Strawberries & Cream Lactation Bites
These no-bake snack bites contain oats and brewer’s yeast, both of which tend to encourage milk production. But they’re not just for lactating mothers- they can be used as energy bites for anyone (I might keep some at my bedside for midnight feedings!)
I used mixed nut and seed butter I found at Costco (which has almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and ground flax), but you can use any nut or seed butter!
I used Juice Plus vanilla protein powder, but you could use collagen peptides or protein powder of choice. I found freeze-dried strawberries at Trader Joe’s
2 cups old fashioned or rolled oats
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
1/2 -2/3 cup chopped freeze dried strawberries (1 cup before chopped)
1/2 cup white choc chips, chopped
1 cup nut or seed butter
1/2 cup honey
3 tbsp brewers yeast
Mix all ingredients together and form into balls (a little smaller than a golf ball). If they seem too dry, melt 1 tbsp coconut oil and mix it in.
This made 38 bites (I probably could have stretched to 40 but I didn’t measure).
