Healthy no-bake lactation bites

These bliss balls are nutritious and delicious which will keep you on a healthy eating plan. They will give you a boost when you’re feeling peckish and low on energy.


These delicious and nutritious date and oat bliss balls are a PERFECT healthy snack for you and your little one. They are Kyrie's favourite mid morning snack. And because they get their sweetness from dates you have no worry of your baby having any junk food. Make them in bulk and freeze them so you have a stack of wholesome treats throughout the week. They also only take 5minutes to make which as a new mom any time gained is a blessing.

Ingredients

This recipe makes 12 balls

1/2 cup dates (about 4 dates)

2 cups rolled oats

3/4 cup desiccated coconut

1tbp of melted Coconut butter

I tablespoon of cinnamon

Method

  • I like to soak my dates over night to get them soft which is easier to blend but this isn't obligatory. You can just put them in a pot of water and bring to boil which also gets them softer.
  • Drain the dates and put the liquid into a container and set aside.
  • Place drained dates, coconut, coconut butter, oats and Cinnamon into a food processor. I use this fabulous NINJA.
  • Add roughly 1/4 of the date liquid to the mix and process (you may need a little more liquid than this, add it slowly until the mix holds its shape. If you accidentally add too much liquid add a little more of the other dry ingredients to balance)
  • Roll mixture into 12 balls and store in the fridge or freezer.
  • Roll in extra coconut if you're feeling extra sassy.Make extra/double and freeze them!!

Ingredients

Makes around 12 balls

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 table spoons cup of ground or milled flaxseed
  • 3 tablespoons brewer’s yeast
  • 1/2 cup of dates (around 4 dates)
  • 1 Table spoon of pumpkin spice butter
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of Almonds
  • dash of cinnamon
  • splash of water
  • Optional 1/4 cup of desiccated coconut

 


Method

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer add all ingredients. Mix on low speed until mixture is well combined. 
  2. Roll mixture into 2-tablespoon sized smooth balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place in the refrigerator for 2hours, over night or enjoy right away. Once the bites have set, transfer them to an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

The mixture can be pressed into an 8×8-inch baking dish and cut into bars, if desired.You can also add other nuts (such as pecans or walnuts) and ½ cup dried fruit.
