Nanny’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake: An All-Time Favorite

Nanny's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake: An All Time Favorite From www.homewithpurpose.net

My grandma has made this cake as long as I can remember and it is my favorite cake EVER! I’ve adapted it to using fresh ground whole wheat flour and honey instead of store bought flour and sugar and it is even more delicious! It’s a simple recipe but oh-so-good. One of these days, I’m going to adapt it for soaking the grains. Until then, it’s still many times better than most cakes made with refined ingredients!

Ingredients
1 ¾ cup boiling water (I use my tea kettle to boil water instead of the microwave)
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup sucanat
½ cup raw honey (local if possible!)
½ cup grassfed butter
½ tsp Real Salt or sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 free range eggs
1 ½ cup fresh-ground whole wheat pastry flour
12 oz chocolate chips (I like the dark chocolate rather than semi-sweet)
¾ cup chopped nuts (I usually use walnuts, but pecans are a great choice too! To improve the nutritional value even more, use crispy nuts)

 

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9×13 baking pan.
Mix boiling water and oatmeal, let cool 10 minutes.
Cream honey, sucanat, butter, eggs and vanilla in. Beat in oatmeal mixture
Add dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt, cocoa). Add 1/2 of chocolate chips.
Pour into prepared pan (greased and floured), sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips and nuts. Bake for 40 minutes at 350.

  8. That sounds and looks really good. I was happy to see the more natural ingredients that didn't form in a box of Betty Crocker cake mix. LOL I would make that just like it is as that's how I like to cook too.Blessings,Kim

    Hello! I am a woman with Type 2 diabetes. Are your recipes diabetic friendly recipes? What else do you use as a sweetner for baking besides honey?

    • Hi Paula! If you mean sugar-free, then no, I haven’t included diabetic versions of most of my recipes. I do use natural sweeteners like honey and sucanat in them all though, and I think many of them could be converted to be diabetic friendly fairly easily.

      Thanks for visiting! 🙂
