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.
Easy 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.
How to Make the Best Oatmeal Pie Recipe
- Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Oatmeal Pie: One 9 inch deep dish pie shell, quick cooking or old fashioned oats, all purpose flour, butter, chopped pecans (or walnuts) dark brown sugar, dark corn syrup, all purpose flour, large eggs, sweetened flaked coconut, vanilla extract, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and whipped cream for serving.
- Kitchen tools you’ll need: One 9 inch deep dish pie shell, measuring cups and spoons, medium bowl, small bowl and whisk.
- You can use my homemade flaky pie crust recipe for this pie, or refrigerated crusts as well as a quality 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 the crust 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.
- You can serve Oatmeal Pie with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
- This pie can be stored chilled or at room temperature for up to 3 days in an airtight container.
