"This has the TASTE and the TEXTURE of a graham cracker crust, but without the fat and calories and with necessary fiber. It's absolutely delish! Feel free to use more cereal if you prefer thicker crusts. The recipe is more than EASILY adaptable! Use for cheesecakes, pies, quiches, whatever requires a crumb crust!"

"It was absolutely wonderful! I used this crust, somewhat skeptically, for a very rich cheesecake. It made for a wonderful contrast from the cheesecake, and made it not so sweet! I absolutely love this crust and will definitely be using it more often! Thanks so much for the recipe! "
"This is a healthy crust but it does NOT taste like graham cracker crust. I put the bran flakes into the blender and got great crumbs. I added some splenda to the crumbs. This crust was for a cheesecake and I would not use it for a cheesecake again. I will try it again for a savory pie."
"This is such a great idea! A healthy, lowfat, delicious pie crust from ingredients I already had on hand?!? It's too good to be true! The only complaint I had was that I could not get the All-Bran to a powder consistency in a plastic bag; I ended up transferring it to a food processor to get the desired consistency. Then, instead of water I used Torani Sugar Free White Chocolate syrup, which gave the All-Bran a really good flavor. Thanks for the idea!"
"Well, it worked ok as a crust as it held the stuff in and was pretty tasty. (I pre-baked it and then sliced a bannana on top, added some fat free/sugar free chocolate pudding, and then a layer of fat free cool-whip.) But I certainly would not say that it has the taste of a graham cracker crust. As long as you are not expecting it to be the same, it is pretty good."
