  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add flax egg, syrup, coconut oil, orange juice and zest to the bowl and mix together with a spatula until it forms a thick, pliable dough.
  • Roll pieces of dough in your hands to form tablespoon-sized balls. Place each ball on the baking sheet and repeat until no dough remains. Gently flatten with your hands and bake on the center rack for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before icing.
  • For the icing, whisk together the powdered sugar and almond milk until smooth. Beat in orange extract than drizzle the icing over the cookies!
