Oatmeal Breakfast Pie

Pie for breakfast? Serve me a slice!!! These Baked Oatmeal Snack Bars are one of my most popular recipes (and also one of my oldest!). I decided to tweak an old favorite, and turned the bars into a delicious breakfast pie. A few of the comments on my original recipe said the bars were a bit too gummy, so this version uses oat flour and a little less milk to make the texture a bit less like a baked oatmeal, and more like a granola bar. Who doesn’t love things in pie shape?!

Oat flour is super easy to make. Just take one cup of Quaker Old Fashioned Rolled Oats and send them through a food processor for about 10-15 seconds.

The result is a coarse whole grain flour you can use for baking or creamy porridges.

This recipe couldn’t be easier to assemble. It’s one of those “mix dry, mix wet, mix together” combos.

So, mix your dry ingredients together. I chose pecans, sunflower seeds, raisins, and dark chocolate and cinnamon chips for my mix-ins this time, to pack the bars with healthy fats and a bit of sweet. You can use whatever nuts, seeds, and dried fruit you have on hand – just follow the proportions in the recipe : )

Next whisk together the egg, milk, and vanilla.

And then pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together.

Grease a nine-inch pie dish with butter or cooking spray.

And then pour the mixture into the dish. You’ll want to press it down with a spatula to ensure it all sticks together.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until the top is crispy and the middle is set.

This pie makes a great breakfast, brunch dish, snack, or even a dessert with a little ice cream on the side.

And if your tastebuds are anything like mine, you’ll want to add some SunButter “frosting!” (Coconut whipped cream would also be divine.)
