Recipe Notes

  • If you only have regular oats, just place them in a blender and pulse them for a short time to break them into rough, smaller pieces
  • If using salted butter omit the added salt.
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container on the counter.

Here's how to make it:

  1. About 10 minutes before starting, place separated egg whites and milk into two small bowls and set aside on the counter. Then melt butter and set aside to cool.
  2. After 10 minutes combine all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl mix melted butter (or coconut oil), egg whites and vanilla. Blend in the molasses and then add milk. Stir.
  4. Add dry ingredients into the wet and mix well. Place into the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Place a piece of parchment on a baking sheet and divide the batter into 13 to 15 balls. Flatten them with a spatula. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes. Don’t overbake! A little give in the middle is just fine.
  6. Cool for a few minutes and serve warm for breakfast of a coffee break.
