  3. Oatmeal Nut Pie Recipe

Pie is cozy right? I mean, don’t get me wrong: pie is delicious no matter the season. In the fall, it’s not the tradition to bake fruit pies, besides apple that is. Instead we opt for those pies with richer ingredients. The holiday season is fast approaching and for many that means pies of the pumpkin and pecan variety. But a lesser known and equally delicious pie is on my radar – and should be on yours too! My grandma’s oatmeal nut pie is a family favorite.

I’m going to describe this pie as a cousin to pecan but really it’s equally just as good. Oatmeal and nuts give a hearty filling while a few simple spices flavor just the right amount. Whether for a holiday or a weekday, this will be a new favorite.

Oatmeal Nut Pie

5 from 1 vote
With toasted walnuts and all kinds of fall spices, this oatmeal nut pie is a unique homestyle pie. It’s the perfect dessert to bake this autumn!
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 40 minutes
Servings 12 servings


  • 1 prepared 9-inch pie crust
  • 4 tbsp melted butter slightly cooled
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • cup unsweetened coconut
  • cup quick (instant) oatmeal
  • cup chopped toasted walnuts


For the pie filling

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Prepare walnuts by placing them on a baking sheet in an even layer. Place in oven and toast 8-10 minutes until fragrant and browned. Remove from oven and cool. Chop into small pieces and set aside.
  • Combine the butter and sugar.
  • Add the salt, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Whisk in the eggs, milk, coconut, oatmeal, and walnuts.
  • Pour the filling into a prepared 9-inch pie shell and bake in the preheated oven until the edges are set and the middle jiggles slightly, 40-60 minutes. The crust may brown quicker than the pie. After 35 minutes, start checking the crust. Usually, the crust needs to be covered for the remaining bake time.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for at least 4 hours.
  • This is best served with freshly whipped cream: 1 cup heavy cream, 1 tablespoon sugar, and ½ teaspoon vanilla. Whip until soft peaks and pile high on each piece of pie!
