Oatmeal “pie”

Posted on

I make this pie when I have oven space and need a dessert.  It’s quite sweet, so a little can go a long way, especially if it’s served with a fruit compote.  This oatmeal pie isn’t a Home Front recipe, but it’s in the same spirit – it replaces something expensive and hard to come by with oatmeal and coconut.

The original recipe for this pie is here, but I’ve had to modify it for obvious reasons.  I don’t use a pie crust at all, but I suppose you could use a GF one.

Melt 1/3 c margarine with 1/4 c golden syrup.  Beat in 1/2 c sugar.  When the mixture is cool enough to touch, beat in two eggs and then 1 c oatmeal and 1/2 c unsweetened dried coconut.  Dump into a greased pie dish and bake at 375 F/ 190 C/ Gas Mark 5.

To serve, drizzle with cream or serve with fruit.  If you don’t have coconut, it’s fine to leave it out.
