For Crust: Preheat oven to 350. Using on/off turns, blend granola in processor until coarsely ground. Transfer granola to medium bowl. Mix in graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar.

Personal Notes:
This is an amazing key lime pie. I have never used granola in the crust. I double the graham cracker crumbs, add 1 tsp cinnamon and add butter until it gets to the texture it needs to be to stick together in a pie crust.

I usually use fresh limes, but bottled key lime juice will also work and is easier. This pie usually gets amazing reviews!!
