For Mamas - No Bake Apple Cinnamon Lactation Bites
Whip up these delicious and nutritious lactation bites in minutes. Oats are a key ingredient in these bites for their potential to increase milk supply, aka "glactogogues". Also a great source of iron, oats are beneficial for mamas experiencing low iron during pregnancy and after childbirth. Low iron in the body can reduce milk supply! Eat 'em up, mama!
1 cup Oats (quick or traditional)
1/4 cup Ground Flax Seed
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/3 cup Almond Butter
2 tbsps Dark Grade Maple Syrup
- 1 Apple (peeled, cored and finely diced)
Combine oats, ground flaxseed and cinnamon together in a bowl. Mix well. Add almond butter, maple syrup and diced apples. Mix well again.
Roll the dough into balls about the size of a golf ball. Wet hands before rolling to prevent sticking.
Place the bites on a plate and let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to firm. Then transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. Enjoy!
