For the cookies:
In a medium bowl, use a fork to mix together oil, sugar, maple syrup, and milk. Milk for at least 1 minute (until it resembles apple sauce). Then mix in the vanilla.
Sift in the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, stirring as you add them.
Once all the ingredients are added, mix until you’ve got a pliable dough. Mix with your hands if needed.
Roll the dough into walnut-sized balls. Pat into the sugar topping to flatten into roughly 2-inch disks. Transfer to the baking sheets, sugar-side up, at least 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. They should be a bit browned on the bottoms.
Let cool on the sheets for 5 minutes, then tranfser to a cooling rack to let cool completely.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Bake for 12 minutes.
