Protein Lactation Bites

Maternity leave is over, and since returning to work, I am afraid that my supply is dropping. These are awesome little bites that give me the energy to get through a long day of teaching and add a protein punch for my evening workouts. It doesn’t hurt that they are packed with galactagogues!

1/2 cup nut butter
2 T. coconut oil – melted
1/4 cup honey
3 T. brewers yeast
3 T. flax seed meal
1 cup oats
1/4 cup cocoa powder

1. In a food processor on the lowest setting, blend together nut butter, coconut oil, and honey. Once incorporated, add brewers yeast and flax and blend until smooth. Add oats and blend until it begins to form a ball.
2. Roll into 1/2 inch balls. If too crumbly add a little more honey. If too wet, add a little more oatmeal.
3. Put cocoa powder into a bowl, and in small batches, roll the balls into it to coat.
4. Refrigerate until firm and enjoy!
