Oatmeal PieI love this pie. It is one of my very favorites. There is something about the nuts, oats and coconut combined that gives it such a great taste.

3 eggs, beaten(I beat them with a wire whisk)
1 cup light corn syrup
4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 cup rolled oats (the old-fashioned kind)
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup coconut
1/2 cup walnuts (can use pecans)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 (9 inch) deep dish pie crust
Beat eggs with whisk.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well with spoon.  Pour into pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, increase heat to 375 and bake for 10 more minutes.  Let cool before cutting. Enjoy!

  1. food look good yummy

  2. Would this work okay with “Quick Oats”( the 1 min kind) instead of old fashioned ( the 5 min kind) of oatmeal? I accidentally bought the minute type which is still a step up from instant….

    • I have not tried it with quick oats.

    • My Aunt Mary made this pie all the time! (She would have been 115 this year.) And she always used the quick oats. I don’t think it really matters what the ‘solids’ are that you add, since this is basically a ‘poor man’s’ pecan pie; as long as you have enough bulk to fill the shell. As to the questions about the sugar/syrup substitutions, you’ll probably lose a little in the texture of the pie if you don’t use a thick syrup of some type. Just my opinion as a former baker–but, then we can’t be afraid to experiment!

  3. I was admittedly a little leery of this pie, but it is a new favorite! So easy and delicious!!

  4. Can you use honey instead of corn syrup?

  5. Do you happen to have a recipe for oatmeal cake or fruit cocktail cake? My mother made both & they were so good but I never got her recipe.

    • There is a recipe for Oatmeal cake listed under cakes, Carol. Just click on the photo on the right hand side of the blog that says Candy, Cakes and Cookies.

    • fruit cocktail cake is also called ugly cake ..I found reciepe on line and on a bag of coconut..my grandmother used to make it all the time

  6. If it wasn’t 2am I would make it right now

  7. oh my goodness..never heard of this pie but..it is wonderful..made one this morning wow is all I can say ..warm pie and hot coffee ..heaven

  8. Hi there….I’m planning on making this beautiful pie for Thanksgiving…but Germany doesn’t have corn syrup. So I’ve decided to use honey…will that change the taste of this pie??

    • I have never tried it with honey, Jessica.

    • Substitute for Corn Syrup
      For each cup of light corn syrup in a recipe, substitute 1 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup water. For each cup of dark corn syrup, substitute 1 cup of packed brown sugar and 1/4 cup water.
      This was found on Taste of Home website

    • Jessica, you can use golden syrup. ;)

    • You should be able to make your own syrup…look it up online or you can use Kandis with a little water. It should taste better than honey in this recipe.

  9. I found this same recipe when my youngest son was just a toddler! Only it was called mock pecan pie! I’m so glad you posted this recipe!

  10. Can’t have coconut, can it be left out?

  11. I can see some apples or cranberries in that pie too

  12. I made this for the first time today.. in observance of “National Pie Day” and let me tell you, it didn’t disappoint! Family-tested and approved! Try it, you’ll love it too.

  13. Just made this, went back to take a pic and it was GONE lol. I left out the cocnut, soaked some raisins in a lil rum, diced a granny smith and added those. All I can say is YUM-O! Thank you so much for sharing your kitchen with us :)

  14. It is so good! I didn’t have any nuts, and ran out of vanilla. So I added some vanilla pudding mix, and a little milk. It was sooo good! My husband stole the pie and took it to work on me!

  17. Can’t wait to try this. Thanks for sharing on the Blog Hop!

  18. sounds good. im going to try it with honey and no coconut. might put in raisins. i enjoy your site.good job.

  19. This pie is awesome I just made it, so easy my husband says it is great , Thanks

  20. Hi, I love to cook, this looks really good. I am enjoying watching your recipes on face book, I plan on using some of them. Thanks for sharing.

  21. How about apples or applesauce instead of the corn syrup?

  22. I’m going to make this tomorrow night for a dinner party, but I might try mashing up some fruit (possibly blueberries) into the mix! Has anyone tried this before?

  23. Judy, do you use regular oats or can you use quick cooking Quacker brand oats (not microwave instant oats)

  24. Do you think you could leave out coconut? Hubby can’t have it =:( Could I sub something else?

  25. Have you ever tried adding chocolate chips?

  26. Looks yummy! I’ve never even heard of it! Seems like it would be perfect for this time of the year too.

  27. Made this today! Had to leave out the nuts because my hubby doesn’t like them :<, but even so, it was fabulous!!!!! I'd never heard of it before, but I sure will make it often now!!!

  28. None of us like oatmeal and I think it’s the texture we don’t like. I try to use it in meatloaf and hamburgers and things like that because it’s soooo good for you. But this sounds soooooo good! I just wonder what you could use instead of corn syrup because that would run my blood sugar up sky high. :) I could use spenda in place of the sugar I think. lol

  29. I haven’t had oatmeal pie in a long time. I *pinned* this one and will HAVE to make it soon. It looks sooo delicious! Thanks – enjoy your weekend.

  30. This looks really good. I’ve never heard of oatmeal pie before so I’m very intrigued and will definitely be making soon. Thanks Judy!

  31. Looks just the food for this time of year. Have a good week-end judy. Take care Yvonne.
