Chocolate chip oatmeal loaf

This is a very moist bread, the texture is like a fudgy cake but slices like a bread.

  • 1-3/4 c. hot coffee
  • 1 cup oatmeal (quick cooking)
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 c. white sugar
  • 1-1/4 sticks butter
  • 2 large eggs (beaten)
  • 1-3/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 T. cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c. walnuts (chopped)
  • 1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c. walnuts (chopped)
Pour hot coffee over oatmeal in small bowl.  Let stand for 10 minutes.  Add brown sugar, white sugar, butter and eggs.  Stir until butter melts.  Add flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, 1 c. chocolate chips and walnuts.  Mix well, pour into 3 well-greased and floured 9” x 5” loaf pan or 2 smaller size loaf pans (not mini size).  Sprinkle with rest of chocolate chips and walnuts.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.  Remove and let cool completely before slicing.
Suggestion:  Use mini loaf pans, let cool completely.  Wrap in clear plastic, add a bow and give as presents to co-workers, friends.  Include a card with the recipe if you desire
