    1. Kim, I would suggest old-fashioned oats. Ground almonds are great but if that doesn’t work for you, try the oats. Here’s how:
      lightly toast 1/2 cup oats, 325 degree preheart oven for up to 10 minutes
      Ground the oats just slightly in a blender, being sure not to turn into flour.
      That’s it. You’ll still get a wonderful taste without the nuts. Let us know how you like the reecipe. 🙂

  1. Do you have a suggestion for a substitute anytime tree nuts or nut milks are called for? My son is allergic to tree nuts. Specifically, I’m asking about the walnut crust for the no bake cheesecake. Thanks!

    1. Emily, For nut milks try coconut milk, specifically vanilla. For nuts, try ground flax seeds or old-fashioned oats. 🙂

  2. Hi Gale, What size baking dish did you use? The one I used was 6×6 square Pyrex. Also my filling is quite a bit lighter than yours. Filling tasted really good.

    1. Hi Linda, The one in the photo was made in an 8-inch x 8-inch pan. Also, when this recipe was made we used dark chocolate cocoa powder. 🙂

  3. Thank you Gale. I thought that’s what was used based on the 16 servings and I started with an 8×8 pan but there wasn’t enough crust to cover the bottom. Did I do something wrong?

    1. Linda, Probably not. I’m really good at spreading the crumbs…on the thin side, but that’s what I like. Feel free to use a small pan for a slightly thicker crust. 🙂

  4. I made the receipe exactly as written but was unable to “cut” squares. The cheesecake didn’t stay formed – was close to a pudding consistency. What did I do wrong?

    1. Oh no! I’m sorry your cheesecakes didn’t turn out, Mary! Instead of the refrigerator, trying putting the cheesecake in the freezer before slicing. You can also reduce the amount of Greek yogurt. Hope this helps!
