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


  • 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


  • 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!


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.

Huge thanks to Melanie at Nutritious Eats for the inspiration behind this baked oatmeal 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. 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?

    1. 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!

    1. 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!

  2. 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!

    1. 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!

  3. If you may be still getting the oversight message, continue with such steps:
    . 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.

  4. 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.

      1. Hi! I was/am desperate to find nutritious GF foods that are quick to eat…your recipe is PERFECT! I have it baking in the oven as I type! My problem is that, after the initial 45min bake it was very wet. I am now 2 hours in to baking and the wetness is slowly going away. Any idea on what I have done wrong?? I’d like to try this recipe again and make it a staple for me…I have celiac, my job is very physically demanding and I am withering away to bones! Thank you in advance.

        1. Hi Courtney! So glad you stopped by, and thanks so much for your comment. Sorry the recipe hasn’t worked for you. DId you substitute any of the ingredients? I’ve made it several times, and it cooks up moist but firm enough to slice it. Here’s a thought to try though…My recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups of oats to keep it low FODMAP, but many other recipes for Baked Oatmeal call for 2 cups of oats. I would suggest trying it again and increasing the oats to 2 cups. I would love to hear if this cooks up better for you! Feel free to e-mail me at spicyrdeastewart@sbcglobal.net if you have any other questions. Cheers!

  5. 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?

  6. Just had this for breakfast, was wonderful! Great healthy alternative to pancakes for a weekend breakfast! We topped it with plain Greek yogurt drizzled with a little honey and sprinkled with cinnamon.

  7. I could definitely eat this pie for every meal. I’m curious if I could substitute almonds for the walnuts?

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

  8. 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!

  9. 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;)).
