Pie # 22 Oats' N Honey Granola Bar Pie


Okay so this is my pick.  I saw this pie won the Pillsbury Bake-off back in 2004 and I have wanted to try it ever since.  So I’ll just be making and reviewing this pie, it won’t go to the judges.  But I’m so excited to finally try it after 7 years of wanting to!!


  • 1  pie crust
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 eggs , lightly beaten
  • 4 Nature Valley® Oats 'n Honey crunchy granola bars (2 pouches) crushed. To easily crush granola bars, do not unwrap. Use rolling pin to crush bars.
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • Whipped cream or ice cream , if desired


Heat oven to 350°F.
Place piecrust in 9-inch glass pie pan as directed on box for One-Crust Filled Pie.
In large microwavable bowl, microwave butter on high 50 to 60 seconds or until melted.
Stir in brown sugar and corn syrup until blended. Beat in salt, vanilla and eggs.
Stir crushed granola bars, walnuts, oats and chocolate chips into brown sugar mixture. Pour into crust-lined pan.
Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until filling is set and crust is golden brown. During last 15 to 20 minutes of baking, cover crust edge with strips of foil or pie shield to prevent excessive browning.
Cool at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled with whipped cream or ice cream.
Store in refrigerator.


This pie was good, but I probably wouldn’t make it again.  It’s just not my kind of pie.  I you are a lover of pecan pie then you would probably love it.  I am glad I finally tried it and can cross it off my To Do list.
