1/3 c. raisins
1/4 c. flaked coconut
3 T. light brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. ground allspice
2 T. soy bacon bits
1/4 c. light brown sugar
1/2 c. flaked coconut
1 t. ground coriander

In large saucepan bring water and salt to boil. Add oats, stir well.
Add raisins, coconut, brown sugar and soy bacon bits. Stir.
Reduce heat to low and cook, uncovered, for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, till all visible liquid has been absorbed by the oats.
Pour into a 9 inch pie plate or an 8 x 8 inch baking dish. Set aside.
Combine all topping ingredients in bowl.
Mix with fingers till all crumbs are coated with the olive oil.
Evenly distribute over pie to the rim. Press crumbs lightly into top of pie.
Bake in preheated 400 degree oven, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 300 degrees and bake 30 minutes longer.
Remove from oven and let set 5 minutes.
While pie bakes make sauce.
Combine all sauce ingredients in small saucepan, over medium heat. Continuously stir and boil softly for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
To Serve: Either cut pie into wedges or scoop out with a spoon. Place on individual serving plates, then top each serving with 1-2 T. brown sugar sauce.
Notes: You’ve never had oatmeal quite like this. Reserve for days when you have the time and the leisure to create a beautiful brunch dish.
Serve with fresh fruit of choice. Ruby red grapefruit or orange segments go nicely.
Steel cut oats are cut rather than rolled (like tiny pellets). The texture is chewy.
Since we’re making a pie here, be sure to cook the oats in the saucepan till all liquid is absorbed by the oats.
This pie can be served at room temperature as well as five minutes out of the oven.
