2bleu's Key Lime Pie Bars

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

We've taken several Key Lime pie recipe's, and adapted them to fit our tastes, it's less tart, but still tangy. Does not include 4 hr chill time. You can use regular sugar and regular sweetened condensed milk if you like.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. CRUST: Preheat oven to 350°F Blend granola and almonds in a food processor until coarsely ground. Add graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar. Mix to blend well. Press the mixture (save 1/4 cup of crumbs for a deco topping, if desired) into a 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes, until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool.
  2. BOTTOM LAYER: Mix well (using a blender, food processor, or hand mixer) all bottom layer ingredients to blend. Pour into the pie crust. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until mixture sets. Cool to room temperature.
  3. TOP LAYER: Mix top layer ingredients in a mixing bowl. Pour over the cooled baked layer spreading out evenly and smooth over the top. Cover and refrigerate, at least 4 hours. If you saved some graham cracker/granola topping, sprinkle over top just before serving.

Made for hubby's b-day, this was a winner with everyone! Based on other reviews, I made the following changes: CRUST: no sweetener added. BOTTOM LAYER: prepared as directed TOP LAYER: 1/2 c. key lime juice and about 12 oz. sweetened condensed milk, no vanilla.

This created the perfect mix of sweet/tart for us. I did use fresh key limes, 1 small bag provided all the juice I needed. LOVE the crust & that this recipe is like a key lime pie & cheesecake in one. Thanks so much for posting--it's a keeper!!!

This was a great dessert! Very sweet though, I want to try it without the Splenda next time. However, even my mom (who claimed to not like Key Lime), loved this.

These bars made a yummy dessert! They are very rich - the lime flavor really shines through but they are also very sweet. This is a cross between a cheesecake and a keylime pie - and I love both - and I really enjoyed these bars! Thanks for posting the recipe!
