After receiving Lactation Cookies for my Birthday, I got to thinking…what other recipes could I come up with that were both yummy AND full of galactagogues?!
I was first introduced to Birds & Bees Teas by Kelly at New Leaf Wellness. And after my second birth, she sent me a tin of their Our Lady of La Leche Tea, which became the inspiration for this recipe.
I started with a simple no-bake energy bite, because let’s face it, what breastfeeding Mama couldn’t use a little more energy?! After the first attempt, I quickly realized that the ground tea had a very strong anise/licorice flavor from the fennel seeds and I would need to do some tweaking to blend the flavors. The almond butter & popcorn (my own personal galactagogue) mellowed out the flavors & added the perfect amount of crunch.
- 1 C Quick Oats
- 1 C Almond Butter
- 1 C Chocolate Chips
- 1 C Shredded Coconut
- 1 C Crushed Popcorn
- 1/2 C Ground Flax Seeds
- 1/4 C Honey
- 1/4 C Melted Coconut Oil
- 1/4 C Birds & Bees Teas – Ground Our Lady of La Leche Tea (I used a coffee grinder to grind the loose leaf tea)
Mix all ingredients using a dough hook on an electric mixer (a wooden spoon & some serious “elbow grease” could work too), form into bite-sized balls, refrigerate until you’re ready to eat, enjoy!
Warning: You may need to hide these from your family…they’re THAT good!
