These vegan Ginger Goji Cookies aren’t totally christmas-y but kiiind of christmas-y, if you know what I mean. They are perfect to ease you into the christmas mood. And now I’m so, so, so excited for Christmas – who is with me? These cookies are really easy to make and don’t need long for the dough to rest.. only about 15 minutes… until the oven has preheated. They are so good and the perfect use for all those leftover goji berries I had in the pantry.

Don’t have any goji berries at home? No problem! You can also use any other dried fruits like raisins or cranberries.. those will be great too, especially in combination with the light ginger taste.

I’ve mixed the dough in my Kitchen Aid. So easy! Then I added in the goji berries and let the dough rest in the fridge for a couple of minutes.

Ingredients
 
 

  • 1/4 cup vegan butter (EarthBalance, Alsan,...), softened
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon almond milk or your preferred plant-based milk
  • 1 tablespoon goji berries

Instructions
 

  • Combine the softened butter, sugar and almond butter and let it whisk in a kitchen machine or by hand. Mix the flour, baking powder and ground ginger in a separate bowl. Add the flour slowly into the butter-sugar-almond butter mixture until a crumbly dough forms. Add the almond milk and whisk or let whisk until the dough holds together. Fold in the goji berries and knead until the dough looks like in the photo above.
  • Let the dough rest in the fridge for about 15 minutes, meanwhile preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C.
  • Divide the dough in six equal pieces, roll them into balls and press them flat. Place them on a baking sheet bake for about 10 minutes until they start to get a slight golden color. Let them cool off completely before eating.

I have been looking for a great ginger biscuit recipe for ages and this is it! Easy to make too for a non-baker like me. I took the liberty of substituting the goji berries for glace ginger and it really added something I think. Next time I will double the recipe because It only made six which were gone in a flash! Thanks for this.

I really hope you get a KitchenAid for Christmas too! I'm so excited for you already haha :D Goji berries are awesome. Too bad my goji berry plant didn't produce any fruit this year. I'd have loved to try out fresh and juicy ones for a change.
