Lactation Energy Bites
Whenever a friend has a baby I make them these super yummy lactation bites! Not sure how much they really help with the milk production, but they are delicious and packed full of nutritious ingredients so they’re fantastic to have anyway! It’s a quick easy snack that you can keep in the fridge or freezer and just grab whenever you’re feeling hungry. Not a new mom? Just leave out the brewer’s yeast and you’ll have plain energy bites. 🙂
Customize your bites with your favorite nut butter, chocolate chips, dried fruits, and chopped nuts! I used dark chocolate chips and pepitas for these ones. You can also just press into a pan, refrigerate a bit, and cut into squares instead of rolling into balls.
Lactation Energy Bites (adapted from The Baker Mama)
- 2 cups old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
- 3 tablespoons brewer’s yeast (find in the nutrition/supplements section)
- 1 cup peanut butter, almond butter, other favorite nut butter – feel free to mix
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or other favorite chocolate
- optional – 1/2 cup chopped nuts or dried fruits
Dump all ingredients except chocolate chips/mix ins into a bowl. Combine thoroughly then add in chocolate chips or other mix ins. Roll about 2 tablespoons of mixture into a ball and place on a cookie sheet. Or press mixture into a pan. If mixture doesn’t stick together there might be too many mix ins. Add some more peanut butter and honey.
Refrigerate about 30 minutes. Cut panned mixture into squares. Enjoy!
