Notes
I have made these without the molasses and maple extract and they were just as amazing! If you use the measuring cup for coconut oil first then for the molasses, it will slide out with ease. When spooning the batter onto your cookie sheet it can get sticky but wetting your hands helps to pat them together. *If you need these to be egg free, cut the oats to 1½ cups and pulse them in food processor to get them a tad grounded up. Use ½ cup water with ½ cup ground flax, forming a gooey liquid. Adding few tablespoons of chia is helpful to when not using eggs.
