from The Golden Door Cookbook

2 large eggs, at room temperature
3 large egg whites, at room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 3/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 whole wheat flour
Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray 2 baking sheets with vegetable oil spray.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the eggs, egg whites, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and both sugars. Beat at high speed until doubled in volume and the mixture forms a ribbon when the beaters are raised. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the oats and flour.
Drop tablespoon-sized mounds of dough onto the baking sheets, leaving about an inch between each one. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the cookies are lightly browned. Immediately lift the cookies from the baking sheets and cool on wire racks.
