Homemade Oat Bars, why did I make these? Because, oats are suggested to help increase your milk supply when breastfeeding, which is something I've struggled with since Giuliana was so ill right after birth and I found that eating oats every morning since we were finally allowed to bring her home and she could receive treatment here really made a massive difference. However, taking care of a newborn and making myself a bowl of oats every morning, or even over night oats is not always a doable thing, and I found the days I couldn't make myself oats there was a marked difference in my supply. So, I got creative in the kitchen yesterday and made these instead, and they only took me 15min to make and 15min to bake.
My recipe includes of course oats, and sesame seeds (another food source that assists in milk supply), and a couple other items that I find yummy, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, peanut butter and a drizzle of white chocolate (this does not contain caffeine so it won't keep her awake) just to finish it off and add a little something sweet and yummy.
Now I've got my oats as part of a balanced breakfast which is generally eaten with 1 hand, or even, an easy go to snack for during the day.
