Nanaimo Bars - Kosher for Passover

This is the kosher for Passover version of this popular Northwest cookie. While making the original version, I realize that the custard powder for the filling is kosher for Passover. I wonder with what I can substitute the graham cracker crumbs and decide to try a kosher for Passover breakfast cereal. Since the base is so sweet, it may be possible to use matzoh meal without any noticeable difference in taste.

I'm feeling a bit tired so will ask the reader to refer to the original version of Nanaimo Bars for the step-by-step instructions. I'll list the substituted ingredients below.

Kosher Status: Parve
Number of servings: 96 small cookies, 36 bars
Main Ingredient(s): Chocolate Chips
