No-Bake Galacta-Bites

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.
