  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before icing.
  5. For the icing, whisk together the powdered sugar and almond milk until smooth. Beat in orange extract than drizzle the icing over the cookies!
