Honey Bunches Of Oats Pie Crust

I received compensation for this post, however all opinions are mine alone.

My favorite breakfast cereal is Honey Bunches of Oats; I like that it’s sweet but not too sweet, and kinda crunchy. I had never considered using it for baking or cooking until someone asked for a pie, and I had nothing to make a crust. I have used other cookies, crackers, and cereals to make cold-set pie crusts in the past, but not Honey Bunches of Oats. I decided I would give it a try, and see if it worked and how it tasted.

I used my standard measurements for dry ingredients for a deep dish pie crust to calculate how much Honey Bunches of Oats and butter to use. I’ve heard some people mix sugar into this type of pie crust, but I think the cereal is sweet enough.
