Graham Cracker Crust (adapted from Happy Herbivore)
2.5 cups whole wheat graham crackers
7 tablespoons applesauce
1/3 cup toasted slivered almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease an 8-inch springform pan or a comparable shallow pie dish and set aside.
Place graham crackers and slivered almonds into a food processor and pulse until they resemble bread crumbs or a heavy sand-like consistency. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and whisk in cinnamon. Add applesauce and stir until large chunks of graham crackers form. Add more applesauce if necessary, but make sure the mixture does not become too wet or soggy (this happened to me very quickly the first time I made this crust). Continue to stir until everything is evenly wet.
Press mixture into the pan or pie dish to form a crust along the base and edges. Bake for 10 minutes, until just crisp and beginning to brown. Remove from oven and allow to completely cool before using.
