Magical Lactation Cookie Balls

As a working lactating momma, sometimes I have a meeting that cuts into my pump time messing up my whole schedule. I also have days where I just forget to drink enough water, or fall asleep at 8pm skipping my last pump of the day... all of these things causing my supply to drop. When that happens I prescribe myself a few of these amazingly delicious cookie balls. I made the recipe up wanting something yummy that improved my milk supply but was also L O W C A R B, L O W S U G A R, H I G H P R O T E I N and full of F I B E R. I have a sweet tooth so a little dark chocolate curbs my cravings.

*You don't have to be lactating to eat these, the whole family can enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 eggs

1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

1/4 cup oat bran

1/4 cup flaxseed

1/4 cup chia seeds

1/4 peanut butter powder (or vanilla protein powder)

3 cups organic oats

1 tablespoon of stevia

2 tablespoons of dried fennel seeds (optional)

2 bananas

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl

In a separate bowl mash the bananas then add the 2 eggs and mix.

Combine all ingredients into a large bowl, mix with a wooden spoon until blended.

Form the batter into 1.5 inch balls and place onto a cookie sheet lined with parchement paper.

Bake the cookie balls for 10 minutes in the oven, serve room temp!

Makes 24 cookie balls

I store them in the fridge all week long and microwave them for 15 seconds before I eat them. They are such a guilt free treat!!!
