Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bake at 350 degrees, 12 - 14 minutes, about 32 cookies, yes, this is also a vegan cookie recipe.
  2. To begin this healthy cookie recipe blend dry ingredients with a spoon.
  3. Take the zest of one orange and add to the dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients. Next dice the rest of the orange (pulp and all) into tiny pieces, mix orange pieces with the wet ingredients.
  4. Combine dry and wet ingredients . . . stir with a spoon. An electric blender will diminish the cake/truffle like texture.
  5. Roll a full teaspoon of cookie dough in the palm of hand, place on aluminum foil or parchment paper about one inch apart, flatten slightly, sprinkle top with hint of sugar. Turbinado . . . sugar in the raw is nice.
  6. Bake 350° 12-14 minutes. Cool.
  7. The cookie retains its shape and becomes puffy. The final cookie is dense and cake like. This is a low sugar, intense flavor adult type cookie, nice for a mid morning or mid afternoon pick me up.
