No-Bake Chocolate Protein Snacks: Toddler Approved/Lactation Cookies

So these protein balls I started making as my go-to no-bake lactation cookie! Add a little brewers yeast and boom-lactation support!! My daughter is now expanding her palette so I cut these into tiny bites and she devours them! I make them for her without the brewers yeast now.

2 .T cacao (cocoa) powder
