(( Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies/ Energy Bites ))

hello beautiful ones! trying to get in the better habit of posting one recipe a week here... without further ado, my most favorite/ easiest/ **one bowl** energy bite recipe of all time

I am constantly on the go and running from clients to meetings to grocery stores .... my mamas are constantly making new milk for their new babes, restoring their bodies from birth, and so often chasing after other older littles .... **you** may be too overwhelmed with your day to day life to even think about feeding yourself. it can be so hard to get in a nourishing snack and buying countless bars feels silly after awhile (though I am a self admitted bar queen)... enter in these gorgeous Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Nourishing Honey Cinnamon-y Vanilla-y Sea Salty rounds of goodness. they can easily be made to support lactation, or not (though the ingredients that do support lactation will NOT cause your husband/children/partner to lactate and **yes** I get this question VERY often) ➳

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies / Energy Bites  

** grab ONE bowl, because baby that’s all you’ll need

  • 2 heaping cups of gluten free Bob’s Red Mill rolled oats
  • 1 cup of organic crunchy/creamy ((all natural)) peanut butter (the all natural is key, none of that Jif/Skippy ish because boo you deserve better!! you want 2 ingredients, peanuts and salt das it).. I like Santa Cruz, Costco organic, or Smuckers Naturals if you mustttt
  • 1/2 cup local honey (maple syrup is also delicious/ good vegan substitute) 
  • 1 cup of dark chocolate chips 
  • 1/4 cup of organic ground flaxseed
  • 1 TBSP of grassfed collagen (omit for vegan and swap out with some Four Sigmatic Lion’s Mane Powder // for vegetarian try marine collagen)
  • 1 overflowing tsp of good vanilla extract
  • big ole shake of cinnamon  (good for blood sugar stabilization)
  • full pinch of good sea salt  
  • 1 TBSP Brewer’s Yeast (optional add in for promoting lactation but also VERY high in B vitamins and selenium which are excellent for brain health + energy levels... it’s a superfood) 

 ➳ mix it all together with your hands and with love! it’s a good forearm workout and hand mixing just makes cooking/baking better... roll into bites/balls of your chosen size, store in big beautiful glass jars next to your favorite nursing spot, at your desk, or in your fridge. enjoy!
