In food processor or bowl add:
1 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 Cup Oat Meal
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2 t Cinnamon
Pulse to mix or use your fork or pastry cutter to combine.
Add:
1 Cup Butter, cut into pieces
Cut into flour mixture with pastry cutter or pulse in food processor until it resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle on top of batter in baking dish making sure the edges are fully covered. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until tester comes out clean.

Background: This coffee cake is so moist and delicious and is so easy to make! I first had this coffee cake at my friend Susan's and loved it. My kids love waking up on a Sunday morning to the smell of this baking. I use whole wheat flour, oat meal and olive oil in an attempt to make it somewhat healthy without compromising the flavor. If you don't have whole wheat flour, olive oil or oats on hand you can use what you have, like white flour and vegetable oil. Either way I think it will become a family favorite for you as it is for us! xo
