4 Ingredient No Bake Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (V, GF): an easy recipe for delightfully chewy no bake cookies bursting with raisins and cinnamon flavor! Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free.
Guess what? It’s my big sister Penny’s birthday!! (Well, not today, but pretty close). And in my family, we celebrate the usual way: with FOOD.
Did you really think it’d be any other way? 🙂
Today, we’re gonna celebrate Penny’s birthday with cookies! Make that 4 Ingredient No Bake Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Anyone else feel like making a batch of these with maybe a generous dash of funfetti to help us celebrate? 🎉
And making a batch of vegan gluten free chocolate cupcakes topped with all the funfetti? Just sayin’.
Speaking of which, I should totally make a no bake funfetti cookie recipe. What do you think? Any takers or no? And if I did make these, would you be totally weirded out by peanut butter, almond butter, or any other nut butter being in it? How about adding some birthday sprinkles to these gluten free oatmeal raisin cookies? 🤔 😋
I’ve really got to stop putting nut butter in everything… From peanut butter no bake energy bites to vegan almond butter chocolate chip walnut oat cookies, and these 4 ingredient no bake chocolate peanut butter oatmeal cookies, to these no bake almond butter paleo brownie bites. See what I mean?
But honestly, it’s the easiest and tastiest way to make treats all nutrient-rich and such. (Why did I hear that in a cowboy-like twang in my head?) 🤠 ← Who’s ever seen this guy?
Back to what I was saying, did I tell you that Penny is the best big sister EVER? In addition to Monica and Jenny (my other best big sisters), of course. 🙂 She’s been so, so unwaveringly supportive of the blog, and jokingly refers to herself as the President of the Beaming Baker Fan Club. Of which there are like 4 total members. Ahem. 😉
Meanwhile, she’s been reading & baking from food blogs since the beginning. Now, I have to give a shoutout to her favorite food blog of all time: smitten kitchen. Okay, her second favorite food blog of all time. Double Ahem. 😉
So when she tells me that she’s as devoted to Beaming Baker as she is to Deb (the Queen of everything food blogging, duh), I’m like, WHAAAAAA? And thank you!! And what things should I bake/make/engrave with your image to repay you for that compliment?
Also, how and when should I give you all the shoutouts in my post on how to start a food blog?
Also also, you should know that she deserves all the credit for requesting/pestering me about/gently nudging me towards developing these fan favorite recipes:
- Homemade Chunky Paleo Granola with Clusters
- 3 Ingredient Homemade KIND Coconut Almond Bar Recipe
- Gluten Free Trail Mix Cookies
- 4 Ingredient No Bake Peanut Butter Coconut Oatmeal Cookies
Anyway, it’s just that her faith and support in me and this little blog is one of the biggest reasons why I keep going. Sometimes I feel such all-consuming doubt, sometimes I just feel too friggin overwhelmed, and sometimes I just don’t know if I’m doing everything as well as I should be.
Then, I see a note from her. And I know I can keep going.
The last time she visited, she left all these little sticky notes of love and encouragement all over my kitchen. And sometimes, when I’m in the middle of recipe testing trials, totally unsure of myself, one neon pink note catches my eye.
I read it, and it keeps me going.
How lucky am I?
