Expert Tips

  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free.
  • No food processor? Place cereal in food storage plastic bag; crush finely with rolling pin or meat mallet. Use 2 1/2 cups (625 mL) cereal to make 1 cup (250 mL) of crumbs. Be sure the crumbs are finely crushed; large particles make it difficult to press mixture into pie plate.
  • The butter can be replaced with 1/4 cup (50 mL) vegan vegetable oil spread stick, melted.
