This pie is exactly like a pecan pie with the exception that it has oatmeal in it, rather than pecans. During baking, the oatmeal forms a chewy, "nutty" crust on top For a delicious variation, try the chocolate version. Just substitute 1/4 cup cocoa for the spices; this makes it taste very fudgy.

This is absolutely delicious!!! I did add 1/4 tsp of vanilla 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and 1/4 cup of brown sugar. I also sprinked some chopped pecans on top. The pie came out picture perfect. My children and husband finished it off in one night. I have been looking for this recipie since 1991 after having it at a restaurant in Iowa City. This was exactly like it. Thanks so much for sharing. I will definitely make it again. Read More

I thought this recipe was nothing like the oatmeal pie I have enjoyed at Mondo's in Iowa City. The filling was too eggy and a little too runny. I took out one egg 1/4 c. of the corn syrup and then added 1/4 c. of brown sugar. Read More

This tastes like a combination of pecan pie and shoo-fly pie. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out perfectly - both times I made it. I cheat and use the Pillsbury pie crust from the dairy case. I had my doubts the first time I made it because the filling seemed runny - but it baked woderfully. This is super easy to put together and I usually have all of the ingredients in the pantry. I would recommend this and I'll certainly make it again. Read More

This is pretty good but I don't think it tastes like pecan pie. I was a bit concerned that it would be too sweet so I did cut the white sugar back to 1/3 cup. It is an interesting idea and I may make it again possiblt with the chocolate changes. Thanks for the idea. Read More

I decided to forego the cloves and cinnamon and add the 1/4 cup cocoa powder and 1 cup of pecan halves along with the oatmeal. This was a huge success. The pie tastes like a cross between a brownie and a pecan pie. Read More

I like this pie. I did 1/2 the sugar called for white and the other half brown added only 1/4 tsp cloves and added 1 tps vanilla. It was very good. I covered my crust with foil for the whole hour bake time and it was still dark brown. Tastes good. Read More

It was very easy to make and can be made with items from around the house. The problem is I wasn't too impressed with the taste. I added brown sugar and vanilla - it didn't seem to help. Probably won't make this again - just too bland. Read More
