I have breastfed four babies, and let me tell you, it’s been one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. There is something so calming about nuzzling your babe as they have a snack — except when your milk supply takes a dip. That can cause lots of anxiety! It happens to everyone and can be related to diet (not getting enough of the right kinds of food), dehydration, stress, and other factors.

But, it can be remedied!

There are supplements, teas, certain foods, and COOKIES! I have made many batches of lactation cookies, but let’s be real here, everyone loves the DOUGH! So, I decided to come up with a great dough recipe that doesn’t need to be baked. Go ahead, eat all the lactation cookie dough, I give you permission.

The lactogenic goodies in this recipe are: almond butter and flour, brewers yeast, and fennel seed

Note: there is one ingredient that I have in my Lactogenic Smoothie Recipe that has been shown to increase milk supply, but adding it might turn the cookie dough a green color. For that reason, I left it out of this recipe (the photos would have looked funny, lol!). But, you can also add Moringa into these bites to give them a boost. I use THIS POWDER.

Yield: Makes approximately 28 cookie dough balls

Lactation Cookie Dough Bites

If you're breastfeeding and need a boost in your milk supply, try these delicious lactation cookie dough bites.


  • 1 cup creamy almond butter
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup brewers yeast
  • 2 Tbsps honey
  • 1 Tbsp ground fennel seed
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips


1. Combine all of the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.

2. Stir with a spoon at first, then use your hands to mix it really well.

3. Roll the dough into 1.5" balls, or whatever size you like.

4. Place them on a baking sheet and freeze them, this makes them easier to put into a bag for storage (so they don't just mush together into a big dough ball again).

5. Once frozen, put into a large freezer bag and keep in the freezer.

6. Enjoy as needed. I don't eat them every day, just when my milk supply takes a dip I will take out a few to munch on.

7. You certainly can store in an airtight container in the fridge, but they won't last as long that way.

8. It will be individual to how many you need to eat to increase your milk supply, everyone is different. I would start with 2-3 and see how it works for you and then adjust from there.
