Superfood Quinoa Bars

QuinoaSuperfood quinoa is both nutrient dense, satisfying, and a powerful galactagogue. These simple bars are easy to make in advance and provide a powerful milk boost when you’re running low on energy. The addition of whole wheat flour in the non-gf recipe also ensures that you’re satisfied and don’t have any blood sugar dips, which can easily affect your milk supply.
