A yummy alternative to pumpkin pie. If you don't care for an oat-based crust, you can make one using 3 cups of graham cracker crumbs mixed with 3/4 cups of melted butter, sweetened to taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the base, combine flour, oatmeal, sugar and salt in a food processor.
  2. Add the butter; process until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl; stir in the egg.
  4. Measure 1-1/2 cups of the oatmeal mixture; set aside for the topping.
  5. Gently pat the remaining oatmeal mixture into a 13" x 9" baking dish.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes or until golden and firm.
  7. To make the filling, beat together the sugar and eggs in a medium bowl.
  8. Beat in the pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg until the mixture is smooth; beat in the milk.
  9. Pour over the base.
  10. To make the topping, combine the reserved oatmeal mixture and chopped nuts in a small bowl.
  11. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the pumpkin filling.
  12. Bake at 350 degrees F about 30 minutes or until the centre is set.
  13. Let cool in the pan before cutting into squares.
  14. Top each square with a pecan half.
  15. Serve as is or top with whipped cream.

This is very good and easy to put together. Since we are only 2 in our home, I did halve the recipe ingredients and used an 8x8 pan. We like our pie a bit more spicey so will use the original spice amounts the next time. Also, more chopped pecans. Maybe even put some in the crust portion.
