Thanksgiving Dessert: Oatmeal Chocolate Pecan Pie | Family Economics


Alison Lewis 


I wanted to share my new, favorite dessert – Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie – perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. This pie is not only delicious, but requires only 15 minutes of my “hands-on” time! A dream come true for those of us that will be playing chef for the next few months. Adding oatmeal to this pie makes it a little bit healthier and gives it more texture. My three children are in love with this dessert, so it looks like I’ll be making several of these during both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Feel free to use dark chocolate chips instead of semisweet if you wish. Enjoy!
