  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the brown rice syrup; maple syrup; orange zest; brown sugar; and coconut milk. Add the ginger; coconut; barley flour; baking powder and mix until just incorporated. Add the cranberries and pistachios and mix again. Chill the batter for 15 minutes.
  3. Drop tablespoons of the cookie dough onto the lined baking sheet. Gently roll each scoop into a ball – if they are a little sticky lightly dust your hands with some flour or a mixture of flour and coconut.
  4. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes until they are lightly golden. Keep an eye on them as you do not want them to burn. Allow them to cool on the tray for a few minutes before moving them to a cooling rack to cool fully.
