Amish oatmeal pie is easy to make and taste delicious
Amish oatmeal pie
Amish oatmeal pie has its origins from the special Christian community the Amish people. It was initially made during a period when it was difficult to get pecan and walnuts. The filling is incredibly easy to make – it includes brown sugar and oatmeal. Together, it gives a beautiful caramelized taste. Served hot and with ice cream, it is easy to understand why this has become a popular pie far beyond the Amish people’s community.

Allergy: Gluten and lactose. Easy made both gluten and lactose free by using gluten-free flour and lactose-free milk. Oats are gluten-free, but for those who are particularly sensible, special oatmeal must be purchased, as the production process does not guarantee trace elements from other flour. Low FODMAP, this requires that the puff pastry is made with spelt flour, and that you replace the milk with lactose-free cow’s milk.
