These lactation boosting energy bites are a favourite snack of ours and everyone who tries them loves them. They’re great for boosting your milk supply, but they’re also a great snack regardless if you’re breastfeeding or not.
The oats, seeds, and brewers yeast all help build your supply. I would notice a difference between days that I snacked on them throughout the day compared to days I didn’t have any so if you’re looking to boost your supply make sure you always pack some in a baggy when you’re going out for the day!
Since I’ve stopped breastfeeding I’ve actually adapted this recipe as a snack for Logan. I omit the brewer’s yeast, and I use 1/2 cup peanut butter and 1/2 cup almond butter. That way he is able to get a bit of extra calcium from the almond butter. I do half and half because almond butter alone makes them a bit too soft, plus it’s a lot pricier than peanut butter.
These lactation boosting energy bites are seriously so good! I always make sure to prepare a double batch because we go through them so quickly. They’re also super easy to make. The hardest part is rolling them into balls, sometimes it can take a while so turn on your favourite show and turn it into some me time <3
If you’re worried about all of the energy bites sticking together you can layer parchment paper in between the layers of your container. Although, I’ve never had an issue as long as I don’t pack the container too full.
