Classic Strawberry Pie

Strawberry Pie by Natalie Paramore

I also made a pie, because I am on my mission to learn everything about pies this year. I wrote this recipe for Baked Strawberry Pie originally for Food Fanatic. But what I really want to talk about is you. Yes, Y-O-U and how thankful I am for each and every one of you! Seriously.

I’ve had some steel cut oats for a while. Couldn’t figure out just what to do with them. I thought why not replace regular, high calorie granola with some of these and see what happens?

It was good! Use vanilla Greek yogurt or brown sugar for extra sweetness. The oats can be a little gritty and dry, so stir them into the yogurt for a hearty texture.
