I created this recipe from my original Pecan Pie recipe for my niece who is allergic to nuts, for our family reunion in 2011. It turned out perfectly, and at first glance everyone thought it was really a pecan pie. By using the steel cut oats, the texture is much chewier, but the rolled oats work just as well and are much cheaper. You can also use crushed pretzels. It taste & look just like the real thing, but you will be able to tell the difference. It still is very good. If there are any one you know that are allergic to nuts this is a perfect dessert .
