Maple Oatmeal Pie

in Desserts

So…I may have to apologize for this recipe. I understand that a lot of you have probably made New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, go on a diet, eat healthier, etc. And since it’s still the first week of January, you may still actually be sticking to these lofty ideals. You probably don’t want to be reading about gooey pies made from butter and honey. Yes, there’s also some oatmeal, but even I am not going to try and act like that in any way raises the nutritional value. This is a gooey pie, made from butter and honey, with a little oatmeal to bind it all together. I’ll understand if you have to leave the site now.

See…Adrianna and I were both sent this cookbook, The Green Market Baking Book, which I received as soon as I got home from the holidays. It’s super cute, it even has a ribbon bookmark attached. For future reference, if I ever write my own cookbook, I’m going to make sure it has a ribbon bookmark attached. Irresistible cuteness. As I was flipping through the fun recipes I stumbled upon oatmeal pie, and was consumed with the urge to make it.

Quick note – this pie was supposed to be made using a standard pie plate. However, mine seems to have evaporated while I was out of town . I was so determined to make oatmeal pie that I tore my kitchen apart looking for it. This is what my kitchen floor looks like when I pull everything out of the oven storage cabinet. And in case you’re wondering…yes that oven is being held up with wooden wedges. Please don’t ask.

Luckily this recipe is so simple that it’s pretty hard to mess up. I made this pie in a casserole dish and it turned out just perfect.  Again – we’re talking about butter and honey. Regardless of what you use, it’ll all work out fine.

Adapted from the Green Market Baking Book

I tweaked this recipe quite a bit from the original by adding in the maple syrup and subtracting the nuts, although if you want to sprinkle some crushed nuts over the top of the pie before you bake it I think the crunch would be a nice texture to add in. The maple syrup is an absolute must though – please don’t leave it out.

1 unbaked pie shell
¼ cup butter
1 cup honey
¼ cup maple syrup
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 cup uncooked oatmeal

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream the butter in a large bowl. Continue beating and slowly add in the honey. Add the cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Beat in the eggs one at a time until everything is combined. Stir in the oatmeal and pour the mixture into the pie shell.

Bake for 50 minutes or until the pie is set.

I love maple. I love oatmeal. I love pie.

This is perfect!

Just one question, though — does it taste a whole lot like honey? I have a weird honey aversion. Maybe I could change the honey/maple syrup ratio?

I didn’t pick up a strong honey flavor after it baked, but if you really aren’t a fan then i would try substituting a light corn syrup for the honey. Maple syrup might not be thick enough…

Yummy! Maybe just a small bite won’t throw me off too much. I could take the rest to my skinny neighbor. ; )

While I have more recently made a conscious effort to be better to my body, my focus was mostly on eating less meat and more vegetables. I didn’t say anything about less butter, honey and oatmeal :)

Nice! It’s always good to be specific, haha

That looks delicious!! I myself only just got an actual pie plate recently, so perhaps I shall try this one out soon!

You know, I’m kind of a dessert snob. I see a lot of desserts on blogs and I don’t even think they’re worth trying because I’m not convinced the person posting them truly loves desserts. But when you empty out your cabinet for a pie pan, don’t find one, and you use a regular pan instead? Now THAT’S a person who knows their desserts! :)

Thanks for that superb compliment! :)

This is similar to the baked oatmeal that I make for my daughter except there isn’t a crust. This recipe looks very tasty! I’m adding it to my “recipes to try” list.

Oh my…do you think if I took one extra walk around the block it would negate any ill effects on my hips? I think so. Also, as far as a crunchy top, I’m toying with the idea of granola. Thoughts?

Does it matter what type of oatmeal you use: Rolled or quick-cooking?

Reply

Caroline January 10, 2011 at 8:18 am

I used rolled, but I’m pretty sure that both would work

Reply

Kat January 9, 2011 at 3:17 pm

Ooo, this is like a crumble inside of a pie! The best of both worlds. Some fruit would be a nice little addition! :)

Becky January 9, 2011 at 9:19 pm

i’ve never had this before, but it looks delish. which type of oatmeal do you use? quick oats or the regular kind? :)

Reply

Caroline January 10, 2011 at 8:18 am

I used rolled oats, although I think either would work. The oatmeal just needs to absorb the honey mixture, so I think either is a viable option.

Oh my, this looks incredible. I cannot wait to try it!
