Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pie: Your Recipe, My Kitchen

This a recipe that I am going to have to redo.  I was in a hurry, didn't read the recipe right and over-baked it.  However, I think it has potential to be a great dessert.  Things I would do differently: not skimp on the crust....make a real one instead of a cheater graham cracker one; remember to write down the temperature and time for baking instead of winging it....this was the biggest failure of this baking adventure; use a liquid sweetener instead of brown sugar;  and finally use shredded, sweetened coconut instead of unsweetened flaked was really the wrong texture for this.  I think the pie should have had more of a chess pie texture, but my results were way off.  I am not writing this recipe off, though, but will try again using the following recipe.
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pie (from Dying for Chocolate)
2 eggs
3/4 cup pure maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 unbaked pie shell
Mix filling ingredients and pour into pie shell.  Bake for 1 hour at 350.  Cool before serving.

Your turn!  Last week was the biggest group of recipes yet, thank you.  Feel free to link up anything you have made in your kitchen this last week.  Just remember, please, to link back to this blog.

The ingredients sound delicious - I have overcooked things myself so many times - easy to do but sounds like it could be scrumptious!

Wow, Kristen! Another fantastic line-up of posts! I haven't been here in a while, but you've got to try this cake that I found on Mary's site!

And your pie? Wow! Is it a crumble, a pie, or a chocoholic's dream come true? Oh wait! All three! ;-)

Yeah- not gonna lie, it kind of looks disgusting. but then, i dont' like chocolate chips, coconut OR oatmeal. So maybe just not my dessert. However, you have a LOT off really great looking recipes here on your blog and in that linky! My mouth is watering over some of them!
