To start I dumped some brown sugar, 2 large eggs, vanilla extract, meringue powder and mashed sweet potato into a large mixing bowl.

If you do not have leftover sweet potato, pierce one with a fork and cook it in the microwave on high for 5 minutes.

I used an electric hand mixer, on medium speed, to beat the ingredients until they were frothy.  This took about 2 minutes.

Then I put the mixer on low speed while I drizzled in some sunflower oil (vegetable oil can be used).

After the oil was blended in I added some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Baking Flour, baking powder and some oat flour.

I make my own oat flour every time I bring home some oats.  I put it in my Ninja Mixer until it is a flour consistency.  Then I always have some on hand.

Then I used the electric hand mixer again. I started on low speed while pouring in some almond milk and then switched to medium speed until all the ingredients were blended.

Next I added in some gluten free quick cook oats and gave another quick blend with the electric mixer.

I dumped in some of the chocolate chips and reserved some for the topping.

Then I stirred in the chocolate chips with a rubber spatula.

Next I scraped the batter into a round cake pan that I had greased and lined with parchment paper.  If you are not going to ice the cake you may want to bake it in a springform pan.

Before baking I sprinkled the reserved 1/4 cup of chocolate chips over top of the batter.

I baked the cake in a preheated 350F oven for 50-60 minutes or until a thoothpick inserted in the center came out clean.

After the cake cooled in the pan for about 15 minutes, I loosened along the edges with a knife and turned it out onto a serving plate.

This gluten free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake is a light snack or dessert that will be enjoyed by young and old alike!

Or if you are like my family you like all your cakes iced!  Either way slice and enjoy!
