Maple Oatmeal Apple Pie – This sweet Maple Oatmeal Apple Pie is half apple pie, half maple oatmeal pie, combing two classic flavors to make one sweet, gooey, and amazing pie! This pie begins a homemade crust, has a layer of homemade apple pie, and finally a layer of maple oatmeal pie, making it the perfect dessert!
It’s been a battle.
A battle of the colds.
I’m pretty sure I coughed up a lung the other day, and I’ve eaten so many cough drops I’m practically a Ricola commercial.
Despite the fact I absolutely loathe being sick, I will say the one and only benefit to being down for the count for a few days has been being able to slow down, relax, and watch an endless amount of Christmas movies.
This really wasn’t how I was expecting to spend the last weekend before Christmas weekend, but…there are worse things than having to watch movies all day.
I had plenty of lofty plans to do some major Christmas baking over the weekend, including whipping up some Oreo Toffee Bark, Pistachio Pudding Cookies, and some Molasses Cookies, but, needless to say, soup is about the only thing I could muster the energy for.
Luckily, this pretty little pie right here (the Maple Oatmeal Apple Pie of my dreams that I’m over-the-moon-in-love-with) I made before the sickness set in.
It’s this amazing combination of a sweet homemade apple pie recipe and a maple oatmeal pie recipe, which creates this incredibly rich, gooey, sweet pie that’s full of cinnamon spice and absolutely everything nice.
Ohhh, and the maple oatmeal part of this pie has coconut in it, which if you know me, means it doesn’t get much better.
I’m kind of a coconut fanatic (cue this German Chocolate Pecan Pie and these Coconut Macaroons), and if something has coconut in it, there’s is a 112.2% that I will declare it the “best thing of my life.”
Like these Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Clusters? Yep. Best thing of my life.
For this recipe, I did make a homemade crust, as if I have time, I love how flaky and rich a homemade pie crust is.
However, if you’re on a time crunch or can’t stand making homemade pie crust, I feel you, and a pre-made pie dough would work just fine.
Despite this pie is a combination of two different pies, the filling for this Maple Oatmeal Apple Pie is fairly simple and straightforward.
The apple pie filling recipe is simply apples, ground cinnamon, a bit of ground ginger, sugar, and a little flour, while the maple oatmeal pie filling is maple syrup, an egg, sugar, brown sugar, milk, butter, vanilla, coconut, oats, and a little flour.
The maple oatmeal pie filling gets poured over the apple pie filling, then it’s baked to perfection!
Currently my fav pie of all time. ❤️ Merry almost Christmas!!
- 9 " or 10" homemade pie crust or pre-made pie dough
- 4 large apples, peeled and sliced (1/4" slices)
- 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- 4 Tbsp butter, melted
- 6 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup milk, I used 2%
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup coconut, sweetened and shredded
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Roll out your pie dough and place in a 9" pie plate (I used a 9" deep dish plate). Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine sliced apples, granulated sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and flour. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, mix together melted butter, maple syrup, granulated sugar, dark brown sugar, egg, milk, vanilla extract, coconut, oats, and flour.
- Add your apple pie filling first, then pour the maple oatmeal filling over the top.
- Bake for 65-75 minutes, until the filling is slightly golden brown and set (jiggles just slightly when the pie is given a little shake). If the crust seems to be browning quicker than the pie is cooking, you can cover the crust with a pie shield or some foil.
- Allow the pie to cool at least 2 hours so the filling can set.
- Serve at room temperature or cold, and top with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.
- Store leftovers in the fridge.
