Healthified Chocolate Oatmeal Cake

Monday, June 18, 2012

Let's say, theoretically, that you have PMS that is telling you FEED ME CHOCOLATE CAKE!!!!  What should you do?

I'll tell you what to do.  You make this cake and eat it too, with no guilt to cry about tomorrow when the PMS roller-coaster takes you over another loop.  ;)  (also TAKE YOUR VITEX ladies!  It will help you not want to kill people quite so much during that very special time of the month, and that's worth a whole, whole lot.  Just ask your husband.)

Chocolate Oatmeal Cake
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1-1/2 cups oatmeal
  • 1-1/2 sticks butter
  • 2 cups coconut sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the dry oatmeal into a medium bowl. Pour in the boiling water. Add the butter, sinking it into the hot water and oatmeal so it will start to melt, and set aside.  Spray a 9 by 13-inch pan with no-stick spray. In a large mixing bowl combine all of the other ingredients and then add the oatmeal and butter mixture.  Mix well.  Pour it into your 9x13 pan and bake for 35 minutes.  You can eat it without frosting.  It is moist and yummy just as it is.  :)
