In a saucepan, add water, sliced butter, maple syrup and salt. Bring to boil and let the butter melts completely.
Remove from heat and stir in the oats and starch, mix with the wooden spoon until the dough ball is formed.
Let it cook over low heat for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
Bring off the heat, let it cool a bit, then add one egg (and vanilla) at a time, beating well after each addition, until it’s fully incorporated into the dough.
Transfer the dough into a piping bag, and pipe the churros onto a lined baking tray.
