This Oatmeal Pie is my take on an old fashioned pie recipe that's super simple to make. You can serve it chilled, warm or at room temperature with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Oatmeal Pie Recipe
If you're a fan of oatmeal cookies, you'll love the flavor of this homemade oatmeal pie. The filling is embellished with toasted nuts and coconut, along with oatmeal to round-out the flavor profile. You can make the crust from scratch or use a deep dish frozen pie crust to expedite preparation.
Helpful Tips for Making Oatmeal Pie
- You can use my homemade flaky pie crust recipe for this pie, or refrigerated crusts as well as a frozen pie crust. Should you choose to use a refrigerated pie crust, I highly recommend using both crusts, rolled together to form one thicker more homemade-like crust. This will hold up to the baking time better.
- If using a frozen deep dish pie crust, there's no need to thaw it first. Simply mix up the filling, fill it and bake.
- This recipe uses quick cooking or old fashioned oats, not instant.
- You can omit the coconut in this recipe with no other adjustments needed.
- It's best to allow this pie to cool completely before cutting. If you become impatient, as I have before, just note that some of the liquid from the filling will not be set if you cut the pie while warm. This isn't the end of the world by any means, but I have found it's better to cool, then reheat by the piece if you want to serve it warm.
- This pie can be stored chilled or at room temperate for up to 3 days in an airtight container.

- To make the pie: Press prepared pie crust into a deep dish pie pan and crimp edges. If using frozen, no need to thaw.
- In a medium size bowl, use a whisk to sift together oats, coconut, brown sugar, nuts, flour, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and allspice.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together corn syrup, butter, eggs and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients mixing until fully moistened. Pour filling into crust.
