How to make Vegan Cranberry & Orange Cookies:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Into a small bowl, add ground flaxseed and water. Whisk to combine and set aside.

Add the flaxseed/water mixture, orange zest, and orange juice. Continue mixing until well blended.

Stir in cranberries and walnuts until evenly distributed.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.  Cookies should be spaced at least 2 inches apart.

Bake 12-14 minutes until the edges are golden.  Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

Drizzle glaze over the tops of cooled cookies. Let stand until set.

 

Can I substitute the walnuts for a different type of nut?

Sure! I think pecans, pistachios or macadamia nuts would also work well.

Can I omit the nuts altogether?

Absolutely! Just increase the amount of cranberries by 1/2 cup and you’re all set.
