The Moistest Chocolate Oatmeal Cake

This is delicious and so moist, hence the title.  You can even say it's healthy.  It does have oats in it.  Just don't look at the amount of butter or sugar you're adding in. ;)

1 ½ cup boiling water
1 cup oats           
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
½ cup butter or margarine
1 ½ cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 tbl cocoa
2 eggs
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
½ cup pecan pieces

Pour 1-1/2 cup boiling water over 1 cup oats and let stand 10 minutes.
Add 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup margarine or butter (softened) to oats and beat well.
Add 1 1/2 cup flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1 Tbl. Cocoa.
Add 2 eggs and beat well.  Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
Pour into greased, floured 8 x 12 pan...sprinkle top with 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup pecan pieces.  Bake at 375 for 35 to 40 minutes.

I chop up my pecan pieces really fine in my mini processor.  I mean I put it on grind.  I don't really like to even know that there are pecans on top.
