Daaaang, that’s a long title.

In my head, though, it sounded much better than calling it, let’s say, Strawberry Oatmeal Pie. That sounds like something you could order off a menu at your nearest Family Diner. And it would be something soggy. So, no. I decided to go with the long title, instead.

Besides, there’s one more word that I didn’t fit in there – honey. Cereal, too. Wasn’t sure where to put it. 

Soooo? What’s going on? Happy Monday! I’m on a vacay from the husband. He’s on the other side of the pond for a few days and I’m all like, YAAAAY! BravoTV all week long! …with a serving-or-two of this Strawberry Coconut Oatmeal Crunch Pie! SCORE!

Actually, this pie was intended for my picky 4-year old. I asked her to tell me what she wanted for me to bake, and her answer was, strawberries. I threw my hands up in the air and just started going off about how she doesn’t eat anything, but strawberries and waffles, and as I was waving my finger at her, she goes, “Um…stop that. You look like Grandma.”

Um…did she just tell me that I’ve turned into my Mom?!? Dagger.

Next thing she tells me is that she would like for me to make her something with strawberries, strawberry cereal, and strawberry frosting. My girl likes her strawberries even in the dead of winter. And what’s a Mama to do, but go get some berries and start working on a pie she hopes will look and taste just as delicious as she sees it in her head.

I came home, threw some things together in a bowl, drizzled it with honey, popped it in the oven and voila! We have pie. Crunch Pie, at that.

For you, I ended up making it a bit prettier by adding the berries on top instead of inside the crust. Aside from the fact that it looks a lot better this way, it tastes better, too.

What’s more important is that Ana inhaled two slices. Double SCORE! One of these days she might move up a little bit faster on that growth chart. Until then, I’ll just keep on making this pie, and you should, too! icon wink Strawberry Coconut Oatmeal Crunch Pie

    I made this recipe today and it is AWESOME! I was looking for a fruity summer dessert and this was perfect. Coconut isn’t usually something I bake with, but I’ll probably start using it now. Thanks for the great recipe! I’d love it if you checked out my post about it :)

    Picky kids, I rather change diapers a million times over! My daughter is on a strawberry kick too-I have to sneak veggies in somehow otherwise forget it. When she refuses everything, it’s my last resort. At least Ana is eating them in a healthy way!

    I love the heartiness of the oatmeal… but the lightness of the strawberries. Looks like a big winner. :)
