Oatmeal Raisin Bites (plant-based, gluten-free)

Oatmeal Raisin Bites (plant-based, gluten-free)

Imagine a sweet, creamy bite of oatmeal peanut butter raisin cookie dough. Now imagine it without flour or butter or sugar! These oatmeal raisin bites are plant-based, gluten-free, with no refined sugar, and they're a wonderfully delicious treat to keep in the freezer and grab anytime.

For today's inspiration, some days we just need to begin again. Start fresh. Appreciate the sunrise and the new day before us.

I received a wonderful email from a friend recently that had this lovely message:

New day,

new you,

new me,

new everyone around me

Maybe we all need a second chance sometimes. If someone is not being wonderful to us, or if we are not being wonderful to someone else, maybe it's because there is some suffering that we haven't taken care of yet. Maybe if we can take gentle care of it, we can all resume being wonderful to each other again.

Maybe today is the day.

The recipe below is #284 of our 1,000 Food Experiments to create sustainable meals for our family and hopefully yours. Thanks to Dani and Trader Joe's for inspiration!

  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
