This Baked Oatmeal Pie w/ Strawberries & Chia Seeds is a healthy and delicious way to start your day!

Fresh Strawberry Chia Baked Oatmeal Pie

Pull 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 baked oatmeal pie.  With chia seeds, spices, walnuts, and more strawberries on top,”  said Moi.

“Oh. OK.”

And 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 Coffee

Decaf 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 baked oatmeal 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???

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.

Is baked oatmeal healthy? For sure!

  • This yummy baked oatmeal is rich in microbiome friendly fiber from the oats, chia seeds, walnuts and strawberries.
  • It’s a good source of protein, especially when served with the yogurt on top. Getting enough protein in the morning will help stabilize your blood sugar levels, and keep you energized all day long.
  • It’s suitable for both gluten-free and vegetarian diets, plus it’s low FODMAP if you make it with lactose free milk or your favorite low FODMAP plant based milk.

P.S. This Baked Oatmeal Pie makes a healthy and delicious Brinner! {“Breakfast for Dinner”}

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Servings: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk, dairy or non-dairy
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts , or nuts of choice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 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

Instructions

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!

Notes

Heart Healthy Option

Swap out the coconut oil for high oleic expeller pressed sunflower oil, organic canola oil, or macadamia nut oil.

Other Ingredient Swaps

  • Fresh strawberries not in season? Frozen, thawed, and well drained strawberries will work well too, or substitute with any other favorite berries.
  • Swap chia seeds with ground flax seeds or hemp seeds.
  • Use pecans, macadamia nuts, or almonds in place of walnuts.
