~Speaking of Pie~

Written by Sue, Saturday January25,2014          partly sunny, still cold, temps. 40's it's winter don't cha know
Here is something to warm your tummy on a cold winter day, it is absolutely delicious, and can be prepared very quickly. I call this my 'Baked Oatmeal Pie".

Combine:dry ingredients and mix well:
1 1/2 cups steel cut oatmeal~
1 tsp.baking powder~
1/2 tsp. fine sea salt~
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon~
1 cup chopped walnuts~

Mix wet ingredients:
1 3/4 cups. almond or coconut milk, I used coconut, reg. milk will do too!~
2 small eggs beaten~
1/3 cup maple syrup or honey, I used honey, not quite 1/3cup~
2 tsp. vanilla flavoring, the real stuff~
Place 1 cup berries in bottom of pie plate, I used blackberries, any berry would be fine, I am also going to try apples soon,add dry ingredients over the berries,pour liquid over this, do not stir, top with as many berries as you like, bake in 350* oven until golden brown, or set, sorry I didn't time it. *note* this looks extra rich and yellow, because of the farm eggs from my hens!

 Serve as is, or you might want to pour some maple syrup over it for the kids. If you want a real hearty breakfast serve some bacon or sausage patty with this on the side!
This can also be used as dessert, serve warm from the oven, add ice cream  or whipped cream, This morning I added whipped cream with a sprinkle of cinnamon for Mr. P. He has been extra sweet this week, helping me with the garage! ~wink~
You can decide  for yourself if this is pie or not! ~Grin~ I don't scoop it(though it can be) I slice it, so does that qualify as pie?~smile~
Enjoy your day,

The prayers we weave into matching socks, the stirring of oatmeal, the reading of stories, they survive the fire.

If you are calling it "pie," I'll call it pie. John has oatmeal every day, though he likes his oatmeal on the light side. I like your kind of oatmeal pie. Hmmm...whipped cream in the morning? Wow. You really know how to live!

Hi Sue, It's so nice to meet you. We would love your oatmeal pie! I'm with Vee, whipped cream in the a.m. is a real luxury!
I look forward to following you in the new year. Have a blessed weekend.

That would be so health to have on this cold winter day because it is going to be in the low 50's and we must get out to shop or play after the deep freeze. And before Mondays new deep freeze that is coming.
Have a happy day!

Oh Sue this sounds just wonderful! And I'd call it pie too. Yum, yum, yum. Enjoy your day!

I love blackberries, but apple sounds good for this pie, too! Looks very tasty!

I am on my way to Pin this recipe, Sue! Yummmm...

(Whipped cream? Okay!) :D

Kathi January 25, 2014 at 9:41 PM  

Yum yum, Sue. I think I will try this. My hubby would be thrilled. Kathi

I'm laughing because you can call it
pie or not just by the way you dish it out! Now that's my kind of style!

Trish January 27, 2014 at 1:03 AM

This is just the recipe I need! So glad I stopped by here today, because I've been hankering for something like your pie, loving oats and walnuts and having some berries in the freezer. If I make something as pretty I'll probably have to blog about it - but I will use my own picture and link back to your recipe ;-)
Thanks for this, and for all the more recent blogging etiquette help, too.

oops - that blogging etiquette was Vee and not you - I must go over to her site and give those thanks in the right place.

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
