Coffee Talk + Fresh Strawberry Chia Baked Oatmeal Pie

Fresh Strawberry Chia Baked Oatmeal PiePull up a seat because we’re having pie tonight.  As in Fresh Strawberry Chia Baked Oatmeal Pie.

“Oh we’re having pie for dessert tonight?” said Mr. Spicy when I told him as much.

“No. Pie for dinner. As in breakfast for dinner.  And by the way, it’s healthy pie.  With chia seeds, spices, walnuts, and more strawberries on top,”  said Moi.

“Oh. OK.”

Fresh Strawberries // The Spicy RDAnd we’ll be enjoying it with a cup of coffee on the side, because I really want to share a cup of this Puro Fairtrade Coffee with you that the very lovely Tamara sent to me to try.

Puro Fairtrade CoffeeDecaf for me {at night}, and regular for Mr. Spicy because he has this annoying habit of being able to go right to sleep immediately after drinking a cup of the fully leaded stuff.

Do you know anyone like that???

Now before I cut you a slice of pie, let’s chat about Puro Fairtrade Coffee, because coffee lover that I am, they have a pretty cool story to tell…

  • All varieties of Puro Fairtrade Coffee are shade grown which encourages the preservation of trees native to the area where the coffee is grown, or re-planting of trees that once stood on the land to provide essential shade, which is great for biodiversity.
  • Puro has teamed up with The World Land Trust UK, which helps conserve biodiversity by protecting threatened habitats, and helps to ensure they are managed sustainably in cooperation with local partners and communities.
  • Money from each bag of Puro coffee sold goes towards buying and protecting areas of rainforest-10,178 acres to date!
  • Puro has also teamed up with Trees4Schools in South Africa where they have helped fund the planting of 1196 trees and 68 vegetable gardens which are now helping to feed 649 people!

Pretty cool, right???

Oh, and if you’re wondering how Puro Fairtrade Coffee tastes, let me tell you, it is rich, smooth, and delicious!

Disclosure: I received a gift pack of Puro Fairtrade Coffee, and other assorted goodies, to review on The Spicy RD.  I was not compensated for this post, and, as always, my opinions are 100 % my own.  I highly encourage you to check out the Puro Coffee website to learn more about shade grown coffee and their fabulous social initiatives.  They are also looking for a US Distributor, so if anyone is interested {Hint, Hint}, definitely get in touch with Puro :-)

And now for that Fresh Strawberry Chia Baked Oatmeal Pie I’ve been telling you about…

Fresh Strawberry Chia Baked Oatmeal Pie
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Breakfast for dinner, or dessert for breakfast...Either way, this Fresh Strawberry Chia Baked Oatmeal Pie is a healthy and delicious way to start or end your day!
Serves: 6-8 slices
  • 2 cups dairy or non-dairy milk of choice {I used Organic Valley Lactose Free Milk}
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 1½ cups oats {use certified gluten-free oats if on a gluten-free diet}
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts {or nuts of choice}
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup melted virgin coconut oil plus extra for greasing pan
  • 2 pints fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 2 large eggs, beaten well
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • Optional, Greek or lactose free yogurt for serving
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit, and grease a 9 inch pie pan or baking dish with coconut oil. Pour the milk in to a large mixing bowl along with the chia seeds and oats, and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, toast the chopped walnuts, cinnamon, and ginger in a skillet over medium heat for approximately 3 minutes, then add them to the chia, milk, and oat mixture along with the remaining ingredients {add 1 pint of sliced strawberries to the mixture, and save the other pint for serving} and stir until well combined.
  3. Place pan on a baking sheet in the oven {in case mixture overflows} and bake for 40-45 minutes or until set. Note: You will want to check the pie at about 30 minutes, and if it is getting brown, place some aluminum foil on top for the remaining time in the oven.
  4. Cool on a baking sheet for 15 minutes, then cut in to 6-8 wedges {depending upon how hungry you are} and serve with optional yogurt, and the remaining sliced strawberries. If you have any leftovers, store in the refrigerator for breakfast or a snack-it is equally delicious served cold the next day!
Nutrition Information
Serving size: 1 slice

Strawberry Chia Baked Oatmeal PieNutrition Tidbits {aka why you should eat this strawberry chia baked oatmeal pie as “breakfast for dinner”, OR as “dessert for breakfast”…

  • Despite being called a pie, it’s really quite nutritious with a good dose of fiber from the oats, chia seeds, walnuts and strawberries, plus it’s rich in protein, especially when served with the yogurt on top, to fill you up, stabilize your blood sugar levels, and keep you energized all day long!
  • It’s suitable for both gluten-free and vegetarian diets, PLUS, I created it with my FODMAP friends in mind, since it’s made with lactose free milk, and I kept the oats to a maximum of 1/4 cup dry per serving {when cut in to 6 slices}.
  • It’s super easy to make ahead of time and reheat when needed, or enjoy cold straight from the fridge.
  • If you have kids, they will LOVE eating pie for dinner, AND for breakfast!!!

Huge thanks to Melanie at Nutritious Eats for the inspiration behind this recipe! I’ve made her Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal several times now, and it’s always a hit with my family.  Knowing how easy, nutritious, and delicious it is, inspired me to make this equally delicious low FODMAP version for my clients to enjoy :-)

  1. Pie for breakfast or dinner sounds good to me!

  2. This looks AMAZING! I even have everything on hand to make it :)

  3. Love all the healthy ingredients in this dinner “pie” EA! So fun when you call something a word that conveys dessert – everyone thinks they’re getting a real treat ;). I remember the time I made Chocolate “Mousse” for breakfast for my son and he looked at me with a puzzled face – dessert for breakfast? Yup I said with a smirk (it was made with tofu and bananas;)).

  4. What a beautiful pie and one that is nutritious! I’ve never used chia seeds in this way, but you’ve given me wonderful inspiration. Xx

  5. Oh, that pie sounds wonderful! It would make a great addition to a breakfast or brunch party, too. Bookmarking to try!

  6. This is so weird but I think I was your first commenter (I was up very early again) and as it was on my stupid Kindle I guess it didn’t register with you. It is has happened before with other blogs. Anyhoo, This sounds like a super brunch idea for this Sunday’s Mothering Sunday here in the UK. It looksvVery straight forward, and I love all of the ingredients. I will have to use Spanish strawberries as our own ones don’t come into later in the summer. I plan on making this soon!

    The coffee sounds great, can’t wait to taste it along some of this yummy pie. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Just made this with 6oz blueberries, no ginger, pecans, coconut milk (from the carton) and vanilla paste. Yum!

  12. Love this version EA! Thank you so much for the acknowledgement! 😉 I can’t wait to try that coffee!

  17. Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has
    some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick
    heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!

    your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

  20. At this time it looks like BlogEngine is the best blogging platform
    available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

  21. I pay a visit day-to-day some blogs and blogs to read posts, except
    this blog gives feature based content.

  25. The Internet has made the searching of people’s favorite music tunes and videos so much easier. John Adams’ Saxophone Concerto made its American premier on September 20, 2013, in addition to a studio recording is planned in the not too distant future. The practical skills and knowledge can then be translated to the job market.

    . Below is a slide show with samples of some of the many depictions
    of Michael. This electronic toy is considered as one of the top rated electronic
    toys for Christmas 2011 due to its durabilityand functionality.

  28. Hello – Sounds delish… Found this recipe via a post on Instagram. I see its vegetarian but the title on the main recipes page reads this ‘Strawberry Chia Baked Oatmeal Pie {vegan option}’. What can the substitution be for the eggs here to make it vegan? Thanks!

    • Hi Angelica! Great question :-) To make this vegan I would use additional chia seeds as an egg replacer. Two additional tablespoons of chia seeds + 6 tablespoons of water would be the equivalent of 2 eggs. If you give it a try, I’d love to know how it turns out. Cheers!

  29. Looks great! I have lots of strawberry left over from other project, would like to make this pie soon!

  30. Kristin Thomas says:

    Is there a nutritional label for this? just curious about carbs and fiber etc
    thank you! NUM!

    • Hi Kristin-Great question! I hadn’t done a nutritional analysis before, so I must did one, and here are the stats: Calories per slice (based on 8 servings per pie) 303, Total Carbs 27 g (8 g fiber, 13 g sugar), 9 g protein, 18 g fat (3 g saturated, 7 g monounsaturated, 8 g polyunsaturated). Hope this helps, and enjoy!

  31. What a beautiful and creative recipe! (I also love the Organic Valley Lactose Free Milk!!) :)

  32. Wow, I just found this recipe. What a mix {Coffee & Pie}; I certainly will give it a try!

  33. This is delicious. I do not have any fresh strawberries right not, but a lot of frozen. Would I need to adjust the recipe when using frozen strawberries?

    • HI Sandy-thanks so much! I haven’t tried this with frozen strawberries, but I bet it would work well {or with frozen raspberries or blueberries too!]. I think you could use the same amount (2 cups). Let me know how it turns out!
