2 tsp Sunkist® Navel Orange zest

¼ cup coconut oil

⅔ cup coconut sugar or brown sugar

1 egg, room temperature

½ cup pumpkin purée

1¼ tsp pumpkin spice

½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp sea salt

1¼ cup white spelt flour

 

Orange Glaze Ingredients

3 tbsp Sunkist Navel Orange, fresh squeezed

2 tsp Sunkist Navel Orange zest

1 cup powdered sugar or powdered monk fruit

Pinch of salt

Cinnamon, for garnish

1 Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2 In a large bowl or a stand mixer, combine and cream together the coconut oil and coconut sugar. Beat in the egg and purée until well combined and smooth.

3 In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt, and pumpkin spice. Stir together until evenly combined.

4 Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Then, add the grated orange zest and mix until well combined. The dough will be wetter than most cookies, similar to a thick cake batter. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes.

5 Use a 2 tbsp cookie scoop to place the dough on the prepared baking sheet.

6 Bake for 12–15 minutes. The cookies are done when the edges start to golden and the tops are slightly firm.

7 Remove cookies from the oven and let them sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

8 While the cookies are cooling, combine the powdered sugar or powdered monk fruit in a bowl with the orange zest and salt.

9 Add 1 tsp of orange juice at a time until the glaze is thin enough to easily coat the cookie but not watery.

10 Once cookies are cooled, add 1 to 2 tsp of orange glaze to each cookie. Garnish with additional orange zest or a sprinkle of cinnamon.
