  • The zest and the juice from one large orange
  • 1/2 of a cup of maple syrup
  • 1/4 of a cup of applesauce
  • 1/2 of a tsp. of vanilla
  • One tbsp. of melted coconut butter (can sub nut butter of choice)
  • 3/4 of a cup of chopped fresh or frozen cranberries, plus 1/4 of a cup for topping

How to make:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the wet ingredients, except for the cranberries, to the dry ingredients and mix until fully combined.
  4. Fold the 3/4 cup of cranberries into the batter.
  5. Using a large spoon, place a scoop of the batter onto the lined baking sheet and spread out the batter to form a cookie. Repeat this until your batter is used up (my batch yielded nine large cookies.)
  6. Top the cookies with additional chopped cranberries.
  7. Bake the cookies for about 25 minutes, or until they are baked all the way through.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
