Milk Making Nut Butter Bombs

A staple on my menu, these are the ultimate milk making, fat rich snack to satiate cravings and boost milk supply. They are spiked with three powerful plant foods – brewers yeast, shatavari and black sesame seeds – all known milk makers.

Shatavari is a relative of asparagus and its name translates to "one thousand lovers" – if you're trying to make a baby it's also good for fertility! Essentially it makes everyone juicy juicy juicy...  Let me know if you try these out, if they boost your milk supply and/or help you on your conception journey!

Ingredients:  

½ cup raw almond butter

½ cup coconut oil

3 tbsp maple syrup or honey

2 tbsp brewers yeast

2 tbsp shatavari

1 tsp black sesame seeds

plus more to sprinkle

Instructions:

Melt the coconut oil by immersing the jar in hot water or warming in a dehydrator at 105F for 20 minutes. In a medium bowl mix the oil with the remaining ingredients. Blend with a handheld stick blender to remove lumps. Pour into silicone molds or into lined cupcake tins before sprinkling with the remaining black sesame seeds. Freeze for 20 minutes before removing from molds and storing in a jar in the fridge.
