These amazing lactation energy balls came about when I was nursing my twin boys, bout 8 years ago. I was so desperate to have more milk so I can also give my baby in the nicu. I read that oats, flax seeds and nuts helps with milk production. So I wondered what would be a good way to incorporate all these ingredients besides a regular oat cookies loaded with tons of sugar, oils and flour. I started experimenting in my kitchen (as I usually do..) and soon enough I found all my freezer and pantry in one bowl! I basically combined everything that is good for a nursing mama to increase milk production. In my case, a new tired mom of twins!  I wanted a really healthy and nourishing  binder, so I used the best ingredient in my fridge, whole tahini paste. This, with some honey created a soft and rich flavor of halvah. When you add the crunch from the nuts it is just amazing, and to be more accurate, irresistible! I keep them in the freezer and every morning I would eat 1 or 2 of  while  I was getting ready for the day. I keep making them to this day (2024)! And I've kept making the while I gave birth to my other kids as well. . No more feeling tired or hungry. The most amazing part is that my older kids, the twins, are crazy about them too. And I really want to say that even if you aren't nursing I encourage you to make them for yourself to take to work or to have on the go. OR make them for someone who needs this for milk production, or just for a yummy Halvah treat!


1). In a food processor combine: walnuts, pecans, and almonds, pulse a few times to get nice medium chunks. (Not a fine powder, you want to keep the crunch.)

1). In a bowl place the oats, hemp seeds, flax, cocoa powder, salt, cinnamon...
Mix with a spoon and set aside.

2). In a glass bowl, combine the tahini paste, honey, chocolate chips, and coconut oil. Heat for about a minute in the microwave or stove, just to allow the chocolate to melt. 

3). Combine the wet and dry ingredients well and let sit for 10 minutes.

4). Prepare a coating buy chopping some almonds and pecans, about a half-cup each, or just shredded coconut.

5). In another bowl have some water and start forming the energy balls. Dip each one in the water for a second and then directly into the chopped nuts or shredded coconut. Place on a baking sheet and freeze for 2 hours or more. Then transfer to a zip-top bag or a container. Keep them in the freezer or fridge.

Note: If you chose to freeze them, allow sitting for 5 minutes before eating. OR, place in the microwave for 15 seconds just enough to be able to bight. They don't really need to be warm.
