No-Bake Triple Chip Lactation Bites

 

28341097_10155478698998196_335716544_oAny recipe that begins with no-bake is my kind of cookin’, and anything that has “triple chip” in the name is my kind of food. Give me all the no-bake easy chocolate recipes that you’ve got!

I have been nursing Austin for just over a month now, and I am pretty pleased with how it’s been going so far. I give him one bottle of formula a night (if that), and the rest is good ol’ breastmilk. This whole “breastfeeding journey” is new to me, as I didn’t produce enough to nurse Audrey longer than a few weeks. (You can read all about that here.)

If I am being 100% honest, I’m not in love with breastfeeding. I don’t feel comfortable doing it in public (although I have)… I have zero I-am-a-breastfeeding-woman-hear-me-roar feels about it.. I’m just doing it because it’s good for him! Bonus factors are that it saves a TON of money, and the baby weight is coming off rather effortlessly.

I don’t have a certain amount of time that I plan on breastfeeding for, but I know that I don’t want a lack of supply to be the reason I stop.

Enter- Lactation Bites.

These things are simple  to make, y’all. Not to mention, they are freakin’ delicious.

Ingredients like rolled oats, almond butter, and ground flaxseed all are said to help milk production. (I read it on the internet, so it has to be true 😉 )

I like to have these in the fridge for a quick snack. The three different kinds of chocolate morsels (semi-sweet, milk and white chocolate) tackle any kind of chocolate craving that I am having, and they provide some healthy calories and fat to keep milk production up.

I have even given them to my toddler (remember this recipe contains honey- so don’t give them to a baby younger than recommended by your ped!), and she LOVES them.

NO-BAKE TRIPLE CHIP LACTATION BITES

2 cups rolled oats

1 cup almond butter (I like this kind)

1/2 cup ground flax seed

1/2 cup honey

1/3 cup of Nestle Toll House Triple Chocolate Morsels

That. Is. It.

Dump all of that into a bowl and stir. Then, dig your hands in and roll into bite-sized balls. Chill in fridge. Serve!

You could also press into a pan, chill, and then cut into bars if you’d like!

ENJOY!
