Whole Foods Oatmeal Pie

This is an amazing recipe from Whole Foods, if you like oatmeal. The pie makes a great breakfast for either at home or on the go, as it's easy to slice a piece and throw in a container. Lily, our 15 month old, also really loves it, which makes it even better in my book! Did I mention it's super healthy??
  • 2 Cups-Frozen Mixed Berries (I always use a combination of blueberries and raspberries or strawberries) 
  • 2 Cups-Old Fashioned Rolled Oats 
  • 1/2 Cup-Chopped Nuts (The recipe calls for pecans, but I've always used almonds. These could be completely omitted if you wanted) 
  • 1 tsp-Baking Powder 
  • 1/2 tsp-Salt 
  • 1-Organic Apple (Grated-about 1 cup-The recipe says to peel the apple and I never do) 
  • 1 Cup-Milk (Your fat preference) 
  • 1/2 Cup-Nonfat Vanilla Yogurt (I've also just used plain yogurt, which tastes great, just a bit less sweet)
  • 1/3 Cup-Maple Syrup 
  • 2 tsps-Vanilla Extract 
  • 1-Egg Plus 1-Egg Yolk 
Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 9 inch pie pan with cooking spray or butter and set aside. In a large bowl mix together oats, baking powder, salt, grated apple, nuts and berries. In a separate bowl mix the yogurt, milk, eggs, vanilla and maple syrup. Combine the wet with the dry ingredients and place in the pie pan. Bake for about 50 minutes, until lightly golden on top; slice and eat. This can be eaten soon after it's cooked, or put in the refrigerator to have the next day. Fun additions to this would be grated carrot and/or zucchini. We sometimes put a little whip cream on top...it is a pie after all!
