Let’s make these pretty blood orange cookies for Valentine’s Day! I saw them on one of the popular food sites The Feed Feed via @lmthompson via @bethbierema – I want to make sure I give credit because there’s no way I would come up with a vegan cookie recipe that is this delicious, and only four ingredients. Aren’t they just adorable? Make a double batch and share with a friend!
If you are new here today, every Sunday my friends and I share our favorite finds of the week! Sometimes it’s a recipe like today and other finds from the week. Mary Ann, Cindy and I talk or text throughout the week to talk about blog stufff, but on Sundays, it’s always a surprise!
Vegan Blood Orange Cookies with only 4 ingredientsPrint
blood orange cookies
Recipe from The Feed Feed
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 12 minutes
- Total Time: 22 minutes
- Yield: 12 1x
- Category: dessert
- 1 cup almond flour
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/2 tablespoon blood orange zest, from one orange
- 1 teaspoon blood orange juice
- 1/ 8 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
- 1 1/ 2 tablespoons blood orange juice
- Pinch of salt
- 1/ 2 tablespoon blood orange zest, from one orange
- Preheat oven to 350º and line baking sheet with parchment paper
- Add almond flour, maple syrup, orange zest, orange juice, and salt to a medium-sized bowl and stir with a spoon. The mixture will come together with the more you mix, don’t be tempted to add more liquid.
- Using a small cookie scoop, scoop the batter and place the mound or ball on the baking sheet. Place balls onto a baking sheet about 1” apart. Flatten balls with the bottom of a cup until about 1/4” thick, making sure the tops are fairly flat.
- Pop the tray into the refrigerator for a few minutes. This helps them from spreading while baking.
- Place baking sheet into the center of the oven and bake for 13-14 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet and then move to a cooling rack. They won’t get very golden on the tops but will be golden on the bottom.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the sifted powdered sugar, orange juice, essential oil, and a pinch of salt. Whisk together until a smooth, thick glaze forms. Add more sugar if needed to thicken, or a little orange juice to thin it.
- Once cookies are completely cool, start to glaze your cookies. Dip each cookie into the glaze. Place on the rack. Sprinkle the glazed half with a little more orange zest.

2. The color brown is hot these days
I am loving tobacco brown, chocolate brown, whatever you want to call it, so when I saw Sarah of Sarah London Style wearing a brown dress that she created using Dylon Espresso Brown dye, I loved it and will be trying this method. Have you heard of Dylon Washing Machine Pods? You can use it with front load washing machines. I plan to try it soon for more pojects like this.
Make sure to follow Sarah on her instgram @sarahlondonstyle
Are you playing Wordle? It’s a daily word game and it’s so much fun! Our family plays it first thing every morning and we share our scores in the family chat. Such a fun way to connect with our family first thing every day and maybe even improve my Scrabble skills. Yesterday I saw my friend Meredith post the above photo on her Instagram, @mermade_brooklynnny! Meredith embroidered my denim jacket, you can see it in this post. She is so creative!
4. Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon is by far my favorite essential oil for smell and cleaning purposes. I recently used it as a powerful laundry stain remover. I washed an entire load of dark t-shirts with chapstick! I somehow didn’t realize it and tossed the entire load into the dryer. Which means the stains were set into the fabric. I laid out the stained shirts applied lemon essential oil straight onto each stain front and back and tossed it back into the wash. The grease stains came out on every shirt in one wash! Lemon has superpowers. You can buy a bottle from me! That’s how much I Love it! Click this link to buy a bottle of lemon!
Use Lemon Essential Oil to remove sticky residue safely and without chemicals
Another great way to use lemon is to add it to sticky residue on a glass jar to remove it easily without using a harch chemical. Just lay a piece of paper towel over the area with the sticky residue and cover the towel with a few drops of lemon essential oil. Let it sit for a few minutes and then wipe clean. It works on many surfaces, but I often use on glass jars to re-purpose them.
5. Things that are Pink
With Valentine’s Day coming up, I am finding a lot of things that I love that are pink. Maybe because it’s on my mind, but after Cindy Posted about this jacket from Old Navy, I ordered it in pink! And then I found so many other lovely pink things!
- Bandana // 2. Veja Sneakers // 3. Dior Lip Balm // 4. Machete Hair Claw // 5. Anorak Jacket // 6. Shealring Suede Birkenstocks // 7. Liberty Print Shirt // 8. Flower Flash book
Dusty Pink….it pairs well with everything from charcoal gray to light gray, white, black, all shades of denim and camel. It’s basically a “basic” and perfect for ushering in a little spring!
Flower Flash – Have you been lucky enough to spot one of these floral installations on a street sign or in a trash can? I have not, but one day I will! My friend told me about it and I now follow the artist, Lewis Miller on instagram, so hopefully one day. Read more here!
