Funny story about the first time I made lactation energy bites
The funniest story happened the first time I ever made them. Andrew came home and I was still working on dinner. He was hungry and opened the fridge and saw the bites and popped one in his mouth. He then asked what they were and I simply said “Lactation Energy Bites”. His face was priceless and he ran to the trash can. “Why didn’t you tell me your milk was in them?”, he shouted! I couldn’t stop laughing as I tried to tell him there wasn’t breast milk in them. Lactation energy bites are supposed to HELP with milk production. It was hysterical.
What ingredients do you need for a lactation energy bites recipe?
This is seriously one of the easiest recipes you will ever make in your entire life. Grab a big container, throw in the oats, peanut butter, chocolate chips, honey, vanilla, and flaxseed. combine all together until mixed well. Then form into balls and sit on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put in fridge for them to set up and harden (typically 2-3 hours is fine). I like to leave my in the fridge to just grab and go. It’s literally that easy.
- 2 cups rolled oatmeal
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3/4 cup ground flaxseed
- 2/3 cup raw honey
- 2 tsp vanilla
- In a large bowl, add all ingredients.
- Stir until very well combined
- Using a small cookie dough scoop or your hands, roll into balls.
- Place on baking sheet.
- Place in fridge and let sit for 2-3 hours.
- Store in air tight container in the fridge.

Crunchy peanut butter will not hold these together well. Add an additional 1/4-1/2 cup of flaxseed if you really need an extra boost of milk production.
