So Good, Almost No Fat Pie (or Cheesecake) Crust!!

What you need: 

*This was requested by someone on here a few months ago who asked for a way to make pie crust when you're out of flour. 2 cups cereal, ground to a breadcrumb-like consistency in blender
1 tablespoon vegan margarine
3 tablespoons applesauce (you could use extra margarine for this, i guess)
1/4- 1/3 cup sugar
1-2 teaspoons cinnamon

What you do: 

Grind the cereal in blender. Melt margarine, stir into applesauce. add sugar and cinnamon, then add to cereal. Press into a 9x9 pie pan. Fill with Pie ingredients, bake for about 20 minutes at 375 degrees. Enjoy!

Is the cereal to be measured before it is ground up? or is 2 cups the amount of ground cereal needed?

Also, if your cereal is fortified with extra vitamins, it may be worth looking into the source of those ingredients. I guess added D3 is often derived from sheep's wool.  ???


ooo good idea! i always feel so bad about pie crusts because there's so much fat. yay for better pie crust!
