash into a few pieces and crisp on high for 30 seconds, turn over then 30 seconds more, etc. until crisp enough to grind up. Repeat for all lavash rectangles.
  2. Finely grind the crisped lavash (cooled) in food processor.
  3. Measure out 1 ¼ cup ground lavash; ¼ cup granulated Pyure; and 1 tsp maple flavoring. This will yield just over 1 ¼ cup “graham cracker” crumbs.
