  • 1 1/4 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup uncooked rolled oats (not instant oats)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


  • 1/4 cup butter (melted)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons almond milk (regular milk or half and half work too)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup shredded (unsweetened coconut)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 inch square pan. Set aside.

  4. Pour batter into baking dish and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the cake.


  1. In a small bowl combine butter, sugar, milk, walnuts, and coconut and stir to combine.
