This apple oatmeal pie is a delicious dessert that doesn’t require making a crust. It’s a little like baked oatmeal, a little like an apple crisp, and a lot like apple pie!
This apple oatmeal pie is a super easy dessert to make. It is made from scratch and perfect for the holidays or any time you’re craving a comforting dessert. The combination of sweet apples and wholesome oats is magical.
I’m a huge fan of apple desserts like this apple cake with raisins or this easy apple pie recipe. I actually made this pie with apples I bought on the “clearance” rack in my grocery store’s produce section. They usually always have bags of brown bananas and bruised fruits and vegetables on sale. The apples I snagged worked out great!
What to serve with this dessert
You can serve this apple oatmeal pie as is or add whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on top.
For this recipe, you will need:
- Apples: You’ll need four large apples for this recipe. I used McIntosh apples.
- All purpose flour: Although there is no crust, you’ll still need some flour to make the topping.
- Old fashioned oats: For the topping.
- White sugar and brown sugar: To sweeten the pie and the apples with.
- Cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice: To give the pie a little spice.
- Butter: I recommend using unsalted butter. You’ll want the butter to be room temperature. If you only have salted butter on hand, that’s OK, just skip adding any additional salt in.
- Vanilla extract: I recommend using pure vanilla extract for baking.
- Salt: You’ll need just ¼ teaspoon of salt.
- Milk (optional): Try adding two tablespoons of milk for a creamier oat topping.
You’ll also need a 9 inch pie pan.
How to make
Begin by peeling, coring, and chopping your apples into small pieces. Next, sprinkle them with part of the white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Add the vanilla extract in as well.
Next, add the apple mixture to a well greased pie pan.
In a bowl, combine the oats, salt, flour, nutmeg, all spice, remaining cinnamon, brown sugar, and white sugar. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or two knives. The mixture should be crumbly.
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes at 350 degrees. The top should be golden brown.
- I used McIntosh apples because that’s what was on sale at my local grocery store. You can use a combination of sweet and tart or just use your favorite type of apples.
- Try adding two tablespoons of milk for a creamier oatmeal topping.
How to store
Cover this apple oatmeal pie with plastic wrap and store in your refrigerator. It will be good for 4 to 5 days.
