Oats 'n Honey Granola Pie

I offered to bring dessert to this year's Thanksgiving dinner and I've decided to make Oats 'n Honey Granola Pie. This is a recipe that I saw on Oprah a long time ago (it was the 2004 Pillsbury Bake-Off winner) that I bust out whenever I need to make a pie. It's really delicious and it could not be easier to make. My plan was to post about it on Saturday after I had baked mine but then I realized that doesn't really give anyone enough time to make one for their own Thanksgiving! So I'm going to share the recipe tonight and then I'll post my results on Saturday.

Oats 'n Honey Granola Pie

  • 1 refrigerated Pillsbury pie crust (from 15-ounce box), softened as directed on box
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 eggs , lightly beaten
  • 4 Nature Valley® Oats 'n Honey crunchy granola bars (2 pouches) crushed.
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • Whipped cream or ice cream , if desired
Heat oven to 350°F.
Place pie crust in 9-inch glass pie pan as directed on box for One-Crust Filled Pie.
In large microwavable bowl, microwave butter on high 50 to 60 seconds or until melted.
Stir in brown sugar and corn syrup until blended. Beat in salt, vanilla and eggs.
Stir crushed granola bars, walnuts, oats and chocolate chips into brown sugar mixture. Pour into crust-lined pan.
Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until filling is set and crust is golden brown. During last 15 to 20 minutes of baking, cover crust edge with strips of foil or pie shield to prevent excessive browning.
Cool at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled with whipped cream or ice cream.
Store in refrigerator.
I promise that you will love this pie. It's a nice alternative to Pumpkin Pie to serve after Thanksgiving dinner and your family will think it's a hit!
