So many things can go wrong when you try a recipe for the first time. As if the newness of this Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pie weren’t enough, I didn’t pay close attention to this the first time I made it and 1. I over-baked it, 2. I didn’t make a real crust, but used graham crackers instead, 3. I used brown sugar instead of a liquid sweetener and 4. I used coconut chips instead of shredded. It was almost a total fail.
Luckily, I went back and made it again, following the instructions more closely. The results were fantastic. Normally in a chess pie, you have an almost pudding like filling. The oatmeal in this recipe causes the filling to thicken up like a hearty breakfast. I, ahem, may have actually had a piece or two for breakfast the next day….
