Orange Almond Cookies

1 1/3 cups almond meal
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 egg
100g/4oz jaggery or coconut sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons orange zest

ICING (optional)
2 teaspoons orange juice
1/4 cup powdered raw sugar

Yields ca. 25
In a bowl, combine almond meal, coconut flour and baking soda. Set aside.

In another bowl, beat egg and sugar until creamy. Stir in coconut oil and orange zest. Mix wet and dry ingredients until well combined. Wrap dough tightly in cling wrap and keep refrigerated for at least one hour.

Preheat oven to 165C/350F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Form balls of the size of a walnut and place them two inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Let cool completely on wire rack.

Mix icing sugar and lemon juice together until it becomes a creamy paste. Drizzle over the cooled cookies. Let the frosting become solid before serving.
