Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, crack two eggs and whisk them until they are well incorporated.
Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir well. If the mixture seems too runny, let it sit for about 5 minutes to allow the oats to absorb some of the liquid.
Take about 2 heaped tablespoons of the batter and form 6 cookies on the baking tray. You do not need to flatten the cookies, you can leave the batter in 6 2-inch balls. Repeat on the remaining baking tray.
Bake one tray at a time, for 16 minutes. The cookies will be slightly firm to touch, but not hard. They will continue to harden once you remove them from the oven. Do not over-bake them. After the first tray is done, repeat with the second tray. Place the cookies on a cooling rack before storing.
