No Bake Lactation Bites

no bake lactation bites

Just like I said with my milk makin’ cookies recipe, you don’t have to be the mother of a newborn to enjoy these. Those lactation cookies and these no bake snack bites just have wholesome ingredients which promote lactation. Trust me, these won’t turn you into a milk producing cow! lol.

There’s actually a special word for these kinds of foods and it’s called galactagogues. “Galacta-what?” Galactagogues are substances that naturally promote breast milk production. They generally include herbs or foods that increase a mother’s supply. While you can take them as supplements or teas, you can also consume them as delicious cookies or snack bites!

So, what foods are considered to be galactagogues?

  • *whole grains, especially oats/oatmeal
  • dark leafy greens (kale, spinach, broccoli)
  • fennel
  • garlic
  • chickpeas
  • *nuts and seeds, especially almonds
  • ginger
  • papaya
  • spices like cumin seeds, anise seeds, fennel seeds, and turmeric
  • *brewer’s yeast

The foods listed above with an asterisk * are included in these yummy snack bites.

I actually have an almost identical snack bite recipe from a few years back, but they don’t have brewer’s yeast and there’s a little less honey. I like this recipe better. The extra bit of honey make the bites easy to roll into balls, and add a natural sweetness without refined sugar.
