Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!)

Notes

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.
