RECIPE: Amish Oatmeal Pie

When I first stumbled across a recipe for Oatmeal Pie, I was pretty skeptical about how it would taste. There's a variation of this dessert in almost every Amish cookbook I've come across, though, so I figured it must be reasonably palatable! Everyone in my family loved it, and seeing as how it calls for very inexpensive ingredients that are pantry staples, I was happy to add it to my repertoire of Tightwad Desserts :) The raisins and coconut are optional but delicious additions to this dish.

Pastry for a single crust 9" pie 

1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup honey or corn syrup
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup coconut

Roll out pie crust and fit into pie plate.

In a medium bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, eggs, honey, and oats. Stir until well combined. Fold in raisins and coconut. Pour filling into prepared pie crust. Bake at 375F for 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown.

I shared this recipe at Tasty Tuesday, the GCC Recipe Swap, Friday Favorites, and Sweets for a Saturday.


  1. This sounds really interesting. As you say, the idea of oats in a pie sounds different, but it sure looks good! And how wonderful that the oats make it kind of good for you too! I'll be giving this a try!!

  2. Great fall recipe! This looks delicious!

    Thanks for linking up for Friday Favorites!

  4. My husband loves Oatmeal pie. I was happy to find a recipe.

  5. just returned from Pennsylvania Dutch country and sampled my first oatmeal pie. It was really special. They told me they add a bit of almond extract. I am about to put my first one in the oven.

  6. Hope yours turned out great! I'll have to try it with the almond extract sometime :)

  7. Thanks for posting. I loved the oatmeal pie we would get from an Amish bakery stand near my sisters house in Ohio. It's something I've never seen anywhere else, but the picture you have looks just like it. I can't wait to try it out, it might be my favorite type of pie!

  8. I hope it tastes just like the one you remember! It really is so easy to make.
