when i made my peanut butter bars, i subsitituted crushed Rice Chexs for the graham crackers, but you do have to add sugar to it since graham crackers have sugar in it, just do it to taste and use a few Tbsp. or margarine pat into the pan and cook the same way that you would if you did a graham crust.

My sister used crushed rice chex as a substitute in your normal graham cracker crust this year, and it was pretty good. It looked like a normal crust and tasted good too. I didn't think to ask her if she added more sugar etc., but there were definitely no complaints!
I stumbled upon a different way to make pie crust last week. I was making a cheesecake and didn't want to go to all the trouble of making a GF flour crust and didn't want to make a plain nut crust. I used walnuts, pecans, 4 Health Valley Rice Bran crackers and a handful of Mesa Sunrise cereal. I ground it up (not a fine as I should have because I couldn't find part of my food processor and had to do it in the blender!), added a little honey to bind it and pressed it into the pie plate. I just did crust on the bottom and lined the edge with pecans. I baked it for about 10 minutes, let it cool and added my filling. Everyone loved it. It had a nice flavor and just the right amount of chewiness.
