Vegan Orange Cranberry Breakfast Cookies

When I was making this recipe, I wanted to create a lower sugar cookie that was fruity + light but after a few trials I realized this recipe would be better as a breakfast cookie/biscuit/scone! If you want to keep the recipe on the low sugar side, enjoy it without the glaze + take them on your way to class. If you want a sweeter breakfast, add the glaze!


  • 1/2 cup Vegan Butter
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Orange Juice
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 cup Cranberries


  • ½ cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Orange Juice


#1] Preheat oven to 350 degrees
#2] In a large bowl, cream the butter + sugar together until smooth then add the orange juice + vanilla extract
#3] Pour flour, baking powder, + baking soda into the same bowl – mix the dry ingredients a little before full incorporating the dry into the wet ingredients. Add in cranberries once dough has been formed
#4] Roll dough into 1 inch balls on a baking sheet – this dough will not spread much so shape them how you would like the end result to look!
#5] Bake for 12-14 minutes + create glaze while the cookies bake.
#6] Once cookies have cooled, dip cookies in glaze or drizzle the glaze on top of the cookies + enjoy!
