DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Lightly spray a 9 inch pie plate with non stick spray.
  • Toast pecans on cookie sheet for 7 - 10 mintues, or until the smell of nuts fills the kitchen.
  • Combine oats, flour, toasted pecans, cinnamon and salt in food processor or blender, and pulse until mixture becomes a coarse meal.
  • Pour in oil and maple syrup and pulse until wet and dry are just combined.
  • (I used a blender to pulse the dry, and then mixed in the oil and syrup by hand in a bowl so it wouldn't get stuck in the bottom of the blender).
  • Press the mixture into a prepared pie plate. I like to use the bottom of a glass to press the crust down evenly on the bottom and sides.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.
  • Fill with your favorite pie filling: mine is PUMPKIN.
