    Thanks ladies for all your help. I tried the one with GrapeNuts - but without a recipe and used a full cup and didn't soak them before putting in pie. GrapeNuts taste was very strong plus it soaked up my filling. Tried it with oats, couldn't taste them BUT you could feel the oats. Think I'll try toasting the oats before adding them to my pie and maybe blending them a little. I'll try the pretzels next. I also toasted a cup of coconut and used that and it makes a really good pie.

    A friend and I used to make one with oatmeal for some people who couldn't have nuts. It was very good. Make sure there's a little butter in your filling.

    A great big THANK YOU to sassy granny for her suggestion to use pretzels. I tried it last night & took it to church and my pastor complemented me on the pecan pie! When I told him what was in it he was flabbergasted. I used the recipe from on line - but next time I'll just make my regular pecan pie recipe and use a cup of crushed pretzels. The recipe calls for 1-1/2 cup pretzels, 2 Tablespoons Butter and 2 Tablespoons Sugar stirred together and sprinkled on top of the filling. One thing that fools you is the fact that the pretzels have the same texture as pecans after they're cooked - you know - sorta' crunchy?

    My mom used to make an oatmeal pie that tasted like pecan pie. I'll get the recipe and post ASAP. We used to call it "poor man's pecan pie."
