These Healthy No-Bake Lactation Bites are a delicious, nutrient dense snack to promote milk production. Bonus for busy moms — these only take 15 minutes to make!
Servings: 28 bites
- 2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
- 1/4 cup brewer’s yeast replace with chia seeds or more flaxseed if you don’t want to use brewer’s yeast
- 1 (16-28 oz) jar all natural peanut butter or almond butter *
- 1/2 cup honey or pure maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
Place all ingredients (minus chocolate chips) into a large high powered food processor (or stand mixer) and process (or mix) until the mixture comes together.
Place into a large bowl then use your hands to knead in chocolate chips (or if using a stand mixer, just mix the chocolate chips in).
Scoop mixture into 28 balls using a cookie scoop, then place onto prepared baking sheet. Roll into smooth balls, if desired.
Place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Once the bites have set, transfer them to an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months.
Enjoy frozen, chilled, room temperature, or warmed in the microwave (my favorite!)
Nutritional information is calculated using a 16 oz jar of all-natural peanut butter and honey.
*If you use a 28 oz jar of nut butter (which I prefer) you'll get 40 lactation bites instead of 28.
