Recipe by velorutionista

A great alternative to your ordinary graham cracker crust. Not too sweet, not too crumbly!

I got a similar version elsewhere that used 3 T butter and 1 tsp stevia (instead of sugar to make it sugar free). It turned out good, for a gluten free crust. I used it in pumpkin pie. I will keep your version and try it with the extra butter next time, to see if it bakes up firmer.
