1 teaspoon vanilla extract

I was given this recipe by my lactation support centre for something tasty, quick and for energy, whilst I’m breastfeeding my baby. Some of ingredients contained - oatmeal, flax seeds and chia seeds - are especially good for milk supply as they are thought to enhance the breast milk production rate naturally.
The original recipe used dark chocolate chips and unsweetened coconut flakes. I swapped out dark for white chocolate, and replaced 2/3 cup of coconut flakes with 1 extra cup of oatmeal. They are vegan and gluten free.
If you like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups these are a slightly healthier version and for me just as tasty. Well ok not as tasty as the white chocolate Peanut Butter Cups but a nice alternative. If anyone makes these, tweet me or post on my latest Instagram picture @tanyatate, I would like to hear how you rate them.
