Grandma's pie - juicy, fragrant, tempting.
Can you imagine it being just as delicious (well - at least quite close), but with oatmeal instead of pie crust or white flour…?
For the first time, I tried a healthier and low-calorie version of the traditional Bulgarian pie and it turned out extremely juicy and delicious!
Here is the recipe!
- 4 eggs
- 300 g yogurt
- 300 g cottage cheese
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 50 g melted butter
- 200 g oatmeal, fine
- 50 ml of fresh milk
- For sprinkling: sunflower, chia, or other nuts/seeds as desired
Method of preparation:
Beat the 3 eggs (the 4th is for topping), then add the yoghurt with the baking soda and cottage cheese. Finally - the oatmeal, half (25 g) of the melted butter, and the salt. Stir well.
Pour the mixture into a baking pan covered with baking paper and greased with a little butter so that it does not stick.
In a bowl, mix the rest of the butter, 1 egg, and 50 ml of milk. Pour over the pie and, if desired, sprinkle with sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, or others. I used sunflower and chia seeds.
Bake the pie in a preheated 180-degree - Celsius oven for 45 minutes or until done.
I cut the ready pie into 8 pieces.
Each piece oatmeal pie has nutrition values as follows:
- 230 calories
- 19.8 g carbohydrates
- 10.4 g fat
- 14.6 g protein
