Makes about 30 cookies
|2 cups NOW Real Food® Rolled Oats*|
|3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons spelt flour|
|1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon|
|1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg|
|1/8 teaspoon sea salt|
|1/2 cup high-heat sunflower oil or Ellyndale™ Organic Canola Oil|

|2 teaspoons NOW Real Food® Vanilla Extract*|
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Place oats in a medium saucepan and toast over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until oats are slightly golden and fragrant, about 3 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, maple syrup and vanilla until combined.
- Add maple mixture to oat mixture and stir to combine completely; the dough should still be warm.
- Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Gently flatten dough with wet fingers and bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
- Cool cookies on a wire rack, then store them in an airtight container.
