Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake

Chocolate Oatmeal Cake
So much oatmeal so little blog space. I made this cake and it was a hit in my house. I thought it needed something more (cinnamon or nutmeg or something), but Alex thought it was perfect. As I do with anything oatmeal this day, I added flax seed. You couldn't even taste the addition so no harm done.

3/4 cup and 2 tablespoons boiling water
1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup and 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking cocoa
1/8 tsp salt
1 Tbsp flaxseed
1/2 (12 ounce) package chocolate chips, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare an 8x8 pan by coating with cooking spray.

In a mixing bowl, pour water over oatmeal. Allow to stand 10 minutes.

Add sugars and butter, stirring until the butter melts. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla.

Sift flour, soda, cocoa, salt, and flaxseed together. Add to batter. Mix well. Stir in half the chocolate chips.

Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
