Keto Graham Cracker Crust
When it comes to keto baking staples, my favorite recipes to make are chocolate chips, maple syrup, and this keto graham cracker crust.
If I had to pick a favorite kind of dessert to make, it will always be on with a sweet and buttery crust. As someone who loves textures and flavors, I love a thick crust filled with a creamy or fluffy filling. This means that cheesecake, no bake tarts, and pies are always made in my kitchen.
Since going keto, I’ve been on a mission to create a simple and delicious pie crust. I do have simple almond flour crust, but I prefer those for savory recipes or a fancy tart. Instead, I wanted something that was perfect for a no bake dessert. Before going keto, I’d always make a graham cracker crust, so I had to give it a low carb makeover!
I’ve been meaning to share a keto graham cracker crust for quite some time. It’s been my go-to crust whenever I need to whip up a no bake dessert, a cheesecake, or even a fabulous pie! It takes seconds to prep and needs just 3 ingredients!
Now, this crust may look incredibly fancy, but I promise you, it is virtually foolproof. No sugar and no grains are needed, but you’d never tell. The texture is thick, crumbly, and beautifully buttery. It’s sweet and the flavor can easily be changed, depending on what cookie you use!
As someone who loves graham crackers but can’t enjoy them because they aren’t keto, being able to make my own crust substitute has been a game changer!
How do you make a keto graham cracker crust?
- Cookies– You want to use a mild flavored cookie, similar to a traditional graham cracker. I prefer to use either peanut butter cookies or shortbread cookies.
- Granulated sweetener of choice– I used allulose, but erythritol, and monk fruit sweetener can be used.
- Butter– Unsalted and melted butter.
Start by adding your cookies into a high speed blender or food processor. Blend very well, until fine crumbs remain. Now, transfer into a large mixing bowl. Add your granulated sweetener and melted butter and whisk together, until combined and a texture similar to wet sand.
Now, transfer into an 8 or 9-inch pie dish and refrigerate for at least an hour, to firm up.
Tips to make the best low carb graham cracker crust
- If you’d like a crispy and firm crust, bake it for 10-15 minutes at 180C/350F. Let it cool completely, before filling.
- You can use any cookie you like. Avoid ones that have chocolate chips or dried fruit/nuts mixed in. I like using chocolate cookies when making chocolate-inspired desserts.
- Make sure your butter is melted, otherwise there will be chunks of butter throughout.
- This crust can be used for individual desserts, like cheesecake cupcakes.
Storing and freezing graham cracker crust
- To store: Graham cracker crust can be stored in the refrigerator, covered. It will keep well for at least 4 weeks.
- To freeze: Place the crust in a shallow container (or in the pie tin itself!) and ensure it is completely covered. Place it in the freezer and it will keep well frozen for up to 6 months. Thaw it overnight in the refrigerator before using it.

Huh??? Graham Crackers are packed with Carbohydrates.
Graham cracker recipe is made of extreme high-carb ingredients, including all-purpose flour and sweetener including wheat flour, brown sugar, and honey.
Why on earth would you imagine this is a suitable keto ingredient? Do you even understand what low carb means?
You’ve clearly not read the post or the ingredient list whatsoever. What an absolutely ridiculous comment.
You are right. Apparently the original poster doesn’t realize there is a hyper link to make the KETO shortbread cookies and you are not recommending to use regular non KETO shortbread cookies. It’s amazing how so many people still don’t know how to use the internet. This was very easy to make if you can read and follow directions.
Hey KAREN!!! If you read the actual recipe, you would see that it is in fact KETO/LOW CARB!!!! It says sees notes so what should you do SEE NOTES and not act like a KAREN and jump down someone’s throat. Clearly you don’t understand how to read.
Oh my god. This crust is amazing. I made it with the keto pumpkin cheesecake, and it had the crunch, chew, and texture of crust! It made my Thanksgiving. Thank you for this recipe. It’s delicious.
In your link to “2 tablespoon granulated sweetener of choice” it shows a recipe for keto brown sugar. Is this what will make the graham crackers taste more like the real thing? I am going to make your cheesecake today and really wanted that graham cracker taste for my non keto hubby for Valentines Day treat.
Yes it is 🙂
