Gingerbread Cookies with Cranberries and Walnuts

chewy gingerbread cookies

These chewy cookies are great for a cookie exchange or to bring to a holiday party!
I had some orange zest and pre ground clove/allspice mix from making Gingerbread, so I put it to use in this cookie recipe for a get together the next day. I know zesting citrus can be a pain, but it definitely pays off in flavor for these yummy cookies!

Makes 30 cookies.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare baking sheet with layer of parchment paper.

1/2 butter
1/4c coconut sugar
1/4c maple syrup
1/4c molasses
1tbs ground flax mixed with 2tbs water
1/4c almond milk
1tbs packed orange zest
1tsp baking soda
1tsp ginger
1tsp cinnamon
1/2tsp ground cloves
1/2tsp ground allspice
1/4tsp salt
1/2 c chopped walnuts
1/2c cranberries

Cream together butter, sugar and orange zest.
