Daddy Makes Lactation Treats - Part 2: The No-Bake Lactation Cookie Balls


It's finally here. My first try on a lactation treat for my wife. If you noticed, I'm starting it easy by making this a no-bake recipe - it's a cop-out of sorts but at least it's a guarantee that anyone can do this on their own. 

The whole process was smooth-sailing - as in very easy - although our handheld electric mixer stopped working so I had to use some elbow grease in mixing the ingredients. It was easy enough but took longer than expected.

Overall, the results were okay but could have been better. The wife didn't like the slightly bitter aftertaste that the Malunggay leaves and Fenugreek provided. I'll probably remove those two ingredients in future batches. 

With just one "lactation ball", the wife's milk quality became creamier. At least this was successful in that regard and a fulfilling and surprising first try. 

If you're interested, here's my recipe:
