1 tsp high-quality pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups old-fashioned oats

2 Preheat oven to 375 ˚F. Line baking sheets with parchment and set aside.
3 Blend the first four ingredients in food processor for 30 seconds. Add the eggs and blend well. Add the oats, flour, baking soda and salt, and pulse a few times until oats are coarsely chopped and blended.
