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 bitesSee 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?

Me on the left, Penny on the right, glowing like always. 🙂

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:

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?

Will you join me in making a batch of these 4 ingredient no bake chewy oatmeal raisin cookies to celebrate one of the best big sisters EVER? 🙂

Happy Birthday Penny! Your love and support are a gift and a blessing I always work hard to try and deserve. ❤

4 Ingredient No Bake Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (Gluten-Free, Vegan, Dairy-Free, Protein-Rich)


Description

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.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup natural, unsalted creamy almond butter
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 ½ cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins, packed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large, microwave-safe bowl, add almond butter and maple syrup. Whisk together until well mixed.
  3. Heat in 20-second increments in the microwave until warm and fragrant, and the mixture begins to dry out and become fluffy (about 4-7 rounds). Whisk in between heating increments. *Stovetop instructions in Notes.
  4. Add oats, raisins, and cinnamon, if using, to the almond butter mixture. Stir and fold until thoroughly combined.
  5. Using a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop and drop balls of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet, evenly spaced apart. Using a fork, flatten cookies to desired thickness.
  6. Chill in the freezer for 15-25 mins, until firm. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.

Notes

– Adapted from my 3 Ingredient No Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies.
– Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or at room temperature for up to 1 month. After the first day, you can store them at room temperature—they’ll be more firm.
– *Stovetop Instructions: In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, add almond butter and maple syrup. Whisk until well incorporated. Stir occasionally, heating until this mixture begins to bubble. Remove from heat and carefully pour over the dry mixture.

  1. I can’t wait to try these!
    I also have been meaning to ask about the printing option on your recipes. Every time I’ve tried to do this, the recipes show up as a black page. This never happens with other on line printing I do from my phone. No idea what’s causing it, I just thought I’d let you know.

    1. Let me know how you like them. 🙂 My apologies about the printing–try printing it from a computer. That might work. Sometimes the printing option gets a little buggy. I’m working on changing/fixing a few things with the site in the next few months. Thank you for your patience. 🙂

  2. We still eat the flu fat gluten full cookies. But these have me convinced we can trade some recipes for healthier ones

  3. I’ve seen several versions of this type of cookie, but I have to say, you’ve actually made them look appetizing! I mean, I love the ingredients, but every photo I’ve ever seen, they look dark and kind of like mud. Not these! I’m definitely going to try them. My daughter has peanut allergies, so I know she’ll love this with the almond butter.

    1. Oh. Haha, thank you! 🙂 I can’t wait to hear what you and your daughter think, Lisa. 🙂

  4. You two seem like you have a fantastic relationship… I love it! Happy Birthday Penny!! And these cookies, well they look gorgeous as always 😀
