I want to try making a homemade peanut butter cup recipe but it calls for graham crackers and I'd like to find a substitute. I know I could make my own but that is way more trouble than I'm willing to go to for this particular recipe. So...anyone know of a good substitute for graham crackers?

All the recipes I've found call for graham crackers...that's the sort of thing I'm looking for, though, a flour-type thing instead of a cracker. Please post your recipee<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

Is the recipe calling for crushed graham crackers as a topping or as a bottom crust? Substitute with a crumb topping- a mixture of flour (any kind will work), oil (butter, coconut oil, etc) and brown sugar. I'm not sure of exact proportions, but try looking up "crumb topping" on allrecipes.com or similar.

What about ground dried coconut to make a crust?

It's not a crust, it's mixed in to give it the right texture.

what's the problem with graham crackers, exactly? could you use some from a natural foods store? our Whole Foods carries a bunch of different kinds, with varying sweetness/sweetners.
