Notes
The Grand Marnier adds a special taste to this dessert, but if you don't have any on hand you can substitute orange juice (and add a little grated orange rind).

Make this gluten-free by using gluten-free rolled oats, and substitute a gluten-free all purpose flour blend for the regular flour.
