This cake was a favorite when all my kids were home.

1 3/4 cups boiling water
1 cup uncooked gluten-free Oats (reg if you don't need GF)
Combine and let let 10 minutes

1 cup Brown sugar, lightly packed
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs (only 2 if you are not making GF)
1/2 cup butter (or substitute if dairy free), softened
Cream together

Sift together the following:
1 3/4 cups Grandma Farmers Better Than Wheat Flour (or regular flour if you are not GF)
1 teaspoon Guar Gum (omit if not following the GF recipe)
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cocoa

Add flour and the following to the egg mixture
6 ounces chocolate chips
1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Pour into 9x12 prepared pan, sprinkle top with 6 more ounces of chocolate chips and 1/2 cup additional chopped walnuts.

Place in preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 40 minutes.
