Oatmeal Nut Pie Crust

"I just found this recipe in an old band bosters cookbook and placing it here for sharing and later use. The recipe mentions that it is a good substitute for graham cracker crust. It sounds good to me and might be a good alternative for cream pies or maybe even dutch apple or cherry."

    I used pecans, also used food processor on both after browning perfectly. Used Coconut Sugar and everything else the same. It worked out great, next time I'd process a bit more for a finer texture. Excellent recipe, thank you very much for sharing!

    Just what I was looking for to pair w/ lime curd for a tart! I opted to pulse in food processor after mixing all ingredients as I wanted a little finer texture on the oats. I forgot to time it since no bake time was given for an empty crust...I just pulled it out when it looked golden, and suspect it was about 15-20 min. in oven total in glass pie pan. Pressed into pan well, but would weight it down in the future baking it empty. I submitted a picture of what it looked like after baking. Great texture to compliment curd!

    This is fabulous - I've been looking for a truly good non-wheat pie crust and this is the best so far. Just a few tiny changes: instead of toasting the oatmeal in the oven, I stirred the oats in a medium-hot iron skillet. No particular reason, it was just on the stove and ready to go. Used Splenda instead of sugar, as we're low-carbers - didn't miss the brown sugar at all, plenty of flavor. Mixed it all up in the food processor. What a snap to make. Thank you, thank you! This one's a keeper!
