Default Graham cracker crust substitute

Hello ladies,

My husband and I are on our 3 week of ph2 and we are craving key lime pie really bad. We tried the SBD recipe with the egg white bottom and I didn't like it. The only other crust I've seen was a almond flour one or pecan one, but my husband is allergic to nuts. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Maybe soy flour or whole wheat flour??? You can make a key lime splenda cheese cake with no crust also. The cheesecake texture holds the pie together. Maybe just try to make a key lime crustless pie so that you get the flavor but no crust...it would be like a pudding.

How about using Fiber One cereal (whirled in a blender/food processor to a crumb consistency) for the graham cracker crumbs?
Or would that be too many carbs, still?

I remember awhile back someone using wheatgerm for a pie crust. I never tried it myself but she said that it was really good. You can find the wheat germ in the cereal aisle.

I make a pretty yummy pie crust with Fiber One, SmartBalance margarine and Splenda. Just blend it all together in a food processor and pat gently into a pie pan. It's good with either a baked or a refrigerated filling. I also use this as a topping for apple crisp.
