  3. In a large bowl whisk oats, oat flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well combined.

  5. Using a Tbsp. measuring spoon, scoop out rounded balls of dough and press gently onto lined baking sheet. Cookies will not expand much so you can pack them close together.

  7. Let cookies rest on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack to cool. Cookies will keep in airtight container on counter for up to 3 days or in refrigerator for up to a week.
