Amish Oatmeal Pie Recipe

We really needed a new dessert. While I don’t make dessert very often, my kids like it when I do and they like it when we try something new and different.

I was so inspired by all of the delicious Amish cooking and baking during our time in Ohio that I thought I would try making this Amish Oatmeal Pie for the family one night when I promised them a special supper. The result was a hit that was different from our normal desserts but in a good way.

This recipe has since become a keeper and the kids ask for it often! I love this recipe because it’s frugal to make and really easy as far as baking a pie goes. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oatmeal Pie INgredients

Amish Oatmeal Pie

What You Need:

  • 1 1/2 cups of Milk
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2/3 cup Oats
  • 1 1/3 cup Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Molasses
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2/3 cup Raisins

Mixing Oatmeal Pie

In a large bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, and butter. It helps if the butter is softened. You can use a butter alternative if needed.

Vanilla in Oatmeal Pie

Add in the vanilla and molasses and mix well.

Then add in the remaining ingredients. You can leave the raisins out if your family doesn’t like them but this pie makes them really moist and yummy so we like them.

Oatmeal Pie Before Baking

Pour the pie into a prepared crust or a homemade crust. Our favorite pie crust recipe is this Butter Crust. You can also use gluten free flour in it and replace the butter with lard or tallow for dairy free.

The pie filling will work best in a deep dish pie crust. If you don’t have this, you will have a little leftover pie filling.

Bake the pie at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes and then at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until the center seems set. Allow the pie to cool completely. I let mine sit on the counter until I can handle it and then we put it in the fridge for several hours before serving.

This pie is so good warm or cold! It would be excellent with a dollop of Homemade Whipped Cream on the top. It’s very similar to a Pecan Pie without the pecans so if you have anyone with nut allergies in your home like we do, they will really enjoy this simple pie!

  1. Or for those who are vegan use coconut oil. In warm weather keep some coconut oil in the frig so it will work right to make crust.

  2. Looks like you bought your oats at East union bulk food. I live 2 miles west of there! Wish I could of met you. I’ve had oatmeal pie many times but never with raisins.

  3. 5 stars
    I can’t wait to try this! Do you think it would hold up if chocolate chips were added instead of raisins? Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are a favorite in the house. Thanks!

  4. This sounds good! But I donโ€™t keep molasses in the pantry. Do you think anything else would work as a substitute? Iโ€™ve got honey, syrup, brown sugar… I hate to buy molasses when I wonโ€™t use it all. Thanks!

  5. I used to make an oatmeal pie back in the early 1970’s, and it was an inexpensive substitution for pecan pie, since pecans can be expensive. It didn’t have raisins, so I think this Amish version with raisins is a great idea. Either way, with or without, oatmeal pie tastes very much like pecan pie and I thank you for posting this recipe. I haven’t made an oatmeal pie in about 10 years, but I plan on making your recipe as soon as I go buy some molasses.
    Oh, I almost forgot to ask my question! Just would like to make sure the second stage of baking is 305 degrees, as stated in your recipe. That will be easy to do in my electric stove oven with it’s digital oven setting, but a little harder for those without one. So I thought I would recheck with you to make sure it isn’t a typo. Thanks again for this lovely recipe. It saves me looking through my old recipes trying to find the one for oatmeal pie. This really is an economical recipe, and very timely in this period of rising grocery prices due to the coronavirus.

  6. Hi Marissa,
    This recipe sounds good. My question is do you decrease the oven temp to 305 or could that be a typo and should it read 350 degrees?
    Thanks Susan

  7. Is 305 degrees correct or is it a typo that should be 350? I really want to make this pie, it sounds amazing, but I don’t want to mess it up.

  8. Hi,
    I want you to know that I absolutely love this pie. It is so good and the butter crust is delicious.

    Thank you for sharing.
    Sabrina

  9. This just came up as a shared memory on my Facebook page. I didn’t try it but want to.
    Have you tried it with chocolate chips instead of raisins? My husband WILL. NOT. (that’s a full stop) tolerate cooked raisins.
