I use crumbs for macarons and other desserts a lot. Crumbs give interesting texture and taste to the dessert.  Gluten free crumbs are very hard to find in the store. That’s why I’ve decided to make my own. And today I am sharing this recipe with you.

Where to use gluten free crumbs

  • Macarons. Macarons are gluten free cookies, and I am using crumbs for toppings or fillings. 
  • Cheesecakes. Use crumbs to make gluten free crumbs base for cheesecakes. 
  • Mousse cakes. For a cake layer in the mouse cakes 
  • Ice cream. As topping for ice cream.

Ingredients nedded

  • gluten free flour. If you are going to use crumbs for gluten free desserts, use gluten free flour. I used Bob’s Red Mill gluten free flour for this recipe. 
  • light brown sugar
  • unsalted butter
  • salt

How to make gluten free Crumbs

Preheat oven to 300oF. Line baking sheet pan with parchment paper or Silpat mat.

Melt unsalted butter. In the mixing bowl stir together flour, sugar, and salt. 

Add melted butter and whisk with a fork or spatula until clumps form. 

Transfer mixture into prepared baking sheet pan.

Bake for 10-15 minutes, breaking them up occasionally. The crumbs should be light brown. They should be still slightly moist to the touch. They will dry and harder as they cool. 

Let the crumbs cool completely before eating or using for macarons or other desserts. They can melt ganache or buttercream if they are still warm.

How to store 

Store crumbs in air-tight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. I do not recommend storing crumbs in the refrigerator or freezer as they may become moist.
