Easy 3-Ingredient Low-Fat Graham Cracker Crust
posted October 9, 2015 by Gina
Making a low-fat graham cracker crust is SO easy to do, using just 3 ingredients (plus water), you’ll never buy a pre-made one again. You can use regular graham crackers, gluten-free, or even chocolate like I did here. Once made, you can fill it with anything your heart desires.
Ideas: No-bake cheesecake, pumpkin no-bake cheesecake, peanut butter pie, yogurt pie, coconut cream pie… the list goes on. Here’s how easy it is to do.
- 6 sheets graham crackers (3.5 oz total)*
- 2 tbsp raw sugar
- 3 tbsp cold whipped butter
*Use gluten-free graham crackers to make this gluten-free.
Step 1 – Preheat oven to 375°F. Place all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse a few times. Add 1 tbsp water and pulse a few more times until it has a texture of coarse meal.
Step 2 – Press into an 8-inch pie dish making the crust about 1/8-inch thick evenly all around and up the sides.
Step 3 – Refrigerate the crust for 30 minutes before you bake it, this will help prevent crumbling when you want to serve it.
Step 4 – Bake until the edges are golden, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the crust cool on a wire rack, before filling.
