Preheat oven to 180°C (390°F).
Place the oats into a food processor and pulse to form a flour-like consistency.
Add the ground almonds, maple syrup, vanilla and coconut oil. Pulse again and you may need to add up to 2 teaspoons of cold water until the mixture forms a doughy consistency.
Roll the mixture into balls using a tablespoon as a measuring tool and press down with the back of a folk. Place the biscuits onto a trays lined with baking paper (leave plenty of room between them).
