Ginger Currant Cookies (Paleo, Vegan)
Deliciously chewy Paleo and Vegan ginger cookies studded with organic currants.
Ginger oatmeal cookies were always my thing when I first started learning about nutrition. I would make these little vegan rounds packed with organic raisins, heapings of ginger, and organic oats. I would eat them for breakfast, in between classes in college, or with a little coconut cream for dessert.
Since following a grain-free lifestyle for so long now, I had almost forgotten about the yummy ginger cookies I used to bake until my mum sent me a picture of some she had made this week at the land. She said they were so delicious and that I just had to create a paleo version for all of you to enjoy too.
I got a little creative in the kitchen and voila! I bring you paleo and vegan ginger currant cookies.
THE DETAILS ON THESE COOKIES
- The cookie dough should be thick and easy to form. If it's too runny for any reason, add a little more of your homemade paleo flour blend.
- Quality of the currants is key here. Raisins just won't taste the same! I buy organic currants sweetened only with fruit juice. You can find them at health food stores or on the internet. Be aware of currants sold with added sugars. If you can't find them, I would recommended replacing with little sugar-free dark chocolate chips or leaving them out altogether and enjoying these as soft ginger snap cookies.
- If you are a vegan and following this recipe, be sure to use coconut oil and maple syrup rather than butter and raw honey.
Let me know if you have any questions! I hope you enjoy these delicious baked goodies as much as we do.

1) Preheat the oven to 375F and lightly grease a baking tray with coconut oil or butter.
2) In a large mixing bowl or food processor, mix all of the ingredients together except for the currants.
3) Add in currants by hand and roll dough into a ball.
