Directions for Fody's Key Lime Cheesecake Bars with Gluten-Free Granola Crust
Pre-heat oven to 300F and line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper.
For Gluten-Free Crust: In a food processor, combine almond flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and crumbled Fody Almond Coconut Snack Bars. Pulse until mixture is fine.
Add melted butter to the food processor bowl, continuing to mix gently until mixture is wet. Pour into the baking dish, pressing down evenly + gently until the bottom of the pan is covered in the crust.

Pour filling into the baking dish and use a silicone spatula to evenly smooth out.
