Pre-heat oven to 350°. Grease pan (we use a 9x11, but can be done in an 8x8 or similar in a pinch).
In small mixing bowl, pour boiling water over oats, add ½ c. margarine and let mixture stand for 20 minutes.
In larger bowl, mix together 1 c. granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, flour, and baking powder, baking soda. Add in oat mixture and eggs, and beat well.
Pour into greased pan and bake at 350° for 35 - 40 minutes.
