This is not exactly a pie. And, it isn’t birdseed, either. But that is the name that jumped out at me and I couldn’t shake it loose, so here we are. It does look exactly like birdseed, and it is in a pie dish. Good enough for me.
Also, this isn’t a perfect recipe. My kids don’t like it because it is just too healthy. It has that toothsome, chewy personality that is perhaps most appreciated by those of us who actually brag about fiber consumption. I boil the honey to thin it out for mixing. And this will probably rankle any honey purist. It would bother me, except that it works better this way. It is a crumbly pie, which might irritate perfectionists. Have I got you REALLY excited to make this yet?
Let me try again. This has all of my favorite things in it…honey, oats, coconut, dried cherries and salty Marcona almonds. It forms into a nice flat pie that is easily cut into pieces. I have eaten it for 5 mornings in a row. It is so very easy to make. It has flax-seed in it which is ridiculously good for you. It has bran and oats in it which will…make your intestines happy. It has powdered milk in it which adds a little protein. I just plain like it. It makes me happy. This is an easy breakfast, snack, or dessert. It is wonderful with coffee.
