Boobie Balls

If you are breast feeding and wanting to increase your milk supply then this is the recipe for you 😊. There are many recipes for Boobie Biscuits out there but I wanted the benefits of increased milk supply without having to eat too many biscuits, leading to an increased body, if you get my drift.

These balls do actually work in increasing milk production, I know, I’ve tried them. It’s the brewers yeast that is the key ingredient in aiding milk production, do not substitute this for any other kind of yeast, the flaxseed meal is also important.

100g almond meal

100g dates finely chopped

10g coconut oil

30g oats

10g honey

3tsp brewers yeast

3tsp flaxseed meal

30g milk powder

1Tb boiling water

coconut and or extra almond meal to roll balls in

1.Mix all ingredients except water in a food processor until well combined.

2.Add water slowly while food processor is on.

3.Form into balls and coat in extra coconut, almond meal or leave plain.

You can adjust the amount of Brewers yeast in this recipe. The more you use the more your milk supply will be affected. It does have quite a strong taste though, think…Vegimite! In this recipe you can’t taste it and I don’t mind a little more, make one batch and see what you think before tampering 😜

5 Condensed Milk free Ball Recipes

Balls are great!  They are quick, easy, most are freezable and they are the perfect size for kids lunch boxes.  Here are five great healthy ball recipes for kids…well for big people too, but as they are not full of sugar they are great for kids 🙂

Banana Oat Balls

These do sound a bit odd at first but trust me these are amazing!!  You can leave out the choc chips or replace them with sultanas or anything else you like.  They are also yum with about 2Tbs of cocoa added to the mix.  This is a Thermomix recipe but they can easily be made in any food processor.

The secret to great Rissoles

Ok so according to the meal plan we had rissoles last night…in reality we had rissoles tonight 😉

I don’t make rissole very often even though I really quite like them. I think I’m traumatised by many a crumbled rissole stuck fast to the frypan or BBQ plate followed by hours of scrubbing to regain any resemblance of a non stick surface.

I didn’t have much confidence that tonight’s effort would be much different, especially when I realized we were out of eggs and the chooks didn’t come through with the goods. I was very nicely surprised though!

This is my recipe…from memory. Excuse the chuck it all in style of measurements 😉

2015/01/img_0823.jpg

500g mince
1 onion very finely chopped
3 spoons of tomato chutney
1tsp veggie stock concentrate (thermomix recipe)
1 handful coarse bread crumbs
1 Tbsp chia seeds

Mix everything together thoroughly with a fork, (I think this is one of the secrets I’ve stumbled upon) work the mince quite well, when you think it’s all mixed, mix some more until the mix has quite a smooth rather than crumbly texture.

Form into rissoles, again work each one thoroughly to ensure it is well stuck together.

Make sure your fry pan or BBQ plate is evenly well heated, once it is, turn it down to medium heat. Warm a glug of olive oil and then place each rissole in gently. Don’t move them now until the first side is cooked and you are ready to turn. Cooking them on medium heat seemed to help them cook together well without burning to the pan (secret number 2) Only turn 2 to 3 times.

Yum, enjoy! I hope these work as well for you as they did for me, Hubby has just informed me they were the best rissoles I’ve ever made, winning!
