Ready to learn the recipe for my latest addiction?
When we came home from the hospital, one of my friends dropped off a batch of these peanut butter oatmeal balls. She found the recipe on Pinterest, but changed a couple things. It was love at first taste the moment I bit into my first ball. Since then I make sure to always have these on hand as a quick snack.
After making the first batch I decided to add in some brewer’s yeast. Brewer’s yeast is known for helping with lactation and keeping a healthy supply, or possibly increasing if you need! I had made lactation cookies which were delicious but I found these balls to be “healthier” and a quick fix. When I have these regularly, I noticed I produce more milk when pumping. It’s like having a beer without getting tipsy. (this is a pro while taking care of your child) Plus, oatmeal is known to help with supply so this recipe is a win-win!
In the middle of the night when I am starving while feeding Carter they’ve become the perfect snack. Warning…they’re addictive!! And yes, you can have them even if you’re not looking to increase your supply or simply don’t add the yeast. Husband calls them my boobie balls
