Oatmeal Nut Pie

Oh. My. Goodness!

It’s that time of year when all I want to do is bake.

Give me all the sweet stuff!

And because we are nearing the holidays {I’m not ready}, I thought maybe I should start posting some pie recipes, maybe even do a tutorial or two.

{I need to get brave}

I love making pie! I love making the crust…mmmmm and maybe I make a batch or two extra just for “lady fingers”. My kids and I can devour them in no time. You must be real quick to be able to sneak one out from under us.

This pie is probably my favorite pie…right up there with Strawberry Rhubarb.

So oatmeal pie has been described as the ‘poor man’s pecan pie’.  It is full of a delicious filling containing coconut, walnuts, and of course oatmeal.

My suggestion is that you make 2.  Share one. Hide the other one. Wake up when everyone else is sleeping. Heat it up and add a couple scoops of ice cream. Eat it out of the pan with a fork. And enjoy every last bite!

That’s just my suggestion. {make sure to wash the pan and fork… hide the evidence. They’ll never forgive you} You can thank me later.

Oatmeal Nut Pie


  • 1 cup light karo syrup
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup coconut
  • 1 cup oatmeal ( I use quick oats)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Combine ingredients in order given.
  2. Pour into an unbaked 9″ pie shell.
  3. Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes or until set.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Or eat cold. It’s good no matter how you serve it.


Much love,
