Tuaca Oatmeal Cookies…directly from heaven (can be gluten free and vegan!)

from the folks at liveluvcreate.com

This has nothing to do with booze except for the fact that if you make them, you might want to hide them so that drunk you doesn’t eat a whole batch. As it is, you might want to put them in a time-locked capsule that will only allow you to open it every 12 hours and remove one cookie. Not like I’m the cookie police.

Oh, and the Tuaca. Who needs vanilla extract when there is Tuaca in the world.


1 1/2 Cup Trader Joes Gluten-Free Oats (uncooked) or other oats if you don’t worry about such things
1 1/2 Cup GF all purpose flour (again, regular flour is ok too)
Couple shakes cinnamon, maybe some nutmeg
Half a shot of  Tuaca (if you don’t have Tuaca, vanilla extract will have to do).
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 pinch sea salt
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil (I love coconut oil in baking, it’s so moist and sticky it’s easy not to use eggs)
1 egg if you think it’s necessary
A small banana would be nice, well ripened. If you are not using the egg, definitely use the banana but you can use both.

Mix ingredients. If you decide not to use the egg, you can totally eat the cookie dough to your heart’s delight but the raw oats may prove to be an obstacle. Anyway, I eat some of it. A little cookie dough, a little nip of Tuaca. Make them as big as you want, just remember the time-locked capsule principle. If you make them pancake size and eat 2 of them, that’s on you buster. Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes and you’re golden. You probably want to leave them sit for about five minutes so they don’t fall apart but you may not be able to wait that long.
